Justice for Breonna Taylor

As I lay in bed my mind can’t help but drift off to the worlds current events. The killing of unarmed black men, women and children at the hands of the police. The sad truth is, this is nothing new. The only difference is there’s a huge spotlight on it because of technology and the public is demanding that these officers be held accountable for their actions when unjustifiable force is used. One case in particular that keeps running through my mind is the Breonna Taylor case. The narrative is the cops “thought” they were there to pick-up a drug…

This Little Light of Mine

I turned over and I immediately screamed from the pain. I was burning bad. I looked down and realized my skins was rubbed off. I sit up to grab water and I literally could feel my skin pulling apart. The first thing I thought was they said this shit was easier than chemotherapy. Let’s just say they lied. I get up to grab the bottle of Tylenol with codeine to ease the pain so I can get my day started. After about twenty minutes the pain subside barely but enough to get out of bed to grab coffee. By time…

Our New Norm: COVID19

Good Day people. Happy Sunday to you all. It’s been a minute since I’ve written anything. You would think with all this free time that I’ve had because of covid19 I would’ve been writing my happy little heart away. For me, when I became overwhelmed or consumed with to many thoughts or emotion. I usually stop in my tracks. Almost paralyzing me. In most cases I just need quiet time to processes what’s going on, so for weeks I had nothing. Most of you know that I’m battling breast cancer. In March, the week before the majority of the country…

Rebirth

It feels like it never ends. Being beaten down trying to catch a win. I’ve always been relentless in my stance, always moving forward with my plans. These plans often have me on the sacrificing end. Never on the forefront, always holding scraps. It’s with these pieces I piece together what I can. Letting others walk away with the richness they took from my hands. I just stand and I watch. It’s not that I don’t see. I just sometimes refuse to accept reality. As these words flow from my heart I know that this self harming has to stop.…

Pregame

Your hands on my butter pecan skin. An open invitation, you’re always invited in. As I elevate myself on your wooden seat. Palms on your chest feeling your heartbeat. Rotation of my hips and our lips meet I’ve been waiting for your kiss and licks all week. Aggressive tugs and pulls, Ive never been to a rodeo but I’m a pro at riding a bull. I think I’ll lay on these satin sheets, if you’re tired take a break and eat. Feast like you never have before, you know I’m daddy’s little H….. I’m coming down down down and my…

John & Chaunice (Summer of 94)

It was summer time and I was so happy that we would be able to spend more time together since school was out. John and I decided to meet at his house. That’s when he informed me that he would be leaving the country with his aunt and Levi. Initially when he said it I said okay, it’s no big deal but when he said he would be traveling to Singapore I almost died. I cried out Singapore! How will I see you and speak to you? He said that he would be leaving in two weeks. I was so…
