BLOOM

BLOOM

As a woman, I am the portal to life on earth
God entrusted me to carry a child from conception to birth
Like a seed in the ground waiting for its first leaf to sprout, I Bloom

There’s not much food and my heart starts to weep…inside I have 5 children screaming
I’m ready to eat
So with a whisk and a spat, I created all of that Like a Thanksgiving Dinner, It Bloom

He was charming and spoke very well
He always held the doors and pulled out my chair.
He always sent kind messages wishing me farewells yet as soon as I conformed to his kindness…he disappeared out of thin air
The messages stopped and the phone didn’t ring I guess he was only searching for a winter fling
Yet Spring is around the corner and the birds are singing their favorite tunes
Like a blossoming flower….I continued to Bloom.

I read the Bible and study the word
It provides food to my roots and waters my soul
In ups and downs I stay a ground like a
determined flower with deep roots underground
I shall Bloom.

Just let me light my cigarette fo’ I die and I’ll tell you what happened (strike, light and inhale) she blows the smoke in the air with a sigh as she begins to talk, this is what happened, I was telling him how I felt and I actually poured my heart out to him. Now you know thats some ish I normally don’t do.
(Takes another puff of life, blow)
Do you know he responded with only two maybe three words after I gave him an essay of feelings from my heart and thats all I get is two dry throat ass words
(Puffn and talking)
‘oh really’ thats when I realized he don’t care for me and I felt used. (Sniffled) So, I slapped his face and ran out the door. I must’ve dropped my cigarettes on the way out, I was going mad without my cigarettes.

Without Love

Love is a learned behavior
and I missed that lesson
Long time ago

So now Im trapped in
A Loveless love affair
With no place to go

Except Up to the sky
Where everyone receives love
from the Most high

Yet we need tangible love
The kind of love that touches
the core of your soul

and holds you when
Time gets rough
Like the Winter cold

And hot summer nights
Eventually he appears
and speaks
baby it’ll be alright

As he reads my story
Through my tears
he is creating my glory
As I reflect back thru the years

That I missed out on love
and felt lonely as a dove
In a pond full of ducks

I have come to realize
He was saving me
for someone special
not just any ole schmuck

So It all makes sense
my past with out love
Because I now know
My LOVE
He was sent from above.

Death to Relationships

Two people met and a relationship was born
Everything was there except intimacy
No sex no forehead kisses
Just two people laying there
Misunderstood
nothing was really bad
yet nothing was good

He was concerned with him
I was concerned about us
His words did not coincide
So there goes my trust

I’ve tried countless times
To become someones wife
Soon as the relationship
Is harvested
the crops Died

I read in the bible
God bless those who are single
And those who are married
Im holding a ceremony
Celebrating my singleness
No horse and carriage

Im content with myself
I trust who I am
I can focus on life
And control the cam
That depicts the picture
Of who I truly am

Today is the day
We will celebrate
The funeral of relations
please no tears
Lets toast with a smile, Cheers
To the death of
Relationships
