Chocolate Gold

Ever had chocolate gold?

Its more than a flavor that tingles the tongue. It drizzles down your throat and strums your lungs. It plays the piano with your ribs and this type of gold fills your heart valves up so you can live. Chocolate Gold, it’s richer than milk…its the reason why my waist is small and nestled upon my voluptuous hips. My thighs not to far behind as they compliment my high rise. My shoulders are strong and they keep my structure straight. Don’t get it twisted like my locks, I’m educated with this shape. Im authentic from my fro’ down to my feet and I love…..the way God created me, I am Chocolate Gold and Im forever sweet ~ KaLon

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.

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.

The Naked Me

I want him
to love
me for me
with no
accessories
no make up
no nails
not even
a weave
I hope my
Heaven sent
man loves…

The NAKED Me

My skin isn’t
flawless
My body
isn’t toned
My head is
big and
my feet
is long
Yet my heart
is strong
and she
still holds on
to find the
one who
Truly belongs to

The Naked Me

Who are you
and where do
you live
I would travel
the world
down to
the last city
In hopes to
find the one
God created
to love
me for me
whole heartedly.

The Naked Me
