If I saw you again, I don’t know what I’d say, I don’t know what I do. I play the mental image of us meeting at times, but to me it never turns out too good. You see, you hid me from everyone for as long as I could remember. I wasn’t up to par…

  Segregation and discrimination? What has happened to our nation? We’re the land of the free, and the home of the brave. So what has happened to our brothers and our sisters, screaming nothing but fear and pain? Where has our freedom gone? We’re dubbed one of the greatest nations in the entire world, so…

I should’ve never allowed you to speak. I should’ve walked away from the moment you held my hand. I don’t know why I let you continue the tricks you wanted to play with my mind. Continuous heartbreaks left me dead inside, left my heart shriveled up inside my chest. So how come whenever I saw…

disclosure: this is something I wrote in regards to the attack against the LGBT community that occurred in Orlando, FL on June 12, 2016 . As a member of the LGBT community, this attack saddened me to the very core, it shook my world and the world of many others. May the ones who’ve passed…

We were just two souls trying to find happiness in each other’s bodies. We explored each other like maps and traced our fingertips along the cities that laid across our bare bodies. It was just you and I, hiding in the corners of your room, playing hide & go seek as we searched for love…

   you seem to be playing hide and go seek with the sun as the clouds rain over your bruised body. you’re covered in dirt and leaves, screaming “come out, come out wherever you are.” But all you ever get in return is the echo of thunder as it booms in your ears. All you…

With her legs wrapped around my waist, she whispered “love me as I am, & take me as I am, for no one else ever has.” Her expression seemed so innocent, she was in love with who I was, how couldn’t I take her for what she was? I smiled as gently and selflessly as…

Like a snake, she slithers her way to me. And with her eyes as wide as saucers, she falls down to her knees. Time seems to slow down, and people seem to freeze. The darkest soul in the room gasps aloud and says, “save me please.” And as I watch her breathe for the last…

Tongue out and eyes wide. She got me all sorts of hypnotized. Got men saying all sorts of prayers. She’s about to make me lose air. I can feel her blue eyes pierce my very soul from all the way across the room. I could almost feel my impending doom. Everyone knows she’s the darkest…

You act like you love her, and you swear that you need her. But darling, you just need someone to make you sweat out your fever. Did you tell her you loved her from the moment you laid eyes on her? Or are you gonna tell me it was all a blur? You know, I…

I just feel like crawling into a ball and disappearing from the face of the earth. Time just keeps ticking but I feel like I haven’t gone anywhere. I’m scared that maybe I’ll live this life forever. I’m scared that maybe I won’t make it. I’m scared that maybe time will keep ticking and I’ll…
