It's not that I have forgotten you
It's just that when you left & closed the door behind you,
I ripped open my chest
& hid the key beneath my ribcage
That way I could remember how painful it was to love you
And not to go back
Never breathe in the chaos
because you will choke on humanity’s lack of being humane
They will turn you into a tragedy that is only written down to sell books
and not to save hope
They will pull woes to the surface of your chest
and convince you that you’re only living to die
They will use your insecurities to cut ankle
and make you believe you ain’t got nothin…
Nothin to stand on
They will write the chaos on your skin
like it’s your identity
And not just a part of your wholeness
And if you let them,
they will brand you hopeless
So don’t you let them"
Kiss me like summer...
Back when the streets were safe...
Before paper soldiers
and Scarface wanna BEs
littered the block
Late night conversations
about what we would do if we could do...
Some unholy thangs that pull the religion from our throats
that choke moans from our brown bayous
that mix like head boards and R. Kelly in the rain
that spill into fantasies being pimped out by our hearts ...
I apologize for taking you for granted
Haphazardly thinking you would always be there
But now I cherish you
Reach back for me...
Just one more time
And I swear I'll be more careful with your possibilities..."

And when the loneliness sets in
on a power trip about possessing the world,
you may cry for the moment...
But when tomorrow finds you,
so will the opportunity to love someone
who loves you back...
