Black Women United!

Oh, 2020.  You were supposed to be lit—a year filled with holidays on the weekends and a pivot into a new decade. You done went and got petty on us with that “lit” part. The world is on fire with a global pandemic, one of the most consequential presidential elections I’ll probably see in my lifetime, and back-to-back instances of racial injustice. (Lord, what did we do to strikeContinue reading “Black Women United!”

Apply Black Pressure

I’ve been trying to find the words. The right words. Then I realized there are none. I know the world is in dissaray right now, discord, and there is apparent division. There is so much tension, hurt, pain, trauma, struggle, and stress. When you witness a human being in distress, struggling to breathe, struggling toContinue reading “Apply Black Pressure”

Inspiration

After watching Self Made, a series that was inspired by the life of Madam C.J. Walker on Netflix, I felt more empowered and stronger. It also left me feeling like I’m not doing enough. Yes, I do many things now. However, I’m not going as hard as I could be going. I could be moreContinue reading “Inspiration”

My soul is the keeper of my words. It tells me what to write, what to say. I can’t control what it concocts. I move when it tells me to. I move wherever it tells me to. When it compels me, I listen. The sound is deep. I am its vessel designed by intricate parts.Continue reading “Deep”

  My eyes latched onto to yours, and I got a glimpse of your soul. Our souls connected and created one. The energy we share is electric. I can feel when your vibe is off, and you can feel when my vibe is off. When our minds meet, the dialogue is eclectic. I get lostContinue reading “Soul Mate”

I gained a considerable amount of weight, and I just wanted zero parts of my new body. At the time, I didn’t fully understand nor did IContinue reading “Fix Me”

Body

    Here I am standing naked in front of you. My hair is big and free. My warm caramel melanin soaked skin is doused in coconut oil and is glowing. Have you ever seen beauty like this? Have you ever smelled anything so deliciously sweeter? My breasts are voluptuous and so full. They alwaysContinue reading “Body”

Aunt C

Death landed on our doorstep yet again. But this time, it came for my beloved Aunt Cookie. My Aunt and I had a very special bond that could never be broken. No not even in death. She was my second mother and she called me her “Poopsie”, yes she did LOL. She called me thatContinue reading “Aunt C”

Queens V

She really needs no introduction. But let me tell you a little something about her… She is a unique treasure. A gem of a beauty and  filled with sparkling passion. When in rare form, she holds the power to eat you up and spit you out if she so chooses. IF SHE CHOOSES. She smells likeContinue reading “Queens V”
