Why do I always get the short end of the stick 

Love in all forms and the guys I come across are too slick 

Mouth full of words persuading 

And shady 

Quick to make u trip n fall by the grace of his deception

Connections connecting the wrong dots

Leaving hopeless spots and filling the wrong voids… 

Falling in love with lies 

And he never complies to my hearts standards

Stuck to watch the haves and I have not

Heart twisted in knots 

And the vessels to my heart blocked

Why must I fall for the wrong one…

No fairytales

My heart cries from lies yet untold
My heart sold copies of a fairytale I wanted to live of my own

Fear drew me into a sunken place held me captive to the devils face.. 

I lived in my own reality numb of every fallacy 

Life tried to choke me and beat Me out of my misery… 

Tried to scare me of living Vividly 

I remember every situation that suffocated me

Took breath from me.. 

Took the stride from under my feet

 but I got up with scars

Blood dripped on my behalf,  my heart raced,  my mind was lost… But the sun keep shining as if there was no darkness

All my wounds told stories of a life I could be proud of because it made me and didn’t break me

But it carried me and didn’t shake me. 

I live a life that I didn’t want

Just another soilder

Not afriad to fight

I draw my sword to protect me on endless nights

Morning Sex

Tossing… turning.. 

Yearning for the consistency in your touch 

Building up aggression for a perfect love session . I just want your affection soft kisses while firmly gripping on everything you’ve been missing

My senses hightned, while I’m fighting 

Resisting every move u make,  knowing in my head all I want u to do is make my soul shake…  Seductive earthquakes

Shaking and breaking down walls releasing the flow of my milkshake… The sun shining putting the perfect glow to our bodies,  birds chirping on the outside, as I roll over grip the window pane,  u planting kisses on my neck is driving me insane

Moans in slow motion while we induldge in sensual commotion

Body waves like we’re sailing on the Atlantic ocean as u slowly drown in our love making early…… IN THE MORNING

​I found myself stuck in the wilderness


And clothed in vulnerablilty

My thoughts spoke an unfamiliar language 

My mind tainted from my circumstances 

I thought to myself how many chances do I get to get it right before my heart splits

Never to reshape or reform

Damaged from my past 

just another atmospheric storm

Winds came to sway me

To knock me down

I stumbled,  I fell,  I hit the ground

Lefts helpless in situations with no one around to be found 

Usually it’s me running to the rescue of those I love in need

But KNOCKED to my feet 

Selfish souls forgot about “she” and left her out to suffer and bleed 

That she was me! 

This was the time where I realized

 that too much of me was not appreciated 

That too many boundaries of selfishness was not reciprocal 

I was too selfless which left me in the end alone in distress

Sucked of all energy with none to give my self

Injured physically, emotionally scorned, abandonment taunted me and haunted me like the Ghost of my Mothers past 

it made me ..

but it brought back those dark moments when I thought the hurt was “everlasting”  

casting a spell on This angel because I was broken without the proper casting

People don’t understand behind every smile there’s a story,  behind every laugh there’s history of pain that made us of who we are 

Adversaries chased me,  robbed me of my peace 

leaving me to “one”by “one” 

pick up the pieces of me that shattered along the way

With those pieces ,

were pieces of my Faith

Molded back together to strengthen, to fold, but not BREAK ! ✊✊✊👑

Perfect Woman

She’s understanding

She listens

She doesn’t judge

She gives tough love and supports you

She creates sunshine in your storm

She’s your blanket on a cold day

She’s your comfort zone

The sweet to your sour

Light to your Darkest hour

She’s the shoulder ud rather cry on

She gives you hope when all hope is gone

The Melody to your perfect song

She’s a brat for your attention

The perfect headache u can’t get rid of

She haunts your thoughts

Stalks your dreams

Everything about her draws you in

From the way her curves compliment her dress

To the way her lipstick makes u jealous

Her scent stays with u

Her smiles,puts peace in your heart

Find her…

Keep her…

Make her happy…

And never let her out of your sight

For a blind man knows when he has something good

But the man who sees….fails to notice the perfect woman right in front of him
Standing there all along

Written By: Shantinque Sims

Stop passing her up, and settling for less!

And if u have her…keep her!

And if u see her..better get her !!💜

Make ART with me ….

Finger tips stroke my body softly

Different colors, magically brushed against me…I told him let me be your canvas….put your favorite color in your favorite spots

Intensely painting a picture in your mind but creating a masterpiece so divine

Be so kind to go in every crease

Outline me….

Abstractly make love to me with the music from your hands touching every key like a piano

Make them dance on my physique

Then stand back and critique your work…

hold me

Embrace this work of art….

Your work of art….

Neon strokes of lust….

Asymmetrically thought out…

Getting turned on because as your hands paint this picture my mind is painting its own…

Silent moans as each stroke takes a stroll of its own….

My lady humps and bumps u caresses

Took away my stress and finessed my feelings and made them your own ….

You Molded me into a piece of art u can admire,be hung on your wall of seduction

We made art with no discussion

His world..My Universe

​In his arms is where I wanna be..

Breathing in his existence..
Cuddled in his desires

My moon and stars

He created a universe I dwelled in

Being the light to my dark sky he was the healer to my pain..

He cradled my madness

Saddness disappeared when the touch of his hand brushed against my forehead…

Kisses polished me 

He gave me an everlasting glow 

The smile he gave me when he stared in my eyes was magical….

Beautiful like the night sky.

His eyes lit up like bulbs on a Christmas tree…

He opened me up like presents on Christmas day

Hugs so tight when I wanted him to stay…

To never leave my side…

To be with me always

​Ashes to ashes ,mouth to dust.  Series 4 of 4


Smoke signalled the sight of the disaster

Plastered tradegy on my face

Painful thoughts hard to erase

Trying to figure out how this man I loved could be so cruel

Flash backs of how sweet he use to Be

Was it really him?

Could this really be?

Armored with love thinking it could withstand a good fight….

Shield couldn’t protect me

I tried to become invincible

But his words were powerful

Punctured me deep

Slowly ..

He turned from good to evil 

Had me wrapped in his spell

But dispersed whispers from hell

I could never tell if he was having a good or bad day…

My presence seem to agitate him in every way..

No matter what I’ve done…no matter what I’d say

His actions of consistency seemed to sway..

My mind tangled on the thought of how he got this way…

confused on how he turned 

 From sweet to sour….

Our love prepared a funeral..

Said its good byes..

I crossed my heart

As our love died…

Burned alive and killed by his words..

The smoke settled

And all he left me was a mouth full of ashes…
