Genre: Love, Romantic, Life, Rhyme War In Between The Two by Demarco Singleton Stuck in between the two and having no clue what to do. You ask yourself, is it worth it? Is it worth breaking a heart that has such great purpose? Yet you find the distraction growing even greater but you feel you should tend to that later, but in reality you have to take action now. You have to break down, crazy as it may sound but it’s the truth. Listen to your heart and mind and analyze what you need to do. Yes it may be hard but now the outcome is up to you. Sit down and think. You’ve created something great and something that you potentially hate has come into your life and has filled your mind with things that are way beyond your trait. So your mind begins to race and your heart beats in an inconsistent pace that’s when you’ve grown to have doubts, now your mind and heart is in an unwanted place. Take a deep breath and balance out the situation. You realize lust has started a war and you’ve been exposed with no ammo. You know you have to fight back, so you suit up your love with some camos. A day without your love is a day without air, lust is such a competitor but there’s no way it can compare. With that realization, love defeats lust with no problem.

Grow in your love and fight for what it’s worth, cause lust is an obstacle but with love it has no birth. * * * * * Deadline for POETRY Festival … Continue reading

Everyday, when I tell you to be careful,

I’m saying it because this world doesn’t love you, no
Because you are only 8 now but soon you will be older
And then baby boy, the world will be much colder
They will not see you as I do,
with your warm eyes and caramel skin,
with your blue-rimmed glasses and unfunny jokes,
the curls in your hair and easy smile, no.
They see you as a Black Man. Continue reading
There were two seasons
I sensed it the day we met
Before her and after her
Before her I walked alone
Before her I was sad
Jealous I was of the couples I saw
On the street, holding hands Continue reading
Love profound, how amorous it sounds!
It’s a radiant sunflower that blossoms to smile.
In love, you’re a lily that sprinkles radiance and light.
Like the gambolling lamb, soars your spirit and mind. Continue reading
