Poetry (The Raconteur)...Happy birthday.

I fell in love with you at age 6,
The very night I looked up at the sky and saw the beauty of the stars.
That very night,
I penned down the most beautiful thing then in my eyes,
Created by one of the greats, Celine Dion.
Every night in my dreams, 
I see you, I feel you.

How beautiful you were and still are,
How beautiful you make expressions come to life,
How beautiful you …
You know I can go on and on to tell you how beautiful you are but still wouldn't find the right expression to tell you how beautiful you are.
You know you're my saving grace,
You know you changed my suicidal thoughts the very day I penned down The Poem from my last collection of art.
It felt like the Holy Grail.

I remember the first day I expressed my art when I was 16,
It felt beautiful, 
Then I realised how powerful words are,
Then I thought about how bad my dad must have abused my mom and that shit turned me into a real sicko.

But Solace I found in you on my pursuit of happiness,
Hopes and dreams you sold to me for my talent,
Hopes, dreams and reality you sold to me for my art.
I am Scripturient,
You are,

Heaven's Angel

Countless dreams of heaven, I’ve had but never get to see the big picture in motion. She oozes of heritage that gives life, One that gives life to the dying and eternity to the living.
She is of Selah, worthy to behold, You’re not of human that crown queen, But, Of goddess that make gods.
I wonder what she thinks of me? I’m having not to jump the gun and move faster than my shadow. I doubt she even knows this? I doubt she even knows what she’s worth? Does she have the problem of the coloured girl? How do you define a black woman’s worthiness to herself? Perhaps I’m the missing piece for her realisation. I often say this but this time I feel it different.
I hope she knows I want someone to talk to and listens, As it goes vice-versa, making for deep-level interactions. What is biology without chemistry? I crave telepathy interactions, I’m ready to risk it all again to have this. What is a bond without elasticity? And if I yet again lose myself, I’d live with the fulfilment of my pursuit of happiness.

It's 1AM, As I think back 5 hours ago, Watching grown folks indulge in the idea of marriage. Such a beautiful thing when its true essence is given, However the case, The reverse isn't the same.
I felt like a bird on a mountain top, Looking down with a vision of that of an eagle trying to see what I can get from it. I listened as they rambled about adult jokes.
A soothsayer wasn't needed as the drift in class could be told. The song on the radio is sung along by a wife, With lyrics that seem to shred fragments of the heart. A beautiful voice but with emotion and pain littered around it. The rest said their good nights to their spouse over the phone.
Standing over on my balcony as the clock is 17 minutes away from hitting 1AM, Lonely as hell, But somehow I find confidence and comfort when I seldom let my thoughts run loose, Days when they are controlled, I seem to run low on the double C. My heart seems like an uncaged beast, But my soul is angelic. I hate when this shit happens.
Pieces of memo…

Future Daughter (The Raconteur)

I heard Bruce Willis say; "God gives us children so we can have roses in December". But I know with you, he'll give me a garden full. That's a bounty for the bountiful,
From a birds eye view, I'll watch you grow into a Wonder Woman, One that knows how to mend a broken heart but often times take charge of situations. I'll groom you up into an African woman, You'll have a strange name that holds earthly meanings of your root, your culture and tribe. When people laugh at your own, Sing cheers of Hallelujah because they only mock the continuity of life.
I'll have men chase unicorns then feel butterflies in their stomach,  Before they can even come close to tasting your sweetness, sweetness. Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, I have a sense of eunoia writing this because I know you hold an allure, I'll breed you into Psalm 31,  So virtuousness will be the order of your day. I know you'll be a logophile, I pray you don't become an eccedentesiast, Whenever you feel down, …
