Representation

Don’t let the misrepresentation of love become the understanding of love. Disrespect is a mishandling. Dishonor is dismantling. Don’t let the misrepresentation of love become the understanding of love. Love is sweet. Self-love makes us complete. Don’t let the misrepresentation of love become the understanding of love. Confusion is draining. Pain is staining. Don’t let […]

How Many Times (Part 2)

It doesn’t matter how many times we look into each other’s eyes, we get caught up like the first time we said hello. It doesn’t matter how many times we look into each other’s eyes, everything around us disappears and we overtake the atmosphere. It doesn’t matter how many times we look into each other’s […]

Protect Your Dreams

Breathe life into your dreams. Breathe the breath of confidence that sustains under pressure and fortifies yours dreams. Stand firm in your dreams. Stand firm with consistency as it cultivates and strengthens against the crippling of complacency. Protect your dreams. Don’t let your dreams die by the suffocation of doubt. Nurture them with the presence […]

How Many Times (part 1)

It doesn’t matter how many times we say hello, each time your voice touches me with a gentleness that calms my restless mind. It doesn’t matter how many times we say hello, each time we hug your embrace is filled with a solicitude that encourages me in that moment. It doesn’t matter how many times […]

Opportunity

I learned how to smile for the first time and began to see life as an opportunity rather than a consequence. Joy became my guide and laughter my path. I’m on a new journey as an unsurpassed and unconquerable version of myself. This is when I fell in love… with me. ——————————————- New book coming […]

Moments Like These

Forever is only the beginning. Always without ending. Truly living life has just started. Two people together never parted. Disagreements leaving as soon as they came. Understanding brings thoughts one in the same. Arms around each other in a heartfelt embrace. Moments like these could never be replaced. Never turning back these feelings will always […]

Waiting for the Moment

I’ve been waiting for the moment when I can be more than what I’m expected to be. I’ve been waiting for the moment when I can see my value. I’ve been waiting for the moment when I’m able to smile on the inside as well as the outside I’ve been waiting for the moment when […]

Paths

Untied strings on the shoes that sat by the door. Four in total. Two in pairs. To the left and to the right, were the remnants of the path we walked. Two hands holding. One evening conversation. Reflecting back on this path of our lives that brought us to this point. One kiss. A lifetime […]

Things to Come (part 3)

Together they are hope in its purest form. Naturally flourishing with the gentle touch of intimacy, they are love’s perfect harmony. Always selfless, they thrive with a bond that covers their hearts with an armor of honor and a shields them with undying strength. They are evidence of things as they should be. They are […]
