Heart racing, I'm
aching...so much
Pain
Fear of the
unknown
Somebody please,
Help me!
Trapped in a world
Of grief and loss
How could you not
Be real?
Hands shaking,
I can't touch
Blood boiling,
I'm about to faint
Eyes blazing, full
Of haze
Crying tears of
Blood
Vision gone
Coughing up words
Of love
Yet, feeling so much
Hate
Head pounding,
I can't think
Ears ringing,
I can't hear
Body numb,
I can't feel
World shattered
Nothing left....
Lifeless
Meaningless
Breath taken me
Loosing you
Loosing me
Loosing we
Slowly
Drowning
Vital signs gone
Accepting the
Abyss
Happiness gone
No more dissecting
The known
As I cradle the
Strength of grief
Drifting
Drifting
Drifting
Gone

My sista

the prognosis for "dying love" is always grim....you took me through all the emotional/physical changes (been there b 4) that overtake us when the love, our very breath, is gone.

Say that!

Thank you Poet!

after reading this several times, I look back on ma own "Diagnosis". Umm sis like Ms. A said sometimes it can be so grim, but you gotta hold out for we know not what the next day holds.

No doubt a very tight piece!!

I felt the descending motion of loss in this piece. The physical display of this piece on the page..lends itself nicely to the message

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
