Atlanta, Georgia
staring at the clumsy moon
that made night fall
and left the earth bruised
the sky is scarred
with the darkest of hues
battered and beaten
blackened and blue

the day concludes
as if life has gone
she deads sobriety
when left alone
and wallows in regret
as time drags on
her secrets
are like a sagging thong
bottomless

struggles with low self-esteem
lead to her experimenting
now she gets high
off any and everything
adding mile after mile
to her traveling
she went from lost in the crowd
to following boyfriends
through medicated clouds
where the highs never end
but the lows never go
so its a catch 22
and 21 was too young
to deal with grown woman issues
like abuse

there’s nothing sexy
about being passed out
wet in the face
with knees on the ground
tending heavy tears
that pulled sweat down
crying a river
ready to drown
listening to drake
hating the sound
that’s all she remembers
about last night at compound

her monday mistakes matured
from truth or dare
to roulette on tuesday
with no bullets to spare
Russian
taking shots too fast
chasing wounds on wednesday
begging thursday to come back
she has a weekend weakness
that keeps her hung up on hangovers
the rock star lifestyle
is hard to get over
and so is staying sober

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
