~Drunk in Love~

woke up with an amazing hangover!

nothing to get over

but your Love had me stumble walking & talking with a slur

i knew i felt a lil tipsy

& every time that you were near me

i felt myself getting more & more dizzy

i’m intoxicated by your love

my tolerance can’t go up

you got that potent, uncut, A-1

Sweeter than Rum

you make me feel like i’m floating on a cloud!

& until i hit the ground!

i think i’ll order another round!



you’re so dope!

much more than chronic

it’s ironic cause you’re my rock!

& why i’m hooked on you like phonics

i’m a junky for your love

you are my drug!

i’m so addicted

i can’t kick it


~Brown Penny~

I whispered, ‘I am too young,’

And then, ‘I am old enough’;

Wherefore I threw a penny

To find out if I might love.

‘Go and love, go and love, young man,

If the lady be young and fair.’

Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,

I am looped in the loops of her hair.

O love is the crooked thing,

There is nobody wise enough

To find out all that is in it,

For he would be thinking of love

Till the stars had run away

And the shadows eaten the moon.

Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,

One cannot begin it too soon.

~William Butler Yeats~

who would believe them wingedwho would believe they could bebeautiful        who would believethey could fall so in love with mortalsthat they would attach themselvesas scars attach and ride the skin sometimes we hear them in our dreamsrattling their skulls        clicking their bony fingersenvying our crackling hairour spice filled flesh they have heard me beseechingas I whispered into my owncupped hands        enough not me againenough        but who can distinguishone human voiceamid such choruses of desire
