BLOG: normal voice

Hi readers,
Thank you for reading my work. I believe every so often I should approach my platform with my normal voice, not my poetry voice, because it leads to misinterpretation on who I am as a human being. As I attempt to grow as Writer, I quickly realize the beauty, difficulties, and burdens that may arise. No one genuinely knows me behind this platform, which can lead to confusion, especially because there are no facial expressions to match.

Social media is such a distraction to my artistry. I’m constantly in and out. Some days the media inspires me, while other days it eats me away.

Also, yes I do delete several of my poems. I’m do my best to maintain my best work on this site while honoring the ideas that surface. Any artist and human can relate that we are our own critics. For this reason, I look forward to dancing this Spring to demonstrate the most raw components of myself in a different light. My first love is dance, it’s my passion.

As I grow and mature, I seek methods to balance artistry and normal life. It’s a challenge, but I’m keeping a positive attitude.

Thank you so much for reading,
A

Cold, white, winter

I kissed her that one time
long ago,
I didn’t mind
It was cold, white, winter
It snowed.
I kissed her that one time
Long ago,
Since then
I never let her go
A connection
A collection
I collect our connections
Never let go
It was cold, white, winter
It snowed.

Pearls

I twirl
I twirl
Only because I am not from this world.
I twirl
I twirl
Nude with pearls

One more,

What is stopping you?
You.
Who follows you?
You.
One more dimension
One more
One more
One more
Who is heart for?
You.

Coil

She ran her fingers through my hair
Played with the coils
I waited for you
I can’t keep running from you
She ran her fingers through my hair
Played with the coils
I waited for you
Every night She waits to run her fingers through my hair
I coil
I coil
in her bed.
I coil like my hair
