Cake

As I cut into the Center

Of the Red Velvet Cake

I saw a ring

He was on the floor

Eyes glistening

Lips smiling

Hand holding out

Marry me Clarissa

Tears in my eyes

Lips quivering

Hands clasping around the ring

I can’t

Feet took me into the street air

Heaving like I was drowning

Why did I not love him

Why could I not say yes

Blur

You are a Blur

A dream of the night

A fantasy of the mornin’

You came like a flood

Into my life

Then poof

You were gone

Before my heart could skip its beat

Or my mind understand fact

You moved too fast

Left me wailing your loss

Like a blurry image in traffic

I saw you leave me

I still dream of you, you know

 

Betrayed

“Please don’t reject me tonight” he breathed onto her lips

“I…” she stammered

“I…I want…you to kiss me” she exhaled “Please…”

In the moment he pulled her chin up and kissed her with everything bubbling inside him.

The desparation, the need, the love mingled with lust. All he wanted was her, all he needed was her kiss and embrace.

She responded melting into him, letting her body and emotions speak one language. A language that her kiss spoke into his lips. Willing everythig to respond.

She needed him so much. He wanted her so bad.

Everything seemed to be going in slow motion as they slowly danced towards the bed arms intertwined, lips caressing, bodies combusting with need.

“Please give me permission to make love to you” he managed gently pulling away from her kiss and gazing into her eyes with a need she had never seen before.

“Yes…” she did not hesitate allowing him to slowly lay her on the soft beddings. She let go and let him kiss her some more…

“Another Valentines Day alone. He lied. Saying he’d be my Valentine. Waited for him on a cliff of my heart. He made me believe I’d be his Valentine yet he let me down going silent on me. I’m done with him, he’s no one to me” she thought bitterly

“I hate that I actually thought he’d be mine again. I shouldn’t have expected anything from him seeing that he never keeps his word at all. When will I get that person who will want me everyday of my life…” her heart cried

“His lies only Translated to my desparate loneliness” down to the floor of her bathroom she sank letting the tears flow

Fifty

Love is the feeling

Love is a beautiful song

Love is what I feel with you

It keeps me and you strong

Whenever you

Hold me in your embrace

Murmur

Those sweet silky words

Pouring into my soul

That needs your attention

Love is like

A Silhouette Nairobi sunset

It is drinking in

Your masculine scent

That throws away

My resolve to stay away

The tantalizing feel of your lips

Draws me into you

I will still love you at Fifty

Blues

I’m Singing the Blues in my mind

The boy broke my heart

He was fifteen

I was twelve

He saw her in a skater skirt

Left my hand hanging by my side

It was 13th February

I had a poem written for him

“Roses are adorable

Violets are cute

You and me forever”

Twenty  years gone

I am singing alone

Remembering

That boy who broke my heart

My twelve year old heart

My first crush

My first heartbreak

Now

Singing the blues

Before another lonely

Valentines Day
