I’m on the EDGE
& I’m FALLING for you
I’m on the edge
As I pledge
My Immortal love
Endless stars fill the night sky,
Dazzling– bewitching– stars.
Stars that could stun
With a simple twinkle.
Many nights spent stargazing.
You want to be great?
Don’t try to IMPRESS the rest
Just EXPRESS yourself.
A girl told me once
Not to call her “sexy”.
She said its kind of insulting in
But after she broke it down for me
—kicking her knowledge—
I gotta make it...
Kept the world waiting
With my procrastination
But tell the Nation I’m on my way
My clothes are still in the dryer
At the end of the
day, what’s an “United States”
You call me your
Knight in shining armor
Because after your DARKEST day
I manage to BRIGHTEN your nigh

My words are my Eyes...
As you read along you’ll
SEE what I’m saying.
I miss you like crazy!
I miss the laughs! I miss your la
You touched and warmed so many in

So kick your feet up Rambo, you’v
Separated myself from
An uncivilized civilization
And traveled into the wild
Where I can hug trees and see pea

Truth is, I can’t even button dow
The guy in the mirror.
Your eyes are paralyzing
Your smile is contagious
And your lips are addictive
Your body is an island
I bath in your fountain of youth
You make me feel like dreams do co
I really want you..
So, I really want you to want me.
I want you to really want me.
I’ve given 1,000 speeches
Yet, in your presence I’m speechl

Faces are starting to look familia
This is where I pull
My vanishing act–
Entering the darkness

Doesn’t It feel glorious?

Stop judging and critizing so much
I’m filled with tourist.
If I hit the ground
Would I make a sound?
I’m feeling like a
Reporter with breaking news
But no camera crew
What is “black privilege”?
My “brutha”, you have no privilege
You have but Right.
Yes, you heard me right
You have but one.
What a night.
I did this and tried that
I’m everything tonight.
I’ve set sail into the
Deep dark blue.
I’m a Navy seal
With no crew.
I just want to hold you–
...the whole you...
If you ever need someone
to console you or to control you,
Let me be the one you go to.
Let your pen be your
Knife, and paper be your wrist
Bleed onto the page
I want a bird so
I can set that bird free and
See if she comes back.
I’ve been moving through this pool
Dragging these cinderblocks—you’d
I’m tired, tired of everything;
Tired of the same ol’ thing, tired
Animals, and tired of human beings
The angst of life
Keeps me up at night
Thus I write letters
To or For
The love I fight for–
Forever it shall last
Never straying away from its task;
Whatever that may be.
No one really knows

My urges are
Hidden and forbidden
Minds, brighter than the sun
Reading poetry for fun
We’re the poets
I’m trying to stay
Optimistic about this
“happy ending” thing
