Bonus Blog: Poetry Slam Part Uno And Half By Mr. Blair And Friends
Title: S/O By *Box
Shout out to a world illuminated
Girls so jaded
And the boys that they dated
Guys that out did them
Let’s hope they’re not related
Heads shaved on the sides
They all look alike
In the world illuminated
Tight jeans tight vest can see the nipples on ya chest.
In a light so bright
Only money difuses stress.
Stress me stress you stress ya mother stress ya brother on the corner sellin everything from a rock to a water.
But it all don’t matter cause of the diamonds that you bought em’
Hangin from their wrists
Glisten when they twitch
Enough gleam, shine to make a good girl switch
Doin all the things that she hated.
Now dogged by who she dated
Cause everyones jaded
Papi and ya mami wearing shotties to block the shame as her young ass shakin
They can’t take sight of another daughter degraded
But no one can hide in a world illuminated.
People By Mr. Blair Everyday I use to wonder…. How would it be to kiss you To hold you To tell you I love you To tell you I miss you To feel your soft skin against mines To taste your sweet nectar To be submerge by your walls To look into your eyes Gaze deeply Gaze deeper Gaze deep enough to hear the patters of your heart To be touched And to touch your emotions To sleep at your side To see you as first sight The morning shine blesses your beauty The silliness of your wit The beauty of your voice The sharing of two beautiful minds How I wonder what we use to be Because we’re just people n0w Inseparable By Nicole Phoenix I think about how we both started out;
So happy and sweet, naïve to what fate had in store for us
Beautiful brown girls pushed out into the world
We tried to hide our innocence but purity shrouded us in a blinding glow;
So bright we attracted the ills of this life like moths to a flame
Pretty round faces and big brown eyes widening with every flash of glitter
I wonder why no one ever told us, I wonder why no one ever protected us
We were left out in the cold with no one to fend for our honor As time went on our paths seemed to drift further and further apart
We went from arm-in-arm to worlds away
At what point, on what day did it happen?
Was it the night you said yes and I said no?
I look to my left and I can barely see
Through the clouds of smoke I can’t even make out your frame
There’s no way I can do this without you!
I scream into the darkness and there is no answer We are no longer one person sharing the same mind and I am alone
Fending off the ugliness of my days with no one by my side
I send up prayers and offerings to bless the one who left my life but never left my heart
There is never a day that I don’t wonder what ever happened to her
In passing I mention her name in dens of sin hoping that someone has seen her
Chasing shadows and inklings of her whereabouts
I spend my days following dark figures just beyond my reach One day as if my thoughts had willed you in front of me, our paths cross
It’s true that time has changed us, our glow somewhat diminished
Our smiles may not be as wide but our hips have picked up the slack
We are beautiful nonetheless
It is almost as if words could not make up for lost time Where do we begin, how do we explain everything that has happened
I look into her eyes and it is obvious
She doesn’t have to say a word, and I wouldn’t dare make her
All of her angst seems to come through every pore
Her face is stained with tears and marked with bruises
I am almost too ashamed to take in her whole frame;
Crumpled and tossed aside like a brown paper bag Before she can say a word I sweep her up in my arms;
Hoping that in my embrace she can feel all of my love and guilt An apology without words, “I am so sorry for leaving you behind”
I mutter inaudibly through sobs and uncontrollable tears
Just then a strange occurrence, smoke and booming thunder consumes us
The most incredible pain strikes me down, I can’t see and I can’t breathe
Opening my eyes I feel as if something otherworldly has just happened
Panicked and hysterical I push her far away from me
Did I just take on evil in the flesh?
She stumbled back and fell over; I could see the confusion and hurt on her face
I lend my hand to help her up and realize that her hand is my hand
I look in her face and her smile has somehow become my smile
A morbid grin steadily creeps across her face as she lets out a piercing cackle
Suddenly the truth of what has happened begins to sink in
The reality of what my life has been hits me all at once;
Unspeakable things that I have allowed to happen to her
My life plays in front of me like a cinema
Every wrong turn and every mistake is blaring in front of me in high definition
“You prayed for my safe return and here I am, in the flesh” All of my running to find her has lead me to this
Peering at her with unfettered concentration I can still see her beauty
I can still see all of her joy buried deep beneath a lifetime of pain
I see all of the things that made me love her from day one
An unstoppable and indestructible force she is still fragile and as precious as a newborn
Her knowledge is ever reaching and no matter how downtrodden still has love to offer
She is me, she is you, and she is mother, and sister, and daughter
She is so worthy of your devotion, to be cherished, loved, and most importantly never left
Food For Lust By Trevor Eames Bigglesworth
Well sweetheart This isn’t another man bragging How he’s gonna pretzel your legs apart Naw. This is I, leaving you airhead; jet lagging. From pressure I putting between your walls Body in awe From the way my penis, pause Yup! That’s spot right there, I saw The way your body trembles Use my tongue down your spine Hands doing gang symbols My lips on that can make you do another sign From the way my tongue flickers at your Clitoris I must be doing a good job; you’re pulling at your own hair Hit or miss It’s never a miss, dear. Tongue or that Got you running because I am a marathon Therefore, any tools and weapons you got, throw it back Ha! I welcome any jawn, lady, or dame; all will be spitting like a pond All beautiful women are welcome Passionate, rough, lick, suck, or eat The ending is always the same, never just a well cum Nope, all are weak, sleep, counting sheep. Ha! True story…
Misguided by Aquilla Phillips What is this self affliction that makes me want what doesn’t want me?
What is this yearning desire of affection from he, that doesn’t want to give it to me? Does my spirit feel what my eyes can’t see? Why does my flesh crave for what it’ll never receive?
But still, there he is. Dangled in front of me.
Taunting me, teasing me, all while my heart is misleading me.
My heart is such a liar.
Sitting there igniting a fire, making some poor uninterested soul the object of my desire.
Instigating feelings based on… air!
Got me working towards, reaching for a prize that’s not even there.
I trusted you.
I trusted you to guide me and keep yourself guarded against the pain of reality.
But there you sit inside of me, lying and careless misguiding me.
No matter how hard I fight you always overpower me.
I know my mind is telling me this dude ain’t really feeling me.
But my heart can’t seem to let it be.
Please! Release me from this agony.
Or maybe I’m just doomed to be in love with someone distantly.
Straight up punk to the third degree.
Cuz’ I could never tell him what he means to me.
No longer fighting my heart that continues to lead me
Further and further away from reality.
What is this self affliction that makes me want what doesn’t want me?
What is this yearning desire of affection from he, that doesn’t want to give it to me?
