"the overwhelming crisis in my heart simmers down when I feel you breathe, the only thing keeping me sane.
the fallen twigs vanish, skies of the mind clear and finally, spring returns in my heart.
away from the land of corpses of dead lovers, where we traded memories in the name of love, we are now here, nestling in one true form.
my eyes marry yours while our lips engage and recognize homecoming. our tongues savour whatever's left in us and fingers write epics on our skins. two bodies crash into one another, making us wonder why we looked at dark skies for cosmic breakdowns while we always did that in each other's arms.
we pick up torn pieces of FOREVER, place it in our dictionaries and feel complete. past wreckage quit our bones and we return as the same old kids in love.
then we hold onto this moment, and I hold onto you, my forever in a moment."

A poem for my beautiful black babes who grew up in white spaces. Black is black | ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
“I wish I could speak like Angela Davis,
write like Nayyirah Waheed.
I wish I knew my roots like Ijemoa in ‘Questions for Ada.’
I wish my heart strings were as strong as Maya Angelous, I wish being a phenomenal BLACK woman was in the curriculum.
I wish I was raised in black girl magic on African dirt so I didn’t grow up so afraid my dark nipples would scare the white boy who took off my shirt.” 📸 : viadarlene

Poem by @hannahgorlick for #HealLoudly | A reminder of all the glorious and dynamic magic a woman’s body holds 💫 | Oh my lord, we are a force 💥 •
Beautiful Things A Woman's Body Can Do:
I found beauty in distance between us
Although we stood so close together
I heard poetry in the way your eyes looked at me with so much emotion
Yet you never spoke in the same language you stared in
There is nothing left to glorify
Nothing left to find beautifully tragic
And there’s me
But nothing ties those two together
So I’ll turn off the music
We once danced to
That always plays in my mind
I’ll turn off the memories
I’ll look the other way
And accept that there are no more ways to find light in our darkness
There are no more excuses that can be made
And no more fights to be fought
But I hope you know I would’ve kept fighting
For you, I would have
For you, I would have
But for me
I am deciding that my fragile heart will not be broken one more time over the same old person
My fragile heart doesn’t get to spend every last bit of itself
On someone who doesn’t understand
How deeply I felt for them
And that the way I felt
No one’s feelings will amount
And maybe someday he will understand
When he misses the way he could’ve been loved.
