Untitled Ninety-three

Do you love me?

There was a plea in your eyes

a choking sob

you caught in your throat.

I always thought I would be the one

to ask you those frightening questions

of doubt

insecurity.

The plan was never for anyone to get hurt

I’m sorry

for the pain I will cause your heart.

How cruel of me

to ruin a beautiful day

under the sun.

 

 

A Woman’s Worth

The greatest sin the world forbids a woman to do, is love herself.

See, she is the wife before she is an  individual. The mother  who

cares for herself last. Someone’s sister or aunt. She never belongs

to herself. God forbid she does.

— Day Sibley, A Woman’s Worth

Haiku’s I Wrote While Having a Good Day At Work

She’s not interested
in saving you
because she
can’t save herself.



R.I.P. Robert Godwin 4/2017

My problem was
never with dying
more so with how
I’m going to.


break me down again
lie and tell me you love me
I wanna be loved.
