Missing You

Missing you,

Doesn’t come any where near.

The feelings I feel,

The deep seated fear.

Viruses and violence,

Conspire to keep us apart.

Illness and unrest,

Slowly breaking our hearts.

Missing you,

Will never ever convey.

The pain that the world inflicts,

As it keeps us at bay.

One Race, One World, One Humankind.

I’ve cried tears for a man that I never knew,

For people who are enraged by what they do.

For the humanity that seems to have left some of humankind.

For those that claim to protect our times.

I’ve cried tears that so many have been fooled.

For they truly do not know what they do.

Following a president and governors that’ll leave democracy in tatters.

The men and women that don’t believe that black life matters.

I’ll cry tears until one day justice is truly done.

Until freedom of opportunity is there for all bar none.

Until racists have had their power removed.

Until the freedoms in constitution are  not cynically abused.

I’ll cry tears for a man that I never met.

For his unrealised right to get all that I can get.

For the failed justice that he didn’t have to find.

I’ll cry until all acknowledge, we are one race, one world, one humankind.



Whispering, Licking, And Loving

My hands form a wall
But I can see through
Reality divine and bete noire
The tail of my two kitties

You are like the Eiffel Tower
I can’t look away
Hard from base to tip
Monumental beauty

When desire meets reality
Am I but a jewel without its setting?
A figment time has preserved
My heart, internally bursting

As desire wettens us like a shower
Every day becomes Valentine’s Day
Your mouth and heart shaped lip
Whispering, licking, and loving
