I can't write a poem
Forget it
You must be kidding
My hand hurts
I can't move it
It's num
My head hurts
I need to go to sleep
My pen stop working
I don't know anything about poems
Time's up? uh oh!
All I have is a dumb list of excuses
You like? Really? No kidding.
Thanks alot. Would you like to see another one?

WHO AM I
My real is Arnetia Taylor
Yesterday my name was Neisha
Today my name is Precious
Tomorrow my name will be Nene
In my dreams my name is Arnetia Robertson

I AM
I am smart and talented
I wonder if things can talk but we can hear it
I hear someone talkin in my ear
I see flowers in early morning light
I want to go back in time and see my ancestors
I am smart and talented

I pretend to be a model
I feel vibrations in my body(weird)
I touch a puppy
I worry about this boy
I cry when I'm hurt
I am smart and talented

I understand love
I say god/ jesus/ the lord
I dream about my future
I try to focus on my school work
I hope i get married to him
I am smart and talented

LOVE IS NOVEL

We too, are literate,
We pose our-self by candlelight,
Filtered flickers of character read out of context.

Placed on the shelf of Amnesty,
Poised prone to those who may read us.
Our stories tainted by the hands of another.

Collectively we forge some epic novel,
Your manuscript brings a quaint friendship.
The oil from your skin marks the page of comprehension.
You read me as if to write the next chapter.

And you, bound in irresistible Silhouette.
I cannot put you down,
Your text is addictive.

I subscribe to this foreign emotion,
As I turn down this wrinkled parchment,
The place I find while inside of you,
My favorite page of life.

Tangled in your lies

Drink your medicine, thickly sweet
Gulp it greedily from mother's teat.
Liquid essence devours the feast,
Weaving waves of cerebral heat

I savoured the sermons that you told,
Such brackish nectar cloaked in gold.

Your wispy mist devoured reason,
Controlled my core, burned my freedom

Save me from reproachful power
Cyanide sprayed from your tower
Sickly sour your saccharine shower
Revealing you..
...the darkest flower.

A Best Friend

A best friend
Is always there to defend
Your secrets they keep
No matter how deep
They really truly care
In any hour of despair
In good times and bad
Whether you're happy or sad
Never will they hurt you
No matter what you may do

Night's Silent Tunes

The velvet night sky my perpetual partner
cradles lively eyes in its vast tender hands
millions of stars prance across and scatter
making this ebony beauty look so grand

Waves of dreams flock into a weary mind
slumber's voice lures me to its realm slowly
I break away from reality's grip and unwind
a soft mist whirls and consumes me gently

Wordless hymn sings, a promise of joy fills
senses lie naked as peace smilingly caresses
no threat in sight or lurking to make its kill
not even thunder can scare or cause distress

Conflict or gloom cannot swallow this moment
for everything is charmed by night's silent tune
from all worldly knowledge total abandonment
as I snuggle to bed on the beaming crescent moon

Friends Forever

Perfect, just the way I want it.
Perfect, but well, maybe for you.
I used to say and think and believe,
Your happiness I will never deceive,
But I couldn't stay like this forever.
Now I don't think I could ever go back.
You can see it in my stare.
One glance and it all changes.

Let's go back.
I want to return
To the laughs and the joy
Because after all he's just a boy to me.
I think...

Friends forever, you say.
So friends forever, we stay.
