Poem 48: Like J Cole

Can we talk about Isis and Osiris
Capitalism? What life is
Love philosophically
How it’s the cure for everything

Or we can talk about Yeshua
You’re a
Beautiful soul like J Cole
Yes you are

Let the truth be told of old pharaohs
Do you believe life after death?
Or the energy dissolves
Til there’s nothing left

I’ll push your hips when it’s too deep

So you can see me
Feel what you’re saying
Taste the meaning
Traced lips while your speaking

About being hated
For being the one who made it
Why the federal reserve is outdated
Why it’s illegal to get faded

How we made it- thank Yeshua
For a
Beautiful soul like J Cole
Yes you are

Poem 44: Why I Will Fall in Love

Unpublished from Jan 2014

I’m going to dive head first
Into water or concrete
Thinking of only
The cool dip of my fingertips
Can’t imagine anything
But swimming
Forever on one breath of him- even

Wear white again
If it meant I could spend
My life with him

Poem 41: I Am Not Afraid

From the series “What would I say…”

Warm skin grasped

Quiet laughs

We may never comprehend

Sacred ground shared in our laps

A temple of prayers and tears

Life and love over their years

Dark places in all states

The pleasure, joy, and the pain

Decades among two tiny frames

Yet a moment is all that remains

Clasped in these hands of ours

Enshrined by life’s marks and scars

Poem 40: At the End of a Heartbeat

A Freestyle Poem By Meka

I learned that one could die
If the beat’s broken inside
Unless there’s enough love
Left to keep her alive

The heart’s rhythm of life seems
Chosen but random and
It’s beat is a juke token
For keeping her eyes open Continue reading

Poem 38: The Perfect Woman

By Meka Love
“Excuse me,” he said
Breezing past the perfect woman
Her attentive smile upon him
He’d only see if…
Eyes weren’t fixed on a vixen
Smacking her lips
At a text message
Before she ignored him
Called him boring and
Friends forewarned of her
Mileage
Calling them childish
He accepted the challenge

Poem 37 – Do I Make You Nervous?

Do I make you nervous?

Don’t be
I’m just a person

Do I make you mad?
Relax
I’ll need my oxygen back
I don’t feel safe
In suffocation

You don’t look well
Like you’d love me death
And then love me to hell

Do I make you nervous?

Not on purpose
Take a deep breath
Dive below the surface

Poem 36: Semi-Love Story

By Meka

Spent my whole life
Waiting for one like you
And the rest to forget
How we are almost perfect

How everything I’ve ever wanted
Came packaged in the one gift
Too expensive to open
I couldn’t accept it

But it owns me
And it holds me like
I should see in his eyes
How much he adores mine
And he can’t surmise why I
Let him when it’s all I desire

Broken, but God only knows
Maybe I’m taking for granted
Nothing can take what’s meant
Given precedent, I’m unconvinced

And too old to be selfish
But I’m working on it

Enjoy! Like, share, and don’t forget to follow.

Love,
Meka Love
