Poem: BeloVed One

My Beloved—take me, take me in your arms

where shield and armor guard, secret treasures—to our soul

and let me smell, let me smell, the freshness of love, each day

keeping our temple sacred, where paradise unfolds;

Rare gifts the eyes never seen, as you place, sweet scented oil,

upon my thighs, feet—love blooms, while we sail on oceans;

Where wave speak romance in their tongue:

Our eyes behold beauty, our eyes behold the sun;

Let me be the first, the first to view wisdom,

your heart—your strength

As oneness becomes our resting place:

“Beloved—do not deceive me!”

Take me, take me in your arms and hold me close,

Hold me firm yet gently, dear, yet respectfully,

Let us age, let us kiss, let us dance—gracefully.

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
