Memories

Memory of my playmates
teasing, running chasing me
and there was one
stand out whom I found
beautiful
so i loved to wait at
the window for his presence
his smile, his eyes, capture me
so i love to wait
outside by the bushes to see him
and we chase each other
playing fun games
until my heart say, he is the one
for me, so i told him
and that day, he kissed me
where the air was fresh
and for the sun to see
and I got happy forgetting
my playmates, my best friend,
forgotten me,
then he did a 360 degree
on me when I told him
my womb carries his image
he disappear, he left me
and the pain of his absence
made me, not be me===I was abandon
from his presence, left with out
hope, left alone to mourn, as I weep
asking the Universe to bring him
home to me, there I began to feel
death within me, memory of my playmates
in Queens.

About the author

empressjournee

I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for several great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme God, he is using giants and various people to help develop the divinity within and allowed me to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
