Poem: Beautiful Flower

When love deceives; it’s like seeing a red juicy apple with no discolor

And at the first bite it tastes so sweet.

When love deceives; it’s like walking through a desert storm as you feel

Droplets of drizzle rain being kind to a once lost ground

When love deceive it’s like losing Joy, finding joy and then loosing joy

Over and over again

When love deceives; It makes you think how foolish, naive,

“You never ever want to be”

When love deceive, it wakes you up to reality—that the love you seek,

Is an illusion, a dream not yet come to life, its outside of yourself;

Its bury way beyond the eyes can see; deep inside, dwell in you and I.

When love deceive, prayers go up, prayers come down, tears flow heavily,

Because you think love lie, love die, love just don’t care; funny thing,

You found out later in life, love wanted you to cherish, the moments, the times,

You forgot the moments; you fail to spend with the, ‘Sacred’ I.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
