Poem: Broken Love Speak

Our eyes meet and it was instant magic

Our love felt gentle, sharp, strong, taste like guinep,

Sweet, hard at times, until our heart feels

As if it has been broken to pieces

That I cannot count how many broken particles

Of heartbeat scatter through the distant of the cosmos

I won’t tell you; I won’t tell you to stay

Your happiness gives the planet more possibilities

That one day our creation will wear colors

That are rich and alive yet I will tell you, thank you

For the dance, your devoted heart, the birth of hope

And the breakable promises that you say you would

Never do. Remember, still my beloved I find you,

Mysterious, at the same time my heart misses

The fruit of your loving spirit; this is broken love speaking

Because you have taken me from a momento joyful ride

To an unknown space of blues where I found

The victorious inner strength to rise!

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.
