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 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 various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the higher God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness and love in me. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Peace and Blessings!
