Protect my heart…

She wanted to protect my heart from the world
Saying no one deserved it
Selfish
And maybe I liked it
It felt weird being guarded.
Protect my heart from the reality
The savagery
Because I was never that type
But I shattered my heart before a
Falling for the wrong side
So to protect it
She said ‘with my life’.
I
Might
Try..
I never want to be afraid to love
Ever again
So protect my heart from the universe
Safe with the stars
She healed the scars
She held on
Wherever my heart went, she wasn’t too far.

Purple Skies….

I told him the sky was purple

He knew it was blue

But he knew that believing the sky was purple was a way inside my thoughts

Clearly seeing the sky for its TRUE colors he only wanted to see what I saw

Broken pieces scattered

I just wanted him to help me solve my puzzle

So I told him the sky was purple

As we laid under the brown tree

If only he could understand that I saw blue and a burning red

And what was really in my head

Is that I was torn in between the two

Most of my pieces were hidden in places I was afraid to return.

So next time I say the sky is purple I want you to know that’s what I see when I’m with you….

Photo Speaks Photography started in early 2014. Now I have a wonderful team of artist. Photo Speaks handles all your photography needs and Speaks Visuals Production will create the visual you need.

This is what happens when a poet meets a photographer and they connect on every level you can think of. This short film is a prequel to a mini series we will be airing January of 2018.

Each month until January, we will post a new short film. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to view more videos from various artist.

We appreciate all the love and support.

Tell me please

What corroded your mind and made you stop thinking about me?
What consumed your heart and took away your reasoning that made you forget to reach out for help when you needed it?
You’re not without hope,
but your bones will rot inside-out with discontent.
Come.
Fix your gaze on my love for you,
let me be the meditation of your heart.
I know where you need to be and I will take you there.

Real men face the blade

Did you know beard gangs don’t use guns!? I mean, their greatest weapon is a bottle of coconut oil, the content not the container, God forbid the bottle breaks or they break it in an argument over texture, tears will flow and mucous even more –
little wonder this spineless generation wants in on all the inactions.
Real men shave, real men face the blade and conquer.
Have you ever had a hot towel shave?, bearing your future in the hands of a conflicted soul, knowing that a moment of insanity could be your last.
So what if he had crack for lunch, real men surrender their lives to the blade and the wielder alike.
These days we no longer subscribe to dick measuring contests, show me your beard and I’ll tell you who you are- a bitch. A privileged bitch with the genetic make up of a beast.
Call it bitterness, call it rage;
call it jealousy if you will-
because you can grow a fuller beard than I can doesn’t make you superior or more of a ‘man’.
Truth is I no longer know what makes a man and I don’t think I ever did.
When will I ever be enough to be called a man?,
Apparently age doesn’t count, teenagers are ‘manning’ up these days. Again I don’t know what makes a man, penis enlargement perhaps or those who the heavens smiled on like me, I simply need to use it more; to remind myself what it feels like to be a man. Maybe I was born as one. We all know a man, why not tell me, what makes them so.

Screw your Snapchat filters 

It will never matter,
The things you say to me.
About my blood shot eyes
and how I turned my back on you.
about my nappy hair
and how your religion
doesn’t support it
You’re not the least of my worries
you’re not a worry at all.
Just yesterday Nina said I came to quick,
I couldn’t tell her it’s because I haven’t cheated in awhile, so I simply apologised.
can you see now that I have real things to worry about.
Like two weeks ago when I was worried my writing wasn’t getting better and I asked Katrina for her opinion, I obvisouly was only fucking to be validated,
so she told me I was Shake Spear and that my 1/2 hour was almost up.
Opinions these days are a dime a dozen you don’t really need a mind a hash tag will do #deep #preach #truth, watch my comment section- follow for follow.
Can you really blame me though ? I need the likes to prove I’m progressing.
What do you think your compliments do to me, the last time I gave a fuck I gave my mind with now I have to live with no fuck and an empty soul case.
It will never matter the things you say to me you’re a vulture and I’m dead inside, eat all you can I feel nothing.
I’ve thought about it and I know what I need, nudes, from melanin queens and slay mamas, I’m a sucker for the breast
-the bigger the better-
Its all just a lie
and Nina knows.
Nina knows I have a thousand personalities and it’s the insecure one that fucked her best friend on her birthday. Don’t be sorry for me;  it was either that or I had to pay for our meal.
Look, none of us was meant to live this long, soon I’ll be 25 isn’t that old enough ?
It can’t matter the curses you rain on me, I’ve been caught lying to people I claim to love so what is a mirror when there’s Snapchat filters to hide my flaws.

Castles….

Castles     

Who gave you the right to put this danger in my chest?
Who gave you the right to lay my hopes and dreams to rest?
Who gave you the right to turn my trust into ash and dust?
Who gave you the right to turn my heart of Gold to stone and smash it?
Who gave you the right to put my love in a casket?
Who gave you the right of passage beyond my walls?
Now this castle I was building for us
Is now built to keep you out
Walls more feet tall then you can count
You and love can stay out
I’ll never let you in , I’ll never let you in
Never, Never,never again
You’ll never make it pass my moat
Don’t care how well you swim or if bullshit flouts ~Icarus
