My Blog Lyric Fire: National Poetry Month-NaPoWriMo #11-Silent Cry

NaPoWriMo #11 РNational Poetry Writing Month


Silent Cry

pretty girls like bad boys

a lethal combination

sparks fly and the heart pounds

this is the man for me

one by one friends dissipate

our love sustains

i’m wanted



that’s why he gets so mad

it’s LOVE

passion wears an ugly face

twisted and screwed up

smiles are for suckers

we hard

we gangsta

we real

even though i long for lovely flowers

and envy lovers who take walks holding hands

it’s a temporary yearning

brought on by watching too many love stories

who really lives like that?

loving and respecting each other





what we have is real

i fight to get home on time

his dinner needs to be on the table at 6:00

not 6:01

but it’s thrilling

my heart beats so fast

when he holds me

i feel alive

even though it’s a death grip

my tears are dry

they no longer fall

i can’t live like this anymore

i want out

i told him in my sweetest voice

i even kissed him

hugged him

held him

let him know i still loved him

i would always be there

but i needed some time for me

to be free

he said he understood

he smiled even

he was so fine in that moment

i almost changed my mind

but no

i had to do this

he was gonna be okay

i was turning to walk out

my smile was super wide

i was breathing!

it felt so good

i needed to call kesha


guess what

we can go out again now




oh my God

i’m fighting for my life

in a matter of moments


for eternity

i should have known better

i guess i lost my head

yes i truly

lost my head

it’s in his hands

i’ve lost me

for eternity

    Damn you are so good… this is so real so visceral .. you continue to impress me every single DAY. You should get an award:)

  2. Jim, thanks so much for being a loyal reader. I truly appreciate it. I was really affected by a story of domestic abuse over the weekend. A young woman is now gone and all we have left is the poetry. I pray for her family and that she rests in peace.

    Oh my WOW. I just had a tingle of deja-vu. You worded this in such a real “this is my life” way. I loved it, absolutely LOVED it.

  4. Jenni, thanks girl! It is real for some women. So very real.
