Scent of a man

Rain kissed Chihuahuan desert 
Magnolias lingering 
In the night's summer breeze 
Intoxicating, addicting like 
Honeysuckle to a bee

Relaxing Lavender
Exotic jasmine infused oil,
Luxurious roses, hyacinths
Welcoming spring

Frankincense, myrrh
Venerable, heavenly blessing
Purifying burning sage
None compare to his

Exiting, enticing to me
Stimulate ol factory
Elicit ancient memories of my
Nubian King

My Child, My Sweet

My child, my sweet
How I've waited so,
Impatiently to see you,
To hold you, to meet you

Carried you in my womb 
Kept you safe and warm
Fed you, read to you
'Til you were ready, full term

Yet on that day, of your birth
The same person I was no more
With your first breath, with your first cry
It was you who gave me life.

I thrive

Photo by: @rebelesoteric 

I will thrive
For every stick and stone
For every evil word
Burns my desire 

For every lie and indiscretion
For every callous
Back hand 
I will thrive 

For the power 
Of my silence 
Is no longer
Yours to keep

For only weak
Resort to violence 
Powerless over me
I thrive
