Sweet Venus

My Aphrodite, ever patient and kind
Come closer and witness
my pitiful heart unwind

These thorns at last
are relinquishing their hold
Come wait and watch
as my frail veils unfold

I'm ensnared by the elusive scent
of your lonely viola
as it dares to bloom
where the prettiest red roses have met with
their petal-plucked doom


You're the Sappho of my dreams
Reciting Cupid's resurrection to me
To this skeletal heart hope nurtures in vain
In my unworthy flesh I'll engrave your sweet name
In these putrid streams your existence might always
Hold the greatest sway


Nymphet, dance towards me now
My godsent impaired angel
Be my fair Leda
and I'll be your psychotic, lustful swan

Crown me the emperor of your heart, my sweet
You came, you saw,
and you conquered me

I'll be your effeminate Ares,
your nighttime Apollo
When your dove falls prey to my raven's talons
There's no telling what mischief will follow


You're my goddess in chains
The quivering beauty I am reborn to obey
No monsters will have you, save for me
So name a constellation depicting my lips at your feet
Finger paint our tale into the stars for eternity
And they'll sing, pretty thing:
"Sweet Venus and her Adonis are watching"

Queens Donít Swing

Gotta say, it saddens me,
How we walk by one another,
But wonít speak,
Will give a body scan though,
Pause & look each other from head to toe,
Assuming the position of some kind of enemy,
Treating each other like a foe.  
All of that, I try not to feed,
Because honestly, thereís really no need,
Iím never here to compete...
Thatís not possible because weíre all unique:
Ainít no one like you...
& ainít no one like me.  
Like Ms. Scott tried to tell us,
Queens Donít Swing,
So you can fix your face,
Ainít no need to frown at me.  
Ainít no need to try and be big,
Knowing damn well we all going through our own shit...
Knowing how hard it already is?
And weíre giving each other our asses to kiss.
Why donít we share this energy with these men?
Why they always get a pass?
Why we always so quick to dismiss each other?
But will fight for a toxic relationship to last?
Why canít we give each other a compliment?
Be sincere ...
Really mean it
Tell me,
Why does there always have to be shade hiding somewhere underneath it?
Knowing all the shit we face,
Honestly,
Iíd rather not make everything a race,
Iíd rather be at my own steady pace,
And watch you make it too, at the very end of the day.  
Queens Donít Swing...
We need to shelve all the hostility,
All the jealously...
None of us really need.  
Ainít it just tiring?
Ainít it easier to do your own thing?
Rather than watching another woman,
With a heart full of hate?
Rather than step on each otherís toes,
And fuck each other over,
Rather than pass by one another,
Giving off the cold shoulder.
Iím here to say... I wanna see you win,
Not here to shit in your parade,
Woman to woman,
Iím rooting for you & pray you keep finding your way.
