Dear Future Love,
I’m so glad that it took all this time to meet. People would say that our joining was unnecessarily prolonged; I however would disagree. This time a part grew me into the woman I am today. My love for you transcends time and space because I was given the time and space to reflect on the importance of self. I’ve grown in more ways that one, and I know you have as well. My heart is unequivocally yours for the taking. But, I’ve learned that should you squander this gift, I would soldier on. Simply because it is life.
I will keep your heart safe. I will love you unconditionally, and I pray you do the same. We will travel, talk about family, start on our own. We will ignore the naysayers, and revel in the fact that we trusted each other from the beginning. I write this with a smile knowing that I am close to you, and you are close to me. I wonder how the universe is constructing our first meeting, and whether or not we will have a stereotypical romantic scene straight from a movie, or I’ll hate your guts.
It will be glorious.
Faults, flaws and all I like the evolution I’ve been through.
No longer processing,
Fully in my convalescence.
I will march no more.
My people have suffered since this country’s inception…
The ancestors being dragged onto this wretched shore.
I welcome violence,
luxuriate in the bloodshed,
Hope my oppressors are filled with dread.
It was freeing, really.
Taking away what once controlled me.
It was hard to fathom previously,
Now, I feel the stares and revel in it deviously.
The way the music pounds,
Vibrates within my body,
Caresses me as a lover would.
…I feel the rain coming.
…Came to collect.
Time was given.
Money was allotted.
Frivolity was limitless.
The moon was covered by the clouds.
The winds picked up from the east.
And rising from the ground, Death, suddenly appeared.
You were fascinated and terrified in equal measure.
But what more could you do?
This day had already been predicted to you.
I made my novella, “Undeniably Yours,” available on Amazon for free this week only. I wrote it a while back. It’s only if you have Kindle Unlimited. I read so much, and I just adore Kindle Unlimited because I get to read whatever for only ten bucks a month. For readers it’s like a dream LOL. It’s also why I made mine available for it, because if I saw it was featured on KU I’d be thrilled.
Side note: KU said that I read a total of forty books in 2022. YAY! I’m going to shoot for one-hundred books read in 2023. What are your goals? Other than dropping like fifty pounds, reading, and traveling, I don’t have anything extravagant. (Or do I?)
That just took a turn.
Anyway, if you want to read it, please click here.
P.S. Poems will be back this week.
I’ve had some ups and downs,
and I was afraid to fall.
But you answered the call.
So consumed with my innermost thoughts,
Struggling to connect the dots…
But thank you.
Because there’s a lot I’d be facing if you didn’t come through.
I’ve been so busy! But never fear I am still here. I pleased to announce that I will be putting out two books in the month of January. (God willing) If it has to go to February I’ll be okay with it, but for now I’m trying to be positive about everything. LOL. This will make seven books total. In three years I would have published three poetry books and four fiction books! I never thought I would be able to put out my own stuff but I’m so grateful that I can, and be self-published too through Amazon! I hope that I can entice you all to read my fiction book.
*I’ll post it here when it’s released.
My goal for 2023 is to continue writing. To continue expressing myself in the wonderful way of prose. My goal is to lose a little more weight, but not stress about it. My goal is to finally allow myself the chance to open up when it comes to love. I can admit that I’ve been a bit standoffish when even the idea is mentioned in my presence, but since I’m being honest I thought it best to start here. I love you all, and if I don’t post anymore this weekend, then I want to say Happy New Year!
Stay safe, and I love you all.
Rich and sweet,
That’s what eludes me.
Darkness and bitterness are what consumes me.
It shouldn’t be this way.
I should have a say in the divine.
Desire and duty always war within me.
