ass beating. aka shading (in cuts).

February 4, 2011 Posted by the writer

I’m getting my ass beat at the moment blog family. Today was the first day in about three years that I actually felt alright about enduring it.

Because I know better now.

I love you all and how you hold me down. Unfortunately, this is something I’m stuck going through alone. Although rest assured, the puppies are in my lap at the moment – that helps immensely.

So does ink…

… ink is always helpful.

Once I bleed all this poetry, books shall bloom. I’ve been writing bits and pieces of them every day.

In other news, or the same news, actually…

shading (in cuts)

if i was.
who you thought… what you dream of…
maybe i could have been.
enough. quality.
do me a favor. when i say
stop, try. being honest
i sigh at pathetic
excuses for how
i never made
your grade. fail me
again. i learn
how to stand, long leg strut.
distribution. while you left me
alone i became. taller.
when real arrives
i will not remember
your name. used to
devour what i understand
to be a woman. i am so much
higher than what you dissemble.
difference. now.
you cannot dress down
who i am
searching for your
self.
solo. figure it out.
once was. our world.
a distant memory.
purple
scar.
