A LOVE THAT NEVER GAVE






A LOVE THAT NEVER GAVE





"Credit he who loves you dearly. Cheers, you've avoided the worst of them"


Because of

A love that never gives
I always come to anger.

Greedy love

It never gives, it takes
There's nothing stranger.

TRENCH






TRENCH





"Remember, side with happiness for there is nothing greater"


My soul, a trench 
Between life and death.

Good and bad
I island both with one breath.

Between each side
Enemies & friends side my trench.

In Slave graves they lay

COURAGE






COURAGE





"Courage is the key to love, for you risk it all for someone else"


Love stains what's deep within my ribs red
Bringing my soul to life from silent & dead.

- Love plays a better role with the heart -

Love over rides my wants with my needs
Placing my heart first, ahead of my head.

Emotionally hitting a firm wall.

MY HEART & HER






MY HEART & HER




"My heart alone, It belongs to me alone"


My heart bleeds
It aches and needs.

It gives and takes
When its used it breaks.

- My dear heart -

My heart alone
Mime from the start.

Divided into two
She took the other part.

SILENCE







SILENCE





"Less is more when a lot means nothing"


Speak to me with a quiet voice
Spend time with me, silent.

I've heard you loud enough 
Blunt vulgar times we've spent.

Now lets sit without voice
Giving our thoughts time to vent.

CHANGING TIMES







CHANGING TIMES






"Age is more then just numbers, its the difference between the old and new"


Time pushes me old
Old age chases me slow.

Nothing remains put
It all seems to be changing.

Slowly I'm fading
With time I'm aging.

Not new resembles the old
Like the stories being told.

Perhaps its time to part
Leave the old me for a new start.

In loving memory of my Goddaughter Nehmoi Martina Ivey Crichlow





         "I lost my GodDaughter, I wish God could 
                                 bring her back. Cut my life in half if he must"


If I could, I would
Have you here. 

Watch you smile 
Just like I should.

I do cry mainly.

 And

No, don't you cry. 
I miss you so much.

I dedicate this post to my Goddaughter Nehmoi. Never Did I get the chance to hold you in my arms, share with you a smile. Please forgive me for covering you up, I was just trying to secure your safety in God's hand. I miss you more with time, I imagine how big you would be right now. I'm crying as I speak, please, don't you cry along with me. I have made my peace with God. In my heart is where I hold you mine and I look forward in meeting you someday in time.

Away from real and it's fragment of time.

REEL TIME







REEL TIME





"F&ck it, I'm directing my life from now on a frame at a time"


I look to create my own moving picture
Make believe out of dreams in real time.

Call my very own shots, direct my life
Tittle episodes in this vivid life of mine.

- Director's cut -

I wish to cut, paste and edit my mistakes
Learn from all of them till my habit breaks.

- I hope to have enough film to -

"Shoot over & over for the stars with multiple takes"
