Absent, But Not Forgotten

It’s pretty bad when I recently realized that 2016 has come and gone, and I haven’t posted anything on here for the entire year. The last post was September 2015, ironically for a new writing project in which I haven’t posted anything on there either. That’s sad. And I say this because I love to write, and I was excited to really dive in to this project and just writing and posting on here in general. Evidentally, life and laziness and procrastination had other plans. I’m hoping to change this in 2017.

I’m not big into New Year’s resolutions but I do have two for this year: read more and write more. Last year, I had a reading goal of 30 books which is not a far reach. I started off strong but fell off by the summer and didn’t get back to it. I only managed about 18 books total, and 3 of those books were crammed in at the end of the year. And as I stated earlier, writing was pretty non-existent for last year. 

Well, I’m happy to say that I’m already working on these two resolutions and hopefully this will continue throughout the year. This post, for one, is a great start to my writing. I mean, it is the first post in about 16 months. I will certainly consider it a start. A huge start! And the reading side of things has gotten to a good start. I knocked out a Neil Gaiman book to start the year (a great way to begin the year in my opinion), and I am continuing the great Harry Potter series (book 5). 

All in all, I’m liking the way 2017 is starting off and using 2016 as a springboard to help propel me—and my writing!—to a better and consistent place. Here’s to more reading and more writing for 2017…. CHEERS!

My Special Dark Chocolate

The fact that she’s black takes me back,
Like I’m stuck in rewind.
Luscious lips, grippable hips,
Damn! I love that plump behind.

Skin so soft so smooth so sweet,
I’d kiss every inch of that dark-skinned goddess,
From her head right down to her feet.

Now don’t get me wrong,
Light is quite alright.
But there’s something about that
Deep dark complexion that gets me craving…
That chocolate appetite!

I always did say:
I like my women how I like my steak…
Dark on the outside
Pink on the inside
And dripping juices all on my plate.


lonely night

 

 

raindrops tapping on my window

lightning flashing in the night’s sky

thunder resonating in the distance

a bottle of wine chilling at my side

 

this night would be complete

if only she were here with me

 

who is she

where could she be


no strings attached

 

I’ll be your connecting flight,

            Your subway through the night.

 

I’ll be your train ride between stations,

            A taxi to another destination.

 

I’ll be your ship sailing you across the sea,

            The life raft when your drowning in break-up misery.

 

I’ll be your temporary fling,

            When you need a temporary thing.

 

I’ll be your late night sleeping pill,

   Or when you have time to kill,

      Or if you just need a thrill,

         …do with me what you will.

 

No pressure. No ties. No hidden lies.

And if you need me to,

I can slip out in the middle of the night.

 

Emotions detached?

Interests mismatched?

It’s affable. This can be casual.

 

No strings attached.


eyes for only you

 

eyes for only you

lovesome heart sent across time

ageless affection

past present future

time can not limit my thoughts

these words that i write

distinct from the world

 

distinct from the world

march to my very own beat

little drummer boy

my mind is swarming

 

my mind is swarming

buzzing with needless musings

stinging perception

weeks and months passed by

 

weeks and months passed by

never told you how i felt

wanting one more day
