joshuabrandonbennett: The nurse turned to me and asked, “Are you depressed?” The sheer size of the laugh I offered her as response shocked the both of us. I apologized immediately. Said, yeah.

2 AM MENTAL BANTER
To black love poems….to swing me bys at two am. To words unspoken,wet cement on your tongue. To women being paintings and poems, to self emulation under the rising morning sun. To 12 hour life span kisses, to the hangover and a dinner table with your demons. Salut! Salut,to the rhythm of your own breathe in the dead of night. Self control Traces of over thought thoughts. To orange...

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house…

I would like to imagine God is like water. Surrounding us in whole. Taste, unique to every tongue. PURIFIED. We only have to hold our breathe. Immerse ourselves deep in it. Let the water seep into our lungs, and accept the drowning.

god sinned against us
The day my grandmother died, I came home to an empty house. The floors lay naked, curtains drawn. God became a sinner. He sinned against us for ten days. Day one. When realisation burst into our doors, she was gone. hope still comforted us to sleep. Day two, I could see her in my dreams,roaming the streets of Dar- es -salaam. I pleaded that those streets would harbour peace for her. ...

The secret admirer
My greatest fear is to be forgotten. To be lost amid the billions electrons of buzzing inside your memory, barely causing a flicker of emotion . To be but a trinkent in the souvenir shop of your life. But worse still, my greatest fear is not being able to forget you.
