Black Like Love

Black girl standing there looking so down and blue Red with anticipation Sick with grief Every other word a broken melody of some fool’s promises Frozen with remnants of a faded smile Those stricken glistening eyes hiding the depth of your cries The lies you’ve convinced yourself I know You’re not ok You’re not fine Too afraid to say love is what you’re seeking because it’s always been so far away Snatched by perfect pitch lines and lullabies Every time that would be the last that never was So now you rock cold Suited up and ready for war cause only fools fall in love And every other word professing the many nobody’s you don’t need Settling to feed your flesh because the soul requires too much trust Comforting yourself with the superficial attention of those you know mean you no well I see you Nervous but so ready “A rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys” “Arise, my love and come away with me” Let me show you slow and steady’ I’ll kiss away the venom others left Bathe your insecurities in my love and I’ll paint you in golden hues of my nectar Baby, let me hold you Return your stolen tears Whisper blissful truths that make you grin again Blissful moments you’ve never known Break those ill erected walls you’ve fenced yourself in You can finally let go Black girl Breathe a sigh of relief Black girl I’ve been sent to restore what’s left But you must take the first step
