Follow My Shadow

Take my hand as you blindly see

Take my heart and bring it upon yours

I know you see me hiding in the sunshine

Even when darkness falls

Looking down on me when I’m desiring the love that I deserve

To sketch me out and match the pieces to yours

You dream about me every night and while I sleep

You watch over me and protect my heart from danger

Telling me within your spirit that you aren’t a stranger

Follow my shadow that leads to the everlasting 

A bond of love that is sewn together


I await for you in the present and in the future 

I hope to meet you at a very special place 

To extend your hand as an invitation to invite me into your life

No matter what, you continue to follow me and to stay close

Behind my every footstep

As I pray that I will find you at the right place soon

To reunite in reality

So that you can win  my heart and to see the brightest 

There could ever be

Hearts entwined eternally

I’m here




Waiting on that special day

The day you will take my breath away

follow my shadow

Let My Fame Shine!

I stand before you

Microphone propped up

Words that will surely roll off the tongue

Dressed to impressed

As I take the stage

Been an insider for too long

Writing has been my first love

Trapped in a hidden agenda

Not sure what the world will think of my words that plays upon your mind

Visualize as I speak them to you

Ladies and Gents

Take your seats as the wonderful Lyrical Passion takes the stage

I know longer read from my poetry books of stories and fantasies

But to tell you a story

To take you on a ride along

To my place

Enter Lyrical’s space

The erotics and inspirations

The motivations of my poetry style

I’ll have the room spinning and heated with my words to give you an encore

I’m certain and sure

I want my fame to shine as all eyes on me

As I walk on stage dressed to impress

Shaken and Seductively

I pour out my lyrics of stories

Of words that I have kept hidden on my canvas

Can’t you see the vivid mixtures of colors?

Pouring from my heart and speaking from my tongue

Listen to the arrays and metaphors I tell you

Swaying and sitting on the stage

All eyes on me now





I’m about to tell you a story

Allow me to be famous and enter the fantasies of my spotlight

Give me the microphone over and over and allow this young poet to spill her inkwell

So vividly

So emotionally


Filled with the poetic ink

Holding her own

Speaking to the atmosphere filled with fans and all types of people

Give me the chance to tell it all what I have hidden for too long

Allow me to hold the spotlight and your heart if I might

Watch me work


Poetically upon your soul

You will get mixed and entwined with my inner beauty of sassiness and sexiness

I got a story to tell

Just give me the microphone

And allow my fame to shine!

let my fame shine

Still Strong

strong black woman

Her King has left her…


Into tiny


Her heart that has bled the tears of betrayal and frustrations

She cries her eyes out in the darkness

Never in front of him

To hurt in the middle of misery

How could love stab her in the back?

Quietly she wiped her tears and heart

A strong woman she is

strong woman

Her heart is special

To be treated like A Queen that she is

Who deserves a love that is special and pure

No tears are worth the hurtful nights

The betrayal

The lies

But A King  that will meet her in the corner of her heart

With a smile that lights up the world

Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning

As the sun hits your face

It’s a start for a brand new day

A fresh anointing

New beginnings

To smile and be happy and speak positive thoughts into the world

Laugh to keep from crying and to dance in the midst of your problems

They shall vanish away

As you sip from the fountain of happiness

To bow in your presence

To dance as you release yourself into the atmosphere

“Good Morning World!” as you scream at the top of your belly

The sun smiles back at you covering you with the light of grace

A Love Affair

For years the love has faded away

Complications desires to turn back the hand of time

But in  reality things has changed

Was love in the present giving me a sign?

A love that wasn’t clear in the beginning

Young and happy

Two lovers

A love that was uncover

Now trying to understand what is the purpose of still being in the game

A commitment is all I ask for

Without you feeling ashamed

Don’t you want a love that  true to you?

Who will always stick by you?

A love that’s true

But yet far away

A love that’s buried in the soul

Gazing at the stars to see your refection

A love perfection

A lover’s connection

Find your inner peace within the happiness of your heart

Somewhere in your life

It was a love that never grew apart

love affair

Let Go

An act of reality

Let go of the past that’s hindering you from enjoying the present and preparing for the future

The pain that dwells and burdens your heart

Kiss the sky and the moon and give God all your problems

Dance around the moon and pray unto the angels

Be happy for what you have and learn to laugh

Learn to dance in the rain and pray for forgiveness

It’s only a test

Do what makes you happy

God wants you to confess


Let Go!

let go
