To Be Yours… By: Ami Brown
To be your dime
To be your wife
To be your lady
To be your bitch
To be your dick sucking slut on the late night….
Don’t know why nothing would make me more pleased than to bath you & watch you air dry on my knees….loving you down as we please….
I would rub your manhood with coconut oil
Press almond butter into your upper body….
Nothing more than to please you..
A little hunny on my clit for when you want something sweet for your lips.
69 in between time & time again we bust nuts on each others chin…..
220.127.116.11 hundred lifetimes before
My ancient future lover and I
only stop to begin again…
God says that he dresses the flowers that only last but for a short time, and we are much more than the flowers…so will he not adorn us in beauty as well? So why do we keep trying to dress ourselves…with misleading charm, deceit, promiscuity, and a bunch of non-virtues that taint the image of a woman, and conceal who we really are, who God created us to be. He looks to us in disappointment, asking why we ever felt like his wardrobe for us wasn’t good enough. He dressed us in virtue and we replaced it with foolishness, he dressed us in righteousness and we replaced
it with wretchedness, he dressed us in beauty and we replaced it with unwarranted insecurity..It’s like we’ve taken off our value and replaced it with nothingness, and we compensate by seeking power through seduction and manipulation, letting Satan transform our hearts to favor that of Jezebel’s…like we’re naked in the garden of Eden like Eve, all of the worst parts of us, tattooed to our souls by this world, exposed with a bad attempt to cover them up with makeup, jewelry, and fancy clothes.
How could we look in the mirror and like what we see, yet hate what we’ve become…we move so fast, we have no time for healing, and so we settle in concealing our blemishes with self-justification, denial, and a disposition of defensiveness…But God can see us #nofilter. And yet he STILL loves us. When will we come back to him and let him adorn us once again with his grace and the beauty that only he gives…from the inside out. Healing all the scars that we seek to cover and giving us no more reason to hide. Clothing us with strength and dignity…striding in wisdom,
raising our spirits higher than the heels we walk in. With confidence in him, rather than in our ever-wardrobe-changing, malfunctioning selves. Giving us stability so that we can continue to walk with him and stop falling to our faces in self-afflicted pain. Crowned with God’s beauty and ravishing in his treasures. The world’s beauty is fleeting and temporary; God’s beauty brings honor and is everlasting. What will you allow to adorn you?

Sleeping on the Moon By: Roshanda Johnson
You and I
With open eyes
Pray the Lord our souls to keep
After we pray
Let’s slip away
Soon as the house is fast asleep
Put on your robe
Tip on your toes
Gently to the roof we’ll climb
And we both know
Where we will go
I’ll take your hand and you’ll take mine
Let’s lift our arms
Embrace life’s charm
Up and away we will fly free
Through the stars
And around Mars
To a place made just for you and me
We’ll dance and sing
On Saturn’s rings
Jupiter is the place to play
We’ll split between us
A cake on Venus
With frosting from the Milky Way
Let’s do judo
Up on Pluto
Drink milk shakes on Jupiter’s moons
Let’s take a sail
On a comet’s tail
Then ice skate all across Neptune
We’ll sight see
Then morning will be coming soon
When you and I
Get sleepy eyes
We’ll go to sleep on God’s great moon
