her side

woman-crying

She say for her family
she do what she can
when in reality it be for her man
who wants another mother like her son

so she wipe both they asses / and then her tears cause it be from the same shit

too tired more / more tired than / her mother who
taught her how to stay
who lived and died the same way
the palm reader etched on her palm.
now that she know,
she can remain calm
when he comes to bed
smelling like fuck nut and dried saliva

he’ll say it’s all in her head
so she close her eyes and have nightmares
of forever being a fool.

tiresome tuesday

applaud Her broken heart poetry
then pass Her a notepad and fresh ink

She dies when rape is spoken of so desensitized.

Like a chipped fingernail or
wrecked car She can call and get
a claim number for
It doesn’t get renewed!

She just let it get used and disown its’ power
so next time he wants to
punch it
or break her back
or dig in dem guts
It won’t hurt
Her.

We’re in the UK today with The Town Dance!

Hi All,

Today we are in the UK at Carole’s Book Corner promoting The Town Dance!  If you haven’t read the synopsis yet, go check it out.  If it’s your cup of tea, buy a bag to take home to enjoy later.  Well, you know what I mean… buy the book 🙂

This is day three for the release of my debut novel and the response has been amazing!  People are full of conversation after reading the book because of the story.  Let me explain…

When I began research on the top of same sex assault, all erotic/exotic stories and topics came up during my internet research.  This presumably has to be the thoughts that come to mind when people read the synopsis.  It is assumed to be about lesbian rape or an assault between two lesbian women.  It is not.  Nor is it an erotic exploit on two women sexually engaged.  It’s not a fantasy  It’s a story loosely based on a friend’s experience with same gender assault and breaking her silence some 15 years later.  If it happened to a friend of mine… it has happened before and thereafter.  I took a risk and chose to write about it.
