She is Spring to my Winters gloom
Sunrise to my darkest nights
In her, my withered self blooms

See, one could say I am fragile
In her agile way, she says I’m tender
With patient ear she listens
With loving self she restores

Swerving the debris of masochism
Scrubbing low self esteem
Shaking the shackles of guilt
Shifting focus from fault
She gleans the ruins for beauty

I am earth, dust, dirt
She is a skilled sculptor
Picasso with an artist eye
In me she sees color, form, tone
In gratitude and reverence
Let me be her masterpiece

I am a sapiosexual, who finds joy in being a prolific and unapologetic composer of WCW posts. I have little stamina for books, so poetry is my reading of choice. I am a hip-hop head, I stan hard for Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Run the Jewels.
