(Some Def. Poetry kinda shit because it’s real Lol. – 12.12.13 @ 1:31pm)
I’d never read this to you without wearing white because it’s like Crack.
I just write this so I can put my mind to rest,
see you again and not startle you and make you drop the cup that is my heart.
The best part of fear is holding your hand.
The worst part is my knees and how they can’t stand to let another moment go ‘BYE’ without confessing to thee oh God.
My plans to bring death to my wavering hands with a 6 foot rod.
One day, but why tomorrow?
Why can’t we just.. borrow the Afternoon and ween it off sorrow and make full of it the present.
What am I afraid of?
I’m Afraid that when we hurt each other, We’ll both feel it.
Afraid that you are a pirate that collects those silver coins to reveal it.
Afraid that you set me on fire to make sure I’m still feeling you.
Afraid that when we made those plans to see distant lands, that they were so true – you’re already mad that you left a bag on the plane because we were talkING and you got side tracked, and I alright gotta pull out the map
to your smile because, I have that.
Putting my foot out to see if your still falling because I be trippin’
It wasn’t suppose to be like this, it was written to be like this.
I perspire when remembering the day I began to fall for the Writer.
Elevators, planes, and most marijuana strains can’t get me higher.
What a intrinsic nature to canvasas, it’s your… indispensable quality.
Time is of the essence but rushing just seems to bother me.
Venting? Yeah probably…
but it felt good.
Got My rifle, back on the job hunt. Jobs hide in library light fixtures.
* – marks the beginning and ending of a stanza
A bolder of shoulder, thankful that I told ya. Thank yall for coming on the site…..atleast I got y’all to talk too Lol. B-)
What am I suppose to do?
I don’t know.
I’m just going to be sincere, and say I wish it never came to this but I don’t know where we are or how we got here. Please believe I’m trynna find my way home. -Shadel.

I don’t want to be rich
I wish to be dipped in experiences where only Gods can be witnesses.
Where my spirit can remain intact.
Where a rhyme is the LEAST I can wrap
my arms around..No trap.
Just the struggle to fit of my grip around something way bigger than any poem I’ve ever spat.
I spit for the days I feel my HIGH-EST
I spit on the ground to clear my throat.
My identity is my words in ink on sheets.
is the reason for the black of my lips.
I spit Poetry to flee
but the taste of Sweet?
I notice that with my tongue.
So Now I put it down like this because I can’t hold all of it.
Opportunityt seeks me but I move passionately.
At this red light soon to be green.
(to be finished)
I know real love is rare but it’s there, it’s here. It’s all around you, open your eyes, taste and see that My arms are nothing to fear. I feel like Love is Love, don’t put a title on it. I’ll never love another how I love her and although that’s true, don’t you dare think for a moment that I don’t Love you that way I do.
Congratulations to the Blogger Team at STREETPOETSNYC.com for the nomination from Xtreme104fm Radio for BLOGGER OF THE YEAR!
This award is more than appreciated and this is mostly because it'scoming from the underground, and that is right where we are. It feels so good to appreciated by your audience! This is what is most important because we stand on the platform that POWERFUL IS A LIFESTYLE, and to know that our peers are standing behind us, living powerful lives as well, and spreading the word, it makes the work that much more satisfying because not only are we reaching out but we are being recieved, and Yo...
