Posting Poetry


I've been trying to post poetry
for the past couple of days,
I can post my pictures
in so many ways.

I press the "find images" button
but all it does is go around,
in circles, making me dizzy
I've fallen to the ground.

I wanted to post a children's poem
but had to post somewhere else,
I try to do my best in this site
but sadness, I had been dealt.

What am I supposed to do now?
I'm not happy just posting pics,
watching the wheel spin 'round and 'round
hearing the mouse continuously be clicked.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I am in a few different poetry sites, where I post my poetry. For the past few days, I've been trying to post and I can't post a poem, without a picture to go with it. I finally got this poem posted, but with other pieces to no avail.


Little One,
He whispers.
Come out and play,
He calls.
Do as I ask,
He persuades.
Give me what I desire,
He orders.
I do it all,
Never knowing,
Never telling,
Always remembering.

The sky is purple,
The clouds are black.
I'm drowning in fear,
My heart beats fast.
Dead trees, dead people,
Yet all I can see
Is the demon with blue eyes
Staring at me.

Boom, boom, boom
In my chest
Goes the drum
The red drum of doom

Boom, boom, boom
I can sense it
The danger
Overhead it looms

Boom, boom, boom
Hanging overhead like fruit
Losing colour
In the gloom

Boom, boom, boom
Boom, boom
Goes the drum
The red drum of doom

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Originally, I wanted to call it heart beat but opted for Red Drum for the reason of poetry.

Within the Bounders of Love

Free Flow

Stop saying you love me
And leaving me in the same breathe
Love is unconditional
Supposed to be filled with happiness
With cloudy minds together
We can form a clear understanding
Of what love is
How to make it last
How to learn to co-exist
Within the bounders of love

When you look at me
What do you see
You say my smile
Can light up any room
That my heart is pure
Because I serve a forgiving God
I come from a line of strong black women
You love my ambitious ways
Because they bring out the best in you

Yet you push passed me in a crowded room
Never looked at me twice
Introduced yourself to me,
By saying,
What up Bitch
Now tell me
Do you really think you love me
Just because your caught up
Within the bounders of love

The hourglass has run out
Sand dust has filled the room
The fog of your essences
Has blinded you mere presences
The sound of your laughter
Echoes through the trees
As I lay here
Restless in the grass
Making love to you

Blinded by the compulsions of lust
The way you caress my ass
Does you any justices
You see,
I can still hear those words
Whatz up Bitch
As you grind in me deeper and deeper
The reality of this shit is simple
It's not love your seeking
And never was

To Love me is to respect me
But you can seeking the Bitch in me
So now that you have met her
Please be advised
Im not up for your Shit
When we are done here
Just grab your clothes
And hit the door
There is no need to cuddle
Lay in bed and converse
Cause that shit leads me to thinking
You wanna go deeper
And we both know thats a lie
Damn I just saw you with your girl
Just the other night

So many people confuse
Love with Lust
But im not condfused one bit
I know just what you want
By the way you approached me
By the way you undressed me
By the way you tongue fucked me
With my clothes on

It's not a love thing
Strictly Lust
Yes i know i'm better in bed
Than she will ever be
But the same way i had to learn
To discover the freak in me
She deserves the same
If you're not willing to teach her
How can you say you truly lover her
Just the same
Within the bounders of love

As Queens We Cry Out Loud...(Shequita Phillps & Evolution's of Poetry)


I am a woman first who's tears run down her face
tears of shame emptiness inside this cold heart of minds
just a woman who gives all her love to a man
only to feel like she is not worthy of his love
she feels guilt shame in this cycle of love
a woman that gives to much in love
only for her heart to be broken into pieces
shattered like glass torn up inside
this little heart of minds this love is like a fairy tale
I am a woman who gave this man
everything inside me only to find out
things that I didn't want to know that
were true that came to the light of me

I am a woman who`s soul has been through the rapture
The undying abyss we call life
The subject of loves rejections
Impaled through the heart
Totally confused
Wondering why I chose to love thee
Only to never receive the same
I am woman born to wear the scars
Burdened by my ancestor
Strong black queens of the night
We are taught to look life in the eye
Smile in his face
And never let him see you cry
But how do I hide this love I feel
When you make my soul ache
From just a mere glimpse of your face
Born and bread to stand by my man
Not a weak little punk
Thinking he will soon become a man


A Strong black woman a queen of the knight
a woman who is in fear to open up her heart again to a man
a woman who will not let him see her cry
he will not think I am weak cause I love him so much
a woman who had a hard knock life growing up
from a little girl been molested by her stepfather and Uncle
Confused bout which way to go in life
Broken down
A woman who wears a shield around her heart for protection
and blocks her heart not letting anyone in to love
do to the fact she has been hurt all her childhood life
Now as a woman she releases all of her pain through her pen


My pen bleeds mountains of confusion
As my personification grows cold
As I have a burial For this hollow well
I call my soul
Tears flowing deep
As I overflow with frustrations
Intimidated by the reflections
I see with in my eyes
Whom am I
Do I know her
I can still hear her screams for help
Begging for someone to save her
Only to hear him laughing
Why is it me
Why do I deserve such love
As my broken soul cries
To find away out
My eyes swell with tears of repulsion
Free me please
I beg of you
To look at me and see
Beyond the broken hour glass
As my soul bleeds


See beyond this inner child who has been hurt in so much pain
these tears fall down my face as I bleed out
my soul cries for love understanding
caring that unconditional love
pure true real love bliss
I look in the mirror and see my reflection as a woman
and as I look I see dat inner child broken free to pen all the feeling growing up
seeing how her life took a turn
from all the confusion in her life
slowly mending all the broken pieces
growing up


As woman so many of us face this distant struggle
Whether to love him or leave him
Before he kills us with his abusive temper
There is no more confusion
When I look into the mirror
It is your bitterness i see
So listen up Queens
We have been to the point of no return
Broken down by those who claimed to love us
Holding on to Gods unchanging hand
Is truly a blessing
So look into my eyes as I smile from the inside
No more tears to shed for that abused little girl is dead
Her pain has been transformed within me
Through my many years of struggle
Yes i am living outside your bubble
You can no longer hold me down
Try to control me or even kill me
Because everything that existed
Within me for you is now dead
For I heard my mother say
Hold your head up high child
We are the reason God continues to smile
As Queens we cry out loud

Lemon Lime

You stood there screamin' at me

Across the room like a coward

As I sat there on the bed

Motionless 'n' bold as could be

Word by word I proved you wrong

Everything you said was twisted

Nothing you said held a fact

Nothing held much truth at all

[pre solo] (Like in "A 1000 Times Goodbye")

"Don't ever touch my shit again"

"Don't worry, I'll never see you again"

[verse x-1]

I'll be here when you need me

Said the Hammer to the Man

I'll be here when you need me

Said I to all my "friends"

[verse x-2]

They picked me up and used me

Like a tool at their command

But now they will feel sorry

Without me anymore


[pre chorus x-1]

I'm the fire on your wick

That kept you from burning out


But now (Like "I had" in Skin O My Teeth)

I'm sick of (Say it like "Sicka") bein' warmhearted

When life starts getting cold


Don't get pissed when I fight back

When you know that I'm right

Don't get distraught with me

When you know you're wrong

(Higher vocals/guitar start here)

I will fight til you back away

Like I always do



[verse xx-1]

I was your backbone so long

It felt so right for us both

Through thick and thin I was there

Never letting you down

[verse xx-2]

I'm done being the pillars

That held you up when you slumped

I crumble right beneath you

And watch as you tumble

Song = Skin O' My Teeth

You use me when your feelin' glum

Then later on you treat me as scum

To you I'm just another bum

Sorry for dreamin' of what should've become

I wasted my time on waiting for you

Chances after chances that you blew

Farther and farther apart we grew

Our next rendezvous so long overdue
