Black on Black Arts Poems
Waking up back hurting.
Sun in my eyes, mosquito bites on my skin I begin to itch.
Swating away flies I get up from my concrete bed.
Bloodshot eyes see blurry in the light from crying myself
to sleep at night.
I've hit rock bottom but it feels like rock bottom has hit
me as I wander aimlessly for food and shelter.
Just a little taste to curb my growling stomach.
Water ever so important now more than ever as my lips dry
and crack from thirst.What do I do now?
I pray but they go unanswered.
Don't wanna go on living anymore my pain unbearable slowly
Think of me when your alone at night
Ever dream about us when your day isn't going right
Get excited thinking about the love me make
Love the risks we take
Want me to be the one that you always want to be near
Need me to say the words that your body and soul need to hear
