Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

Cold Metal

I could make a home out of this cold, metal building

Two doors, two windows, two litters laid out in the corner

I’m cozy in a camouflage blanket that smells like lavender and dreams

My blouse is folded next to the backpack I’ve learned to live out of

Two weeks down. 14 days have all blurred into one

I don’t need much to survive these days but six hours of sleep and an alarm

I wouldn’t ask for much more but someone that reminds me of love

I could live with three less hours of sleep and three more hours of affection

For now, I’m growing tired, staring at the green exit signs and red lights

I’m drifting off to sleep thinking about how I could let someone in

I could feel at home with love in this cold, metal building

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
