King, too soon

He believes she’s the one
She’s tired, exhausted of hearing those exact words
Coming from different men in different form
He wants her to believe what her eyes can’t see
I’m not here for your current present moment, I see what you’re carrying, I’m here to bring forth on that moment that you’ve been waiting and working on. I believe you’re strong. Please, say no more, your eyes tell it all.
I may be talking now but I promise you will see action if you give me a chance
I’ll be patient as you demand.”

As she has moment to herself
She talks to the most high
“What do you say? Is he finally the one?
Oddly enough it feels good, but no
I give to many chances to only be disappointed
Again I think it’s best I refrain from ever loving another man again.”

Going back and forth she can no longer take the hurt, those “nice words” every time her birthday comes around false promises left alone next day her phone rings apologies, excuses
It’s too much, too soon.
He smirks as tears fall down her face she looks stressed, he lets her know that she’s blessed, and that he is for real.
He says, “If you say no today, I’ll respect your space, I promise I’m not crazy but God showed me you as my wife, if I don’t see you again for awhile just know you were mine before you knew it. You’re broken I get it, but I see you as whole, you deserve to love and to be loved, I’m
a man a, man of a God I will not play with your heart but love you like your favourite old school r&b song so until we meet again be strong and by the time we cross paths your mind shall be in a different state. Remember you’re a queen you deserve the cream everything that gleamed everything that’ shines and everything that’s mine.”

She sighs, “Too much too soon, take my number, stay in touch
I need a friend more than anything.”

Goodnight hugs, could this be the beginning of a never ending love.

Butterfly

Free as a butterfly
Fly away
Gone away
Tears of joy
She decided to walk away
The pain feels painless
Numb to your touch
“Shhh… I’m annoyed, you’re talking to much
You said you left work early because you missed me
It’s been days since you’ve made attempt to see me
I’m sick see
Dying
You couldn’t tell
I wish you well
no get well soon wishes, hugs or kisses
I guess he was probably out with the misses
It’s okay keep your distance
Your favourite form of communication is through dialing digits.”
Vibrant thoughts of
Laughter and love
Her reality is tough
Love spoken through words and hurt
No actions, surprise gestures or outings of any sort
She craves real love
Once a caterpillar turned into a beautiful butterfly in due time
Fly fly fly
Beautiful butterfly your time for real love hasn’t yet died

 

Undress Me

Deeper than what you see visually

Stand still and look at me

Slowly undress me

One piece at a time

Take precaution of what you’re about to see

Do you see the scars?

The marks?

Proceed further, for this will determine if you’re the one

Can you handle, what’s next

or should I start to get dressed?

You’re unfolding my story

Stand still don’t move just look

What do you see?

The same person you met moments ago

Pretty brown eyes

Thick thighs

Wearing that skin tight red dress that got your attention

I believe that’s why you came and approached me

You said my smile allowed your eyes to walk on by and say hi

My voice soothing to your heart

Butterflies in your stomach every time I speak

So undress me

No time wasted,

I got things to do and places to be

Caught you off guard

Hey,

It’s a start

 

No one has ever seen me unclothed

Her story has never fully been told

Are you the one with the heart full of gold?

Oh should I get back to my journey while browsing my phone?

I look up

His response was more than words.

 

To be continued…

 

 

 

Melody of Love

Love is like the beating of the drum, the snare to my heart

Press on the keys to the beat, that’s the beat my hearts speaks to you

Pull the strings on the guitar this melody of us will go far

Love is when I wake up in the morning and hear the birds sing in unison

Love is when the sunrises you shine and I smile

Summer time on the beach our bare feet leave footprints in the sand

Writing our initials

You plus me equal love for eternity

Feeling like a teenage love in our late twenty’s

This love is like my favourite song on repeat

I don’t ever want this song to end

Living in the new millennium

This generation of love isn’t easy

However you make it feel like a 90s love song

You know, “Your love is a one in a million, it goes on and on and on.”

Don’t stop let’s keep loving and vibin’ to our melody of love

Just us.

We go live and I sing off key

I blame me this time for allowing you to play off key

You were only following my lead

“This record sounded much better on the CD on repeat”

Practice makes almost perfect

For this love isn’t perfect

Just like every performance won’t be perfect

Doing what you love which includes the melody of us is worth it.

Reminisce, our love is that instrument we picked up for the first time

It was love at first site

Unaware of how it works

Nothing but dedication and hard work,

We made it work we learned the basics on this “instrument” and how it really works

Perfecting our craft until the end of time

This I call the..

Melody of Love

 

 

 

Something For The Ladies

A gift

A blessing

A privilege

To be a WOMAN

We love harder than no other

The nurturing kind, the heart of gold that doesn’t seem to age as we grow old.

The ability to multiply what may be handed over from mens supply

We hurt, we cry, go through things in life that no man could ever understand why

Yet we wear our smile a thousand times, keep our head on strong to cut society’s lies

WE RISE

My oh my!

Times are changing for the better

Our kind is finally being recognized not by her beauty but by her ambition and strong mind

Her hunger to change the roles and let the world know that we too can do what a man can do.

After all what a man knows best comes from a woman’s womb

Woman continue to be your own boss, be an example to the younger generation watching us,

The ability to be limitless to progress and wreck anything we put our energy towards.

A reminder that us woman need to stick together through all of this

Enourage one another

Love one another

Uplift one another

Most importantly continue to love our brothers.

We need each other, more than we think we do

Women I love you,

I continue to root for us

For we are next up!

Happy International Women’s Day to all the hardworking, ambitious, strong, beautiful woman of the world. In case no one has told you yet

Woman to Woman,

YOU are appreciated!

With love,

– Crystal Bri xox

 

A Midnight, Night Too Late

Reach, reach

Midnight, a night too late

He said he would wait

But she was a day too late

Now the reality she has to face

The regret in her face

Why didn’t she say what needed to say

Perhaps she was scared, lost, ashamed and afraid

That the love of her life would judge her in a interesting way

She assumed

She made assumptions bringing to life of what she thought was in his mind

How would she ever find what goes on in his mind if she doesn’t speak what she feels

Sometimes words heal

Sometimes words reveal

The emotions we see as a visual brought to life

Expect

She had expectations and expected him to understand

She expected him to “know better”

Now she’s a midnight too late

Well isn’t that great!

Just to think their last night could have been one for the books

Reach!

As she tries to reach

One more try,

One more cry only to realize that

He’s unreachable

Leaving his yesterday behind

Waking up to a new day

A new day without her

He’s so far away,  yet so close

Meanwhile her yesterday still remains today

The pain

The reality

That she was only a midnight, night too late.c548d1a2952028da6f4c206c4e514334

My oh my does time fly
Time to officially say,
Goodbye to 2017
The year of
Growth
Disappointment
& Love
Lost a few friends
Outgrew
Outgrow
What was not meant to stay
To them I say thank you for the memories we created once upon time
The bond we had has gone
She met amazing people who have been great and remain to influence, push and support her each day
This has been bittersweet more sweet than bitter.
I’ll never forget the day the lord called me
To wash away all my sins I must say
Since then my life hasn’t been the same
I lost love
I found love
I found purpose in what it is I love
Twenty eighteen Sweet twenty eighteen
I pray my dreams my goals are much closer than I expect
I ask God for direct direction
As what I build in this life is a reflection
My legacy for my family
For my unborn children
2018

I wish you all pure blessings and guidance in the new year, congratulations you made it! Now let’s get it, let’s grow.
Always love.

Me and Mine, a Love That Will Never Die

Lay down
Rest your eyes
Keep in mind you got one life
Take it easy
I know it’s not easy
As you close your eyes
You still can’t sleep at night
Anxiety has you tight
Remember the first time you found out that you were capable of producing life
You probably thought the time wasn’t right
The most high said otherwise
You survived, excited, anxious as to who you’d look like
And now this life which is your life
Relies on you to make it through even though hard times sometimes get a hold of you
Silent cries at night
Little one takes your hand and says
“Mama it will be alright”
Innocent voice
Innocent life
Should be the motivation to get you by
You have purpose
Those kids deserve
Your drive
For it’s your mission to give them a better life
Be wise when hard times arise
Think of them to get you by, the funny things they do out of the blue strangers often say “awww how cute”
Even those who haven’t yet produced life
Keep building so your empire is built right
Plan to prepare
Your future is bright
So promise me one thing
No more sleepless nights

Trying to figure out why things may not be going right

Dead beat baby father who promised to be by your side and in his childs life
You swallow your pride
With the reminder that you’ll always
have a reason to smile
YOUR CHILD

After all they are the one that knows what your heartbeat feels like from the inside

 

You are the Dream

Stand tall

Stand strong

Stand and come together as one

You are

We are

So capable of dreaming into reality

With Big dreams and big things

It’s my time now

It’s takes

compassion

passion

Love

And

Consistency

Otherwise it’s only a dream

Waiting to see it’s reality

Its purpose

You are

WORTH IT

they say no

You say yes

Because He says yes

Who God bless no man can curse

You’ve been put on this earth

For a reason, and many seasons

To fulfill the seed that was once planted

Years a go

Now you’re the growth that society can’t wait to see

Remain to seek sunshine and water consistently

I promise you that’s all you’ll need

Strong mind

Positive mind

You control what you allow inside

You choose to have your problems arise or run towards it and have them fall one day at a time.

The wind is strong but the breeze of life is what satisfies us all.

It’s okay to crawl before we learn to walk

The beauty of it all we fail, we cry, to one day smile and shine

Then we wipe those tears and take away our fears to remind ourselves to live in the moment of time and not rewind, or change what was, but to make the best out of what is

and what’s to come

Remember

You’re a seed

Seeking growth

For that everyday we wake up a new life has begun to start over,

it’s not over

You have life, I won’t lie

it bites,

but as long as you’re still alive you still have time to shine.

So stop running, inhale, exhale take a breather relax

You’ll be just fine, continue to have faith in the most high.

You are the one that defines what lies behind that beautiful smile of many seasons in which wasn’t easy but you

Stand tall

Stand strong

Confident in which you are

The sky is not the limit, there’s so much more beyond it.

You are the dream

Say to yourself

“I am the dream”

No More Rain

The sun is out,

finally the sun is out.

This was beauty to my eyes

Its been a while since I’ve seen the clear blue skies

No more rain, no more dark clouds

For my sunshine has come, and there is no more rain in this cloud

I met you, a dream come true,

I’ve dreamed of you before

We spoke, we talked, we had deep conversation

You seduced me with your mind

It was knowledge to my eyes

You caught me by suprise

Let’s just do it, let’s fly alway

arrive in the tropics

Walk the beach until sunrise

Yell to the world, “you’re all mine

You do more than just make me smile

For my sunshine has come, and there is no more rain in this cloud

Love is life

Life is free

Take a ride of life with me

Free your mind

While with me

One day,

you will see…
