Home » Love Me Out Loud (poem)


Rays of sunshine kissing your soft melanin skin

Pulling the curtains back as the sun makes its way in

Silently wondering, how did it ever get this way

Asking myself if today will be the day

The day that he professes to the world who I am 

Show me off baby, show me to the world

Hold my hand publicly, let them know that I'm your girl

Let's take long walks and get lost in gut wrenching laughter

Then we can go and do nothing together, it's your time I'm after 

Let's go grocery shopping and have some regular old fun

Cooking together, waiting for it to be all done

Now we can watch a movie as we eat our meals

Enjoying the tastes of our adjoined cooking skills

Scrolling through social media as we see our separate friends

As I wonder to myself when will it all begin
