With love from me to me

A love letter from myself for myself and to myself

Dear Nandi

You are everything that you didn’t think you would be when your grow up. Maybe that’s because you didn’t know the truth back then. That life, happens and sometimes things fall apart just to fall in place.

I want you to know that I am proud of you. For learning and growing from your trauma, I’m glad that you choose to continually be a student of life, learning by the day what it has to teach weather good or bad. I adore the woman that you become the generation that you are founding, you’re a beautiful black queen

on a fine journey, never forget that.

Finally, I want you to know that I love you and that I am sorry I wasn’t patient with you. I promise to love you everyday, to give you the kindness and respect you deserve.

Here’s to love,

Here’s to cheer

Here’s to loving me without any fear.

Selfish, maybe. But I love to think it’s important to remind yourself of just how much you are worth and just how much love you have for you.

So here’s my challenge to you today, what kind words would you love to tell yourself today?

I love you all and appreciate your support and remember to give yourself just as much of love and respect that you expect from the rest of the world.

Happy valentines day.


By your stormy side (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

I lay afloat
On the sea of your lies
And upon the tears I’ve cried
I lay afloat.

Without a boat
I have sailed your tides
Stayed by your stormy side
Without a boat.

Without a coat
I have stood in the rain
Of your never ending pain
Without a coat.

Petals Bleed (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

The poetry of the rose
Is of beauty and pain.
Tempting to the touch,
Till blood lays the stain.

Perspective is everything
For many won’t see her good.
In the aftermath of her lover’s hurt
She is often misunderstood.

Beauty is a blessing,
And a curse indeed.
For when you feel the pain-
It’s really the petals that bleed.

Days find me (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

Sunrise finds me

In places I love to be,

Chasings views I love to see,

Running out of breath,

Yet continuing the journey.

Sunset finds me

Marveling at it’s beauty,

Having moments in soliloquy,

Standing in awe,

Penning down some poetry.

Poem in the shower (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

I lost a poem
Somewhere in the shower.
It struck me with such intensity
And with such power.

The struggle to find it,
Is of such torment.
All because it refused to come to me
At a more opportune moment.

Wishing the pain away (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

I wish I couldn’t feel.
That way I’d never have pain,
And never need to heal.

I wish I could be
Without emotion.
To be numbed from
Desire and passion.

Emotions cripple me in every way.
Poetry is oftentimes
The only reason I’d like them to stay.

Moonlight Musings (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

Look you bright,
You moonlit sky.
Cast a shadow of my window frame,
Onto my eyes.

Depict the moon,
For all her might.
Reflecting fragments of day,
Into the night.

Like you bright,
You nearby cloud.
Inspire my mental magic,
And let my thoughts run wild.

By: Phanuel Ayelum.
