*~*~*My Poetry*~*~*

GOD'S Design

When ,I first saw you
My heart pulsated
To a love rhythm
I knew it was
An aura
Of divinity
Sent from
The Heaven's
Bestowed by
The Holy Trinity
The last separate
Breath we would ever take
Right then and there
Our World changed
So, much for the better
A new meaning
As ,if prearranged
I stared you down
Never said a word
I ,knew you could feel me
Somehow, I was aware
This love would be
For eternity
A feeling so, extremely rare
As, you glanced over
I was seeing
My life's love
As,You knew right
Then you loved me
Even though you did not
Know me
When our eyes met
The feeling
Of Love
Was beyond control
Deja vu
Something so true
A uniting of two souls
A love so powerful
Yet,so tender
Filled with simple pleasure
A scared treasure
From that day forward
We never were apart
Fore, we dwell
In each others heart
A love so divine
Drawn from GOD'S design

Poetic Justice

Expectorating the daily slime

Through my poetic rhyme

Each stroke of my quill

Flushing away the landfill

Weapon of choice is my intellect

Bring on the next issue and/or suspect

Pitching stanza's from my bullpen

Captured on the paper linesmen

Oh it's on it's a prose filled wartime

Through my verse, I will restore peacetime

Jotting fiercely,extinguishing injustice

Slowly, steadily, achieving a poetic justice


You Are the Reason Why I Rise

Every morning when I rise
I praise God for blessing our love
Our love soars as high as the skies

I can see heaven come alive within your eyes
It makes me know why I rise everyday for your love
I'm sure we can be proud of cause true love never lies

Oh, we've got so much love
Blessed with another day to share
I feel the power of love hovering from above

We've got something to praise God for
I thank God for sending you
Our love is something I adore

Our love is like being on cloud nine
I'm grateful for marrying you
I'm thankful for you being mine

I feel love so true
Holding you, loving you
Our love chases away blue

When folks start to criticize
I pray for reassurance
I know God is on our side

Glass Tears

Glass tears cutting like shards of diamond rough as I cry

Tears of glass burning my face like a rainfall of lye

I'm pouring rugged piercing ceaseless tears of glass

Weeping sharp glass tears for this senseless War to pass

Streaming icy glass tears for innocence taken at tender years

Shedding gashing glass tears for the homeless whom no one cares

Pelting jagged glass tears for all the endless injustice and fears

Trickling burning glass tears for violence to stall against our peers

Praying for my glass tears to dry into a crystal window of hope

Until then faith and flowing glass tears are my only way to cope

Night Writer

I'm a Night Writer,a Night Owl,hoot hoot

Prose singing tunes ,from my ink filled flute

Purging life's tribulations and tension

Spiraling through a kaleidoscope dimension

As Dawn approaches, I continue savoring

Penetrating, deep thoughts,unwavering



I formulate like a flood's ferocious flow

Issues , passion , and lessons to grow

Drip, drip, drip, the ink soars,then gush

A fierce ,expressive poetic rush

Exposing my essence, escaping free

Therapeutic comforting pieces of me

Poetic versus dancing across the sheet

Leaving me satisfied , cleansed, and complete


True Love

The Truest Love dwells one's mind

The rarest gem you'll ever find

What had began as desire and lust

Slowly turns into comfort and trust

Love that encases,your body head to toe

It's pure and calm , yet, radiates a glow

A bond ,so strong ,it weathers any storm

Surrounds your soul and keeps you warm

Progressing from you and me to us,then ours

It constantly blossoms delicate flowers



Ignorance is Intolerant

It's emotionally defiant

It lacks self esteem

Knows no in between

It lacks tasteful tact

It does not rely on fact

Its' Not lack of education

But absence of communication

It's a bottom feeder

It's crime is beyond misdemeanor

It lurks and slithers around

Looking for peace ground


The one I admire

Sets my Heart on Fire

Like a fine work of art

I admire you from far apart

Gazing up at the midnight sky

Holding back my urge to cry

Stirring feelings inside my mind

Truly you are one of a kind

You float with finesse

I Long to feel your caress

Your sculpted physique

Your filled with mystique

My feelings surge inside

I can no longer hide

I'm filled with desire

For the one I admire

Copyright ©2007 Jill D.


An emotional consumption

Awaiting non- existent eruption

Driven by madness

Drowning in sadness

It's your first and last breath

Final as Death


My Poetry

Verses from within my sanity

It's my escape from reality

Deep feelings inside my heart

A gallery of my life's art

Musical expressions flowing in rhyme

Dancing inside my soul for sometime

Memories & thoughts ,gathered thru ages

Tear drops ,Love ,&fantasy, fill the pages

Copyright ©2007 JillD.


Hear the pitter patter of the raindrops

Flowing along to the tune of my teardrops

Cleansing away the pent up anguish & pain

The tears are flowing ,but not in vain

Tears leave me complacent,under the moonshine

Restoring serenity, as I bask in the sunshine

Greetings Fellow Authors,

Join us November 5th thru 7th at the Northland Shopping Mall in Southfield, Michigan for the International Urban Book Festival, Detroit. A great place to sell books and teach young people the importance of reading. We have rented the entire shopping mall to get our message across to the young at risk generation. Reading is essential! Let's all encourage our youth to read at least two books per week. Let's encourage parents to make this a family mandate.

Meet and network with celebrity authors, purchasing agents from schools, libraries and major corporations plus other members of the literary community. We will hold literary workshops, panel discussions, lectures, seminars and classes on self publishing. We have 200 author tables now available, but they are certain to sell out quickly. The cost for the three day weekend is only $225. Author tables are 2' by 4' skirted with two chairs. Out of state attendees may receive discounts on hotel rooms by logging onto our website after September 2, 2010.

This is certain to be a fun filled event. Don't miss it.

Call us at (313) 446-2262 or log onto Facebook

Good to have you as a friend...And yes, we are beyond African American...but after listening to Sophia on a number of radio interviews and hearing the questions coming in, we can't run too far ahead of the pack or we will separate and leave too many behind. My body looks African American and if it came down to it, whether I agreed of not, I would be considered African the work unfolds, such identifications will or course become unnecessary...
