The Cutting Body.

 

This Black.

‘Black girl is
a respectable place
not like a church though,
more like a cemetery’

 

Instead of Praying.

‘I know I am loved but I cannot remember being guarded.’

 

Pitch Black.

‘Even when you are laughing
you are pitch black
a corner
no-one can see’

 

Melancholy.

‘Pain cannot enter if pleasure has not been allowed in’

Home.

 

Keep Sweet.
