Don’t complicate this

by Sonya McKinzie

Open your heart and let me in

I understand that you have been hurt

Please let me inside

If only for a moment

And once you do, you will not want me to leave

I love you

And I have faith

In the possibilities

If you complicate this

By holding up the wall

You will make me go away

when you know

you want me there

And you need me to stay

I know you can love me

If you would just let me in

Let me be

 the rhythm of your heart’s beat

I can heal the broken places inside of you

I belong to you

And I know you want to belong to me too

Don’t complicate this

You need me

Just as much as I need you

Please let me in

once I am there

You will never let me go again

I will care for you

By Sonya McKinzie

Echoes linger in the air

The black back drops

Are like magic and imagery

Perfection

At its very best

I will care for you

Our love is tragically poised for fatality

Your love is worth dying for

I will care for you

With no conditions

You are the sweetest poison

The most fatal attraction

And it is magic

And I will care for you

The most sensual death

Twisted

Erotically

Fatal

Sensibly senseless

But I will care for you

The sweetest poison

This

by Sonya McKinzie

When we are apart

I long for you

Unquenchable thirst

Famished

Hungry for every part of you

You are my male image

I am your Eve

Come to me Adam

and this

This is where I should be

in your presence

The better half of who I am

The left to my right side

Your rib

You are

You are

The one that defines

The line from the top of my back

To the bottom of my spine

You are

You are

My better half

The biggest and deepest

Part of me

Our union is divine

Destined

Today is the beginning to a never ending

Not a story

and this

This is where I should be

in your presence

Far from a fairy tale

You are

You are

We were born to be together

Placed in our mothers wombs

At the same time

Predestined

We are

Destined for greatness

In this lifetime

And beyond

Worth more

By Sonya McKinzie

I am worth more

The credit I am given

Far from a hidden disposition

or indiscretion

I am worth more

What you think I am

And what I know I am

Are unparalleled

Two different point of views

Two different reasons

For being here

Look at me now

Because when I walk away

You won’t see me again

I am worth more

Idiocracy and vulgarity got the best of me

by Sonya McKinzie

Vulgarity

Most of the time

I am a good girl

Respectful and well-spoken

But sometimes

I speak out of context

When I am pissed off

Wishing you would get out of my fucking life

You make me sick and tired

I wish you would go away

Leave me alone so I can enjoy this high

Mary in my lungs

Smoking, puffing in

Blowing thoughts of your out

Wondering why I let your ignorance take me there

You know that place called idiocracy

Making a fucking fool of me

You take me there

Vulnerable

Fucking idiocracy

vulgarity

disrespecting myself

letting you get the very best of me

Mary in my lungs

Henny in my glass

Washing far past

Sanity

Deep into ignorance

In idiocracy

I let a man get the best of me

Fucking idiocracy

Good girl, temporarily gone bad

Crossed the line between good and bad

Its just a temporary disposition

After a few more puffs on mary

And a few more swigs of Henny

Ill be in a deeper place

Where I don’t give a damn about how I let

Idiocracy take over me

Trust Issues by Sonya McKinzie

You won’t catch me in a weak moment

To trust means to be vulnerable

To trust means to believe in you

And I don’t trust you

Perhaps, I do not trust myself

When I trusted someone before

They broke my heart

into two pieces

trust issues

are a result of giving in to vulnerability

for more than a second, I lost my sensibility

Like spies

The lies are around me

Waiting for weakness to reach the surface

I know inside I can survive without this

Trust issues

Afraid of what brokenness has done to me

A result of trusting

Someone that didn’t trust me

And they broke my trust first

Well before I had a chance to break theirs

Trust issues

I can’t breathe by Sonya McKinzie

Falling

In love

And I can’t breathe

Unable to control

My emotions

All in my emotions

And it feels like

I have known you a lifetime

I need

To breathe

Without you

Because I did it before

Now it seems as if

I cannot breathe one breath without you

How can I be

Falling

Its only been a few minutes

few hours

a few days

a few months

a few years

a few lifetimes

since I met you

And I need you

I am falling in love

I am in love

With you

I can’t breathe

If I am not with you
