A Chance Meeting

Poem By Angela Davis

I saw her in the lot
facing a man twice her size
Defiantly she shouted
her palm cracking his bearded cheek
sending him away ashamed

She saw me standing there
spellbound for a moment
She caught my gaze
I was unable to look away

She slowly came to me
introducing herself
in a soft, sensual voice
asking that we go for a stroll

Casually we strolled down the street
After some time she took my hand
and stole my heart
though I would had given it

When she took me home
she walked me to the door
For a long moment
my eyes met hers
and I was held captive
I knew I never wanted to be released

As she lowered her lips to mine
I was lost, never to be found

Anymore...

You say that you love me,
You say that you're here,
You say that I'm not alone,
That I don't have to be anymore...

Remember

I remember
hiding, crying,
cowering, screaming,
begging God to end my life

Letting Go

For so long I buried and denied
the anger that dwelt within
for all the horrid deeds done to me
that which I could not repress

Shattered

My dreams shattered in the tense stillness
as endless threats and blows clothe my form
My stomach flutters in familiar fear
and I am ashamed of my weakness

Fatherly 'Love'

Hellish beast hunts the night
Stealing loved ones from my sight
In the darkness all is lost
Was my freedom worth the cost?

For Every Woman

This is for every woman
that cries herself to sleep
that lies alone in bed at night
that stays awake, unable to sleep
