WALKING IN RED PUMPS!!! (October 2010)

Join me Team Red Pump Dallas in our efforts to support LifeWalk!

Thank you for supporting the 20th Dallas LifeWalk 5K.The Dallas Metroplex has approximately 20,000 individuals that are HIV-infected, leading the state of Texas in new HIV cases. Your contribution and support of Team Red Pump Dallas is greatly appreciated as we walk to eradicate this disease. Thank you again!

About The Red Pump Project

The Red Pump Project is a national initiative of The Red Project Collective, that raises awareness about the impact of minority communities (women, people of color, LGBT). Founded March 2009, our mission is to promote HIV prevention through education, encouraging safe sex practices, and open dialogue about the issues that surround sexual and reproductive health. Using the red shoe as a symbol of empowerment to represent women affected directly and indirectly with HIV/AIDS with the incorporation of fashion into the message of HIV prevention we hope to show: Awareness is Always in Style (TM).

last call

got stress
felling helpless
life is a mess
but it could be worse
just nurse your uneasy soul
with liquor and retail
combined when well drinks go on sale
it's a not so happy hour

"locked up"

The lack of his voice brings moisture to my eyes...
tears of "where are you?"
bringing screams of "I miss you!"
that cross my lips as I whisper into the darkness... "I love you.."
I don't doubt the commitment to our togetherness...
but circumstances have restriceted the ways he can show me...
I feel like we're connected through glass...
like he's locked in an arrangement of familiarity...
awaiting his appeal...
baited breath escapes through my words...
but they're never heard...
he can only see me...
so I just smile...blow a kiss...and pray for freedom...
when the times comes, I will rejoice...
the lack of moisture to my eues...
but they will be tears of joy!

He is my reason...
my SONshine in all seasons...
my only ManCub!

POWER (poem for April 3, 2010)

That I am NEGATIVE and
knowledge is power!

TATTOO (poem for April 2, 2010)

sharp pen stabbing deep
leaving behind blood and ink
flesh becomes canvas

APRIL is POETRY month..

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.

I have several ways I plan on celebrating this year, but my first order of business is to challenge myself to right a poem EVERY DAY in April...I will post one here everyday and I would love for you to post in the comments to help celebrate a love of language arts!

The first one is a HAIKU cuz I need a warmup or two (hey, that rhymed.....WOMP WOMP) ok here goes:

hoes into housewives...
and you are NOT the father...
you ARE April's fool!

Also, I have been challenged to finish my book of poems before I turn 31. I am feeling kind of trapped in my subject matter and I love to step outside of my creative that end, I thought that the best way for me to do that would be for people to give me topics or perspectives that they would enjoy a poetic pieces about...if you wanna be my me at

first post of 2010

DAMN... #majorlatepass

I haven't blogged since WORLD AIDS DAY and life has been moving and shaking A LOT since then! Since we all know I get distracted by shiny objects, so I will give the Reader's Digest version of shit that's been going on with me since my last post... (drum roll please)

In the last few months I have:

- learned a lot about myself thanks to my "silent partner"

- made great strides in building my (still developing) intimacy consulting firm, A Lady In The Sheets! my website is VERY basic, so be patient, cuz I'm learning as I go.

- made LOTS of random new eFriends on Twitter!

- done a nude photoshoot!

- been actively expanding my poetic mind.

- TURNED 30!!

- been exploring every aspect of "knowledge of self"

- started to take my volunteer responsibilities more seriously.

- dedicated more energy to being a better communicator, woman, poet, mother, friend and family member.

- decided to READ MORE and become a more well rounded being.

- laid the ground work for a MAJOR move in my life and lifestyle!

- started actually going to the GYM! *takes a bow*

I'm sure I'm leaving some important stuff out...but it escapes me now...I really wish I could blame drugs for these brain farts, but no such luck!

Lastly, I've decided to get off my analog ass and BLOG...I'm going to Blogging While Brown in June and I am beyond excited! Thing am I supposed to be all up in a blogging conference and ain't blogged? that's where you come in, see, I got no clue what to blog about...



*tumbleweeds roll across the screen*

I'm gone do my best!

Stay tuned and shit!
