"They ruled it a suicide but surely it was homicide the social pressures of the world I surmised became way too heavy, the repressed memory of abuse exploded suddenly, which out poured from his eyes and found high tide in his own blood. He was discarded by hands promising to catch him. He was received by the phantoms that attacked him. He knew not the art of war, nor the art of love, to change his tactics, so his own blade had found his skin. His legs collapsed under him and he plunged into the dark, into the undefined spaces of his fragile heart. Did you hear his call? Did you know his plight? Those silent whispers in the night are heard not, but by attentive ear. Those who have secretly battled their fears and trails, leaving upon them a power unaware." - Ricardo Hanley Jr.

[3.]
Again, before your eyes
is the divergence of light
and dark, the difference between
a heart, the construct of a soul.
Most hearts are not black
or white, but mystic and
complex, shaded in grays,
shrouded in deep hues and
brilliant tints of each,
the collection of experiences
that create you, melding together,
though ashen and dappled--
a smoky labyrinth--
the palette that leads you
exactly where you belong,
that delivers you home,
that allows you to sleep deeply
and be in constant comfort
and peace, never alone
.

"Lessons Through the Lens"

Something special about a black-and-white photograph
There's a certain soul that it posesses
All on its own
A haunting quality behind the eyes
Notice the blend
Light and dark evenly
Coexisting
The absence of one or the other
Would make the image disappear
A lot can be said metaphorically
And you thought it was just another selfie?

Spoken word🔊🔊 👇
Do you remember the night we met?
I was a teenager, sitting on a street bench
Street light flickering above me on a dark Friday night
The horror I felt inside was a contrast to the young ones celebrating another year in life with music of some sort of love
I never loved or was loved
That was my realization that night
You see, earlier I jumped in front of a red shiney car
It stopped in time,
They didn't even linger to ask why or if I'm alright, I don't think I really wanted to die that night
I cried for a while because my eyes puffed and squinted at the sight of the flickering light
Then you passed by, a stranger.
You spoke words of wisdom and tenderness and made me smile
I don't recall your name or how long you stayed holding my hand
But that night I believed for the first time, that life is worth navigating the tides and I want to be you to others when I grow up

3rd Grade
:
I am not here for this
Grand Spelling Bee.
I am not here to win,
nor am I here to be right.
I could give a shit for spotlight.
The microphone they handed
to me when it was my turn,
exploded in the palm of my hand.
I am not here for this
Grand Spelling Bee.
I am not the popular kid
looking for new bullets on my
student council president
application form.
I am a typo, I will not spell
obtuse for you, but I will be it.
I am not here to win your
Grand Spelling Bee
I am here to end it.

the anniversaries of 23
:
I used to like the number 23.
It was different and mysterious;
a prime in all of its mystical glory.
An enigma of the entire universe
and conspiracy theorists alike.
Then this simple number,
changed my life on two
separate occasions.
A number masked as
sad days in lost time,
permanently signed
in dark, black ink.
Officially approved
by judges and
forever, never
existed.

cold whispers ~ tagged by @cc_writes for #writingchallenge prompt #night
:
3 a.m. laundry to wash off my sins.
I step cautiously toward the stairs;
this basement watches me happily.
I hate this house and its ghosts.
the stairs creak and moan in delight,
the appliances are mocking my fear
rumbling and tumbling madness.
the hazy moon hangs itself darkly
as my bare feet touch the cold stone,
the light bulb pops and flickers,
i reach for my lighter and feel chills.
i hear the whispers from the corner;
that cellar calls me to its trappings.
i feel a hand on my shoulder and turn
and freeze; dropped baskets and retreat.
my sins of this night, will wait for the sun.
