Poetic Expressions by Devonia E. Daniel

My Blues Needs No Sing Along

My Blues Need No Sing AlongSong: You abandoned me love don’t live here anymore…….

Just a vacancy, love don’t live here anymore……..

My blues don’t require a sing along

It’s been battered since I was 7 and on.

First by the babysitters’ teenage fetus,

She cared more about the extra financing

then her off spring playing house in my adolescent territory.

While my innocence was taken

conviction settled in place.

For adult years would be full of sexual questioning

Freedom by DeVonia Daniel

Freedom by DeVonia Daniel

I’m a fugitive to your worldly wants,

freed from your paranormal oppression.

My exception of your abusive love made your approach smug.

Have my worldly possessions,

that lost is his gain and glory.

Extensively you’ve attempted to forbid me from my freedom,

Sightless through mind control slaughtered my eternal soul

Be Good by DeVonia Daniel

Be Good by DeVonia Daniel

Anticipation of your arrival got me flushed

Adolescent nervous,

Anxious of the nameless possibilities,

Tense speech cascade on deaf ears,

Dangerous territory of empty battle fields

Of hopeless promises to obey,

Please, be good.

Because I can’t guarantee that I will.

So don’t sit to close, or hug too tight,

Or stare at me with those eyes pleading for pleasure.

Because in minutes, maybe even seconds,

I’ll lose myself, in a brief fantasy

Of matted limbs perspiring to our own tempo

Shutters of long awaited satisfaction at ease.

Don’t smile, that handsome smile

Or articulate that profound twang that vibrates my frame.

Confines has been defined,

So for my sanity,

Please, I beg you, be good

Lost & Never Found by DeVonia Daniel


It’s crazy how we used to be joined at the hip,

Knowing each other’s every move, sometimes every thought.

Now were lost in a superficial existence, unworthy of each other’s gaze,

The break up of our bond had nothing to do with the other.

Use to always hear, something’s aren’t meant for everyone to know,

but God and yourself, never knew what that meant until an experience hit me,

wish I didn’t tell anyone; God really had a plan.

But I couldn’t keep silent from fear and no faith in my heavenly father

and in the process lost my best friend, it wasn’t worth it but like say shit happens.

It’s horrible to think of it like that, but that’s the way you wanted it.

Tried to fight it, getting tired of everyone leaving me like I never existed,

but you chose to end it, use to think you were the friend that wasn’t going anywhere,

but just as quickly as you came you vanished like unworthy men who impregnate women

claiming I’m not that babes father.

It’s like our bond never happened.

These Walls by DeVonia Daniel

brick-wallThese walls know my secrets,

My every come and go,

Late night ventures

Solo pleasures singing a duet of make believe

Of past blemish resurfacing

These walls know my secret of

Faceless names hummed in pleasure filled nights,

Peaceful sleep,

And smiling dreams of ecstasy.

God forbid they tell,
