Inner-Stirrings of the Soul

My body is YEARNING for movement.
Limbs so long, always cramped up
In tight spaces
From being in too-small places
No one could ever understand the pain
In all my years of hiding in shame
From the teasing and torment…
spiraling down in a mutation to SELF-LOATHING…
And spending many years climbing back up
Many MORE years remembering that I have wings..
The truth of the matter is…
I just want to DANCE.

Poetry

Destination

Abstract-Art-Amie-Williams

She said she wanted to Dive Deep,
So he took her DEEPER
Past the limits she created against herself
Past the default faults of her essence
Simply because what she saw was only
A skewed version of her True Essence
So he took her hand…
And they DOVE.

She said she wanted to Dive Deep…
So he took her DEEPER…
Past the realities they were both fed from conception
Past the dreams they were told could never be
Past the falsehoods they saw through from the start
Once they started to see…

Dive…
Swim…
In a new direction…
Go…
He helped her on her way…

Things fell apart, broken down to the Basic Essence…
Shapes, symbols, sensations
Colors, texture, endless contexts…
She dove deep
He took her DEEPER.
They broke the surface on the Other Side
Deep inside.

The Lovers,
They became, to their relief

After Hours...

A New Direction

I’m just sitting here in my room at 1:31 a.m. in semi-darkness listening to the haunting voice of my Angel Love, Aaliyah  and I’m just thinking.

Once again, after all that’s been going on with me (I’ve been SO busy brainstorming, building, moving, growing, living, twirling, creating, and just simply BEING) I’ve decided to take a new direction with my online presence. In order to keep my websites/profiles better organized and for me to feel less scattered, spread too thin or too far like I’m trying to do TOO MUCH, I’m going to assign specific areas of my artistic endeavors (ALL still for SOUL Meets BODY™ of course!) to each website. That means there’s going to be quite a bit of reconstructing–whew!

Journal

Starting here and now, keeping it short, sweet and to the point, this is what it’s go:

My “FANTASTIC FOUR!” 😀

  • WordPress – All of my creative writings (poetry, short stories, random tidbits and some journal-like entries) ❤
  • Tumblr – Here will be my new-but-old-but-still-new pursuit of PHOTOGRAPHY! Mainly visual; mostly reblogs of things I like; a sometime-extension of my Instagram posts
  • Facebook – The same going-ons of me and SOUL Meets BODY™, including new art plus some W.I.P. shots, interesting articles from other sources I may share from time to time and staying connected with everyone on the “business” side of things. 😉
  • Instagram – Just me being me on a day-to-day basis (pictures, videos, random tidbits, etc).  focusing mostly on ALL the forms of art in my life. 🙂

That’s that.

And so it begins.

Again. 😛

After Hours...

Late-Night Ramblings

Midnight…here we go.

To all my lovely readers out there, I bet you’re wondering, “Where on EARTH did this woman just come from writing post after random post…out of NOWHERE?”

One minute I’m here, the next minute I VANISH into the shadows of the night. And when I vanish, it’s usually for a long while where I don’t post at all, but little does anyone know, I’m silently lurking through WordPress (and now StumbleUpon) discovering new sources of inspiration. New ways of looking at things, things that confirm what I already hold dearly inside of my Spirit. You know, things like THAT. And sometimes…I really AM offline.

Then out of the blue, I write these things. These random, “unconnected” things.

But WHY?

I could just be blunt and say, “Because I CAN,” (which is true), but the answer I’ll give is, “I don’t know.”

OK, that’s the short, safe and uncertain answer. Honestly, like I said, I’ve been feeling SOOOO inspired lately, by things I’ve been reading, studying, StumblingUpon, my own thoughts, messages from my Angels and Ancestors, music….I pull inspiration from almost EVERYWHERE.

Well, for the past year, I’ve been focusing my energy into my visual arts and even though I pretty much write everyday, it wasn’t CREATIVE WRITING. So basically, that part of my writing ability somewhat atrophied. Ah, well. It’s time to get it back, that’s all.

Let me just make a couple of things clear:

1) I have this strange, new fascination with Asides here. ❤

2) There’s no further explanation I can or will give. You just have to FLOW with this. 😉

In the midst of all this, I’ve been getting new ideas left, right and center in relation to my Arts (writing, drawing, painting, designing, etc.) and this blog! Ooo! When I pull everything together just the way I like it and make some decisions, I’ll DEFINITELY let you in on it. Why should I leave y’all out in the cold? 😉 ❤

Ok, enough rambling!

Oh, Did I Forget to Mention–?

–that I’m a contributing blogger on my sister Tae Queen’s website as seen below? (Yes, that picture is a link to the site). ❤

cropped-ataensic

Her website is all about Holistic Healing, Wellness, High Vibrations, Knowing Thy Self, etc. similar to what I wish to achieve here on my personal blog. 🙂

It’s a group of us working together on this website, which is the brainchild of Tae herself. There’s all KINDS of wonderful, fantastic, helpful information on this site. From yoga to holistic nutritional recipes, from medicinal herbs to African heritage and history articles, from music to health and beauty and FINALLY–to MY topic, which is Art & Culture. 🙂

I actually just posted a new blog entry a few minutes ago all about the dreaded ARTIST’S BLOCK and SOURCES of INSPIRATION. Check it out when you have a chance and tell me what you think:
