Sometimes your eyes….

black-women-looking-onCaptureMy Featured Blogger this week is Martina Kia of Kia’s Notions. I know virtually nothing about Kia, except that she may be Ugandan and that I like her. I like her openness and vulnerability. I like her writing, which ranges from essays to advice, to poems like the one below. And most of all, I like her heart. I’m guessing you will too!

Kia's Notions😊

Sometimes you confuse me too

Sometimes there’s a fiery glint in your eyes

Makes you look frightening

Like you could be dangerous with a sword

I feel like I should run

To the ends of the earth

And never look back.

Sometimes your eyes shine so brightly

They almost sparkle

In times like this you are very endearing

And my heart pushes against its seams

Makes me want to bake a cake

And write our love song on it.

Sometimes your eyes are grey

Dullened like clouds for rain

Rain that never ends

And I want to cry with you

To hold you and make you believe

The sun will come out again.

    Such a beautiful poem. It is very particular, but speaks to something very universal at the same time. Thank you for introducing us to this gifted writer.
