There’s love

Then there’s whatever we had
Toxic by nature cus you took my breath when you kissed me
Made my heart ache in ways I’d never felt before
And I can’t really remember how we got to where we got or
Where along the line we fucked up what we got
But there’s warmth where your hand used to rest on my chest
And the skin is still tender where your fingers never left
There’s love then there’s whatever tha fuck we had
I can feel your laughter reverberate through my ribs and it hits me like cold wind
But I embrace it
Close my eyes and just to feel it
Im weefin
Im tryna smoke it
Tryna remember what your smile was like and
Before that what my happiness was like
It’s barely a  memory floating through vacant space in the recesses of my mind
And it’s like tryna navigate a spaceship through time
With no direction
Absolutely no destination
Just the faint knowledge that there’s love and
Then there’s whatever we had

Sunny Scape is a safe space for Black women and queer folks. I am committed to eradicating intersecting systems of oppression that overwhelmingly affect people like myself, and doing so in a way that centers the most marginalized of us. That means that I am an activist on behalf of Black and brown queer and trans folks, children, sex workers, disabled folks, people of low socioeconomic status, currently and formerly imprisoned people, and countless others who are pushed to the back burners and relegated to second-class citizenship. This blog and everything within it is absolutely inseparable from the liberation efforts of all the aforementioned groups of people.
