The Love From a Black Woman

By Essence Jarrell

The love from a black woman
Runs deeper than stony mountain
Gets you higher than ecstasy Pulls you closer than magnets
Takes you in , consumes you in ways you can’t fathom
That Ebony Majesty
Speaks to your soul and not just your body
Captures you,
Holds you in spirit and
blows your mind. It opens your eyes.
This love from a black woman
is deeply rooted , as we find time to erase society lines of how
we define the love for ourselves , we have trouble finding the
love for ourselves and when we do , we are able to share it
with you,
That’s a passion that can’t be ignored
That’s a passion worth being explored and adored
For it doesn’t occur that often
The love of a black woman
Many will downplay
Cast in the shadows
Abandon in the mountains
But we still find our ground
Picking up pieces from our crown
Allowing royalty to speak through our souls, our bodies,
Without making a sound
And still find time to love you
The love of a black woman is vulnerable
Yet indestructible, undefinable, unconquerable, and
You have to see it to believe it
Don’t be afraid to be a witness.
