Music... By Leroi Poet

When Music vibrates against my ear drums,
I go to a place of zen on the calmness spectrum
Not in the US, but I visit a dreamy state,
Where chilled vibes trump the power to concentrate.

Twitter-Sweet By LeRoi Poet

I fell off, I use to be lyrical somewhat spiritual with the way that I rhymed.
Lines took hours, were far from sour because I took my time
Twitters too gripping, I got pulled right in, the continuous banter
I slowed with writing, but I'd be lying If I said I didn't enjoy laughter

"Dear Lisboa" By LeRoi Poet

Dear Lisboa, 

I came to you for a rest and you gave it to me, 
You supplied fresh seafood when I wss hungry, satisfying my sweet tooth, with your pastry, 
Allowed me to explore the vein like roads of your body,
Going deep in your caves, falling in love so deeply,
I relaxed in gardens, with your subtle sweet sea scent in the air,
As light breezes whispered latin in both of my ears...

A Mantra By LeRoi Poet

Football with friends on concrete car parks,
hitting whips, amber alarms tear through the dark,
Crack heads converge nightly at the same spot
Out of sight of blue lights, in shadows, flicking needle shots,

2015 Taught Me... By LeRoi

2015 taught me that being "too nice" is actually not good. 

When you are too nice, you allow people to push your buttons and step over once healthy boundaries; making excuses for their actual behaviour "Maybe its me, I'm too hard", going against your values, allowing the person to avoid dealing with your true feelings.

Dilla... By LeRoi Poet

No matter the weather, I can count on J Dilla,
to soothe my mind, I know he will never Dither,
Disappoint, thus letting me down, 
In a gloomy and glum December, in London town,
Instrumentals relax my inner being you see?
I become subdued with tranquillity,
Honestly, believe it or not, I leave this world,
Spiritually; to a place where Miss Pohitry can be heard,
Whispering gently, her voice massages my temples,
I resemble a mortar, Miss Pohitry the Pestle,
Grinding wisdom into my back muscles in small circles...

Yeah...  Miss P.
Work on me...
Right there...

losing my fingers, intertwined in her Afro hair
To be continued....

Moving Jessica by LeRoi Poet

Goodmorning, excuse me Miss, would you mind slowing down?
I've been seeing you, wandering this, specific part of town,
In the mornings, buying milk, hair bubbled in a ponytail,
My approach had to be smooth as silk, to get your name without fail,

Rhyme Methodology by LeRoi Poet

Theres a methodology, to writing rhymes,
Like a recipe for good food, it takes thyme,
Let it marinate, in your brain til your mouth salivates,
At the thought of serving up poems on lined plates.

Success, Venting 6 By LeRoi Poet

All I Want is to be successful,
But this life, it is rigged to be stressful.
Y'see, giving in is what they want,
But I wont, I will stay afloat, no time to front...

I don't believe in... By LeRoi Poet

I don't believe in the honeymoon phase 
Because I'm still infatuated with you, like the early days
I'm sorry if I became overprotective,  needy and clingy, 
I have to stay true to me, truth is I can't get enough of you, wifey,

Kendrick album venting By LeRoi Poet

I have listened to Kendricks album on repeat,
Every. Single. Day. For a  couple of weeks,
He's talking of something bleak,  but to me it's so sweet
Something different, something I can aspire to,
Something not fake, something real, true and tangible
The blacker the berry the deeper our roots,
But they've led us to  belive, a shade darker than cream is destined to lose,
So absurd, fuq what you heard, erase your mind of all that you've learned,
We are all equal in the eyes of Gxod as far as I'm concerned....

I Fell In Love [Growth] Part 4 of 4 By LeRoi Poet

I fell in love and I have no regrets,
I see now love is just another of life’s tests,
Full of elation and frustration let us not pretend,
And you BOTH have to be strong for it not to end,
Giving chances to your partner because mistakes happen,
And when you emerge from problems together, you’ll see they are Godsend.
