Everything just kept going, and going and going
And even when you laughed, you cried
And even when you were sad you were really happy
Because you were here
Cause everywhere I go
Everything I see
I just hope you understand
And I hope you understand, I hope you understand
We were never friends
And I hope you understand now
Love me better, kiss me back, listen more
"Come sleep with me: we won’t make love. Love will make us."
So is this a compliment or what? At least I’m “breathtaking.”
i call this piece "skressington"
that moment someone you follow is on fuck yeah black men..
"All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time."
what i would give
to be in your bed
under the covers
no not sex
but just cuddling
And you holding me tight
and just letting go
An excerpt from my ARTIST STATEMENT for RECONNECTED
Three years ago I embarked on a journey to get better acquainted with the Dominican Republic, the country where my parents were born. Prior to this time I had intentionally avoided visiting for five years because I didn’t enjoy my visits. There was a certain level of disappointment & isolation I felt on my visits and that discomfort made not want to go for awhile. But this time around I was determined to go with a new attitude and open mind.

I wish I lived in New York to go see this. I’m a huge fan of Peralta. I own one of his shirts and I wish I owned all of them! Also he just seems like a really cool dude I would love to know! He inspires me to get my business up and moving! One day man, one day.
