“Untitled : 6/13/2020” by Cortney Joseph

I think of you, dream of you, wonder where you are right now.   I turn in circles, looking for you at every corner, wonder when will be the moment you walk in.   I miss you, and I need you, hoping that I cross your mind as each day passes.   I dream ofContinue reading ““Untitled : 6/13/2020” by Cortney Joseph”

“Doin’ Wrong” by Cortney Joseph

In secrecy we meet, dangerously aware of the troubles we greet. Carelessly giving in to temptation week after week.   To others we belong, but the feelings shared between us are far too strong. We can’t let go, no matter that we both know this life we lead is wrong.

“It’s Been” by Cortney Joseph

I find it hard to put into words the changes I’ve felt come over me.   It’s been scary, but amazing. It’s been stressful, but empowering.   It’s been bubbling within my mind and soul, pushing a stronger and wiser woman to the top.   It’s been calming. It’s been peaceful.   It’s been God.

Being a poet, I figured that eventually it would only make sense for me to veer into YouTube with videos of my own. I beganContinue reading “I Need To Get Back Into It.”

“I Believed” by Cortney Joseph

All because I believed I could, I flew far beyond my wildest dreams, And conquered a world I’d once feared.   All because I believed I could, I pushed myself far beyond my limits, And paved a way for me to Exceed far beyond my imagination.   I believed I could, And I did.
