I wish my life was as perfect

as that egg shell white umbrella

complements the perfectly placed

plants, Oh how I wish I could

perfectly place people in

my life to play perfect

father roles or perfect

best-friend roles but if that was to

happen all of the plants would be cracked and

jiggered and the eggshell white

umbrella splattered with blood

due to the constant battle with broken people.

Nice view.


Green Green Grass still turns brown

I thought I found peace in you

like the smell of fresh cut grass

under a white picket fence

on a summer day in one

of those all american towns

where ice cream trucks

summons kids to scream for joy

but you were not that

not that green green grass

on the other side

more like turf

hiding the ugliness

of the bare ground.


Restart Error

My screen is stuck,

after countless times of restarting

an error message appears

“cut the chords”

So, I threw it out window

and never looked back.




My name is Nyasia and I’m a recent college graduate from SUNY Oswego. I recently came back from London having the honor to study young adult literature and poetry. I’m a native of Harlem but travel back and forth to Maryland as I love southern hospitality. I am doing a half marathon so I can keep the creative juices flowing while I apply for countless jobs. As I consider myself a poet it’s always important to push yourself to write even when you don’t want to. For me, the marathon¬†will keep me on my toes. I have a passion for cooking and looking forward to creating a funky cooking blog/vlog for college students and young professionals. I also have a passion for singing and writing¬†songs. I hope to join a band in New York or create my own as a hobby. Good Luck to you all!
