About Me

Let's start with a short but detailed introduction.

My name is actually Christella. Well, Christella Merveille if we are being technical. Christella means Christ is here and Merveille is the french word for marvelous or wonderful depending on your context of the word.

I am a twenty eight year old classy but complexed female. I am a woman of many gifts (glory be to God for entrusting me with them) but on this platform we will only discuss poetry.

I started writing and fell in love with it at a young age. Even won my very first poetry award in the second grade and back then I told myself I would be an author or writer one day. Since then, I have written poems here and there but never shared them. After two years of not writing I found pages and pages of all my poetry.

To make use of the art I once cherished so much I have dedicated this platform for all things poetry.

Loved

How strange it is to be loved by you.
You are like the sunshine while the clouds are blue.

How oddly fair it is and I know it is true.
I never have to ask you to do the things you do.

How soothing and cooling it is to be your boo.
The one you adore and find fair and cute.

It is like a dream that never stops coming true.
My dear, when you ask, I will say I do.

Oh, how strange it is to be chosen by you.
You could have anyone and we know it is true.

Yet, you choose me and I believe it too.
The faithfulness od a man whose heart is true.

How strange, yet satisfying it is to be loved by you.

Poem of the Week

Exhale

She's been longing to exhale.
She hasn't had a full breath in a while.
Can't you tell,
By the worry in her eyes ?
Or the brokenness in her tone?
She's been longing to exhale.

She inhaled your words
As hurtful as they were
As damaging as they were
As discouraging as they were

She inhaled your love
As amazing as it was
As temporary as it was
As dangerous as it was
As toxic as it was

She inhaled your pain
And it wasn't even hers to take in.

Shes been longing to exhale.
She hasn't had a full breath in a while.

Instead shes been inhaling
Inhaling all the hate
The sleepless nights
The restless days
Shes been inhaling.
The judgement of society
The never ending shame of being a woman

Shes been inhaling.
She's hurting
She's been throbbing.
She's hurting.
She's damaged.
She's broken.
She's slightly defeated.

So she's been sitting here.
Taking it all in, inhaling.
While she's been longing to exhale.
She hasn't had a full breath in a while.

Imperfection

Perfectly imperfect
Filled with mistakes
Perfectly imperfect
Always makes mistakes

Perfectly imperfect
Drawn to flaws
Perfectly imperfect
Yet I still love myself
Flaws and all.

P A R A D I S E

I want to be at ease
I want a taste of freedom
To be somewhere lost deep in my mind
Sitting on the shore at the edge of the sea

Watching the sunset
With the sound of silence behind me

Paradise is my perspective
The only thing that brings me peace

I want to be at ease
I want a taste of freedom
Somewhere deep in my mind
Sitting on the shore at the edge of the sea

Leaving everything B E H I N D me.

Time

Things take time.
Oh, the time t h i n g s take.

Things take time.
Hold it together, try not to b r e a k.

Things take time.
Oh, the time t h i n g s take.

Her turn, his turn.
Your turn, God made you w a i t.

You're too hard on yourself.
Too delicate to be rough on.

Taking longer than most does not mean
You won't make the h o n o r roll.

Things take time.
Oh, the time t h i n g s take.

Where is she?

I buried the old me along with my fears.
They looked for her and looked
But she is no longer here.

I buried the old me along with my tears.
They taunted her, oh how they mocked her
But she is no longer here.

I buried the old me to prance like deers.
They saw her joy and how her darkness disappeared.
I'm not sorry, the old me is no longer here.

I buried the old me along with my fears.
They clapped for her and made her dark cloud disappear.
I'm proud to say this with my chin up!
The old me is no longer here.

Changed me

You changed me you know.
I developed a certaint inner glow.

You showed me right from wrong.
You even taught me to say no.

Oh how I wondered how I would survive the winters with out you.

I don't see myself the same anymore.
I don't even break down the same.

I just get back up and keep trying.

You changed me you know.
I developed a certaint inner glow.

Now I know when to stay and when to go.

Game Over

I played that man like a fiddle
He tried to play a game and lost
How did she do that?
Someone please solve this riddle

Charming snakes like I am one
I really thought this would be more fun

Took a shot to the head by his own gun
I really thought this would be more fun

As soon as he realized I had to run
I know he cannot catch me
He forgot that I wasn't the one

To be played with that is
Boy grow up we aren't kids

I played that man like a fiddle
He tried to play a game and lost
How did she do that?
Someone please solve this riddle

Mind Games

Back and fourth
Forward and back
Nobody likes to seesaw like that

Take it or leave it
Give it back
Its mine, its mine
I want it back

Tug of war
Or he'll get bored
He doesn't do consistency
And that is that!!!

Moving back and fourth
Forward and back
Nobody likes to seesaw like that

A swing is my thing
Would even prefer a slide
I'll even suggest a glide
Instead of taking you back

No play ground for me
I rather be free
Freedom, oh sweet freedom
I'd rather run away
Then play a game like that

Dream On

Dream on
Dream strong
You are not always wrong

If when you are right
They fight you or strike

It means they want the dream to die

Do not give up
Stand strong and fight

You have a right to dream
And do everything to keep your dream alive

So dream on
Dream strong
Be fearless

Spread your wings
And take flight

OH HEY, FOR BEST VIEWING, YOU'LL NEED TO TURN YOUR PHONE
