I thank all my readers for the love they have shown to my guest writers.  This short piece is from a very friend of mine.  She goes by the name of Shadine Ménard.  This beautiful young lady is a great asset to her community.  Shadine Ménard was a Fashion & Beauty Editorial Assistant at Vibe and Vibe Vixen. A gig as Contributing Editor at iStyle followed as well as an anonymous sex diarist for New York Magazine. She now contributes Shine Beauty Culture and KompaMagazine.com.

A native New Yorker, Shadine loves her parents’ native Haiti and became the founder of HIP: Haitian International Pulse Magazine in 2008. She recently finished collaborating on an earthquake guide for students in Haiti and is presently working on HIP’s blog. www.facebook.com/HIPmagazine www.twitter.com/ShadineM http://live.shinebeautyculture.com


For so long

I’ve felt I had to pull

the strings

tighter and tighter

Now the dam’s been broken

Blood, sweat, defenses and tears

all streaming, meddling

I’m left with no rope


friend or foe

love or crush

Somehow there is your voice

    • Mr. Prodg

      I agree, her piece is very powerful…a woman who’s leaving it all on the tbl…

    • ShadineM

      Thank you :)

  • Raymond Nelson

    Beautiful poem. Very rich in imagery with a most profound message.

    • ShadineM

      Thank you Raymond. The message here doesn’t have to be just one thing. Like I said sometimes it can be a friend or a foe or both or the unknown that takes us to different answers :)

  • Raymond Nelson

    Beautiful poem with powerful imagery and a most impactful message.

  • Jean Hugues

    This a good shot, Sha. Keep on charming us with your brilliant imagination.

    • ShadineM

      Hugues, thank you for coming online (I know it’s uncommon for you) and commenting! Glad to know you like it.

  • Veta

    That quickly, these lines took me somewhere. I’m not sure if I was a visitor of your emotions or my own that I’ve never been aware of!! Keep me posted as to wherever your writings travel Sha. :-)

  • ShadineM

    Thank you. I’m happy you (the readers) like it. Sometimes no matter how much we want to think a situation to death all we can do is FEEL which is what I let take over while writing Untitled.
    @Veta: If it can take you through your own journey… that’s a great compliment. Thanks.
