Science has proven that the brain of someone in love looks a lot like the brain of someone on cocaine…
Nah for real I’m not making this up…
So…
It isn’t totally fiction when someone says being in love is like having an addiction
Like an addiction
To cocaine
Cocaine…
Cocaine acts on the pleasure centers of the brain by lowering the threshold at which they fire
Meaning you feel really good a lot quicker when you’re high or…
Being in love makes you feel really good a lot quicker like you’re high on…
You know…
Cocaine…
And whatever pain…
Whatever pain or aversion that would normally cause you to be hurting bothers you a lot less
You’re too in love with a person to be stressed 
Or vexed
So yes…
Love is far more complex than one ever thought it could be…
You see…
Dopamine is released
Along with norepinephrine 
From the ventral tagmental area of the brain
This not only causes sexual arousal
I’m sayin…
It gives you the motivation, caring, and desire to be with a person more and more…
Like a person that’s high wants… to get high more and more
You want them more and more
Just like an addiction…
But picture…
The mesolimbic dopamine system
The brain’s own reward system
Is stimulated by love
So love is perceived as a reward
Good lord
Talk about a trophy wife…
Well… not quite
But like…
Oxytocin…?
Oxytocin is also released from the nucleus accumbens 
This causes us to be attached or bonded to the ones we love…
Like a dope fiend is attached to the drug they love… 
But… if you think that’s crazy…
Maybe you should take a look and see
How some people in love have low levels of serotonin
Similar to those with OCD
Possibly… 
Explaining the obsession and infatuation during the early stages of love… 
We literally be…
Crazy in love…
Or… drunk in love…
If I do say so myself… 
But… back to this drug 
I mean… love
That releases endorphins similar to the opiates…
 It’s appropriate 
To say it gets rid of inhibitions
Giving you that feel-good feeling
For decades to come
Toss in some physiological and psychological elements
And you’re sure to be strung… 
Out…
On love…
What a wonderful feeling…

She brings light to my dark twisted fantasies…
Can’t even call her rare
There’s no one like her…
She’s the filament to my light bulb 
Just try turning on a light without one and see what I mean… 
I mean… I had dreams before her…
Plans…
Goals and shit…
Now she’s in my dreams…
Plans…
Goals and shit…
She straight Fred Kruger’d my future
But no nightmares
This the type of shit you get used to
I look forward to falling asleep next to her…
My nigga
She got me writing love poems about somebody that’s real
And if she isn’t real it’s real lucid
I dig her cuz she fluid…
Fitting well into the cracks of my once broken heart thought to be ruined…
Peep the angle it’s congruent
Equal no matter which direction we be facing
Makes me glad I never became complacent 
Settling for anything
Or settling for less
When the best was a nice sundress away
From this moon’s light
Like…
I be staring at her sometimes…
Be wanting to tap random strangers
And be like… look… damn she fine…
Was slim when I met her
Now ever picture she look thicker…
But picture
Her mind is thicker than water
I really meant deeper
Well I really didn’t mean either…
I just didn’t want to seem shallow
Either way… 
Mind, body, and soul
Until the day I meet the gravel
After…
All those love wars
It’s nice to come home to the victor of the battles…

Good Morning Beautiful People… Can I share another #nationalpoetrymonth testimony with y’all? Cool… Exactly a year ago today I lost my “day job” that I refused to quit. I couldn’t really process getting fired at the time because I had a performance that night and I was being flown out to Sacramento California to perform that weekend… When it finally hit me, “what and the hell am I going to do?” I had a major anxiety attack. No one knows this. I was thinking I has $800 rent, car insurance, I needed to eat, cell phone bills, gas, etc… Of course I went into “fight or flight” mode. Instead of running away from what I always wanted I chose to fight for what I really wanted(and I’m still fighting cuz I’m not balling AT ALL, please don’t let popularity fool you) 
Needless to say I chose to walk the path God chose for me cuz you can’t really call what I’m doing a dream. My dream was to be a doctor. A neurologist to be exact. I’ve always been passionate about writing. At the time of my separation I already had 6 books published and 3 albums. God knew I was never going to take that leap of faith to quit so the higher power stepped in and did some unexplainable things and turned me into the direction I am headed towards now in this season of my life. 
I’m now one of the many leaders in the #spokenword community in my hometown of New Orleans. I host my own weekly. I organize several other large spoken word events. I’m getting booked all over the world. (Got my first international Gig coming up in September). I’m working with that youth of New Orleans. And while I’m not that doctor I always dreamed of being. I’m healing people and helping people with my words and if not my words my actions inspired by my words. Which are very powerful and comes from no other than God. This is #Godsworknotmines

Which brings me to TONIGHT! I’ll be in Pensacola, FL celebrating my one year anniversary of spiritual freedom on stage at Deep Water City Lounge… ✊
