“when i imagined you, i made you taller, broader, louder. i made you with wings, with hair to your waist, breasts round and soft. i made you me. i made you greater. i lost faith in your ability to please me, so instead i dreamed of me.”
inflorescence is a poetry collection divided into six parts: seedling, blossom, drought, pruning, flourish, and rebirth. the process of flowering. the process of becoming more.
“it’s the night-bloomers that shine so brightly against the backdrop of black and swaths of mystique. wound with layers of sensuality and dark passions, it’s the ones who tempt the boundaries of blasphemy in exchange of one pure, unadulterated breath, that stain the earth with desolation and broken olive branches.”
night-bloomer is a dark and lush poetry collection divided into seven chapters: new moon, crescent, waxing gibbous, full moon, wolf moon, waning, and full cycle. each poem bursting with vivid language and raw and honest emotions, Mecca-Amirah’s latest installment explores topics like relationships, betrayal, depression, and self-love.
With Mecca-Amirah’s latest poetry collection Daydreamer, she invites her readers along on her journey to find clarity. Annotated by the ‘Daydreamer’, each of the seven chapters: Whimsy, Stargazer, Euphoria, Lost, Part II, Found, and Clarity are dedicated to the steps on how to reach self-fulfillment. A blend of raw honesty and fierce vulnerability, Mecca-Amirah demonstrates her growth as a writer with her visceral third project.
