inflorescence is a poetry collection divided into six parts: seedling, blossom, drought, pruning, flourish, and rebirth.
It is the process of flowering. the process of becoming more.”
It is a collection of poems, a timeline from my childhood to now. It is honest, it is raw, and it is my life in verses and rhyme.
“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.
Available on Amazon!

This isn’t love (love does not take from you)- 9/15/2020 you say this is love, tears mingling with your pleas. skin pale, teeth rotting from decay; how can you call this love when it drains you? robs you of joy and leaves you with nothing but scraps to keep warm? you deserve a feast […]Read More
