Hey Girl Hey! 

I'm Javonne Crumby, creator of Lesbionyx-- A space for queer women of color. As a Black woman who loves women, I grew tired of the lack of representation and resources for women like me. So I created a platform for us and by us, because no one tells our stories like us! 

'The Message': A Poem by Javonne Crumby

'The Message': A Poem by Javonne Crumby

Erasing the message
but not the feelings
Erasing the message
but not the memories
Erasing the message
but not the pain
The message is
'I miss you'
The message is
'I love you'
The message is
'I hate you'
The message is
'I hate myself'
For letting you in
For letting win
For choosing you
For losing you
For thinking you were different
For the good times we had
For all the time I wasted
For constantly wondering
what was real
what was fake
For not feeling
good enough
funny enough
pretty enough
smart enough
The message is
'my love wasn't enough'
I'm rewriting the message
and starting anew
