A Poet People Should Know
Courtney PHOENIX White
In honor of the 17th Annual National Poetry Month, I am graciously yielding my blog space to Poets. For the balance of April I will run and post my new monthly feature highlighting some amazing poets, YoTrip Presents: “A Poet People Should Know “
Five Questions For A Poet People Should Know
Who are you as a Poet? Please share something about yourself and your business.
I AM… intuitively creatively,
Yours truly and literally…. THE… SHIT
I AM…. never the one you love always the one you left
But dear heart I am nobodys second best
I AM….genuinely essentially,
Caressmatically, infatically, certifiably
The infliction of desire and the FIRST… AID… KIT….
I AM…everything possibly and maybe plausibly
Sickingly, amazingly, strikingly, tastefully yummy
Emotionally and Educationally prepared no dummy
I AM…what you need motivationally, never inappropriately, obviously
Curvatiously, sexually, metaphorically, historically, classically, being me generally, non-egotistically
I AM…phenomenally, womanly, satisfyingly, intimately,
The one and only, don’t talk to me like I’m five or six lets just go FIVE..OR….SIXXX….
I AM…animalistically, seductively, passionately, erotically, voluptiously, sensually, romantically, work hard ethically, basically
I am the owner/CEO of Yume Ai Entertainment. Yume Ai (Dream Love in Japanese) is an all female all African American company offers basic entertainment services to the public such as photography, modeling, makeup, choreography, song writing, and styling. I am also an information manager for a company we have recently aligned with called Mxology 21 where we construct streamline event planning for social and corporate affairs. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I have always written and posted for feedback since 2005. I have been writing ever since I can remember. My diary was my first friend. I am definitely a busy woman but the train isn’t stopping any time soon.
What makes you a “Poet People Should Know”?
I am a the poet/author of over 125 mixed themed published poems. I have been posting since 2005. The Phoenix bird represents rebirth and the ability to rise from ash with new hope. Because of circumstances surrounding my personal life in 2005, the poet “Phoenix” was born. I am known for primarily for Erotica and have even been referred to as the new age “Zane” however my genres have expanded over the years. I strive to be the voice of women who are afraid of expressing themselves not only sexually but assertively. My greatest desire would be to “give confidence back to women”. I am currently working on her first novel entitled, ‘Anybody’s Somebody’ in which I depict women who long for love but instead avoids self-worth and life’s trials and tribulations; replacing it with their insatiable appetite for sex. That replacement only increased disappointment and struggle. My debut title will be released by FreedomInk Publishing, Fall 2013 via Oppidian.
When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?
I always put others before myself. It has always been a gift and a curse. It has gotten me to the lowest point in my life as well as the journey I am sharing with you now. I started off writing about my own personal issues and wants and needs sexually and emotionally. I started to encompass a “No Filter” persona and my audience immediately attached themselves to it. I am at the point where there is not a day that goes by that I am not called an inspiration. Women relate to me. Men are attracted to my raunchy slang.

How do you make it all happen?
A lot of prayer and asking for guidance led me on this journey. I work 13 hours a day and write on the weekends and whenever I can. I’m living the dream of a shy little girl who’s only goal in life was to be somebody beautiful and successful.
