    “Bag of Tricks”

    Do I dance in and out of your dreams?
    Leave your heart panting with desire
    Feeling uncertain and sometimes lost
    And trying to re-create the magic
    In a stranger’s arms, in their kiss
    In different late night scenarios
    In somewhat meaningless couplings
    Only meant to please the body
    And not the complexities of your mind

    Do I wander in and out of your thoughts?
    Taking control when you’re driving alone
    Looking at the empty seat beside you
    Remembering how my hand felt
    Massaging the back of your neck
    Remembering how your hand felt
    Resting lightly on my thigh
    Remembering how my hands breathed life
    About your deliciously flirting eyes onto paper
    Using pen and pencil and keyboard
    As the delicate instruments designed
    To tell the world
    About a love supremely perfect
    And even in it’s height of discord
    It still glowed brighter
    Than any story ever told
    About the attraction of opposites
    And the attractions in them
    That was too strong to stop
    The attraction of different attractions

    Do I still have you making those wishes?
    That no one hears but you
    Not wanting to seem weak or pathetic or sad
    Laboring under the guise of logical control
    Until alone and feeling this feeling
    Of not really feeling someone else
    Like you felt him
    Like he felt you
    Like you felt each other
    When you were not even physically feeling
    Each other up but just sitting and reflecting
    Passing information by way of thoughts
    Into souls that bled shivers
    Divinely sweet and sour at the same time

    Do I stop you in the middle of sentences?
    And be what was and is the last thing
    That expressed in myriad expressions
    That crazy out of control taste of ecstasy
    Better than any conceived fantasy
    That crept into your musings of hot cravings
    Cravings that are secretly kept
    And stored for those moments
    When the do I’s and will I’s and can i’s
    Have finally lost all their magic
    Finally revealed that they never held any magic
    Other than the magic you lovingly gave
    That you were willing to pull from him
    From him alone
    And his imaginative bag of tricks...hookup

    It’s official… :spinstar:

    This is the hottest, most sensational, incredible, alluring, phenomenal, awe inspiring, tantalizing, arresting, prolific, climatic, sudden, poignant…work of art on this form, (In my humble opinion :coffee: )

    Thank you…I love it

    As I read this again…I thought about the title and then I looked at the headers of each stanza and again…I was mesmerized…and inspired to respond in flow...which hopefully, I will finish soon!

    Brother…I’m a fan(atic) :look: , gonna take this piece and frame it!

    Much love to you,
    Sage
