    It’s a faint feeling
    enough of it though lingers,
    To remind me quietly
    once it was here,
    Now without it’s presence,
    I sleep with Two Comforters
    during the cold nights,
    Or I suffer to wake up
    with Cold Toes in the morning,
    When it was in my life
    this problem was never an issue,
    That Black Love….
    More like the Black Ice
    you never saw coming,
    Though once you’re on it
    you know its real,
    Keeping me warm,
    The flava of Mocha Supreme
    mixed like in my Hot Chocolate,
    Don’t drink coffee
    just for that simple fact of reason,
    Cause the residual effect to me
    makes me too jumpy plus uptight,
    Her brown skin in memory
    was the vision of Chocolate
    laid back forever just smooth,
    Mental Intellect
    cruising with Sophisticated Progression,
    Carrying the history
    all plus 400 years worth
    of our Culture’s Oppression,
    Even the footnotes
    filled with the Brother’s
    who could not love their Mother’s,
    So how could they ever
    know your value
    to in turn appreciate your Black Love,
    A body with figure so deadly
    to false prophets
    like the Middle Passage,
    But one you travel in reverse,
    Knowledge known
    to the one she anoints,
    Navigating her body
    was like Euphoria,
    The Prodigal Brother’s & Sista’s
    going home,
    Sailing from the Omega
    back to the Alpha,
    Her feminine essence
    with all its abundant riches
    represented the Mother Land,
    We made Love
    multiple times a day
    just so I could catch
    the Sensual Scent
    every time she left afterwards,
    Smelling like
    Sweet Royal Egyptian Musk,
    Where the temperature
    because of her presence,
    Never dropped below
    12 Noon in the Nubian Dessert,
    Now seemingly seasons away
    in another lifetime,
    All I have are distant fading reminders,
    Cause I sleep now
    with Two Comforters
    during the cold nights,
    Or I suffer to wake up
    with Cold Toes in the morning.
    :yo:

    I think what your asking is what is worse, the memory of what's gone, or waking up cold, but without the pain of what was. If this is the case, I choose the comforters, because I think those memories linger no matter what, and I hate cold toes just as much as the next person....Great piece, so I decided to rerun it.
