    she reached up
    and grabbed the wind
    tattooed her name on it's being
    and sent it to find me
    that's been our history

    apart but never apart
    in the dark but never in the dark
    lonely but never alone

    we've spent nights together
    impaling our souls with primal screams
    creating primal scenes of lovemaking
    ...in an organic way
    the kind you could wrap in a zig zag
    and get three kinds of high...

    naturally...

    we've spent songs together
    writing each other's verse beyond
    our meaning/beyond this third rock
    from the sun/into space to create space
    for our next lifetime...

    together...

    we've spent days
    just thinking of all the possibilities
    she and I could become

    one...meld ourselves into a spiritual/
    mental/emotional wonder that can't be
    seen with the naked eye...

    but has to be felt/when tears just won't do

    ...the beauty of your mind should be framed, sculpted, chiseled, recorded...
    (and whatever form of multi-media possible) and placed in an art gallery
    for all to see...

    Your work...amazes me and that stanza, what can I say---> :bowdown:

    You always bring it metaphysically...

    The depths of this simply cannot be charted, this piece was saturated in an endless flow of love. Truly awesome poet.

    It's so good to have you back droping the dope...I have missed your poetic pen...welcome back poet.
    And just as this piece is "tear-less" ...it's "speech-less" as well. There are certain moments...even the heart can't touch, this piece reveals that moment.
    again, welcome home poet.

    Fam,

    Thank you all for the wonderful replies. I'm just knocking a little rust off and resettling back into my room. It's good to be back.

    peace, love, and words

    your brother blak
