    29 times I've been here before
    ...the impass at the edge of the
    river's corridor

    29 lives instead of a feline's 9

    29 promises broken at the
    same~****~time

    29 divided by 2, didn't mathematically
    equal ME and You

    29 ways I said, "I Love"...
    but all the while I intentionally
    stopped short of the U

    29 - 9= 20 letters in your birth
    name...which I wrote 29 times
    to cover up my pain

    Separating 29 points on this continuum

    ...for sympathetic nervous system #29

    29 seconds between the last moments spent
    when I thought of you and I

    29 was the distance in miles that I cried

    29 rhythmless beats as my
    heart skipped rope in vain

    29 foreign languages I spoke when I cursed
    your name

    29 occasions when I knew you lied

    29 was the number designed to cooperate
    with 32;
    ...but you acted as though you were unfamiliar
    with what "you, I, we, us" was pertaining to...

    29 kisses from me to you

    29 scribes I wrote were meant for us two

    29 perchances I had given

    29 multiple choices were made

    29 memories were kept in my mid-brain

    29 pardons for mistakes that you've made

    29 jagged edges; you've cut out my heart

    29 love songs you stole from my chest

    29 x's empty is how you left me

    29 ironies when you said you cared about me

    29 drownings in your open sea

    29 laughs we've shared ~ hysterically

    29 times the patience I would have
    given you if I'd have known you'd be fair

    29 executions I've undergone waiting
    for your reciprocity

    29 conclusions that included you

    29 years of my life I spent readying myself,
    preparing to meet you and ...
    I've synchronically organized these linguistics
    to fit the 'let down of the century'
    when you decided to say you weren't quite
    ready to love me

    So how now do I compensate for what is
    considered a waste of that which is
    essential --- TIME ---

    All of this hurt I felt simultaneously at the age of 29...

    Lawd ha'mersaye....

    this is tight-ness

    mah sustuh, ~ seal this piece in a time capsule and pull it out again at 49....some scribes are like living ~breathing organisms, expanding, changing, re-arranging...a masterpiece in progress; the work of our lifetimes.

    feel me

    Sista Alyce~

    You seem to always know the right things
    to say to cheer a sista-frynd up when my days
    turn from cheery red to dull blue...
    for this sis' I say, "Thanks"...!!
