    I was ready to write a love poem
    brought on by how that
    white snowflake
    twinkled against your dark skin
    …in competition with your eyes

    I just knew I’d write a love poem
    in remembrance of
    the strength
    of your arms and the grip of
    …your hands at my waist

    I swore I’d write a love poem
    ode to the softness
    of your kiss…
    The slick of your tongue as
    it wet my lips
    …toyed with My vocal’s muscle

    My pen was posed to write a love poem
    But…
    my mind wandered to your thoughts inked out
    and those 5AM telephone calls
    received regardless of whatever we might be into
    (Those whispered conversations locked behind your bathroom door)
    And the knowledge that “best friends” may very well be
    …forever

    And so now my thoughts lay heavy with this
    And my heart’s beat has been slowed by this
    And my sensibility says it’s warned me of this
    And my spirit threatens to return to slumber to hide from this
    And my throat clenches at the thought of this
    And my cells’ warp speed has been reversed by this
    And my focus now must be changed because of this
    And the course I’ve tread is now altered by this
    And my…
    And my….

    My, my, my…

    I guess that…

    I was ready to write a love poem
    Based on a vision created by my imaginations eye…

    waste not ink
    on those who
    don't appreciate
    but let the wings of your heart
    bring you to one
    who bows in humble submission
    to your majesty
    they only call at 5am
    would be my soul to yours
    the only interruption
    would be to listen to the directives
    that our hearts and our passion would give
    go ahead and write your love poem
    let your heart flow
    that I may bask in its essence
    creating an appropriate response
    to the song that your soul now prepares to sing.
