    you are beautiful!

    sure, there are times when you feel isolated and alone
    times when you feel
    the pressure from the world's boot
    on your neck is simply too great
    times when you feel
    your spirit is tissue paper thin
    and it can't generate enough energy
    to allow you to rise up on your feet alone
    times when you feel
    comfort only comes
    after you crack the government seal
    on a bottle of jack
    times when you feel
    misunderstood, unappreciated and unloved

    but loved one
    please know that you are not alone
    for i am forever with you
    right there in your heart
    with my head on a pillow
    dreaming of the many ways
    you are so very necessary

    and during those times
    when great darkness envelopes you
    take my hand and climb upon my shoulders
    steady and balance yourself
    let me carry all the weight for you
    as i uplift you to the sun
    where it's nourishing and warming light can penetrate
    through your skin to shine on your damaged spirit
    and begin to replenish it

    beloved one,
    rejuvenate your life force with my love
    until you can do it for yourself again

    Love,
    your sister

    My Sistah…of the written word realm
    Thank you,
    For your generosity and selflessness
    And concern for my happiness
    And…bless your efforts to uplift me
    Through your written word ministry
    Ensuring that I not be alone
    …not feel alone
    That I might stand on my own
    Let us crack that government seal
    Not on Jack but let the champagne spill
    …its bubbly tickling the ugly out of our musings
    Let us never be found…abusing
    The gifts of love granted us
    Between us
    Allowing us to trade barbs like this
    Forever ending with the kissssss
    Of us.
    Thank you, My Sistah

    Thank you, James.
    Your support of me
    is incredibly uplifting
    and helps me forge forward
    even when I don't think
    I have the energy, desire
    or talent to do so.

    The juxtaposition of hearts is the stock and trade of a poet. You, dear poet, exemplify that fact. Your words speak volumes.

    Dear loved one

    i am right here.
    i have not moved an inch
    you know i hear and feel you
    and if it's my love you need
    take all of it
    every drop
    ingest it
    let it fill you up
    and coat your insides
    i only pray it's enough
    to give you the strength
    to begin to climb up out that muck

    Love,
    you know exactly who i am
