    Poetry is missed.
    Speeding off w/ a bilboard attached to it's side.
    Carrying passengers , adversaries and the like.

    I woke up late today,
    daylight savings time but it doesn't balance my checkbook.
    The nextlook was my eyes watching Poetry leaving.
    Speeding off w/ a bilboard attached to it's side.

    I may not finish this poem, but is it okay to post it ?
    People baked in the sun picking wheat for bread,
    is it okay to toast it ?
    I was also late to work last week
    and my boss asked " Do you wanna lose your job ? "
    I lied and sighed " no. " - do you think she noticed ?

    In my piscean ways I try to balance the scales...
    " Okay , let me read all of yall's recent posts
    and THEN I'll post again "
    tit for tat.
    thisforthat.
    showmeyoursandiwillshowyoumind. sho' don't mind.

    But the wheels are greased to heavily,
    and the transmission slips
    and I missed poetry sliding through fingertips
    falling on all fours , breaking into pieces,
    breaking into full stride down I75
    and I ...
    should've woke up earlier.


    In my piscean ways I try to tip the scales ...
    " Okay, I can't find any interesting women my age in toledo
    to connect/bond/share/love with ..."
    I wonder what Ubzorbshun is like
    I wonder what Diva is like
    I wonder what 8thwonder is like
    I wonder what maple/n2ursoul/princessblack is like
    knowing that Afri, Alyce , and GA are too old for me
    I wonder what LIKE is like...

    Life is like a box of chocolates...
    nicely wrapped sweet nothings that rot your teeth
    so you spend all morning trying to speak,
    and poetry is missed.


    Thinking " maan, you've wrote too much already, go home "
    but I need to read my big bro Blak's latest piece
    I wanna check out J'hiah,Reason and thepoetsean's
    latest piece -
    I hate to sleep,
    my every waking moment is spent waking moments
    to ask them why the hell they missed the poetry.

    the summer internship ad agency far away place
    the $400 needed to repair car for both my jobs
    the success in music/etc. to give money and jobskissass
    the overdue loveofmylife not knowing what it's like
    to hear a woman speak TRUTH
    the time to inhale the poetry i missed
    speeding off with a bilboard attached to it's side
    carrying friends,executives,dignitaries,villagers
    -adversaries, thespians and the like...
    and the survey says....

    __________________________________________________________


    PLEASE noone take offense to this,
    hope i didn't mention any body's girlfriend/wife
    or somethin -
    AS always , this is me venting -
    hope any one caught in the crossfire understands.
    NO offense yo,
    and PLEASE don't think that I'm crazy !!! - lol.

    It is a high priority for me to
    read what you GUYS ( my peeps ) have written,
    but it comes sooo fast -
    I wanna take a day to get down with it,
    but my days leave my grasp before i
    realize I have them - so busy being busy,
    and nothing gets accomplished , you know ?

    Life is God,love,spirit,family and fulfilling soul desires-
    where did Payroll,insurance,and credit checks
    come into play ??
    these are My thoughts -we all just want to
    play outside,in the sun, in the grass. until it's time for dinner.


    ps..> " Life is like a box of chocolates "
    is NOT MY LINE, it's from Forrest GUMP -

    {hyp frequently uses lines/ideas from
    Prince,Jay-Z,common,Erykah etc.
    no plaigarism, just credit and inspiration )

    And the "air" sign...

    Libra is here to balance the scales of
    your piscean ways... and I also wanted
    to say...I appreciated getting to know
    a little of you from reading this prose
    you shook down from your proverbial
    clothes; and it has truly made my morning
    rich and full... Now I am glad to know
    that I'm not alone in saying that I thrive
    in reading pieces of my family here in
    this room full of talented sistahs and
    brothas...

    Go in peace today, brotha for your work
    here is well received... no offense was
    'taken'... nor am I!!

    Much :heart: for your undressed soul...

    HYPNOTIZE....

    baby!... i always smile when i read you!!

    i am almost offended at being called old... or too
    old for you... ****! i'm only 30 and if Stella can
    get her groove back... well.. then... hey!! :lol:

    seriously though... you are sooo talented & i hate
    to see you stressed & unable to do the things you
    really enjoy... like reading your peeps! take a
    "Hynotize Day"... at least once a week! imma witness...
    it helps to take a whole 24 hrs to just do what YOU
    want to do... when YOU want to do it... even if it's
    nothing at all... just think about it!!

    ForevaLovinYou&FeelinYourFlow...

    LOL! - I dunno about that,
    but that's for sure Rich, these lady poets
    are interesting -
    and where I live an interesting/artistic/thoughtful
    and expressive woman is a rarity near extinction.
