    I fell in love and she mugged me
    Stole a brothers heart
    Told me that she loved me
    Showed me in the dark.

    A warm and accepting embrace
    A soft touch of to the lips
    While caressing my face.

    Had me lost in her essence
    Brother seeking escape
    In love ... Clouds ... Judgment
    Leaped out on Faith.

    Only to be broken by the tokens of Fate
    To know she loved but wasn’t in love
    In much the same way.

    For in the day that she realized my state
    Did she take my love for granted
    And cause a brother to panic.

    Nonetheless, I say she did it all with grace
    Placed my heart on a shelf
    Like a trophy in its case.

    Holding me close while at bay
    I suppose—
    I’m her best kept secret ...Never exposed.​

    To find out that the intensity of your love isn't returned, is quite painful, I know. Well expressed, poet, I felt your heart in this.

    this is a relative issue in relationships world-wide.
    i'll be looking forward to a poem about mending broken hearts.
    HMMMMMM... I think i'll post that one now.

    The Love Doctor

    Love leaves levees between Bush and Black people
    a lop-sided leap of faith cannot cushion the impact either

    can i collide gracefully and end up hymned up in your arms
    hide the harm channel the charm to only you

    computer love glitched up cardio- stitched up
    give me some surgical glue i'll patch up a verse or two

    and deliver my words to you
    vertical alignment disconnected
    emergency seat ejected pull the parachute
    glide inside after a rough ride

    don't forget to "hide the harm"
    Turn off that David Letterman and Jay Leno
    Turn on some Luther Gerald and Barry
    i don't care if you're smooth or hairy

    we are two consenting adults, let's get married
    "i do" will you do me baby let's do this daily
    does a body good like they say dairy
    i'll be your gabriel, you be my mary

    but, break up with joseph first
    my hunger to follow the divine law
    is greater than my thirst
    someone told me i would eat those words
    and i said, "until my tummy bursts!"

    and i'll scream in pain insane not in vain
    to a name that always works

    her name, your name, we came to her earth
    now i've come to give you birth
    like grass from the dirt

    like jazz calms the hurt
    my passion and your urge

    a woman's worth is more than gold
    more than rock, more than roll
    more than profit made from souls sold

    i remove my artificial sole
    i let my crown grow, i bet the whole town knows
    your pretty round, brown mound
    beneath that gown i owe

    more than a massage
    more than a corsage
    more than a masteriece or collage

    i o u life and death sight and breath
    this has been a test...

    by the emergency broadcasting system
    you may now return to your regular program
    you may now kiss the bride
