    I think we are all searching.
    For what you ask?

    For the things that make us happy.
    For the things that make us feel complete.
    For the moments that make us laugh

    For consuming moments in time we need to compete.
    It’s a fight. A struggle
    Worth every bit of the pain.

    Fractions of moments
    Brain tiring moments
    Heart consumed moments in each others arms.

    For painful moments is time with you
    It is all that you’re giving now

    I have seen another side of you.
    There are glimpses
    You can’t hide them
    You are searching too.

    So quiet for a moment
    Let me show you something different
    Trust me for a moment
    Let me show you what to do

    WORDS.. only words

    When I kiss you
    I want to take you deep

    I feel it running
    I turn on all my sensitivity
    From my head to my feet

    I love poetry

    For words have no chains
    They allow me to break the barrier of any subject matter
    Words help me ease the pain

    No one can stop a word from being spoken
    No one can deny they were never said
    No one can slow the inevitable attraction to words
    Nor deny them when they are heard

    Sometimes the words are not understood
    May be it’s the walls you put up that matters

    I said it, I know you heard it
    Now it’s up to you

    Don’t you know your lines?
    In this dance
    In this play we call our lives

    I know mine
    I say them to you
    You give the same action
    Reaction all the time
    Every time

    That is frustrating
    I’m not mad
    I’m disappointed
    Big difference!

    I gave you too much credit when I let you into my life
    I see you have what it takes
    To keep up with how fast I want to flow
    I saw you have ability
    I hardly see around me any more

    I know you have what it takes to understand

    Poetry has no strings
    Words have no bounds
    Only those

    CENSORED

    Attempts of man to put on things

    And because I love poetry
    I can love the world

    Because I love poetry
    I write
    I fight
    I strive and cry
    For your words mean the world to me

    Poetry

    For your all I have until I die.

    Take back my heart

    Taking back my heart
    Getting over you for good

    Yes! Sometimes I don’t get it right
    Sometimes not doing what I should

    Get over you
    I can’t
    I’m missing you badly.

    I’m not happy without you
    I am not happy with what I am going thru
    Because I love you madly.

    Why? Do I have to let you go?
    Because of a misunderstanding
    I feel like a drunken gambler
    One more pull of the one hand bandit will give me back my money

    Now I have to learn to cope and understand
    Stand back take another view
    Work on my approach
    Before I play my hand

    If I do this right there may be a chance
    I could win you back
    Have you again
    I could be yours again
    I’ll stand now!

    Then the fear of failure sets in
    I say it means nothing to me
    I make up excuses
    Think of all of the abuses
    Exaggerate a few

    I am making excuses
    Putting up defenses
    In case
    It doesn’t work out with you

    I am nothing without you by my side
    Instead of loving you
    I catch myself making excuses

    I have to love you back somehow
    In the face of this world
    I’ll get you back
    I need you as my girl

    My friends tried to give me advice

    Right!

    I see how they are unfulfilled

    They say things like
    I don’t mean anything to you

    That I should get over you they said
    I never loved you and they see
    How confused and twisted I am about this

    What I have become and what I am in
    No tears have I cried
    They said… I didn’t cry for you
    And no night did I stay up thinking about you

    Is all untrue.

    There is no one I haven’t told about my love for you
    Take me back into your arms
    Tell them we were never apart

    Save Me!

    Show me the glittering stars
    Take back my heart….

    Fate

    I walk miles without my shoes untied
    And I never knew until I got back home

    Somehow I faced the tears
    They judged me for ending up alone

    Why didn’t I realize it before the end?
    Why do I try to justify and why do I pretend

    Why am I like this?
    Why am I always too late?

    Tell if you have clue
    Has it always been an act of fate?

    My heart knew
    It knows what I know

    My soul is my intellect
    So they are one

    My heart knew
    It controls my racing pulse

    It knew
    It judges me too
    Love grew on me and in that heart of mine

    Any Regrets?

    When I had a chance to let and leave
    I was asked but couldn’t forget
    You are the person I believed in
    The dream we were about to achieve

    Now I am alone
    Silent as a grave in the face of it all

    Looking down on a plot of dirt where the body lay
    Like it was some other life ruined not mine

    I felt dead already
    I couldn’t feel my heart or soul
    Left alone with a broken spine
    Why did my kindness become hate?
    Why am I so different from how I use to be?

    Has it all been fate?

    Is fate the only reason for all that has happened to me?

    Something Different

    This week I haven't written a single poem,
    I remember times when I could never get enough
    Now every poem will be for your sake
    All my time and attention at your feet
    Things will be very different when and once we love each other

    A heart that was never meant to feel

    Some day, we shall meet
    I'll smile but my heart won't beat
    Have you ever known any one,
    Who would say I love you just as words?

    In love whenever it is convenient
    You can never reached their heart
    It's a heart that's never meant to feel.

    It isn't my fault that you recognize your heart,
    Is a heart that's never meant to feel...

    Well now, brotha Hodee, your pen is certainly on fire. I'll respond to each piece one at a time. The piece quoted above, gee, I think many are searching for that something, that kind of peace, that kind of wonderful. And if we find what we seek, can we trust enough to allow it to happen? Feeling this flow brotha.

    My Brotha, my brotha!!!! You definitely had the R. Kelly 12 play thing going on! I'm loving your flow! And somehow it all tied together perfectly! There's just too much meat for me to break it down right now...I need to chew on each piece one by one. But love, now that's a subject close to my heart! Why it has to hurt so I dont know but I've decided to stay in the game no matter what! I hope you will do the same.
