    Do I want you?
    Do I love you?
    I have wanted you long before I met you
    Before the sound of “hello” caught your ear
    I loved you long before that
    Do you see where I’m at?
    Long before I met you, I watched you from afar
    The way you walked
    The style of your hair
    But my game wasn’t up to par
    Do I want you?
    Do I love you?
    For sleepless night…and glorious days
    My thoughts sat heaving upon your face
    Studying, with joy, the image of you
    Wondering if its beauties are ever so true
    Do you see where I’m at?
    I’ve loved you long before I touched your face
    Or lay within your tender embrace
    Or held your warmth within my soul
    Or spoken all the things I’ve told
    So when you ask, “Is your love really true?”
    Or if the whole of me wants you
    Know that I will only offer
    The things that life and heart hold proper
    For deep within this gentle soul
    Are wonders and kindness yet untold
    These I willingly give to you
    Because…
    I love you.

    Precious black man,

    I absolutely love your poetry.
    I am always affected by your words. Always!
    And I feel so divinely feminine
    when I walk in your presence.

    Thank you for holding my hand
    as we travel our journey, my friend.

    baller - I love the depth of emotion generated with your declaration. You crafted the words that held this reader from beginning to end, testifying the power in your poet's pen. Good work B. Harry(Namyh)Hyman

    Baller, I've missed the magical drip
    of your pen that never fail to pull me in.

    Beautiful!
