    I made love to an expressionless spirit
    embodying a cast of insincerity
    because he knew not
    how to return that same kind
    of love

    His heart was devoid -- and with
    his disrooted arms
    he could not hold me
    near enough to him so
    that I could listen to his
    paradoxical sweat dreams
    that paraded out from
    the pores of
    his black satin skin

    He'd often keep fear inside
    the seam of his upper right pocket
    slightly above the
    impulsive beat of his cold
    body's congestive heart

    Everything he spoke of
    was rhetorical -- emulated
    and without thought

    At one time I cared
    so much for him that
    it weakened me
    draining my now
    irrepairable soul
    of it's liquid love

    He played me so much
    that I became
    his misc-eye-llaneous
    music maker ...
    an 'extra' instrumentalist
    without a part in
    his life's symphony
    ... he did not need the
    accompaniment of divinity

    It didn't take long
    before I became
    ~ Unspecified and 2nd rate
    ~ his 'so forth', and his 'so on' ...
    ~ an abbreviation of love
    that never received a deeper
    meaning

    So ...
    I finally realized that I couldn't
    offer him what he was not
    truly searching for
    ... and I could no longer
    fill the void of his own
    absent emotions

    No longer would I be his ...
    Et Cetera ... Etc.

    some people

    don't realize what they have until it's gone

    um another great piece of art work

    i love you word play

    i trying to use my imagination
    but i don't have one

    no no just kidding

    my writing come from my soul
    i'm a fighter
    so that's what comes across on paper
    but actually i'm a very nice guy

    but i will handle my business by any means necessary
    so some people term me "trouble maker"
    why? cause i don't allow them to walk all over me
    and i don't sit still and let it happen

    ya know



    <DSS>

    PS thanks for the session send my the bill
