    Perhaps i shall call her lotus
    cause i see
    she’s open only in the darkness of my bedroom
    where black lights reflect the night’s brightness in the dark
    i see twinkles in her eyes like stars
    in night skies

    Black lights on white nights
    free us from the harsh light of moonbeams
    behind my closed blinds
    exist
    open minds
    and cracked windows
    allowing fresh air to break and enter into our lungs
    as we each inhale the others carbon dioxide
    waiting to exhale the taste of
    lips
    teeth
    and tongues
    existing in moment
    before the morning after
    after the night before
    we’re dancing
    on the cusp
    of the impossibly
    possible
    MY BROWN EYES GET HER OPEN

    Only
    in that moment
    incense smoke dances in her hair
    like the finger tips
    on afro picks
    with the black fist

    When we’re free
    from public stares
    and hair is down
    or wrapped up
    lies and false selves hold no meaning
    arms only hold bodies
    when hands grasp truth
    darkness sets us free from all eyes
    except our own
    OUR EYES GET US OPEN

    Did you know i can see you in the dark
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    i can see your light in the dark
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    i want to be the light in the center of your existence
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    in the dark
    no eyes need see this but your eyes and mine
    CAUSE YOUR BROWN EYES GOT ME OPEN

    But for now i’m just a slave
    to your second sight
    a slave to your free mind
    open only when Isis’s light fills third eyes
    like memories do minds
    and words do books
    love fills our conversations
    about building a nation
    and we call that nation family
    and in your eyes i see constellations
    that r2 fill the night skies
    and we call that constellation
    “a mothers love”
    i want a mother to love my seeds
    a mother is to be the first
    and best teacher
    even as you have been to me

    Seems now i’ve studied my-story for a reason
    now i can write what was left
    hidden
    to be found between the unthought of
    memories of tomorrows yesterday
    i am prepared to write her-story
    that is to say
    “your-story”
    only that other might study and learn what a lotus should be
    and this lotus of which i speak
    i believe
    i shall call her
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    WIFE

    PERFECTION.

    dedication to the one who holds us--men--who loves us...who opens for us...who is always there for us. BEAUTIFUL DEDICATION.

    "i want to be the light in the center of your existence"

    THIS SPEAKS VOLUMES ABOUT YOUR LOVE FOR HER.

    THANKS for sharing.

    It is so beautiful to see a lover express their feelings for a loved one in such an honest and sweet way....the fact that she holds a very special part in your heart and world, shines through in your words...

    I really like this peace...

    Welcome...
