    I be falling—
    Into deep streams of beautiful thoughts—
    Guess who make the thoughts beautiful—
    Guess who keeps me thinkin' 'bout them—

    I be—
    Twisted—
    Dis-oriented like—
    Can't tell **** from sugar—
    Like can't comprehend the meaning of your frame—
    But i keep trying to decipher...

    I be falling—
    Sexual thoughts—
    I'd love intercourse with nevaeh-
    I mean heaven
    (got me tongue tied)
    jaw-dropped—
    falling—
    and the worst part is—

    i know i'm falling—
    and
    i can't wait to hit the ground—
    as long as its—
    as soft as you—

    (freefallin')

    Whoa....
    This was oh so beautiful....
    i read this and i think
    the "falling"
    would be what the experience was about...
    unknowingly
    blindly
    yet trustingly..

    this piece speaks volumes to me...
    thankyou

    8th!
