    wanting
    2 climb
    in2 the crevice
    between
    ur breath and screams
    when u laugh like
    u ain't never
    known nothin' but
    free.

    it is then
    i crave u 2
    ride
    in2 the break of
    daylight's grin
    crush my thighs
    i rise within
    fall
    2 rise again
    cho-co-late phoenix i be
    free -

    2 drink
    and ur skin-pools
    be quenched
    mirage?
    captured!
    lick u with mind
    before tongue
    sprints 2
    free.

    once inhaled,
    the smoke
    of ur syllables spoke
    and turned me
    fiend i
    hallucinated
    me in u
    shallow then
    so DEEP
    i emerged from ur
    mouth as my name
    free -

    my backbone
    from the jail
    of muted heart
    shackled pass-shun
    use ur mouth and
    mold my lips 2
    pray ur name in
    reverant whispers
    then i be
    free -

    when the dam
    shatters
    and my soul erupts
    like zion
    from my loins
    shouting praises
    through the sanctuary
    of ur flow -
    free

    2 say
    I LOVE U
    pure and crystalline like
    baptismal water
    dipped in hallelujah tears
    free to hear u echo
    and transfigure me
    pinch myself
    I
    AM
    FREE!

    alter,
    Fa real? Thanks! That's a great compliment.
    I think that's what honestly written love poems are really - prayers.....

    Thanks for the eyes!
