    he brings the pain
    that sweet agony whenever
    his tall, dark shadow looms
    in the doorway and his
    footsteps fade as he leaves this place

    to take on another day

    he brings the pain
    when he doesn’t know I’m watching
    him make his way in this
    evil world that despises, disrespects,
    denies his value

    hands clinched, he smiles, anyway

    he brings the pain
    when, on his knees
    in praise, thanks, and supplication
    to Jehovah Ji’reh, Supreme Provider

    I incline my ears to hear him pray

    he brings the pain
    when I enfold him inside my
    embrace and he bends low
    to bless my lips with tenderness
    reserved for me
    our silhouettes make music
    all our own ~

    composing as we sway

    he brings the pain
    whenever I see into clear
    brown irises, his mind’s vision of
    an equitable society, his
    hope for a people truly free,
    his dream to be the man
    he was born to be
    I know, of a surety

    My journey, his road: our way

    Ms. Ma'am...

    ...you capture the essence
    of being sensitive to the
    plight of her man...

    if only people would be
    sensitive to the whoas that
    this world places on us...

    for it is when we get home
    that we look forward to the
    serine release...
    the embrace of a caring mate
    ...ahhh, sis...this is wonderful!

    ...but you know this!

    thanks and praises

    due to the Most High...Whose mercies are new each and every morning...Who has taught me to find truth, joy, and the sweet savor of love, in the midst of pain.

    Thank you for feeling/filling me with YOUR beautiful energy, collectively!

    A :)

    Alyce, Alyce, Alyce

    Gurrllll, here I am, sitting here listening to Wayman Tisdale's (jazz) new CD, Face To Face, while I'm reading your beautiful poem. The romantic rhythm of his music and the poetic love in this deep poem are a powerful punch to my soul and I read love and hear it at the same time. As you know, I love to go back sometimes and "dig up" pearls from the archives that I might have missed.
    Boy did I dig up a precious, precious pearl here.

    Alyce, you are a poetic master. Continue to touch the depths of our soul...we sho be into it.

    Joyce...Face To Face
