    I walk around, most of my day,
    with a smile on my face.........
    vandalizing how I feel/because
    this pain that has chosen to take residence
    next door to my joy/has taken the
    block over.....you have to have an
    acute eye/I mean your heart has
    to be able to visualize/a moment in
    time when it seems as if your unborn self
    is stillborn/when your words are disowned
    by the understanding of all/when you
    are a foreigner to arms that once
    knew you so well/sometimes I wonder if I can be
    read...if I can be felt can you feel me? If so,
    cry with me/because Heartache can't be
    seen with the naked eye...you have to feel.

    Poet...you are just ~AMAZING~
    whatever you write...just seems
    to come to life...

    I loved the line I highlighted, most of all...
    because it says so much about self actualization

    to say anymore would simply take away
    your gift and your work...speak for themselves

    You are a teacher with fathomless insight...

    What lingers behind the pain seen, is the excruciating ache of the pain felt, and I could feel, this. I've read plenty of your old flows, so great to be able to enjoy new ones.

    Once again thank you. You brothers and sisters spirit drives me to write. If one word touches someone I will continue to write. One day we will all sit down at the table of community and break bread.
