    I remember
    how I felt the
    ~quaking~ from the
    basement of my
    soul to the
    rafters of
    my mind
    when his hands
    first gripped the
    pearlized handles
    of my ~door~...

    he possessed the key to
    my
    'knowing'

    & let himself in

    it was amazing how large
    he became inside my
    threshold, and
    my entire frame
    stretched upward
    ~ outward to
    accommodate his
    majesty

    my foundation
    shifted beneath his
    weight
    and my carpets
    plushed, rising to
    caress his
    feet....

    he walked through
    the expanse of my
    loving~rooms,
    bathing
    the air
    with his scent

    shutting out the
    noises of confusion
    he closed my windows
    and settled into the world
    inside my gates

    quietly, he still
    moves around
    making beautiful
    changes to my original
    decor ~

    he is the master
    of my interior
    design...

    and I don't mind

    because he's home

    N2, my sustuh

    in this case ~ the brotha 'came wit' the proper key...to unlock, open, and reside in ~ 'me'. And I'm finding when THAT happens, a brotha (or sustuh) is truly 'home'.

    oh, uh, mojo, my brotha ~ this IZ open house! :wink:

    Thank you for feelin it!
