    dedicated to Dr. Peace, et. al....


    …and then there’s the odd time
    when moving on can be the wrong
    direction…

    it is possible to move forward
    just marking time

    with collective backs turned
    to the reality that needs
    to be faced…

    …and if pride is the issue,
    making eye-to-eye contact much too
    painful,

    the remedy is rather simple
    (since you look good coming and going)

    just re-trace your footsteps backwards
    to that place where truth was found
    in the mix …..remember? poetry nights
    3-way celebrations (and more)
    that elevated the art of conversation

    see….

    too much time, and those real and imagined
    (and unimportant) circumstances have
    infiltrated….dividing the happy camp…

    so much so, that no one even notices
    the fire still burning in the lamp

    that light that used to dance in concert
    with all the crazy laughter
    as the
    juice of life through poetry
    spilled…..before, during
    and

    after

    throughout the night, and even into day
    the visible bond was growing
    which is what makes it so painful now
    because there’s no more “flowing”

    please "hurry-go-bring-come" back
    to joy…
    separated, no one can win…

    because if there ever was some love…

    re-trace, begin…

    again

    yes

    there is the odd time when all we've done is make a hasty decision in the heat of the moment....and then get too proud to beg.

    Regrettable.

    thanks for this.

    true indeed

    picking up where we left off --

    I think i understand this one A -
    take a plane, train or skateboard
    BACK to where you left what you were searchin for.

    For ME - that sometimes makes me feel stagnated -
    gotta keep it movin to get somethin worth havin.
    But I appreciate the willingness to go back.

    my sentiments exactly..

    'tis better to end the troubling situation than to end the relationship.
    it proves that love, no matter what can stand the tests of time.
    but if she's psycho, playa bounce.

    "and another love goes down to foolish pride"..

    I'm all for going back no matter what it takes to get there..otherwise you'll always wonder about the way things could have turned out...

    if you found it once, you can find it twice..

    in deed at som' point we all need to
    turn back da tyme for a min....
    look into our hearts of reality

    so many lost out there in the williness
    of self forgetting other back there
    in da poetic state of mind foolishness
    blow in
    yet we capture in glory
    i see what u mean
    write dem wordz Queeneth A:heart: :kiss:

    where did love go!?
