    " i fell in love
    the first time that I met her
    a humble, laid back & kinda shy brother so I listened to her from a distance
    and let the other brothers sweat her"
    she used to do her thing
    beautiful voice, ahhhhhhh man she could sing
    as soon as she stepped inside of a room
    you couldn't imagine the joy she would bring
    but sometimes she said she was sad
    oftimes expressed she was so lonely
    My concious telling me to keep my distance
    my subconcious sayin' "she needs to know me"
    but I sat back and watched as some of the thugs took a chance
    I was confused by the way women & girls used to approach her
    the longer they would talk
    it seemed the more they used to get closer
    but some dudes were bold though
    they'd ignore the other girls & walk right up to her
    but she paid them no mind with their disrespect
    plus for acting like they knew her
    then, one night, like it was out of a dream
    we met on the dance floor when the DJ played La-di-da-di
    I did my Alvin Ailey thing
    but the whole time "I was really listening to her body"
    we danced all night long
    as her essence crept inside my spirit
    her spirit was so strong, it came thru her voice
    Iv'e even seen grown men cry when they'd hear it
    we spoke in private everyday after that
    as I scribble notes to her
    but the strange thing was
    I had to be at a bar, lounge or club just to get my quotes to her
    but if that's the "price I had to pay" to get close to her
    I was willing to do it from that night I first spoke to her
    But if I was going to meet her at the club
    I knew I had to have the right things to say ya'll
    so with la-di-da-di still playin' in my mind
    I used to scribble everyday ya'll
    My letters to her got so intense, one night she cme to me in a dream
    she said "I know you love me" I said yes I do
    but if I let you in my world
    "I have to make sure your heart is true"
    I said how can I prove my love
    she said "I know you love me" I said yes I do
    but if I let you in my world
    "I have to make sure your heart is true"

    I said how can I prove my love
    she said "there's an open mic contest next saturday night
    I want you to come & recite what you write
    I said anything for you
    but I woke up wtih butterflies
    in a cold sweat
    kept thinking, "but what if I"
    mess up,
    will she up and turn her back on me
    and what about the crowd
    would they laugh and start to crack on me
    but like a fool in love
    Saturday night came & I showed up at the club
    she was already on stage & I got kinda jealous
    at the first few who showed her some love
    and you know pride makes a brother bold
    so when they called my name, I walked thru the crowd & stepped to her
    glancin' at those who was with her b4
    like what was ya'll doin next to her
    but then I hopped on stage for my 1st time
    grabbed the mic, then like a punch in the chest it hit me
    I had lost sight of her in the crowd
    Not realizing that she was right on stage with me
    she whispered in my ear
    in order to show me love, you have to be willing to share me
    hold me in a positive manner
    the only way to truly take care of me
    right then I grabbed the mic and spoke
    I said peace & love to all
    I wanna share my love with you
    HER NAME IS POETRY YA'LL....................................

    Poetry

    Hi info-moetry
    This was indeed an awesome flow
    As i read on
    I felt the love of the poet
    Expressing his love of poetry
    and the shyness felt
    at the open mic
    and in the end
    the warmth from the flow
    I really enjoy your poem

    Peace and Love
    Sister BlueWater
