    I Got Male

    The first letter I received
    Written in invisible ink
    Only the soul could read in between the lines
    The mind tells you this is different
    The heart discontent knows
    This is not the same as sacredness
    But the bliss of a first kiss
    The stroke of a lovers hand
    Across the small and wideness
    Of intimate cavities
    Brown sugar so sweet and sticky
    Molding
    Two to one
    A delicacy we be
    Now, has become delicate
    Walking on egg shells
    Beaten scrambled and never over easy
    Scars not seen
    Still leave a blackened eye
    Cold and blue
    Bruised by the deadening of what was love
    Shaken and stirred
    We drown in Martini and straight up shots of Tequila
    Sitting side by side
    We dance with each other by text messages and cell phone conversations
    Other partners have cut in
    I have looked into the mirror and can no longer see myself
    I am absorbed in the pretty things surrounding me
    Hiding the ugliness
    He said
    If you were just like the woman I fell in love with
    But we both know you only fell in love with the way I loved you
    When I first looked at you
    I knew God had pulled me from your rib
    I was shod in the peace that surpasses all understanding
    As Christ, I would lay down my life
    And truly I have this cross to bear
    You were my man not my God
    But somewhere in you I saw my father
    More so the earthly one instead of the Heavenly...
    I should have prayed harder
    I should of stayed more on my knees
    Instead of prostate on my back
    In fact, some say the sweetest meat
    Is ravaged rare and bloody
    While I have always prefer well done
    Rare semi preciousness is sometimes better left undiscovered
    If I could be your best friend again
    I dare not detour to become lovers
    He said
    I remind him of his mother
    But my womb is not big enough to carry him
    Pregnant only with thoughts of what we will grow up to become
    We are fraternal twins birthed out of the same love
    Looking not sacred, but different

    The last letter I received
    I didn't bother to read
    Our love has become filled with interjections, exclamation points, and colloquial
    Of the inhumane kind
    Antiquated
    There is no longer a definition for us
    We both speak different languages
    That neither one of us understand...
