    i prayed for you

    for many nights
    i laid next to him
    cold and dry
    wishing your existence into my reach


    i laughed silently at my boldness
    and told God everything
    i hoped you would be

    when i first saw your face
    i disregarded you
    as one of the many
    in the crowd smiling

    coincidence
    it couldn’t be
    it happened to fast
    even Destiny became excited

    lighting our fires
    to the limit
    and Lust stood so far away

    it was too right

    foreplay
    across a chessboard
    as our eyes battled
    hiding the truth in darkness

    Memory won’t let me recall
    why i asked you to go with me
    it said something about following instinct

    we sat under the stars
    and people watched out of their windows
    as i held you
    and spoke words to you

    you are real
    i used all five senses
    to verify

    and that night
    the first night
    i watched you sleep
    touching you into an arousing awakening

    i kissed you until
    i felt my lips enter into your skin
    i held you until
    my arms became numb

    i sprinkled you in my womanly wetness
    but before then
    you said i was yours

    remember...

    under the sky
    when i kissed the beauty
    near your eye

    you told me i was yours
    and Nature heard
    and now you are changing your mind

    i can respect that
    it even makes me want you more
    and it hurts

    you told me i was yours
    and God heard
    and now you are changing your mind

    i can deal with that
    but it doesn’t change the fact
    that i want you because you are mine

    i prayed for you

    for many nights
    i laid next to him
    cold and dry
    wishing your existence into my reach

    and now that i have touched you
    am i to let go
    of my prayer answered

    MzNappi...

    always a pleasure to read you...your thought provoking words. as hard as it is to watch one we love walk away, feel the tug of heartbreak ripping at our soul, we find ourselves stepping aside...watching that one go. watching our dreams, our tomorrows, our happiness walk out a door leading somewhere...away from us. though we'd like to say, "NO...please, don't go." we know that love not returned does us no good. so, we stand at the threshold of love, waving good bye to all that we are.

    thanks for the words, poet.

    Onelove.

    Ms. Nappi

    Thank you for speaking to my heart this morning. Your understanding and ability to articulate my very soul leaves me speechless!

    You are a wonderful danger that should NOT be avoided, if we're wise!

    Simply amazing, you.

    I too agree with those before me. It is so hard to see the one you love pull away and then leave. Yet you love them still. I am diggin ya flow sis
