    If Only For One Night....


    Maybe it was in the stars, the way that we met
    I can't seem to forget how I...how you...how we...
    Pardon me, but I'm reminiscent on love and lovemaking
    The way that I was taken with a single question
    The injection of you into me had me thinking about marriage, family, and Christmas trees
    Living happily in serenity and the beauty that could be...or...could have been
    Wait...let me backtrack to where my heartache began

    By chance and a glance, with your words you romanced me
    You answered my heart with your smile and answered my prayers with your touch
    From your gaze I felt flushed
    Because you looked into me as if you were staring into the sun...
    Watching our children run and dance barefoot on it's rays
    My whole world seems a purple haze
    And I don't want to entertain the thought of staying sober
    I want to keel over, drunk and dizzy off of you

    My emotions are all misconstrued and I don't know what to do
    Because this is just a fraction of what I felt when I experienced...you
    The way your poetry kissed my lips
    And whispered subliminal messages to my heart
    The art of your mental foreplay was scripted like graffiti in my mind
    Time after time I tried to analyze...while tantalized....by the way you romanticized my thighs and everything within
    How can this connection be a sin when the heavens opened up and sang Hallelujah while we made poetry in motion?

    Don't get the notion that it was all about the physical
    I'm talking, lyrical verse like deep waters...
    Verbal typhoons raining on the cranium...
    Oratorical orgasms that'll give Webster spasms
    Causing him to rethink his dictionary and write a new one inspired by you and me
    Cause baby...we redefined what love means

    I'm bursting at the seams because you filled my cup of dreams
    That spills into the sky at night while I sleep
    Forming new constellations in the form of thee
    One night of ecstacy spawned by a question from you to me
    "Can I sleep with you in my arms tonight?
    That statement was the death of me
    You wrapped your arms around me and did exactly that
    As a matter of fact, I made the first move and all you did was react

    You whispered to me gently saying, "I want to make you remember me,"
    Well, that you achieved because I'm reminiscent constantly about lovemaking that causes the disks in my vertebrae to shift
    And how tenderly you entered as if you knew it would be your last taste of me
    So now I wait patiently for your return
    But I don't wanna wait in vain....for you love

    I can't get over the fact that you could hear me think and decipher every thought
    You read my past like it was a good book that you just bought
    Moving on after that night seems so hard because with every new face, it is you that I regard
    It's like you took pieces of me and you and wrapped "us" up in a realm that I can't break free from
    My thoughts of you make pleasure seep from every orifice
    Because the way you did what you did and how you did it should be considered an injustice with no peace or hope of release
    Cause see, my heart aches not from pain...but from longing
    To kiss and touch you...to study you
    I'll wait for you as long as I have to
    You can call me a fool but only a fool truly knows love
    If only for one night, I was a fool in love...with you.

    islander, I just figured out why I like your work so much: it's the combo of intellectual and emotional. Perfectly balances. And it's thick head stuff - love that deep thinkin ish. Flow on!
