    'If you just happen to love me'

    Then why is it so hard for me to see
    through smoke and mirrors created
    that conjest your lovesick energy
    I thought love was
    a sign known
    uni-ver-soul-ly
    but it's got me questioning
    'ability' --in doubt
    about the YOU that I-thought-I-knew
    irregardless of what it looked
    like; indifference
    from the others/previous/prior
    to whom dealt with me
    platonic/physical/sexual/ - ly
    If love were a stop light,
    then I'd have to turn red
    just to stop you from
    creating traffic jams inside
    my heart and head
    Yes, oh yes, you should ask
    for forgiveness
    ...if you've been found cheating
    for it is not I; -- and I do not
    convict the innocent - 'tis only the GUILTY
    that stand accused and in the face of judgment
    Don't imprison or punish me
    for I cannot fit into faulty made
    clothes nor do I walk around
    adorning your bright-assed colored hair bows
    that represent dressed up lies ...
    the ones that God only knows ~
    if you were speaking clearly,
    then I must be deaf
    cause I never heard the
    echoes of love from your soul
    crying from the depths of your chest
    so learn to 'sign'
    and outstretch your hand;
    get down from the
    'distant' platform from
    which you stand
    tell me up close and in first person
    that "YOU Just Happen to Love ME"
    since I don't believe you even know
    what REAL LOVE IS ~
    how it feels to make someone other
    than your self/ish happy
    without getting mad
    that you have to be honest ~
    so...are you absolut/positiv/correct/ly
    sure you want to board my vessel
    and
    make US and this
    Love Thang we've got
    more than 'super'
    more than 'extra'
    even above and beyond
    the ordinary
    "SPECIAL"

    Love is a ACTION VERB! (wink-wink)

    Well, al-righty then! I don't know if this is born "reality" or just creativity but it pulls no punches! *whew!* This was on FIRE!

    I, particularly, liked this part:
    WHOODIE-HOOOOOO!



    *However, "irregardless" is not a word.*

    Thanks for the "heads-up," but, no, I don't know them.

    This was hot, hot, hot, and yes I am so feeling this. That thing,that emotion, that way of life, that uhh! called love, is so very hard to figure out. and I don't know why when God's love is sooo easy. Bless up poet, Thanks for spitting the truth.And when you figure any of this out, don't keep it a secret, Please do share.
    Love On!

    I think the title so encompasses the feel of this piece. The love should be obvious, not an "if you just happen to" accidently fall into it. Always enjoy and appreciate reading a Blakverb piece, so I can understand how this was so inspired.
