    He feels he is being watched/
    looks over his shoulders/
    a little black bird sits there/
    he is now caught between
    these words and an animal
    instinct// what does he choose?

    He realizes that it's me/
    that I am there/ so he keeps
    on reading//

    I'm talking to you...

    Do you know that I think of you often?//
    Do you know that I LOVE YOU??//
    Do you know why I smile?//
    It is because I'm comfortable
    under the glare and warmth
    of double suns

    "Nah, this can't be?!" He thinks/
    as he continues to read//
    "these written thoughts can't
    be laid for me"...

    He closes the book/
    frustrated because he can't
    see me inside these words.../
    he can't smell me/
    ... he can't touch me/
    hell, he doesn't really know
    anything about me
    outside of my poetry ~//

    He walks slowly toward
    the fireplace to toss in
    this very journal/

    I am there/
    lost in a vision/ unable to
    decipher the fire that
    burns me from the
    page that writes me/

    You just don't listen
    with your heart .../

    You just don't see me with
    your third eye .../

    You just don't hear the
    feelings I speak to you
    through my writings//

    You question your own questions.../

    ... and yet,

    I am Talking To YOU...//

    the way you worded this piece was wonderful...
    can he see the real you in person...
    or the real you in words...
    same person...different way of seeing

    i hear you...

    talking to me

    as the letters
    ...every word
    flows off the pages
    and i turn
    toward the window
    of many souls

    i see you

    watching me
    with dark, mysterious eyes
    deciphering the lies
    of my deceptions
    veiled by the depths
    of strange intentions

    i hear you

    talking to me

    i see you

    watching me

    WOULD YOU CARE TO JOIN ME?:)

    ~~

    WE DONE, POET.

    One.

    If you hear me, then ...

    Draw closer ...

    I have begun this journal
    with a
    se
    lf
    im
    po
    se
    d
    ...... deadline

    but I am
    writing towards
    the circle of life
    with you in it

    and yet I'm trying hard
    to speak clearly to your
    unquieted mind
    because you mean
    that much to me

    this is contrived --

    Listen carefully

    Your language is no longer
    made pretty--
    you often choose your words
    just as you have
    chosen your silence

    I consider it --
    HONESTY
    ...of a different brand

    You simply place your
    statements inside
    the hole of a
    deceptive paradigm

    Forgive me if I do not
    speak metaphorically
    but I'd much rather
    be forward

    ...be(for)e word
    is intent...

    I Love You for
    the man you are now
    and not for the man
    you hope to become...
    can you let go of the
    past and just love me
    in return?

    What do you hear

    what do you see

    HOW do you feel


    {baller, hook it up bay-by boooy, thanks for this dance
    I hope my Regular Dance Partner will read & respond too --
    I'm anxious to know what he thinks.} :wink:

    Hey gurl ... thank you for reading... and, I'm glad you liked! Although, I'd rather say that I'd like to be out by the beach or the sea shore "k*i*s*s*i*n*g", instead of in a tree :lol:


    Thanks again gurlie!
