    It's been a minute.....
    5 months,...
    3 weeks,....
    and 2 days

    to be exact.
    long enough
    to reincarnate my old ways
    to be who I used to be,
    before
    there
    was
    U.

    see-
    way back when
    I didnt have to be so careful
    not to trip
    over the fragments of hope
    you so inconsiderately
    left laying around,..

    when memories of u
    didnt infiltrate every thought
    like snapshots
    taken on a dysfunctional camera
    blurred lenses,
    images distorted,..
    what you see-
    isnt always what you get,..

    Its been a minute
    and still,
    the passing mention of your name
    sends my heart
    racing-
    to an unreachable finish line
    gasping for closure
    or something,...

    anything,..

    to rid my thoughts of you
    but in each step
    towards my quest
    to forget you;
    missing you,
    only keeps you closer
    so,......

    I'm not missing you anymore.
    I'm letting you go.
    I cant continue to walk around with blinders on
    - bumping into information-
    as if I never even knew you-I cant hang on any longer,..
    my sanity wont allow it
    so I'm letting you go-

    ,..in
    a
    minute,..

    Oh yes, this is the place where you're tripping over things in the dark - your grief, your anger, and alla that stuff. You brilliantly captured the rule that the harder you try and shove it away, the harder it clings to you. Flow on, brothah, this is bangin.

    You'll let it go, in a minute, but in the present she is heavy ON your mind. Feels almost like an addiction, doesn't it? This flow felt very comfortable, like someone sitting on your couch, talking about their life. Still enjoying your flows brotha.

    (From a different perspective)

    In a minute…
    Before I knew what hit me
    ….your memory
    Had faded from me….so quickly
    When she…stepped in it
    And wrapped me with it
    …she knew how to spin it
    And leave me captivated in it
    She did it in a minute…
    Offering virtue in ways you couldn’t…
    I learned to love me…
    The “we” came immediately
    And so…I could love her
    The way she also needed

    In a minute…
    You were gone…
    And now…when I hear you call
    I know I can walk on…
    And leave you there for some
    Other unsuspecting soul to fall
    Because all along…
    All it took was a minute…
    For me to say…I’m through with it
    And get with a Queen…
    Who really knew what I needed
    Takes her time to get her hands in it…
    Study the formations of my broken soul
    Learn my language and be my backbone
    She gives willingly, the things…that I’ve so longed for

    …A minute and its intrinsic ability
    To fade so quickly although it felt like an eternity
    I’ve let you go…
    And allowed myself to touch the hem
    Of love…in spiritual form

    All it took was a minute…
    for your memory to be diluted
    Voids filled and dreams rekindled
    Because all you were ever worth…
    Was a minute…countermanded
    * anyway*….
    ….Love as I know it today
    ….is Eternally Sage

    Minutes don’t exist…in our metaphysics –
    Time was created by man and this love is of a higher reality ….
    it transcends time and space

    Awesome Poet… Awesome Poet… Awesome Poet…...
    Your pain is even beautiful!
    Thanks once again for allowing us to visit the gallery of your Brilliance!
    Love…infinite…

    *Kisses on your gorgeous spirit *
    Sage ​

    It took me a few minutes to realize and understand that, what wasn't to be...wasn't going to be.
    took me a few minutes to see with the 20/20 vision that I completly lost in view of certain things...until
    ...finally
    it came...
    down to...
    "In a...
    minute"
