    So far up into the sky, on flight 747.
    Seat across from me sits a
    Confused love of mine or
    He once was I think.
    I can’t be sure which he was
    But I notice the remembrance
    In his eyes as he meets mine.
    I turn away afraid of another
    Exchange of harsh words.
    Like the last time we met.
    I buckle my seatbelt, turbulence
    Is sure to follow. I want to
    Look at him so badly but
    I am afraid of what I might
    See in his eyes. Suddenly the
    Lights go out and words so
    Familiar to my ears flow
    Around me. The voice so
    Familiar to me it brings me
    To near tears. The lights
    Flash back on and I’ll be
    Dayum if this isn’t another
    Recurrin dream of mine.
    Instead of the flight
    Attendants and the
    Passengers that were
    Talking noisily around me,
    There is no one now. Just
    Me and him avoiding one
    Another’s eyes. I want
    So badly to wrap my arms
    Around his strong structure
    But resisting urges are a
    Common part of my life.
    I wonder why he isn’t the
    Pilot on this flight, I had
    The impression that he wasn’t
    Going to be on this one. But
    It seems as if I never have
    The right information. Finally
    I conquer my second grade
    Fears and gaze at him, to only
    Notice that all this time he had
    Conquered his fears and was
    Staring at me. Intimidation can
    Be the worst feelin in the world
    Sometimes. Why I was intimidated
    I don’t know. Wasn’t this the man I
    Had once called my king? Wasn’t this
    The man I had revealed all my
    Inner secrets too after he only
    Asked me once? Why am I hiding?
    Why do I not want to look at this
    Man? He is only another fellow poet
    That enjoys the passionate feelin
    Of writing as I do too. So as I sit
    In seat 9 I think about all this and
    When my answer comes to me
    I shall let ya’ll know…


    no replies are needed on this one becuz I'm not done but feel free to express your thoughts peace and blessins

    My throat is constricting so
    Tightly that it has become
    Hard to breathe. Why is this
    Happening now? When I have
    No one I can run to, nowhere
    I can hide. He is smiling
    Mocking me, telling me I
    Screwed it up. We could
    Still be together if I hadn’t
    Tried to cross the line
    Of friendship. His presence
    Is so remarkable I am
    Overwhelmed with
    Excitement but in the same
    Fraction of that second I’m
    Scared of what has become
    Of my flyte. Why are we
    Not crying out for information?
    Why am I not frighten of what
    Is occurring right in my face, but
    Instead frighten of the man beside
    Me with the smiling eyes and
    The frowning face. I really
    Wish that I knew the answers
    To my desires. I wish to speak
    To him in the comfort of his
    Flyte but I feel as if my cravings
    Are not mutual and feelings so
    Long ago should not be brought
    Back to surface in such a short
    Notice. I release all my worries
    In a sigh, they are still swarming
    In me but the escape of the air
    In me has eased my discomfort
    Just a tiny-teeny bit. I know he’s
    Looking at me, I just know it
    Because I hear the wanting
    In his breathing, but I feel the
    Hate in his eyes. I turn to look
    At him, desperation in my
    Eyes, pleads on my tongues,
    And worries in my head.
    I only have five words that
    Enter me with great force,
    And with the same force
    Rolls right off my tongue.


    What is it you want?

    What is that you want?

    You want to spill all of your
    Worries into me until you are
    Beautifully carefree. To taste
    my flesh once more but
    look me into my eyes
    And slowly tell me you
    Neither liked it nor needed it.
    You want to take my body and
    Squeeze all the makings
    Of me out of me and place
    Them into another woman.
    A woman you do not have
    Such a dark history with.
    You want to take the lips
    That once kissed yours
    And told your ears that
    They luv you and only you.
    Not Chris, Jerome, or David
    And savor them in your own.
    You want to stare at me with
    Eyes of hate but breathe into
    Me little segments of luv.
    You want to tell me you don’t
    Need me to hold you when you
    Cry, you don’t need me to
    Assure you that’s it’s okay, you
    Don’t need me to give you more
    Of my luv, you don’t need me
    Period.
    But we both kno that’s a lie.

    Right?

    You say I am wrong? Then plz
    Tell me what it is you REALLY
    want…
