    what’s heaven to me?…

    …observing your peace
    as you speak write think
    or sleep &
    when you snuggle up to me
    as you dream
    or wake me slowly/sweetly
    with butterfli kisses on the
    back of my neck
    the way you hold me tight
    during thunderstorms
    or caress the worry lines
    from my forehead
    until my self-imposed
    “i-need-to-be-superwoman”
    mentality is gone

    …long easy sundays spent
    laughing about our differences
    & finding consolation
    in the fact that we
    have all of the important
    things in common
    & then there’s…
    french vanilla coffee
    raindrops falling softly
    brightly colored dashikis
    hazelnut-scented candles burning
    as we hold hands &
    say grace in two-part harmony
    or make love & arrive
    (at the same time)
    on the other side of divine

    …amalgamating your vibe
    with mine while bringing my
    conscious soul alive
    politicking passionately
    about raising our children &
    leaving a legacy of words
    & poetry behind
    as priceless gifts for the masses

    romantic meditations &
    inspirations aside
    you are simply the truth &
    just experiencing life with you
    …that’s heaven to me.

    elayne,

    can ya speak it more passionate than this? queen, you puts it (yeah that's "puts") down with your "i-need-to-be-superwoman" mentality. keep on being super, queen.

    cause you know you iz (and a **** good person i must add)

    thank you for this piece of you.
