    I’ll never forget that night you caught my eye
    Like a penny on the sidewalk
    I won’t lie I was staring at your tail
    But I turned you face up
    Because I wanted to see eyes browner
    Worth more than Lincolns’
    And for an instance
    For that night
    We danced like two wild lightening bolts
    At the end of a long dark highway in the
    Middle of an April storm
    Our meeting was more than electric, but brilliant
    The way that Edison had thought up the bulb,
    But our invention was better
    Because we had thought up love
    And for an instance
    Your eyes were two oxygen
    The breathes I desperately needed
    And every time I looked into them
    I became Helium
    Unable to keep my feet on solid ground
    And when we touched,
    God when we touched
    It was like water, sweat pouring
    Like waterfalls from our foreheads
    Pure and beautiful like moonlight sleeping
    On a midnight sea
    But luck would have it that
    Chemistry would do us wrong, breakup our compound
    Now days go by and breathes grow thin
    Without my oxygen
    Now there’s no lightening or thunder in us
    Time has reduced that to a simple hello and goodbye,
    But I will always remember that instance
    That one night
    That sparks made fires in our eyes.

    Your in depth description took me there, to that electrical meeting between you and she. This was beautiful, so nice to read something new from you.

    I'll never forget how our eyez had lock
    and then all I wanted to do is hang on your block

    the way you was feeling me you cant explain
    I couldnt contain

    the way i would groove you if we was to be alone
    but im not ready just met cha to take you home

    but the way we move to and fro
    I feel the heat between us as im hoping this thang will gro

    our encounter was meant to be
    you was made for me

    as the dance floor became our own
    I gave you the number to call me on the phone

    and hopefully you wont hesistate
    i promise ya i wont give you what you dont need on your
    plate

    just enough to keep you satisfied
    so sit back Tha-Emissary and enjoy the ryde

    as Im mentally working you
    the only thing left to do

    is give us this chance
    to see if this Lust or true romance
    this dance

    shall or ever have to end
    Hi Im Nevar your Poetic Friend

    all you have to do is call my name
    Tell ya right now i dont play no games

    until

    love!!!!!!!!!​
