    He used to read to me


    my
    being
    was taken by
    every silky note that came
    from within
    him

    his
    creative essence
    produced picture thoughts
    that I journeyed on of his memories
    hopes and dreams and wonderful imaginary things
    it was extraordinary the way his words
    spellbound me

    I
    cried
    when his words cried
    laughed when they laughed and
    learned when they
    taught

    He used to read to me

    with
    wisdom
    and witty phrases
    he kept me all caught up
    induced an addictive tendency in me
    that made my mind salivate at the thought
    of his words spoken
    to me


    intensified…
    my
    interest
    used to widen
    to feast on his compositions
    like
    a
    fiend
    every sound outside of his voice
    was nonexistent when he used to read to me
    often…

    I
    slipped
    between his lines
    and realized he relished our
    intimate word moments
    just as much
    as
    I

    He used to read to me


    someday…

    I
    hope
    he
    will


    …again​

    a very nice tribute to one you've cherished deeply. the written word has an attraction all its own. to hear it spoken amplifies that attraction many folds. THANK YOU for these words.

    the river floweth.

    He read to you

    The soothing sound of his voice
    And his rhythmic word choice
    Stimulated you

    Moved you
    To love filled moments of
    Erotic fantasies

    That came to be

    You felt as he felt
    You laughed when he laughed
    You sorrowed over his sorrows
    But you didn’t know

    The history behind his tears
    Or all the fears he endured over the years
    That isolated his soul

    He read to you

    From the pages of a heart
    Big and bold
    Where “icy cold” was melted away
    By the “everyday” warmth of you

    He read to you

    But his reading was a
    Selfish design
    To control the mind
    Of one
    Not of his kind

    He read to you

    But was his reading true?

    i was moved.

    We don’t realize how much of an impact that people have on us until it’s gone or MIA, the fact that you have such strong emotion for his words shows your ability to appreciate the things that truly matter and often go overlooked. Beautiful scribe poet.

    Sister Poet Cocobutterskyn,

    Intimate and lovely. The soft longing behind the subject's words is so touching...so familiar. Sis, I'm searching for words to say when all I can do is breathe this piece in. I love this..I truly do.

    Some day I would love to know the object of this wonderful display of love and loyalty. I viewed this piece as a young girl, admiring and loving her father innocently as her first love. And after growing into womanhood, and he in the depth of age and forgetfullness, she once again desired him to be able to read to her again.
