    ....the more l want to be alone
    l have no dog to give a bone
    like Micheal McDonald i'm feelin'on my own but at least he had Patti Labelle...

    l must be accident-prone

    ... in my choosing of women
    got me feeling grumpy
    loss of hair and all plumpy cursing at little kids playing in my yard 'bout to jump me at least three
    "get the hell out my tree!!" :maddd:

    o.k l ain't made it to that degree...

    b/c l'm at a kind of peace given my the mental "age factor"
    an unsettling peace
    thinkin' back...
    God knows l had maddin(her)gy undergoing "rage factors"
    of hit and then split like my name was mitosis...
    we became a broken record - "bump, grind , bump, grind"
    l have grown tired of scratching them with my needle...
    time for you to collect dust.

    why do hearts of gold
    often rust from disgust and mistrust?
    but l'm no exception
    to the tarnished or tarnishing
    for l have stains that tide couldn't wash away and that clorox couldn't bleach

    l use to write poetry about the beach but now l like the garden.....

    to be continued

    Exodus :lol:

    trust me when he's in his zone

    he's in his zone and we may not

    know what may have gone wrong ;)

    j'hiah relax your mind, pray, and
    listen to some music

    do something soothing :0) :)

    sometimes even i'm confused :confused:

    when you write these poems something
    is motivating you to write them

    am i right? if not, then you can reach
    levels that I can't even reach unless I
    feel a certain level

    superior talent :heart:

    peace....

    is it tarnish...or are you merely taking on another shade
    of realness?
    are they stains....or are you reaching newer levels of conciousness?
    taking one for the other
    you always are the same strong brother
    but continuously evolving...
    life rearranges
    changing comes in stages
    bad situations you may have
    but they create the good and
    joyous creations, too
    depending on your view
    i'm feelin you - a thousand times I've flowed the same rhymes true....
