    Yo its been a minute fam...but i'm back. Love you all! ~Agabus




    u have been this redundant soul
    melody weaving in and outside of
    raw veins, raw with the abrasive
    bleeding of something bitter intermingled with
    sweet remembrances of
    how I conjured your presence
    until you clouded my vision…
    u have been
    the potent ‘white devil’
    i have snorted until nostril walls;
    callous, spread their thighs;
    giving birth to
    numbness…u have been that drug
    of choice…having u
    in my inner sanctum was
    akin
    to a church experience:
    whispering fans disbursing thick hot air,
    choruses of half-sung, half-screamed
    ‘hallelujiahs’ old mothers
    being slain in the spirit…u were
    the bonding agent to my
    spirit…i
    used to usurp your existence;
    stealing fragments of your
    memories from my over-stuffed,
    under-sexed mind; feeding
    my pores the sounds of your heart beats
    and each down beat of ur
    heartbeat elicited sighs of cosmic release.

    No one
    prepared me for
    the potency of change…no one
    prepared me…not even you.
    the way u left me
    strident in spirit
    listening to staccato
    rhythms howl
    and cling to the familiar.
    I
    have become my own
    and become my own I have;
    it hasn’t been easy…too slick
    to rule and to dry to move, i
    will catapult what
    remains across the sea
    of age and time…I will simply
    keep hands to the plow…plowing
    forward…cannot…will not
    commit the faux pas of becoming
    Lot’s wife.

    Once you become so entrenched, it's hard to look back to how it was before. You have such a way of wrapping your readers up in your words poet, just mind blowing.
