    I search the crowd looking for your face
    but somehow I know
    you will not be there

    Looking at the blank souls
    stare at me from behind the thin
    sheet of light from the stage

    But, I still search
    it's hard to stop looking
    when all you eggs hatched in on basket

    I searched the crowd
    untill every tears fell into my
    erotic bowl

    I am not the adventurous type
    I told my self
    once

    But , I still search
    for our memeoris in the crowd
    I search for my heart
    on door steps of churches

    Have I ever loved me

    Really loved me
    the way I loved
    the(him)m

    And I still search

    Indeed poet it is so good to see your name before me...

    this line left me agasp...
    it seemed to personify the act of
    sacrificing self love...when "in love"
    and burn these words directly into
    my melancholic, poetry smitten heart

    Beautiful work...as always

    Much love,
    Sage

    Read sex books get directions then guide, have affection inside

    For girls of this world, must learn to conduct myself with pride

    Have a free plan that demand kisses but need a hot ignition

    And top position in bed to have sex and proceed with tradition

    The fact is I need her but I act as leader// “so boo I know you

    Can be a true wife through life you do nice kisses and throw new

    Stuff in smooching, aw girl your coo-chee is a moving target

    So I’m grooving to mark it with love come lie on the carpet

    With this thug” “MADD wait you may want cake so don’t fake it

    Your order is whack so like a quarterback you go fast and naked

    Throw a pass try take it so I’m the intended receiver? “Oh naw girl

    Just the law of the world to rap to a chick”

    Can you

    Can you translate that n 2 words that are not abbreviations of language
    words that penetrate my soul
    can you breathe my essence off the floor of the "masters' bedroom"
    Help me see the light show your self in crowds of inclusion, show your self in
    dark open spaces

    hold my slience in you IPOD
    can you teach me to let you lead?
