    for two years she seduced me
    turned my brain inside out and I thought
    of my days backwards
    of my life in total regression...
    to the point that when she said
    "blakverb" I heard "baby"...
    and yearned to be breast fed

    she touched me so deep-ly that
    she changed the channels on my
    self-perception / where I became her and
    ME....she / she was
    Everything....a prime time rerun
    that I never got tired of...

    she touched me in a more "literal"
    manner with cottoncandysilkchocolatemilksmooth
    fingertips that made Venus envious...
    she denounced her vagina and
    was overcome with penis envy
    ...she even stripped the planet of her name
    and placed it above my head to have
    revolutions upon my mind

    her touch blinded me / I saw nothing
    but holograms of her laying upon my
    darkness / her touch blinded me / I saw
    nothing but her thighs listening to
    the whispers of my blakness/ her touch blinded
    me / I saw nothing but her nature brand
    my soul /her touch blinded me /until all
    I saw was parts of me / days away from being
    whole...I needed her energy for my
    synergy...

    ...and right before my eyes
    she evolved from summer to winter
    cold in her touch cold in her stare
    cold in her ways she put my Love on ICE
    and right before my eyes I saw her deceiving me
    lying to me in ways only my needs could understand

    I saw her "counterfeit" carbon copied
    love from a Harlequin romance
    break me down into a pile of
    poetic words with no asthetic worth

    now I wade in a burning pool of
    tears that her Miss truths set aflame
    leaving sounds that created me
    muted / and a song that sang me
    lyricless / and I exist as five bars
    on a blank stare

    when I used to be titled "love"
