    Collab piece by poets Phenomenon and Signature
    Written 4/28/08

    Hello there ...
    Wow ... Forgive me.
    My mind is in about a thousand different places.
    Where?
    Uhmmm ... just memories my heart just cant erase.
    It’s –
    So euphoric, yet prehistoric.
    Though it seems like only yesterday,
    my heart still commences to reaching for it!
    I ...
    Let it continue to rack my mind.
    I ...
    Play our kisses back every time.
    I ...
    know that you are no longer mine.
    I ...
    I’m sorry ... I seem to have started rambling.

    It’s just that ... I’ve been thinking ... well ... hoping ... actually praying ...
    About what? (Laugh) Nothin ... Okay, you.
    Naw. For real.
    You – enticed my heart, my body and my mind.
    You gave me a love that advanced to another kind ...
    Another kind of understanding.
    Another kind of compassion.
    Another kind of trust.
    Another kind of hope.
    Another kind of ... life.
    Baby you gave me life!
    (Sigh) Ah, there’s that smile that I fell so deep in love with.
    That smile that made my heart stutter and stop to suffer from
    periods of catatonic moments of bliss that ran so deep
    that even Flo Jo’s speed couldn’t keep.

    ****, I missed those eyes ...
    You know, I could stare into them for hours?
    No, For real ... Baby why you shakin’ your head?
    I’m sorry ... I didn’t mean to call you “Baby”, ...
    But my heart did.
    Did I just start rambling again?

    I’m sorry. Let me be quiet ...
    (Sigh)
    Wait ... There’s some more **** I gotta confess
    to the rhythmic beats from the core of my chest.
    I cannot digress until I speak this depth.
    I hope you don’t mind ...
    If you do, that’s perfectly fine.
    But I’mma STILL speak my peace
    as my soul’s desire is to release these
    solemn confessions. I owe you that much ...

    Cuz when I think about your touch.
    Mmmm! (Chuckle) It’s pure bliss.
    It’s like God’s assembly wrapped themselves
    within your skin and ...
    They allowed our hands to divinely kiss.
    I remember we found ourselves ... lost.
    Kind of ironic, huh?
    Finding yourself lost ...

    I found myself lost in your kisses and you in mine.
    Lost in your touch til the sheets wrapped and twined.
    Lost in your eyes and lost in your smile ...
    I ...
    Lost myself for so long in you, loving you, enjoying you,
    Holding you, exploring you, cherishing you and losing you.
    I lost myself in missing you, breathing with you, and
    making love ... to you ...
    To the rhythm of our own beat ...
    Just losing and finding ourselves in one another until
    I ...
    (Clears throat)
    I just did it again, huh?
    (Snicker) My bad ...

    It’s just, your love, it frees me.
    You made me wake up every day and made me wanna BE me.
    You gave me ... purpose.
    And you definitely had my love flowing with an infinitive surplus.
    When I realized how lost I was, I didn’t seem to mind ...
    Especially since you were where I wanted to be until the end of all time.
    Hmm! ****, you fine!

    Shhhhhiiiit ..... (laugh) I remember when you used to be my Snookie,
    and I used to be your coconut head love monkey.
    Remember dat?

    I remember when I first
    picked you up.
    First time grabbing your hand
    Our first kiss.
    And I remember when I dropped you off,
    how I loathed going back home!

    When I look at our pictures,
    I look at them with such inspiration.
    I know I cant change the past, only learn from it.
    And the present is what I’m implementing on dictatin’.
    I can summarize it all by admitting, “I’m still in love with you.”
    But nah!
    That just ain’t enough.
    Elaboration is needed to get my point across,
    and even if I told it all,
    my soul could continue to speak some more stuff.

    With you, a future is what I see,
    You make my soul feel free.
    Like running captive from slavery, free.
    Logically ...
    There is no purpose of “I” without it converting to “we”
    Eternally – I pray
    And I’ll wait for the day to hear you say ...
    “I love you too, big head.”
    I know that’s what you’ll say.

    Sorry ... I did it again ...
    I’mma shut up now. Forreal this time.
    But in all honesty baby ...
    I love you still
    And
    I
    Always
    Will

    Whew... I'm loving this honest, soul deep, conversational tone. Having a conversation like this, we just put it all on the line, feeling as we do, like we have nothing to lose. I was totally engrossed in your words poet.
