    I can’t break my mind away
    From what I heard the first time
    The way the words rolled off his tongue
    That delicate mix of rhyme and rhythm
    Poetry written so deep
    He had my mind spinning
    Spinning in a soporific stance
    If only I had the chance
    I’d write my way inside his heart
    I’d blend beautiful melodies
    Then allow my lungs
    To beat box
    Lyrical izms upon him
    For this man was a poet
    And to know him was to want him
    I guess you could say
    He had some sort of
    Magnetism about him
    Cause he sent my heart singing
    With his divine inspiration
    Just the mere sensation
    Of his vocal vibration
    Had me tongue-tied
    See this man was a poet
    Armed with enough intellect
    To stimulate any mind
    Just watching him
    Had me had me wishing
    That I could be the pen
    In his hand
    That caresses his paper
    Or maybe the Mic his holds so closely to his lips
    As he spits words of passion
    All over it…
    You see this man was a poet
    And he sent my mind on trips
    Daydreaming at my desk
    While the tick-tock of the clock couldn’t cease
    My back to back thoughts of those lips…
    Making me want to take of sip
    Of his verbs
    Or become one of those adjectives
    ****, I’d even settle for a metaphor
    Metaphorically speaking…
    For this man he was a poet
    And I had to have him
    Because when he speaks
    He makes words come alive
    He had that neo soul type of vibe
    And the more I listened
    The more I feel under his spell
    He had the Langston Hughes
    To cure all my blues
    You see this man was a poet,
    And to know him,
    Was to love him.
