    I ask you a few questions
    As we sit here on the beach
    I hear the constant roar
    Of tidal waves which brings
    Music to my ears
    I, looking at you, gazing at me
    I run my fingers and toes
    Through the warm sand
    As I await to hear your
    Answers of love flowing
    From within, I feel the rays
    Of light on my feathered
    Soft skin and I think of you
    I see rays of light on your
    Skin and my imagination
    Runs wild from within, I can
    Hardly breathe....
    I feel a soft, but, windy breeze
    As I drift off into deep thoughts
    Of you...I imagine what it
    Would feel like to hold you
    Close to me
    I imagine what it would
    Feel like to kiss you
    Passionately....
    I feel this atmosphere blinding me
    But, anyway, what was I saying?
    Oh, yes, uhmmm...may I ask you
    A question or two?
    Okay, now let me see, where
    Should I begin?
    How about right here...uhmmm,
    In the middle of the night, may
    I be the one that comes into
    Your dreams?
    Not to haunt you, but to let
    You know that it is I, who
    Resides in you
    In the middle of the morning,
    You know, before you start your
    Day, may I be the one that drifts
    Off into your thoughts reminding
    You of what you felt the night
    Before?
    I want to leave footprints on your
    Mind, is that okay?
    In the middle of the afternoon, as
    You carry on your day, may I be
    The presence that you feel
    Around you?
    May I be the one that you yearn
    For?
    May I be the reason why your
    Heart beats are so diverse?
    May I dwell deep down in the
    Depths of your soul?
    I see you still gazing at me,
    As I slip into asking you
    Questions, you see
    Oh, I'm sorry, is that too many?
    But, I just have to know....
    Still sitting here on the beach,
    As I wonder what your answers
    Will be I hear them loud and clear
    As you gaze at me

    LISTER...

    i wanted to flow with THIS but thought i'd mess up the intangible KISS that you so eloquently inferred without SAYING...as you sat on that beach, at night, PLAYING.

    ask your question...if you will
    open the door to my heart that you might know how i feel
    i have plenty answers for you
    make your heart smile, awhile, boo

    AS THE RIVER FLOW.

    could it possibly be
    as we sit on the beach
    and i allow the wind to
    capture our embrace
    while i dance my fingers
    across your face i
    wish to answer the questions
    and yet my fear is if
    the love i see when i
    stare blindly into your
    eyes will be just for me
    or just a moment captivated
    by the scene that we
    paly here on the sands...
    i am all that you wish
    and yet i shudder at your
    kiss for i cannot see
    tomorrow when your
    love blankets my vision...


    hey there my poetic friend, you have a way of instilling inspiration in us all. ahhh, the beach, the sand, sitting alone and sharing a moment with each other...that is true love...i don't know whose on your end to receive such penmanship but if they don't recognize soon i see a lot of suitors in Destee standing in line...

    i'm handing out numbered cards right now...

    "Alright don't push!!! Leave your resume with me!!! Make sure your picture is included and no funny stuff!!!! $$$RICH$$$ stop jumping the line... GQ, chill out back there..."

    beautiful scribe my friend...always a fan of yours...
