    Peace,

    I wrote this in the middle of the night, hence the title...was "sparrin" with a friend, and it just came to me...hope y'all enjoy......


    it's true wut they say about mind sex/
    makes ya imagine all tha ways you can flex/
    hits ya harder than tha real deal/
    cuz it gets down to exactly how ur soul feels/
    you wanna stop talkin cuz you might let somethin crucial slip/
    but still you can't let go of all that intellectual tip/
    makes your mind start to wonder about all tha things you thought you knew/
    how do mere words start to excite and arouse you?/
    it isn't fair that you're not receiving a caress/
    yet you have no desire to start to undress/
    you just want to bask fully clothed/
    and let all tha knowledge start to unfold/
    wrap you up in its delicious logic/
    make ya feel all mellow and nostalgic..../
    is this it, is this wut everyone's been lookin for?/
    that feeling of having it all and still wanting more??/
    trying to absorb it all and hold it in your mind/
    so you can access it at any old time/
    the words he speaks, the sounds he does make/
    why do they make your heartache?/
    is it the truth and sincerity you pick up in his words/
    that allow you to feel as if you're as high as those birds/
    flyin with them in tha cool air,/
    flyin without a care/
    you don't care if he's leadin you to the snake’s lair.../
    with him you would go anywhere/
    just follow tha sound of his voice in tha air...his mind and yours meeting on an astral plane/
    his smile marking a permanent stain...your soul feels full to tha rim/
    you wanna obey his every whim/
    and finally you're at tha point when it's no longer about tha language/
    you want his body to take yours in frenzied bondage/
    want to give him all of your physical presence/
    want to be full with his magnificent essence/
    he's reaching for you, to take you in his arms/
    yes, you will submit to him because of his charms/
    his embrace like a thousand words travellin to your mind/
    and his kiss, oh his kiss, like it you will never find...../
    the words to express how he melts you into an abstract thing/
    the way he makes you want to sing/
    the feelings he's awaken after so long/
    you know what you have can't be wrong/
    you wish he'd never leave/
    u wish you never have a reason to grieve/
    you never thought u could feel like this/
    a feelin of such heartwrenching bliss/
    he's inside of you, filling you completely/
    never had you thought a man could make you feel so needy/
    but you know to him you would never lie/
    him only can you look straight in the eye/
    let him look into your soul and all that dwells within/
    give him the access to your praises and your sin/
    oh why, why does it feel so good, and yet..../
    why do you feel like you're caught up in a net?/
    you’re enfolded and you can't get out/
    you have no wishes to be without/
    him deep inside your soul/
    only he can make you whole...you find your thoughts repeating themselves/
    like they've been stored on shelves/
    and brought down to your consciousness when he holds you in this way/
    oh, please, never let there be an end to this day/
    keep this moment wrapped up in eternity/
    let this be the way it always is for me/
    thoughts of his warmth inside and all around/
    thoughts of him takin me right on the ground/
    thoughts of him....here and there...thoughts of him everywhere..../
    don't let this day end/don't wanna go around that bend...if this day ends, if this day is no longer/
    oh how my heart and soul will hunger...for a glimpse of his smile, an inkling of his thoughts/
    oh how my soul without him soon starts to rot....I want him here with me now/
    I want him here with me now/
    he's the only one with whom I'd want to be/
    because only he can understand and cherish me!!!

    PEACE
