    ENNUI

    Uprooted becomes
    the iris leaf
    as it takes on
    the appearance
    of a sword...
    So too, is the enigma
    of poetry
    Augmenting the
    cutting edge of
    the sword or
    even
    replanting
    the iris
    turning the leaf into
    an *epee (*a-pa)

    the power of words...

    cutting deep into flesh
    laid bare by the sword
    that gave root to the leaf
    that was you.

    float, gentle one.

    let the words
    massage
    deep
    the wound
    of past loves gone awry

    'twas i

    that laid back the soil
    gave plant to the iris
    that gave sight to the one
    who recognized love
    through the eyes
    of one in pain.

    sing loud the story...

    Onelove

    A little word lesson for you ....

    ENNUI = boredom

    Epee (pronounced a-pa) = fluted-blade lacking a cutting edge ('blunt' sword)


    This wasn't 'another love u' type prose,
    brotha... but rather, I was speaking
    about 'self' through the
    uprooted iris leaf that takes
    on the appearance of the
    sword.

    (beware, sometimes you'll have to get the Webster's out to follow some of me inside the introspective poetry of N2) :D

    Baller~

    I thank you sincerely
    from the depths
    of my soul
    for reaching
    in and acknowledging
    what
    you see
    behind
    the iris' leaf
    and how
    so
    the story should be
    told ~ rightly
    righteously
    from
    eyelids that
    part
    and lips
    that become
    moist
    as I begin
    to think
    and utterances
    of words
    that flow
    from
    within making
    way for this
    art....formed
    ...ME...
    and thus
    the loud
    song
    of fullness
    pain released
    through
    N2 Deep -- POETRY!!

    Thank you for always dancing~
    as only YOU can ~ taking
    my hand gently
    a 'real' black man...

    One luv!
