    Caught in your melancholy
    Sweet drops of hesitation
    Holds me close to you
    Can I drink from your cup?

    Rest my head in your lap
    Absorbing the scent of you
    Newness draped in silk
    Keeps my mind slipping

    I inhale your aroma a hint
    Of cinnamon wrapped in kemi
    Wish I could braid your hair
    as you play with my twists

    I adjust so all my wieght don’t
    Rest in your caramel frame
    Girl you know I’m a big guy
    And I wanna be light on you

    There’s something about you
    Keeps me wanting to come rest
    So that I can feel your fingers
    Dance through the lock of my mind

    Can I tell you how you soothe me
    Just being you as I find ways to
    Let go of the day, let go of the pain,
    To make room for the love of you

    I wanna lift my head to tell you
    How much I love you when I move
    You **OUCH** pull tighter so
    That I know this is your time

    I show you my joy as I dance my
    Finger up and down your calves
    Feeling the smoothness and the
    Strength of my nubian queen

    You know I’m trying to behave
    But when I tread to close to the
    Place that only I know about you
    **OUCH** let me know to stop

    I submit to you and you know that’s
    Hard for a brother to do but I can’t
    Help it when you patiently take each
    Lock and twist it with loving care

    reminds me

    of the dayz back in the 70s...on Black college campuses, just about everywhere, but especially in the south....sistaz sittin on dorm steps with brothaz clinched between their knees...braidin hair...twists weren't 'in' back then...but the concept and the hair-do sessions are back again! (or did they ever end?)

    This flow'd sensuous curiousity all up in it, D-Mo. Loved the way you worked the language!
