    O, Jasmine

    The soul of an innocent person is truth
    No broken-hearted baggage
    No after-romance blues
    An insatiable thirst for untainted love
    “BoUgHt”…with all the hUnGeR you’ve ever thought of

    O, jAzMyNe

    I have SEEn the give-and-take of JOY and HEARTache
    Felt the strength of a heart borne true, for love’s sake

    I have come to know you

    Through casual conversation, I’ve come to know
    Your sage-like wisdom and humble soul

    Have you horned your fantasies…Explored your dreams
    Given rise to urges once felt but never seen
    Have you asked for blessings on your vision of tomorrow
    “Something old
    Something new
    Something blue
    Something borrowed”

    Have you thought about the moment your eyes meet your future
    That diamond in the rough…Trying so hard to meetcha
    Have you experienced the call of a lonely heart
    Wanting only to give your love-life a kick-start

    Have you tasted love?

    Have you wondered what “Moment and Feeling” feels like
    Heart…skipping a beat
    Nerves…tingling in flight
    Draped in heat
    …Under sheens of cold sweat
    Dueling with dreams you can never forget

    Not yet

    Be patient, Young Queen
    Your time will come soon
    Emotions will take flight
    Forever to swoon

    I have seen you

    Not depressed by dreams of things never had
    Nor enslaved by the hold of “First Love” gone bad

    “I’m available,” you said, of meeting a man
    Then added, with strength, “Not just any man.”

    You struggle to keep “Good hopE” alive
    Requesting a home for your hopes to reside

    “But, so far, hope has been denied,”
    You cried

    In the infinite depths of your cat-brown eyes
    Crying unsung miseries of loneliness and pride

    Don’t let it consume you

    In the midst of heart…and mind…and soul
    The strength of happiness resides, I’m told
    For with each breath…each heave of your chest
    The powers of love are made manifest

    In the crook of your smile; so gentle, so kind
    Are untold stories, as yet, undefined

    Love ~
    The judgment(er) of good
    The condemn(ator) of bad
    Everything you’ll ever have
    Or has ever had
    Lies within its
    Border

    Love
    The inexhaustible motivator
    (…of good)​
