    i smell the haiku on your skin
    ...lines written in october colors
    smile on the tip of your tongue when it
    enters my mouth.

    i am awaiting you in the dark.

    we shed tears knowing our
    reunion is no more than an interlude
    to our 700 mile solitude in love.
    and still
    ...i find time in fleeting seconds
    to kiss the hours between your thighs and I
    find the days slowing down when your months
    became erect and still
    ...our future years became known when I
    came
    ...inside of your century, complete
    with old soul and an afrikan woman's legacy
    reborn.

    my life was not ready for you.

    i'm sorry that i've had to
    tidy up my space while you occupy it but see
    i didn't know you were coming
    (a call or an email or a message in a bottle would have been divine)
    but now, you reside in the melanin trapped in my spine
    and I
    ...walk upright and towering with the
    elevation your levitating love
    has placed at my feet.

    we seem to be one.

    thinking in singularity,
    **** moon, you
    made me surrender my identity to mimic something
    celestial just so i could be
    one light year closer to you.
    you made me collapse into a black star
    ...and reconstruct myself into a supernova
    just so i could be a sun
    ...for you and you
    only.

    but now we are back on earth.

    and as october's chocolate shades turn
    into december's quiet vanilla fall,
    wishing for our lips and poetics to
    mesh when the clock strikes 2003, we
    see ourselves only through the eyes of the other
    ...i no longer see the depths of me...
    without diving into you.

    peace.

    Wow. I loved this scribe especially the last line...
    "...i no longer see the depths of me...
    without diving into you."
    Very very nice poet.

    Exquisite and to perfection, of perfection, inspired by perfection. What can be more perfect than requited October love? Scribe.

    Mad respect
