    On a new page
    I haven’t written in months
    and I didn’t even notice
    that you were gone
    my fingers haven’t touched
    a keyboard haven’t stroked your dark shaved skin
    felt your lips against mine
    have forgotten the joy of finishing a verse
    Now, I’m finished with you
    I don’t feel much of anything
    anymore
    even now my fingers are numb
    All of my muscles have turned to ice
    moving gradually becoming unstuck
    why couldn’t I stick with you?
    you were out all the time. Where?
    where was I?
    writing all the time
    you were out I decided
    that since you like
    out that you could stay out
    Now I am out of words
    But not tonight
    Tonight I have a new rhythm
    Things I’d like to write about
    And he’s good and he loves me
    And I can’t imagine why
    I was ever with you

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Real Truth!


    lovealexandria,

    Awful good to see you back poetess, for real. I, for one, definitely noticed your absence...on to the new page:

    Tonight I have a new rhythm
    Things I’d like to write about
    And he’s good and he loves me
    And I can’t imagine why
    I was ever with you
