    I crack my eyes open.....
    and a flood of light comes rushing in
    I peer at it uncomfortablly..blink my eyes, and adjust...
    I stretch out in the covers...stretching my limbs
    I give new day oxygen to my thoughts
    and for a moment, I become very still...
    my face expressionless.


    I prepare my mind and body to get up
    and I sit on the edge of the bed
    Once again I peer uncertainly at the light....who is this stranger?
    I sigh deeply, and my chest rises
    the air feels good to my lungs
    and I just breathe...as I follow the rythme of his beat.


    The lines in my face display an inquisitive thoughts of the past...
    How could I let this be...
    I allowed someone to pour their darken spirit into me
    Not knowing how it would overtake mine
    Feeling his saddness for no reason

    and doubtful

    about what the world could offer me

    thru him....

    And the dark caverns of his mind....

    Lost treasures was he
    as he began to rob me
    I sob on my bed
    miserably


    The footprints he leaves
    are muddy on me
    as time clears their residue
    and a stranger passes thru
    one....that I feel nervously unprepared for
    but my heart, oh! how happy is she...
    i watch him move in circles around me....
    and something in me gets very still

    and quiet

    as I watch

    how he moves


    His movement is like grace for me
    theraputic and and healing
    his kisses are like ointment to my wounds
    that are painful to endure at first
    I am not use to his medicine
    it is foreign to me
    I stare in amazment at he
    so unreal to me
    My! How he is like a fresh drink
    of replenishing waters
    he closes my wounds effortlessly
    sweet caring kisses
    that I dont know what to do with
    because...im not use to....those things


    I dont know what to make of it
    but I know that I like it
    really like it
    he is like the beach to me
    gently washing the pain away
    wave by wave
    I am but a small sea shell
    In his love turbulance
    as he gently toses me
    onto the sand...


    I have walked past lonleys door
    just to meet her sister, Past Pain
    who is harder to get along with
    she has no regard or kindness for me
    And past pain has many friends...many doors.


    she attempts to make things difficult for me.


    And so I sit on the edge of this bed
    as if it is the edge of a cliff
    I look down to the floor
    hundreds of feet below me
    and i want to jump!
    leap, in fact
    into his awaiting arms....oh!

    I just wonder...

    will

    he

    catch

    me?

    yes

    i can't see why you shouldn't be caught and firmly held

    ((((((((SWEET*APPLE*PIE))))))))

    but if you have to wonder about that then something ain't right

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!

    sweet apple*pie,

    I for one, am pulling for you, and hope, as the others do, that you are successful in this new relationship, also, that it becomes nothing remotely similar to your past expence.

    I so hope this for you because, this thing is grinding at your soul, and we feel the burn from its sparks. Example, I have spoke twice and left you a note, and must come to a thread for acknowledgement. Please don't misunderstand what I have said, it is said with love, as I truly do love you! It is nothing to be alarmed about, just my relentless approach to communicate, that's all, okay:) Big Smile:)

    To get past lonely, to that place of honesty and devotion, yes, that is a wonderful place to behold. Emotively posed poetess.
