    this is ded. to those alone on Valentine's Day..
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Lonely's
    time's way of tellin' me
    that right now,

    nobody deserves me.

    Time's been tellin' me that
    for a while, now
    & I'm wonderin' if there's a shortage in supply
    of yang
    to complete the cipher
    of this yin.

    I'm lookin' for the other half
    of my circumference.

    'cause right now
    I'ma half moon,

    tryna' be full..

    I wrote so many
    "like" poems
    for sistas'---who didn't even
    deserve my words

    but I ain't trippin'

    'cause "like" don't last too long
    & it won't be long
    before "like" becomes
    "idont****wichunomore"

    yall can keep those
    words---

    'cause "like"
    don't hold the weight
    of what I'm lookin' for.

    when I find
    my 180, I'ma write her
    "love" poems that wear the blush of her earth tones
    like Erykah's "earth song"
    'cause pheromones
    make a brutha'
    do
    some crazy ****

    I'd practice telepathy
    to remotely
    stretch Saturn out her ring
    watch her band contract
    & collapse
    yuh constellation
    amongst scatter'd stars,

    cued like pool balls
    outta' position.

    I wish Time'll
    break her cocoon early,

    'cause she takin' too long
    to fly.

    how many times
    can I count the grains of sand
    in an hourglass,

    before too long
    becomes a minute hand
    on a biological dial?

    but I smile
    & keep singin' Erykah's "earth song"
    until I'm completed
    with yang-inspired words,

    yin put to that song
    for her..

    pheromones
    make a brutha'
    do
    some crazy ****---

    like scramblin' the alphabet
    in Campbell's Soup,

    to eat the singular words
    while I float plural terms

    & I won't hesitate
    to make
    my words, worms
    that spoil yuh *** rotten.

    my pheromone song's
    a vegetable tune, vein'd
    to a cultivated soul
    & only she'll know
    the nutrients my love carries,

    she'll know the weight of
    what I'm feelin' for her.

    but
    until then,

    I'll keep Erykah
    on repeat..

    I feel this... that touch-starvation... an exquisite kind of pain...

    well done, Poet! And I must commend you again on your signature statement by sista/Poet Tonya Matthews... a very conscious sista/Queen.

    thanks for sharing

    Hoping that you found that other half brotha, and that you are still singing her praises so that she'll always know. Enjoyed your expression.

    back to the top.
    I love the Erykah badu's Earth Song.
    I knew I wasn't the only one.
