    She speaks…
    and we can’t help but listen,
    weaving words into those intricate locations
    causing multiple rotations within our brains
    as we circle around her words…
    moons to planets
    completely controlled
    by the magnetism in her flow

    they seep (her words of beauty and pain)
    into the marrow of our collective thought
    causing a wave of great emotion
    and a ripple effect
    as it moves and grooves its way
    through every pore, until we thirst for more
    knowing we ain’t seen nothing yet

    she transforms love into rich metaphors
    of raindrops slowly ‘kissing off ‘ clouds,
    then plunging, diving, plummeting
    headfirst
    into the grass,

    she manipulates each loss, and the tragedy,
    into an emotional struggle we all can share,
    melancholy flowing from her pen
    like chills from autumn wind,
    and she doesn’t seem to care whose watching…
    cause she’s lost in the words
    lost in the way they come t-o-g-e-t-h-e-r
    to represent the storms she’s weathered

    she’s my inspiration
    as each of her poetic conversations
    (with me)
    seize me, and pierce me,
    I’m instilled with the way she feels
    and isn’t that the purpose of poetry?

    She does do that thang good ... don't she !!!

    :toast: To The Sistahs of Destee :toast:

    I really wish I could claim some room in the lines of the poetry
    you've dedicated to her ... but i know better ... for there are
    ladies up in this house that know how to use words to trace
    all of the paths to one's heart, mind and soul ... allowing all to behold

    Wonderful Tarheel Poet ... Thank You!

    :heart:
