    What I want is
    poetry personified
    I want lyrics to be able
    to stand right by my side
    And phrases that will make
    me beam with pride
    I want poetry that knows
    how to show fear who's boss
    Words that don't mistake fate
    for a lucky ring toss
    and verses that allow themselves to win,
    cause they're able to move past a loss.
    I want poetry that
    I can caress and hug
    Gently embrace before we "shag",
    and no, I don't mean a type of rug.
    I want to spoon with words like "moon"
    and "June" all comfy and snug.
    Yeah, I want a sonnet that will adore
    me for who I am
    profess what's in my name
    and not give a good da@!
    for the prose accepts both the fiery
    lion within me, as well as the docile lamb
    I want poetry
    that I can feel
    that I can see
    so I can actually
    experience all that awaits me
    I want poetry
    in the flesh

    i was snatched by the title.


    her sixteen poetic lines
    are symbols of sixteen candles.. heaven-scented
    a variety
    of wine are her thoughts
    and l indulge
    like a king after the victory of battle is won
    and before the celebration
    of love is begun..
    and so she writes
    and recites
    she becomes John 1: 14...
    air
    water
    being.

    Thank you Blue, for saying that you loved the adventure. So good to "see" you round here poet.

    j'hiah

    air
    water
    being
    His love affair with words
    is genuine and freeing
    He is a Nubian poetic king
    who makes my pen want to sing
    Filling my pen with an ink of
    gratitude compelling me to say
    Thank you so much brotha j'hiah
    for responding to me this way...
