    a real issue...a real struggle...
    ______________________________________________________________________
    This is not really about
    what I give you
    what you give me
    what we share

    cuz if possession is
    9/10 of the law
    well....

    see,
    I envy the night
    when you walk in it

    I envy the rain
    when the liquid drops
    caress your face

    I envy the space
    that surrounds
    you ~
    anything within
    10 blocks of you...
    no, make that
    100 miles


    I envy the force
    of gravity that
    holds you
    to the earth

    my love

    we can't get down
    like that

    I envy the sunlight
    that gets to greet
    your eyes when you
    wake in the morning

    I envy strangers
    you are kind to
    and even those
    to whom you're not
    so kind

    a moment in your presence

    all I'd need...

    All I need

    I envy your shirts,
    your ties, your
    underwear....oh
    I got it bad
    and I don't care

    Cuz of all the things
    we've said
    and all the things
    we've shared


    there's only one
    thing about which
    I've ever truly cared...


    having unlimited amounts
    of you...

    there,
    I've said it

    and nothing else will do...


    so, if possession is 9/10 of the law...

    Words will never express the way I feel about your poetry. It simply never, never ceases to amaze me. So what can I say?
