    Shape Shifter:
    This is my heart
    Caring heart only pumps of
    Clarity find its way to my
    Love machine of Balance
    It’s a good heart a heart
    That’s full of tears and full
    Of forgiveness of now and future mistakes

    The heart of Joan of Arc
    The heart of Tub man
    The heart of everyone woman scorn by love’s
    Firm Hand
    It’s a heart that’s ready to fight and pre-pared to hold the place of Solace

    It’s a heart connected to the lonely head of Ochosi
    A head that’s hard as rocks and solid as the H2O
    Walked on by Jesus
    A head that only goes on the path guided by my forehead
    Stubborn some would say or even torn between playing the roll or direction the play
    Holding all the tears of everyone’s sorrow on my chest
    Needing to find the structure of church in the middle of my livening room
    A head that’s Strong no second guesses, my touch of gardenias or the caresses of a baby’s feet.

    Pitter Patter down the lonely street called my soul
    No revolving door only one way in rest you weary feet leaving
    Your shoes at my front door and your problems in my pits
    With force of now and conviction of why only the soul has the
    Windows to find the entrance the fore thought
    The lost key to my soul
    When tragedy struck like a hawk protecting it’s pray
    Staring into
    My Soul willing to take on everyone’s needs
    To come
    Like sweet Honey and melted Molasses.

    Dripped down the back of my thought like secret
    Cerium freeing my stigmatic awkward
    Soul touched by the tips of my heart
    Wailing off tears belted out from my lips this is my song
    MY SONG of right now in the moment
    In the new flesh my flesh freshly picked
    My soul caressed by the juices purging out
    My heart weary from all the opening of doors
    And releasing of chains….entangled in each other they slept this is my song
    My song of me

    What can I say about this - it is a phenomenal piece of work. From the title to the last line, utterly beautiful and captivating. Angelic said it and I agree: this is what poetry is meant to be.
