    Ummm could i
    trouble you?


    i really
    need for
    u to
    understand me...
    need for you to
    come devoid of
    misconceptions about
    me...i'm so much more...
    wishin you
    cud look beyond your
    five-dollar prescribed perception
    and just see me
    in all my
    psychedelic, forward-thinking,
    hi-fi essence;
    baby i'ma
    baddddddddddddddddddddd
    man!
    u
    cud see
    me as I see you...
    u know, u being a playground
    for me to play on...and splash
    my feet in yo waters
    watchin u shake with
    barely contained laughter
    each time
    i stroke yo rivers
    and give birth to yo
    tears of joy...
    u kno what i mean...
    remember when we were free...when
    we walked barefooted up to
    God and hurl'd
    our voices at his ears...challenging
    him
    to
    hear our love? remember that?

    *sighs*

    somewhere along
    the way
    u grew blind...and now
    u don't see me
    or urself much
    anymore.

    You took your heartfelt thoughts, and laced them into a poetic tapestry. Anyone with a pulse can feel this, poet.

    wow.
    that's nice. a playful interlude...a reminder of barefoot children.
    this brings up nice vibes...

    "u know, u being a playground
    for me to play on...and splash
    my feet in yo waters
    watchin u shake with
    barely contained laughter"

    that's nice...has so much richness in it.
    great write..keep em coming
