    I’m obsessed with the caress of love
    I’m possessed by the sex of love
    I rest in the mess of love
    I confess for the best of love
    I nest in the North, South, East and West of love
    I can’t escape love
    I always mistake fake love
    For pure, crystal-lake love
    I incorrectly rate love
    I can only wake new love
    Take and validate sad, blue love
    Then remake every date of love
    Because…
    I absolutely…positively
    Love love
    I will do anything for love
    I live for the whiff of love
    I give for the gift of love
    I thirst for the worst of love
    I’m cursed with the hurt of love
    I birth every first of love
    I overwork for the outburst of love
    I yearn for that burn of love
    I turn with the worm of love
    I never learn from the concern of love
    I only trust for the lust of love
    I do what I must for the fuss of love
    I rust because of the dust of love
    I will do ANYTHING for love
    Please, don’t mind my dumb eyes
    I’m trying my best to stop them
    But they keep forcing me to cry
    And I don’t know why
    Really, truly I am happy
    I’m very happy
    Or at least I try to be
    For love is what built me this way
    So for it, I’ll always obey and stay
    I’ll do ANYTHING for love
    You don’t believe me?
    Well, just look at my reality…
    I walk through the days in the haze of love
    I live in the ways of the phase of love
    I am a slave in the caves of love
    Hell, I even caught AIDS while in this maze of “love”

    Thanks man, but this poem was all of the imagination and the situation a lot of our fellow black people are in. Thank God I am really not one of those people i just felt I needed to express something from their point of view, you know?

    You hit da nail right on da head nevar. That's exactly da concept of this poem, all that glitters ain't gold, and all that slaving you did to keep something going has gotten you nowhere but somewhere you can't escape from.

    Straight UP, DOWN, RIGHT AND LEFT!

    Humble thanks poet, for sharing. Crystalline flow and a pulverizing ending.

    One.
