    Some How…

    You ENTERed that dark, smoke-filled room
    With your ALL GIRL crew
    Scoping the joint…like it was your world
    Just…someTHING to do

    I peeped you
    Over the throng of bodies and faces
    Blocking my way
    “****, she’s cool,” slipped out
    Before I could say

    “Hello.”

    “Hello” was a foregone conclusion
    Coz I had to meet you
    …To greet you
    To hold you within the rhythm of my “midnight’s yearning” curfew

    No way could I resist the time-framed notion of
    Doting emotions, where
    “How much longer,” and
    “How much more can I take,”
    ScReAmEd
    At me
    Like “Hello” was enuff to draw you to me

    But “Hello” was all I had

    “May I have this dance,” I asked
    I knew it sounded bad
    But I needed to capture the moment
    Before the moment slipped away
    And some other guy came your way
    Who knew what to say.

    I knew I wasn’t cool
    Couldn’t sing the blues
    Or carry a tune
    Or turn heads
    …The way the young playaz do
    “But I’m soooo into you,”
    Played over and over…in my mind
    And, if given time
    I’d like to show you what I can do
    I just can’t say it, Right now
    Or do it RIGHT, now
    I know I can win your heart
    I just don’t know…how

    Shall we share a room
    Get together…real soon

    Maybe…from midnight ‘til noon

    I saw you enter the room
    Suddenly…you were gone

    Some how.

    My heart was lost
    Before “Hello” was given
    Now…look at me
    Living my dream
    (With you)

    I knew
    From the moment I met you
    Silky things
    Were more than in my dreams
    And I’d experience someTHING special
    Some how
    (With you)

    "I just don't know...how" Yeah, right. Some How...I don't believe this statement. And I'm sure she thought him cool. I enjoyed this piece. A delight to read you, again, my friend.

    for a man, every meeting is a challenge. most times, we fail. but in those rare moments, when everything comes together, there is a richness...an excitement that lifts us to greater heights...and birth a new future to explore. it's been a journey.

    Thanks for reading.
