    "Living in life's undertow
    Yearning to be loved"



    because the world is full of kryptonite
    that tries to zap you of all your strength
    sometimes i forget you are not a superhero
    who is invincible with an S branded on your chest

    sometimes i forget you have heart wounds too
    and need me to be that unselfish woman
    who builds within her love a safe haven for your heart
    where it cannot be harmed by the pollutants in the air
    so that it can heal clean and then breeze free

    sometimes i forget all you want to do is
    come lay your head on my breasts
    close your eyes and think of absolutely nothing
    while i toy with your ear and stroke your back
    without me uttering a single word

    sometimes i forget you just need me to be sexy
    allowing your body and mind to drink from the softness of my skin

    yes, sometimes i forget all you want and need
    is to be assured you are cherished and loved

    Kiwanda,

    I think you have finally crossed that bridge to communicating your own particular richness and warmth in a longer free-er Form.. How does it feel?

    Like love, James. Like love.

    If my longer form is evolving it is in part because of you. And no, I am not trying to placate you or stroke your ego. It's the honest to goodness truth. You know how much I value your artistic worth. Most times before I write I play your voice and your words of encouragement in my head, put the earphones on...and well...you know the rest. It doesn't hurt that I am truly feeling someone, either. (smile)

    I have yet to write passed my comfort zone, though. Sometimes I feel the best stanzas for some of my work are the ones I refused to write. I will work on that.


    Thank you, James.
    Sincerely
    :heart:

    Kiwanda
