    sometimes when its dark I see your face.
    Angry and looking at me. I see the glare in your eyes and the emptiness of your reflection and know that you are really gone.

    sometimes when its dark, the little moments of the day that I missed in the hustle and bustle come back to me and they are visually louder then ever. I realise that through the corner of my eye I just about caught your shadow walking past me...sometimes when its dark...sometimes when its dark I hear the sounds embedded in my head. the breaking...always something breaking...sometimes loudly...sometimes gently..my heart sometimes travels in this darkness to the moments where I left unfinished business , tarnished business where the trails of my blood still lurks behind in a stench callling men from far and near to smell the stench of t his blood clotted with the memories of existence..sometimes...sometimes when its dark I bare my empty breasts to these corners of my mind.

    People say I have nothing to hide-the truth is I have nothing to show....hide and seek..hide and seek...hide and seek..****.. sometimes when its dark I fall asleep and slip into a dream where everything is perfect and pink and white and right...then I wake up...cause its all a lie...when its dark...sometimes...

    thanks pd, but in as much as I want to be part of the family-I don't want anyone to pity me..I must earn it on my own...I'd rather you told me to get over myself because that's what I would have told myself...

    cool!

    lo'

    Lo, you are getting over yourself...you are purging yourself through your prose. It's the best form of therapy that I know...I enjoy your writing as well. Peace.

    truly you are touched by GOD's spirit

    for you saw right through my post

    Destee's poets had this discussion not long
    ago in the Questions and Comments forum

    a new poet pointed this out to some of the
    old poets from afronet by posting a topic
    which stirred up quite a lot of emotions

    often new poets stray and stop posting
    completely therefore some of us choose
    not to even waste our time

    it truly does take time for respect and sincerity
    to be earned

    i remember telling mslusciousb that sometimes
    i don't post a reply simply because my reply
    would not be sincere just as you have pointed
    out

    you would rather that i gave you the truth than
    shown you pity

    in philippians 2:1 on True Humility

    quote: "Live in harmony by showing love for
    each other. Be united in what you think as if
    you were one person. Don't be jealous or
    proud, but be humble and consider others more
    important than yourselves. Care about them as
    much as you care about yourselves and think the
    same way Christ Jesus did:"


    this poetry forum isn't about getting the most
    replies or who has the largest fan base among
    registered users it's about relationships and you are no
    less apart of this family whether you were old or new :)
