    SPRUNG

    Intoxicated
    Mind, body and spirit
    In the daytime I think about him
    At night I pray for him
    The moment he left was the hour I cried for him
    He caressed my dreams
    Encouraged honesty
    revealing my emotions
    I sat upon my ***
    So happy and free

    But now that he’s gone
    I’m in mourning
    Sipping on chardonnay until 2 in the morning,
    When my alarm clock for work is set for three
    Always thirsty
    Dying without him
    Feeling incomplete

    I smoked a whole pack of cigarettes with just one match
    No courage to put the fire out
    Images of him reaching for me in the flame
    Burning in my heart for an eternity

    I drove drunk to his house in the misty rain
    Listening to an old Brenda Russell song on v103
    Piano’s in the dark playing to the rhythm of my teardrops
    Trying to function
    Swerving from lane to lane
    Hoping the police take a detour for the sake of loves pain

    My clothes didn’t match
    Hair tangled in grief
    My make-up ran below sea level
    My eyes cried tears
    only the deceased could hear me

    Driving with the blindfolds of his memory
    The pleasures of pain strangle reality
    Questioning his love for me with my last breath
    Emotions devouring me
    No escaping
    Hanging on to his last word
    His final thought
    The expression on his face the day he left me

    I parked my car along his footsteps
    As Brenda Russell continued to play
    Climbed out of the car window in desperation
    Stood hopelessly in the rain
    Screamed out his name
    Hoping he hears me
    Wishing that maybe,
    he'd come back to me

    Surely his return
    will be like an reunion
    of fun to grasp & reside
    he's near deep down inside
    smile , stand theirs a plan
    of thy Man his face in place

    As i sit listening to Toni Braxton
    Breath again & B.McKnight
    Love of my life
    as the night come to a close
    chi-lites cry Oh Girl

    Even he may not be but know
    he speak as da stylistics i hear
    this sound playin now
    You make me feel brand new
    as u fall asleep.

    flow on sista i'm loving ya tune....

    My favorite line is, "I smoked a whole pack of cigarettes with just one match."
    now that's smoking and so is your piece. This work definitely has some great emotion!
