    An amalgamation of peace, stillness, and
    earl grey steamin' has my imagination
    re-creating you dancing on the strings of a violin
    causing it to moan making the sound drip
    out of the speaker

    I can do nothing but dance with your
    abstracted existence these serene sounds
    of cirulean blue peach and ecru
    smooths out the ache of missing you

    so I dance

    tears fall hitting the hard wood floor
    and spell your name ...since you loved
    anonymity I'll call you phenomenal
    twin of wonderful queen of my Hued-man
    "be"ing

    and you ruled the lands with a graceful hand

    dance imagination dance! take me to where
    she is somewhere over the rainbow over the clouds
    over pain over misery overjoyed she is that I
    have not forgotten her...

    the flames have learned my steps and create
    shadows of she and.......I on the walls intertwined
    interposing harmony between our intercoursing
    bodies and we sailed the course to the lands
    of Climax...I stood

    and watched body stuttering no longer able
    to keep it together and I cry 'til the memories
    are captured in the lava lamp of my remembrance
    of her rising descending body / warm / yet feel
    it I will no longer she has gone

    the lord needed an angel...at least that's what they
    say to ease the pain

    yet...her voice still remains
    and her touch I have trapped in the recesses
    of my skin and her soul is wed to
    mine...

    and I begin again to dance yet this
    time reality has captured me and I
    dance alone.

    love your work

    love your stamina
    love your support
    love your strength
    from one brotha to another

    and the one big thing i like about your work is you support the cause but can still write about love, but So'ja can write love but for some reason it doesn't come out the scars are omnipresent

    To all my peeps,

    To try and find superlatives to express how your words inspire me make a brother feel would be a waste of time, because what I feel when I read your replies can not be described.

    thank you, I stand humble before you all.

    one fam
    one love

    I chose not to read anyone else's replies to this...

    cuz I wanted to approach it with a " clear " head.

    and now, with a clear head, I honestly have no words
    for it.
    It reminds of the N.Y. undercover episodes when
    J.C. lost his girl -

    "that's what they say to ease the pain"
