    You keep looking

    for them

    behind the back
    of a new day

    You don't need a passport
    to cross scattered continents

    just simply REACH
    the rest of me
    I'm only 940 miles
    and 5 northern states away

    I give answers that you already
    know
    but you keep questioning
    the ans(her) of .... (intent)

    Aren't eye the cure
    for love's addiction?

    you with - - drawing

    yet? ...

    This is not why I have come...

    I have come

    to tell you that I have come ...

    On my way to you
    I noted an eclipse that
    covered your brightest hopes

    Yes --

    I have come

    ... and now that I am here
    before you I stand exposed
    in true nakedness

    I have had a safe journey
    although my fears have
    mounted against me

    Travelling for 18 hours
    from snow lined parkways
    to desert alleys
    anxious to meet the ghost
    of a gypsy
    who drinks the wine
    until he's drunk

    intox-eye-cated with
    smooth words
    that interest his


    knowing


    No one ever told me that
    this ghost would haunt
    me in my womanhood
    or in tomorrow's memories

    you're taunting my emotions
    in day dreams

    YOU ... he .... HE .... you

    -- maybe I should go to
    sleep?

    I'm scared-

    Fear does not acompany
    me to bed ...

    -- say my prayers
    save my prayers

    Kiss you in my subconscious
    then search for the sun in your eyes
    and bask in the meadows of
    your conscience

    You ask so many things
    yet the answers abide in
    each prose

    *Love never comes home

    (re arrange and re member)


    ....... *aim ...... I am



    I am coming back


    home



    Here lies the answer in
    the right words of a left
    composition

    Tuck some of your wishes
    inside the pocket of your jacket
    along with a few visions
    and
    when we meet
    you can share your thoughts
    over a glass of me
    at the bar -- of in/tro/duc/tion

    There is a Tea Room
    that was
    dedicated to your
    pseudo (name) sake and
    I'd like to visit there...

    Painted murals do not
    indicate a con spear a see
    sold over-the-counter on a
    reversed letter - cultural district
    ~thats historic

    ... made history -

    (re arrange and re member)


    Um ............ ELL .........


    you

    inhale

    so

    Deep


    ... then again ...

    exhale
    while holding me between
    your forefinger and thumb

    smoke and enjoy~

    sweet release ...

    Now can you hear
    my soul responding


    ???
