    illuminata is his name
    i bask in his radiance.

    i am naked
    and vulnerable because i know he can see the I AM in all that I AM.

    i feel one with him because we fit deeply

    i look at him and i know he's so close to being the apple of my eye...................
    or is it my cherry?
    either will do.

    just want to be near him
    listen to his flows
    on all the things he knows
    to be true
    legalized psychological genocide and racism just a few

    everyday i cross paths with those who'd like to fill his shoes yet i remain unmoved
    never cared much for sheep.

    lonely
    i cry every night
    longing for you. looking for you. holding out for you.

    so where are you illuminata?


    THERE IS A GOD...

    He has blessed me today...

    Illuminata is his name
    i bow to him in silence

    his Agape
    got me
    cry'n like a baby
    got me
    think'n like maybe
    I'll be the one...

    illuminata
    didn’t just listen
    he L I S T E N E D
    to every beat
    of this blistering heat
    ive walked thru
    for 27 years....

    helping me make sense
    of a world that don't...

    Loving me
    mentally
    lifting me
    spiritually
    through and through
    touching me poetically kinetically

    And that's just the beginning....

    feel me?...

    here i stand
    armws strecthed wide
    so that you can
    enter my world
    and i can embrace
    you with that's
    within me
    consumes me,
    creates me,
    incites me,
    to love thee
    in ways no other can

    here i am holding you close
    whispering in your ear
    love you eternal...

    Illuminata

    be his name and the blending of your souls consummates what God has blessed ~ He carefully prepared both of you to receive the 'best'...

    and the twain shall become one flesh...

    Illuminata be now YOUR name.

    This is beyond beauty ms. wonder! :)

    Thank you

    happiness is in me
    when thoughts of you
    dances in my spirit
    shhh.can you hear it
    the moments of joy
    strumming melodies of
    tomorrow on the strings
    of my heart as the beat
    from my soul keeps the
    tempo and it is you whom
    i shall never let go...

    close your eyes,
    think of love,
    smile at joy,
    grin at today,
    rest in agape,
    bathe in blessed,
    walk in peace,
    reside in me...
