    I want to write the perfect poem for you
    But a …
    Perfect poem is so hard to do
    How does one construct words
    To replicate the beauty of you
    Mirror the strength of your human spirit
    How do I…cause the ink to flow
    So artfully…that
    It captures your smile like an impressionistic painting
    How do I write the perfect poem
    When it has been personified
    In the remarkable mind of one human being…
    How do I thank God…for forming you
    In the image of his awesome omnipotence & power
    How can….the mere structure of a stanza
    describe the warmth epicentered in your kiss
    or tell the world how….Martha’s Vineyard sands
    Feel beneath our feet…as the sun disappears into the horizon
    I want to write…the perfect poem
    But the words race around me…so galactically
    …your aura is like a flying comet
    An eclipse of my poetic talent
    Because…anything less than a perfect tribute to you
    Would seem amiss…and a poor attempt
    to which I could not forgive…myself
    I want to sing like Billie Holiday
    And tell the world…how you make my blues funky
    and leave my jazz…stoked and smoking
    or how…You
    Pierce the obscurity of my insecurities
    Minister to me…
    from the greatest book of biblical poetry
    Holding bedroom revivals
    Where all key scriptures are found
    in the book of “Song of Solomon”
    You leave me renewed
    and rest upon my soul…like the morning dew
    From my oral song of indulgence
    you fall sensually like soft syllables
    And I can only question…
    Why??? The words are too inadequate
    To replicate the scent of your Macedonian Ambrosia
    I no longer want…I need
    to form the perfect poem in honor of you
    Place your image on a verbal potter’s wheel
    And wet the essence of you down
    With my sex appeal and never-ending will…
    Pleasing you…and kneeling at the feet of your dreams
    Tis my quest to breathe the beat of my heart
    into every consonant…
    Run my tongue down the nape the alignment
    …My love is so high, it’s like insanity
    A beautiful soliloquy of madness
    Straight jacketed…
    In a padded room of unending ecstasy
    And I don’t care if they call me crazy
    Because if loving you sends me spinning
    and falling, and diving over the edge of normalcy
    Well that’s just where destiny intended for me to be
    Spending a lifetime…writing on the back of eternity
    In search of the perfect poem
    That will echo throughout the universe
    …just how
    Incomparable your existence is in this world
    “ So with this pen…I vow to write”
    Until my lungs …can no longer exhale the verse
    My withering, aging hands can no longer hold the pen
    And my fading eyesight… blurries the words
    Because a love this deep deserves a life long commitment
    To writing the perfect love…in perfect harmony
    With you and I…between the lines
    …joined as one

    The perfect poem

    Sage, your words still capture the depths of that feeling...that feeling that just makes the reader wince when they read your scribes. Wonderful to read you again poetess.
