    Get out of the sand
    and into my box
    wipe the dust from your
    hands and feet
    I've got some love to share with you
    is it still an open secret?

    While you've been busy
    making mud pies -
    I've been drawing lines in
    the sand...
    Arnaceous sketches
    tracing outlines of our
    past
    clearing granuls of
    shattered glass from our
    path... ready to
    ~make love to you; and
    ~receive love from you

    ... But first, you must get
    out of the sand and into my box
    wipe the sweat from your brow
    and clean the mist from your cheeks
    ~removing the sandstones from
    your heart by replacing them
    with fine gravel (me)...

    Let my soul's sweet
    condensation form
    tear drops of lust's higher love
    on your mahogany mind
    until they turn N2 hourglasses
    shaking away all references
    of time

    Together we build CASTLES ~~

    Why play in the sandbox alone
    when 'us' can be found
    on brown suga beaches
    with Obsidian osculating
    Midnight's mood until
    it becomes burnt almond
    and smoothes the
    surface of two
    backed into
    one

    without 'blue' impressions
    but with Blak~

    Alyce~

    You know that's the truth...can't even get any work done at work, simply because I'm wrapped up around the keyboard & monitor like I'm working for DESTEE/POETRY!! :D
