    In all things
    I am human
    A stubborn lil boy
    Wrapped tightly in the thick skin of a man
    Who’s much too young for Viagra
    To increase my drive
    However, I need no man made pesticide
    Not to bring my love alive
    No, my love is all-natural
    My search eternal
    Like the quest of a fruit picker
    Waking each morn
    When the sun has yet to
    Brush its rays in the silver water mirror
    In these budding hours and humid seconds
    I run madly through the orchard looking for you
    Your scent so fresh and luring
    That my nostrils instantly translate to my mind
    That you are not the right one, but
    The ripe one for me
    Soon I find you
    With scars
    A few bruises
    From harsh handling over the years
    But you are still perfect
    The very fruit of the Garden of Eden
    And like Adam
    I would risk banishment
    Give up Heaven
    Just to hold you in my hands
    Just to see what love
    Tastes like.

    Wow, this was beautiful. Your imagery and word choice was astounding. You made me envision a search for a peach that's not without its blemishes, but perfect for you. Always a pleasure to read you, poet.

    Hey Tha-Emissary
    This is so beautiful,
    Oh it speaks to me so clearly
    That search for the one.
    That special one is a journey worth taking
    and moving toward.
    Very nice poet. sigh!

    Peace~N~Love
