    midnight's


    descend clothed me


    in darkness,


    stilling


    the process of


    you giving up on us


    but


    it was useless


    when


    dawn's ascend


    stripped me naked with


    a


    vengeance


    that ache-quaked


    my being





    it's


    no longer there


    your...


    sugary, salty taste


    that clung to my tongue


    long after our orgasms sprung





    imprints


    of your fingertips


    were fading fast from my skin





    survival


    instinct kicked in


    summoning daydreams to


    pull down my eyelids and project


    memorable moments with you


    but


    souldeep your absence


    persistently


    abuse my senses


    the words,


    {{YOU'RE. GONE. FOR. GOOD.}}


    beated against


    my eardrums resounding thoughts of


    your scent, I'll never take in again


    or


    feel the heat of your kiss


    on my lips





    each


    footstep


    taken, led you away


    trampling my heart into


    an


    unrecognizable rhythm


    from the way


    it used to beat


    for only


    you





    I


    feel


    the slowing


    of your loveflow


    through my vains and hear the


    weakening beeps


    I


    know


    our flat line


    is just a matter


    of time...


    love's death is near


    and


    I


    don't know


    rather to, just let us


    rest in peace


    or


    do my best


    and try to resurrect


    us.





    Coco :dance:

    the resurrection cometh

    the rebirth
    is but a "move to you" away
    from yesterday's worth

    captured dreams
    motivated by
    flowing streams
    of "what we did"
    and "what we had"
    and all the bad things
    that no longer exist
    and moments of everyday wonder
    i sorely miss those
    captured dreams

    a ten-call-a-day relation
    with all night conversations
    trying to convey what's on my mind
    all the time
    massaging the heartstrings
    of true love's kiss
    that i sorely miss

    bring back the days of
    "hello," as my wake up
    and "goodbye," as my goodnight
    and every creative word i liked
    coz it was you

    my true
    souldeep
    wonderful friend
    an "us" that can never end

    the resurrection cometh

    here...i stand.

    waiting.

    Yes,

    here...you stand

    close, so close the way you used to

    giving my heart a flutter

    of hope



    all those

    hellos and goodbyes

    are what brought us through our nights

    and woke us to face dawn



    I couldn't have without you

    it's

    what frightened

    me most

    but,

    here...you stand

    a

    man

    who knows me

    souldeep, intimately

    offering a kiss we both solely miss



    the cost

    of time spent together

    too valuable to, just let us

    rest in peace

    we've paid the price for a second chance

    at eternity

    so

    here... you stand

    massaging heartstrings,

    filling chambers with your

    vital wordflow

    "an 'us' that can never end"

    thoroughly through my veins

    resurrection is near

    recognition of your rhythm

    {{I. am. coming. to.}}

    here...we stand

    together,

    against our flatline



    revived



    Baller, you know how your words used to do me.
    Thanks for always helping me release my ink. :)

    aaahhhhh....

    the beep beep beep of heartbeats stomping
    with souls drumming
    to the rhythm of souldeep loving
    coz kissing cousins be on the menu
    these days.:)

    we've played all day games
    with make-believe fame
    coz we wanted to be like them
    ...like cinderella and her prince
    charming in my defense of
    "say my name...say my name"
    in written word games
    when "whats'up" was all we needed
    to convey what was, or wasn't, heeded
    'til we deleted
    (the bs)

    i stand
    on firm and solid ground
    waiting for our second go round
    coz the first was **** good
    nearly fifteen years of laughs
    and we still could

    fUsE.:)

    Thanks for the journey. we'll do us soon.
