    He's mine.
    Mine.
    I have known him for an hour now
    Well that's how long the conversation was.
    Filled me with a passion that will not be erased
    Touched my heart with long supple fingers
    Of passionately erupted soul from between
    Newly licked moist thick lips
    And dropped sugar tainted berries of wisdom
    Onto my navel. They rolled up my front
    Defying gravity.
    They slid into me like
    food through the
    umbilical. And he fed me with them until I was full.
    Yearning for desert I implored him to stay.
    Asked him questions that would perch him higher
    In the branches of my mind...
    So I would not forget him.
    I must have met him in a past life time.
    He must be my soulmate.
    Or maybe my soul just wants to mate
    Be entwined, and fully encompassed by his essence.
    He is mine.

    ...dropped sugar tainted berries of wisdom
    Onto my navel. They rolled up my front
    Defying gravity.
    They slid into me like
    food through the
    umbilical. And he fed me with them until I was full.


    Those words exploded in my mind, sent a shiver down my spine, and gave me one helluva flashback! I salute you, skillful poet!:toast:

    I cannot even begin to tell you how you wrapped each phrase so tightly around my being, then dared me not to feel it! I can relate, my sista! This is too real to me. :heart:

    Thank you
