    the invitation still stands
    but can you deal with the
    complexities inside the shadows
    upstairs in my attic?

    you said you ain’t afraid
    of heights
    and your mental welcomes
    changes in attitudes
    challenges in altitudes

    but gravity may
    loose us from its grip
    and the weightlessness
    of our souls
    might be the only
    ground we can cling to

    so
    can you fly with me?
    far out and beyond ecstasy?


    ain’t go’n lie
    I ain’t neva been
    'cept in my dreams
    it’s a place
    where pain tempts
    pleasure to fulfill its
    wildest exploits

    canyoubewithmeblending
    into mind twisting unending
    screams where not even
    coitus interrupts us?

    where our mutuality
    gratifies
    mind/soul
    through
    extreme physicality?


    the invitation still stands
    but can you guide my flow
    and allow me to
    lead your follow
    up the ladder to the roof
    just outside the trap doh
    of my attic?

    where the shadows
    mirror our images
    and cast the reflections
    against the walls…
    reverberating/
    beating /but never
    repeating our
    wet secrets?

    I just

    come here to get a glimpse of what heaven must be like. And if he don't accept this invitation...with all respect due, I would fly anywhere with one as angelic as you.

    Alyce I liked this one all the way through. I like the invitation inside as well as the challenge you hide in these words so cleverly implied. And the twists of the words you use to describe. I could read and re-read and learn and learn from you.

    Sister Poet alyce,

    Let me exit the archives before I bump every poem of yours in here. Talk about lyrical fierceness...you're about to make me cast my pen in the sea. Loving every word of your work my eyes touch. Your poems are so alive and dance through the screen. Is the book available?
