    what are these
    ...these
    conglomeration of letters
    grouped together?

    do they make words?

    do the words express thoughts
    thoughts that capture emotions
    emotions that move the spirit to another plane of existence

    do they?

    as i travel from one thought to another
    moving from letter to letter
    i begin to see
    ...to feel
    these captured emotions swell in me

    can you see?
    can you see?

    are they in you, too?

    what are these
    ...these

    well, you know what i mean.

    lines

    appear to me
    as thoughtful words
    expressions formed
    creatively like maples
    tapped from a tree
    enriched tastefully
    until ripe

    these things
    touching MY heart
    reading MY mind
    making ME look
    gotta find
    how you knew
    to blend

    ...these
    conglomeration of letters
    grouped together


    inside of me

    capturing thoughts
    emotions
    creating smiles
    tears flow

    cause ...

    how do you do that?

    :heart:

    delightful one/child of destiny

    i count these letters
    count one
    count two
    bring them together
    like smiles and joy do
    we take in emotions
    they're not something unknown
    then spit out some rhymes
    off the top of our dome
    acknowledging love
    recognizing respect
    QUEEN sistha
    KING brutha
    i'll never neglect
    the fever of creation
    that all of us know
    as the wheels of life churns
    and we create a nice flow.

    i count these letters
    count three
    count four

    ....hmmm.

    THANKS, YO'
