    maybe as i held your hand
    and led you
    to destiny...
    we both were
    lost in love's grip
    as we danced away
    carelessly...
    me drunk off you,
    you
    drunk
    off me...
    "this is how it should be"
    you nonchalantly whispered
    to me...
    if one wish could
    make time
    freeze..
    then grant my request
    and we'll live for this
    moment
    momentarily


    i've been known to be
    a fool...
    and such a fool i was for
    believing in you...

    i'm drunk.... i am
    cant remember ****
    but through blurred visions
    i see you and
    him...
    i see you and
    him...
    i see you and
    him become
    one...through
    missionary...
    just the other day
    i confessed to you
    my love...though
    missionary...

    ironically...very

    i'm all drained
    out...
    flushed 6 away, to keep from blowing
    my brains
    out...
    pleasant memories of me and you
    wont stay
    out...
    tonight i danced in the rain hoping to rinse
    the pain
    out...
    didnt **** work, pulled the
    cocaine
    out...
    suicidal off 2 or 3
    snorts...
    i never cried like this
    and never been
    so hurt...
    i never felt so empty
    and i never so strongly
    remorse...the past
    when you use to
    hold me
    when i was a homeless
    fiend...
    you gave me your all
    and i imbue into you, nothing but
    lifeless dreams...
    you use to hold
    me
    and we were
    so close
    you use to hold me
    everytime i wonder closely
    into a overdose....
    you was my
    god...
    "alexuz i will always
    worship you"
    i guess in your heart
    i always
    torture you...

    i'm crushed without you

    i cant get the sight
    out of my head...
    your legs...
    wrapped around his body
    in our bed...
    the sounds of the heavy breathing
    and you holdin
    his hands...
    both eyes locked into
    one another
    bodies sweating...
    i wish i was dead
    i wish you was dead
    but a wish like that
    is only a
    sin...
    for if it wasnt for you
    i wouldnt be
    living...

    i just wanna die in the ashes of poetry
    i written for you...
    i wanna burn in the flames of love
    i had for you...
    i wanna suffocate in the smoke of passion
    i had for you...
    i just wanna die in the poems
    the poems i wrote
    for you...

    i dont care if it doesnt make
    sense


    the day i confessed my love for you
    was the day you went deaf
    to the words i
    spoke...

    i want to
    die...
    after believin in love (her)
    i have lost all desire
    to fly...

    this is what it sounds like when i poet cries




    a keystyle i just did, about me and my girl. just had to get it off my chest.

    wow! dis was well felt
    i've been down this highway
    i've seen it and the tears of
    a trail left behind
    my mental hood finally took
    hold and i weep not
    i know so well the sound of a poet's cry.

    very heartfelt flow and the depth of reality

    Whoa........this is..... what it sounds like when I poet cries...
    you've definitely filled my heart with your tears as I held on
    to each word, the pain unfolding..........this was felt
    on so many levels.........I'm speechlessly feeling the emotion...

    Very real & moving...

    when poets cry
    loneliness fills the atmosphere
    and stills the night
    'til release makes right
    the terrible plight of
    the poet who cries.

    i don't mean to make light of your situation, brutha poet. there is sadness in your heart and emptiness in your soul. but know that there is healing in knowing that you've experienced a love like no one else has experienced. and knowing such a love, can you deny it...again? instead of crying in the sorrow of its ending...why not rejoice in the knowledge that God gave you what you needed at the time--someone to get you through the night...and away from the pipe--someone to make you strong, again...to make you WHOLE, again.

    when poets cry
    there are rains on the earth
    from all the tears shed
    by saddened angels
    who tremble at the sadness of
    the poet who cries.


    to channel such energies into the river that flow, YOU ARE AN AMAZING POET.

    know that...and let the tears cleanse your soul...for the next one who comes your way.:)
