    777 days later...
    reminiscing on beer, wine
    & indian cuisine
    stimulating
    thought provoking conversation

    777 days later...
    your essence lingers
    lips pressed gently upon
    my own...
    my hunger grows

    777 days later...scarce
    sporadic conversational flows
    what the hell's going on...
    neither of us knows

    777 days later...
    recalling your voice whispering
    in my ear of visits in Spring
    realizing the REAL-I-TY of what we had...
    was nothing more than a fling

    777 days later...
    grown into a more mature woman
    woman of moral
    dreams desires goals aspirations

    Alone is NOT how I intend to
    grow old

    Truth be told
    I may not have realized then but
    I possess qualities that men would die for
    and I refuse to waste my time on someone
    looking for a free ride.

    So tell me...where do you want to go with this?​


    777 days later…

    from the day that

    produced a sweet kiss

    surely your appetite had

    been satisfied; for we had

    just met

    777 days later…

    although playful "you&I"

    games were played

    the realness was there

    it's the one thing that

    stayed

    777 days later…

    Hope was supposed to

    spring eternal for those

    lascivious "secret trysts"

    Yet the vibin' of mentals

    slowed and the convo

    was mos' definitely missed

    777 days later…

    I visualize the maturity in one

    I so affectionately call "Fri"

    Still in concert with her hunger

    and those fantasies of WE

    777 days later…

    When my telephone rings…

    I still smile when I realize

    it's she who thinks of us

    as merely a fling

    777 days later…

    you're really the same ol'

    "Afri"

    Since we're talkin' about

    truisms

    I still dig you as I think

    you do me

    So you tell me Ms. Dancr…

    Where shall we both go with this?

    I'd hate to have you thinkin'

    deception

    in spite of one

    real
    or was it an
    imagined
    yet
    unforgettable
    kiss?


    you ask where I want to go with this
    definitely not to
    another "Secret Tryst"
    and
    just for the record let me tell you this
    that "LIST" still does not Exist

    Free and preparing for a mate for life
    one who won't cause me emotional pain and strife

    You ask where I want to go with this but truthfully...
    it's not about what I, YOU or US
    Let's take it to GOD and ask HIM where HE wants to take US


    Yes, we must remember this

    A kiss is just a kiss

    777, 888, 999 days does not

    lead to enchanted bliss

    If it's meant to be, then

    by God's will it might

    Take comfort in

    your plan, HIS plan

    And surely "777" days

    will turn into "1" day

    but only if it's right...
