    What brought you from the
    south up to the north?
    Maybe it doesn't even
    matter now...
    I opened up my heart
    as I appeared before
    you baring my
    simplistic soul
    An auricle that felt
    relief meeting you
    and I told my mind
    that it was -alright- to
    send the guards away
    from protective soul duty
    for the day ~~
    Then I let you into my
    quiet sanctuary
    so that you could take
    a tour on the
    pathway to me
    lined with
    flower petals that
    dropped at your feet
    and spelled the words
    to international
    love signs
    ...at one time...
    I would have allowed
    you to walk through the
    tunnel of peace
    with a visa for
    safe passage
    overlooking previous
    reservations that at
    one time adorned
    the walls of this
    very tunnel --framed--
    regulations and bylaws
    hung in their decor
    as though they were
    art etchings drawn just
    for me by an artist amore;
    name withheld for anonymity
    ...a dust of drawings to
    symbolize years of
    love-loss inequities
    What do you want from me...?
    Taking me from the northern
    chill of an arctic blast
    to somewhere south of the
    border; introducing me
    to equatorial warmth
    ...so hot...that it scorched
    my heart with
    tempting heat waves
    I wish only to return to the
    comfort and the cold in the
    north pole where
    I sit high atop snow-capped
    mountains; worry-free from
    a tepid trekker on an exploration -
    ...where the temperature is
    cold and frigid there
    it's difficult for you
    to breathe ether...in my air ~~
    I'm closing off the path to my
    spirit and soul; you no longer
    are allowed to pass through
    because you interrupted the
    quiet of my sanctuary--with an
    unbareable lukewarm noise
    And I
    still don't know
    why you came here
    but I'm
    going to ask
    that you leave...

    N2....

    I will leave if you ask me to ;)
    But please allow me to stay
    And sit at the edge of line and verse
    With you
    To study the diagonal and the straight
    Of your words
    Leading to the circular and the curved
    Motions of your truths

    Brilliant!!

    *stay*
