    "If I could compose sonnets to the sparkle in your eyes, and dwell in the beauty of basking in your light, let me live inside a single pure thought of your mind, manifest me as your springtime blossom, let me sing you a summertime wind song, I could be the beauty of your dusky twilight skies, Kisses like butterfly wings and silk, I am simply warmed by the vibrations of the blood beating in your veins, that chants an ancient melody, calling back the memories of a time when you and I were stardust in the essence, and now we live to be a blessing....and I could only call you God, because you are the light that sparks my skies with every sunrise...."

    Yesterday this was a poem
    Now breath becomes memory as I hear lonely hearts sigh
    Too many lifetimes spent traveling over the nexus of the Universe
    In search of the perfect soul mate
    Yet human nature knows not perfection
    Could we learn to appreciate beauty even with the flaws
    Realistically nothing is perfect and even though I am divine
    Sometimes I still find myself in the midst of a struggle
    A battle for self
    Sometimes too stubborn, too prideful, too much denial
    Too tender, too naive, too trusting, too human for those with lofty ideas
    Of what I should be
    Yet each morning brings me closer to the next step in my evolution
    Life unfolds its lessons and blessings
    I strive to elevate past the pains and past planes of my soul
    Some days I simply maintain
    When things become too difficult
    I am easily scarred, not easily broken
    Wondering if I could be the lifelong token of more than your affection
    Could we have supreme understanding
    Even though I be a wild child with sunshine smiles and spirit reminiscent
    Of revolutionaries, warrior women, and rainbow children
    I be an accumulation of collective soul
    Loving everything and everyone
    Yet choosing none to confine myself to
    Could you understand that my freedom is in being who I am
    Sometimes agree to disagree
    Allow room for my mistakes
    Have the patience to stand by me
    And not deny me when you feel justified in your judgments
    Honorable brother could you be father, confidant, friend and lover
    Sometimes I need a strong shoulder to lean on
    A firm chest to lay my head on
    A touch that silently tells me I can trust in you
    Sometimes I just need the solitude of silence
    Mutual understanding in our quiet breathing
    Words don't always have to be spoken
    In order for our thoughts to be heard
    Black King I would shower you with the purity of my devotion
    Love you like the first time I felt sunshine warm my face
    Into springtime rhapsody
    Love away the wintertime loneliness
    I know that has frosted both our souls so long
    Infinitely different yet one and the same
    If you were to call my name in telepathic wavelengths
    I would reply fluidly in the language of the Universe
    Close my eyes and will that you feel all the peace inside
    Let me share the best part of me with you
    Without restrictions
    Must we be constricted by differences?
    So many go searching for perfection
    Overlooking what is right
    God would you shine your light on me
    Even knowing that there are some things we do and see differently?
    Even knowing that the paths of destiny we choose may lead us on separate journeys?
    Could there be no sanctuary for us to find the peaceful denominator of kindred ship in one another?
    I could not ask that you sacrifice the essence of all that you have embraced
    All that you hold in high esteem and have integrated into your soul
    Are beautiful to me
    Sincere could you dare to love for the moment
    & make it a glorious melody of harmony between us
    Or will you simply blow away these musings as stardust
    Long forgotten on the cheeks of a wishful dream
    Weave it away into a tapestry of faded memory
    Simply forget that love came calling once again
    With the freshness of a summer breeze
    To ease you Son of Man
    I could understand the meditations of your heart
    You can no more deny the truth of who you are
    Than I can
    So I ask.....
    Is there a possibility for us
    Or shall we orbit the Universe in solitude once more
    Searching for perfection
    When there is none to be found
    Except for in the flawed beauty
    Of our own complexity of humanity and divinity
    Yesterday this was a poem
    Today it is the question of....
    The possibility of Love.....

    i hear the melody
    of your words
    the deep feeling
    the total expression
    and the affection
    this is very wonderful
    quote:"Yesterday this was a poem"
    Peace
