babylon release the cure

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 8:57 AM
you must stop and listen to this.

this my redemption song Jah Cure's voice is so beautifully painful, like a shower that stings, steam seeping into your pores. i imagine him sitting in his cell composing this. i imagine my beloved writing letters to this riddim. we used to listen to this song all the time in our apartment in brooklyn. before he got lock up. before our life changed. my beloved is jamaican. the fire in his voice is so undeniable, so sexy. you can't deny the longing, the wanting. it is how i feel each and every time i hear this song. each time i put pen to paper and pour out words of wanting, of waiting and faithfulness, i listen to this song.

and i remember

    It's a beautiful song. I'm so encourged by your story. The Love that you two have is strong and it takes a women of strength and courage to be who you are being for him and your son.

    My woman is from Jamaica. The sound of her voice sustains me. It has too.
