happy valentines day?

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 9:12 PM

dear beloved,

today left me
wanting to feel
something that felt
like you

your voice met me
easing into palms
every inch of
distance evaporating

honeyed recitation
chant to gods
of love and war:

break down the walls
break down the walls
break down the walls

between my lips
and yours

    That poem speaks volumes..not only for your situation but for many (including mine). Wonderful/Powerful.
    Thanks for stopping by my spot. Come back anytime. I used to read you all the time...I need to make my way back around in blogtown.
    I'm going to make a list of the Black History shows that I need to Tivo as well.
    Have a great day sis.
