    We Share a Poem

    “So, I heard you write poetry?”
    he said
    “Yeah, I do”
    He smiles and responds
    “Wow, that’s amazing, I do too”
    “Oh my God, really you do?”

    I think I am falling in love with falling in love with
    you
    But I am a slave to Father Time that reminds me
    constantly;
    It’s only been a week or two since I first laid my
    eyes on you

    When the harshness of reality moistens my cheeks
    with the rough texture of lives
    Injustices, you took my face into your soft hands
    and caressed it,
    You blew my tears of weariness away with the
    power of your words

    You wrote me a poem
    “Latisha, no matter what happens, what you do,
    where you go, what you try
    I want you to remember I’ll always be by your side”

    I know this might sound like another cliché love
    scene in an old romance novel hidden in a school girl’s crush
    But it soothes me; it soothes me that in the deepest
    core of my heart, I knew it wasn’t a lie
    I froze my tears, cease to cry
    I smiled and thought about when you hold me

    You hold me so tight as if you could insert your
    heart into mine
    And create one heart beat
    You would
    Not only that but more as if you could get deep
    inside my soul
    Where no man has ever dared journey, you would
    pack up
    Your gear, kiss your friends and family Good-bye
    and come into me

    You locked your fingers between mine so tightly I
    couldn’t escape your grasp, not that I really wanted
    to anyway
    Then you’d say to me,
    “We were meant to be, look how they fit perfectly”

    He said,
    I wanna know you; I wanna make you happy, I
    wanna fall in love with you”
    I know cliché, right?

    “Sometimes I feel so invisible” I would confess to
    him
    “You’re not invisible; sometimes you are all I see”
    Cliché, Cliché, Cliché

    Do I make you happy? He asked me
    I smiled and replied, “Yes, yes, yes you do”
    “You’re a princess, you know that?”
    I said,” I think you’re amazing”

    The next day I gazed into his warm eyes and
    whispered into his ears,
    Are you ready to write that poem?”

    P.S- The person who I wrote this poem about seriously broke my heart a couple of weeks later, but at least I got some really beautiful poems out of the experience.

    The poem is fabulous. It is full and real ... and just like life. Interesting how even though loving someone who leaves you can be devistating, they also leave something behind ... in this case, a blessing of poetry. Thank-you for sharing, Latisha.
