XOXO... for Asami
Unspoken words that will be manifested in these verses ,
loving verbs expressed in these cursive,
I wanted to open my rib cages ,
to absorbed all your hurt,
and take the weight off your shoulder blades.
Beautiful black woman ;
I wanted to be your sunshine
Every time you experienced a black cloud .
I wanted to catch every black tear,
before they stained your dairy pages.
I wanted to know all your pretty little fears,
as they little that you revealed,
Were like music to my ear.
I have wisdom like Solomon,
but I ran out of ideas ,
to show you how much this griot really cared.
I got a glimpsed of your beautiful black soul ,
and it was hard to let go ,
Love liberates and fear cripples.
so I loosen my grip ,
felt like I was suffocating you ,
so I gave the last ounce of air out my lungs,
to be the wind beneath your wings.
I saw a queen in you,
the entire universe was bloomed in you ,
I still want you to bloom,
even if I am not the one watering your moon.
You could have bloom my 3rd eye out
or blew my 3rd eye out ,
all when I blew your black back out ,
Be a bolster , a plastic for ever blister
your summer rain , in every drought.
I hate to sound sexual,
but I would have spammed you ,
until it changed your mood.
Many times I shrunk my ego and compromised ,
just to have a view,
I have mapped out constellation and sailed many seas,
But life currents kept leading me back to you.
So I pray you catch a wave,
until you meet the you in you .
I just want what's best for you....
