the fact is (i need you)

the fact is (i need you)

your light brings still life
into the midst of my chaos,
drowning out proverbial sayings
and extra voices meant to weigh down.
lifting me up, the waves of the minds disturbance
lap at your beautiful feet not reaching, drowning
my potentiality,
your soothing voice strokes my ego, and
i not only believe i can, but i know...

i know i need you,
i need your touch, similar to the suns pure rays
on beautiful golden days, my skin blushes, deepens at your love,
i know i need your hands,
strong, but gentle feeding me life’s manna
ackee, saltfish, dumplings, doesn’t matter,
i know i need your mind,
determined to love mine, no matter my womanly ways,
moods, and high heeled attitudes,
your soul, speaks to me when distance is between,
and tears guide curled wires
leading your sophisticated roses back to me.

gone are the days, you and i were non existent to each other
a mere thought in the smile of the almighty
now that you are in my world, girlish wrists will burn in an attempt
to hold on.
walking all eternity, swimming exposed in salty tears,
lying my mishapen thoughts out to wither and dry.
so deep is my need for you
proving that serenity does exist
outside of the mind and well wishes
of astounded dreamers counting stars in bright skies.

i stay feeling that way. and i just shivered cause that picture of you in the yellow reminded me of one of my ex girlfriends. like from that profile you look just like her..

not a bad thing, just been a long time since i've seen her or thought about her.
