Title: Harmony with you (poem)
Even in darkness,
Would have me whole
Long past when my bones mark me old
even still i would be in perfect
harmony with you,
As my grip arthritically lock in perfect position from this exact overuse,
of spending my days being wrapped around you.
Could never let you go,
that is my truth
Would confess it under oath even
If a fire squad was prepared to aim and shoot,
if i even hinted at that this love
crafted by god and hand wrapped as a gift within me to only be unpackaged by your hands.
still i’d swear that my purpose was solely fashioned to be your man.
even to die behind your name under such a narrative: an honor.
May i fade to blackness feeling a fall into a heaven a tenth as sweet as the sweat from your bonnet.
May forever simply be millions of renditions of the singing of a sonnet,
Written and performed by the angels over how i waited for you to love me.
How i prayed that the feel of your presence would forever touch me.
How we looked into each others eyes and the trust in our shared gaze let you know I was ready to protect and serve.
How I feared no man ever again the moment my lips touched your skin, Uncertainty was removed: for I knew to cherish all that you are, are not, ever cared to be was my sole purpose in experiencing earth.
