I suspect you will weep
Maybe you are meant to battle
With your senses
Even with achy joints
You find a way to speak to me
Through your pores
The scent of earth and basil
Sends me running to you
Mind tags along
Clings to your shirt
Begging for one last dance
The love letter you never received
is tucked between my breasts
Specially packaged with my heart
Throat is tied with your memories
Lingers with sadness
Everything is as you left it
Can I bring back the dawn with your kisses?
You were easy to paint
Fingers on honey brown skin
The texture as if you never left

ANNUAL HARLEM ART AND BOOK FAIR - SATURDAY
I'll be at the Harlem Book Fair this Saturday, 7/21/07, selling my books and paintings, the fair is free to the public. If you're not able to attend, feel free to browse at my other blog "Paint Out Loud", all prices include shipping and handling.
The Harlem Art and Book Fair is being held on 135th Street between 5th and 7th Avenues from 11am-6pm. I'm sharing a booth with my sister who will be selling greeting cards, magnets and dolls.
Stop by to say hello...it would be nice to finally meet some of my blogger friends.
Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together
