I forgot what it felt like to
Wrap myself up in you….
I forgot what it was like to
Lose myself to you, so I lost…
Blinded by the flashing lights
Deafened by the tracks, the mics,
Novacane pouring through these pores,
Poor, poor numbskull…
Where did the feeling go?
What happened to the free? The flow?
Glitz and glitter don’t mean shit when the light shows..
Pull down my skirt, my roots were showing
Dig deeper, down and dirty, get to sowing
Sowing the same seeds of emotion that got me here
Hold steadfast to experience gained from the past
Dear prodigal child, welcome back
Come back home to the soulful duet of pen and paper
Come back home to the beat of your heart as you pounded
And pounded each emotion to every letter that made up every word
Run back when you begin to forget what got you there
Come back to the beginning..
Lay your head to rest on poetry’s breast
Let it nurture you back to health strong, and beautiful
