Love Suite I: New Love

I want I want I want NEW LOVE, still fresh and vacuum packed in it's wrapper love. I want the anticipation of grabbing the tab, pulling off the bow, unwrapping my new love like a child with birthday dreams.

I wanna gush and grin at the prospect of having it new, having it first, having it only. Yeah big boy toy, new car smell, flat screen high def goodness with kickin' surround sound, dual overhead cams of love, twin turbo thrust that torques me out of my mind, standin' there, layin' there with "aww shucks hyuck."

When she arrives and we start to vibe, listen: I want that crackish love. That love that has me talking about everynothing on the phone til 3:30 AM when I know I got ta get up at 4:30 AM. And when I do get up if I ever get down, I ain't even tired because it's that Red Bull love that she be providin', that Pimp Juice, Rock Star, Jolt, Monster love.

Floatin' through my day wishin' I was lovin' her for pay, wantin' it to be my job I say. Not just my legs but my breath comes in pants and it is rationed at levels inversely proportioned to her...exhales. This love, this breath-less-ness, calls the heart aside and says, "beat like this", it's all heavy and slowquick African tempo with it's comforting annoyance broadcasting from it's northward residence in my throat whenever I think of her, this brand new love. And when I do settle down at night it's her love, this love that is keepin' me awake, robbing me of my chance to dream of her, weave mental futures with her, until the vision of her, the fantasy of her, the essence of her hypnotizes my psyche, bringin my heart into normal sinus rhythm, yeah V-Tach, sound track to my fantareality of...us.


I want us to laugh and talk about the effects of this love, for her to say, "I know your joint but let me tell ya 'bout MY story of love. I'm agonizing over my choice of scent of the day, will it be work or will it be play? I more than usual care about the color I wear wanting to brand your brain with this vision of love. It trips my mind to come to realize that your touches cause giggles, your kisses cause wiggles and your skills cause jiggles. New love, new love, you got ooh, ooh, ooh, OOH love, and I ain't even shame Luv. Because an emotional vacay from this world and this life is what I want with you Love, where cherubs sing, trees bend to give shade and waves lap lovingly at our sand encrusted feet. Heart shaped clouds and tropical breezes fill this bubble that shuts out the universe and locks in the...love, new love, I have for you NEW LOVE."

Yeah that's what I want, mmmm that's what I crave. Can it be a thang between me and you girl?

Femigog said...

Wow! You have got to stop doing this to us! Wonderful!

Sojourner G said...

@Angelia-Chile I get EXCITED about love, in ALL it's many forms and expressions, but there's just something about that brand new love..."like new car smell!" MMM! Don't get me started!

@Pahtnah-As Frankie Beverly says, "Aww bless ya heart!"

@CAP-Sis, I truly believe that my mission in blog world is to share the Word. In today's day and age, one must be creative and meet people where they are. But as your research may one day prove, that is the way it always was. The bible was written for the common man, not the scholars. Fishermen and tent makers and carpenters were inspired by God (2 Tim 3:16) to write nearly all of the New Testament.

I believe if you take bits and pieces of love, relationships, joys, pains, regrets and other vicissitudes of life, many of which we ALL experience, and show that God has ALREADY spoken on it, thats a way people can be led to Him and become saved. There's little that any of us that write can write that God has not already addressed. Linking the words to the Word is my passion.

If what I write has caused you to pick up your bible even once, the glory belongs to God and the privilege belongs to me.

May the Lord bless you in your studies and know that I am always available if you want to take them to the next level.

forget what you wrote, this line spoke to me:

the glory belongs to God and the privilege belongs to me.

Now that's what I'm talking about. That sums up how I've often felt when accolades are bestowed upon me for something He gave me the power to do.

Lyrically speaking said...

Beautiful post!! I am hungry for that kind of love *sigh*

Strength/Courage/Wisdom said...

Loves it! You said everything that is on my mind. Thanks for sharing.

lea78 said...

that was nice and a new love is the best love. I thought I was reading Don's work at first. you men are seductive now days. mental not to self. stay away from a man who can sway me with his words :)

MzPoetiK said...

Beautiful words...

Sojourner G said...

@Rich-Soldier, "He must increase, but I must decrease" John 3:30

@Lyrical-The feast is served.

@SCW-You know what they say about great minds. I'm glad mine is like yours ;)

@Lea-I keep trying to adopt Don as my brother from another mother! New Love is surely wonderful, but by definition, it is only a beginning (there are actually two more in the series). Comfortable Love and Old Love will give young buck a run for its money ;)

Note to you: If a man (in general) CAN sway you with his words, check him out! If there is substance there...and I mean REAL substance, you might have a keeper there that you might otherwise have avoided. I thought I might return the visit but...

@Mzpoetic-Spoken from one who would surely know. Thank you.

"I want that crackish love".

Brilliant!

lea78 said...

sorry that you couldn't return the visit, but now you are welcome to stop by and input anytime. I must warn you that at times I am a freak and then in the next second I am a bitch. I prefer to mix the two together and just be a freaky bitch. Just playin, come on by
