Visitation Hours

Tucked away
Deep inside
Memories of you
Reside

The connection
The passion
The flow


It sneaks up
Reminding me of us

That strange union
Of poetry and spirituality

Your essence lingers
Sometimes
At the tip
Of my nostrils


I inhale
Exhale
And shake
At times

You inside me
Me wrapped
Around you

You mused the
Shit out of me
I cannot deny it

Tucked away
Memories of you
Ride

I am big enough
To admit
Acknowledge
You will be
A part of my soul

No matter
How hard I fight
Forgetting you
Disliking you
Whatever lil love
We had
Still has
A place in me

And I cannot let
It all go
It helped
Define me
I got my flow
Back

Right in the square
Pocket of my soul
You will always
Have a place

I miss you
And sometimes
I open this space
Embrace
And then say
Goodbye
Until
The next time

That's the stuff right there! After that line, I was yours.

Peace and Love,
