Untitled

If he'd just say the words...
He vanquishes those question marks
Sealing the gaps and settles the iniquity that festers in a race never won.
He puts a conclusion to the stories I was told....making all the fairy tales true.
I spend each day devising new ways to say "Thank You"...
He knows I'm the perfect candidate...
I fulfill old expectations, make new ones, boost egos and heal souls... all before breakfast,
Because I'm that bad...and he's that worth it.
His voice pays homage to ideas configured in better times.
A compliment to a queen's standards...
He's what was needed when my majesty sat in rags,
Hopeless in the dungeons of empty homes.
More than a breath of fresh air,
He's the wisp of oxygen I searched for feverishly when I drowned,
And he continues to save my life.
I'm retiring my poker face because he's my partner.
He called my bluff and nurtured it...
I bowed out gracefully.
He's an accoutrement that never overshadows...
Sitting on my tongue as the coolness of wine,
I feel my heart digest him in agreement.
I'm trying to put a face to this energy,
And dare someone to tell me I can't

Hi!
He was walking by some blogs and found yours. I found it really special.
The songs are also very good, especially the track from Lauryn Hill, not my style as I recognize a good song.
Congratulations, Micheli, Brazil.

Just found your blog through the "next blog" button. This poem gives me chills. You have eloquently spoken for so many women afraid to let go and love. Kudos!

Wow! Amazing stuff! Just clicking the Next button and had to stop and read. Very deep, very poignant, and so amazing. I wish I had your talent but I can sure feel the heartache in your poetry. Keep it up! You have a great way to express almost impossibly indescribable emotions.
