Strange Chemistry

We. Are. Strange.

Unique.

Weird.

Quirky.

Awkward.

See around him

I become this different version of me

Shy but open

Slightly off but always on

He incites a special part of me

That very few get to see

He opens me up to new ideas

New ways of thinking

He enlightens me

Got me over here contemplating life and

Thangs

Got the nerve to have me

Creating poetry about

A we..

And I don’t even know if that is to be..

But

He moves me

Mentally and spiritually

Opening my being

Allowing my essence to

Be free

Breathe. Out. Loud.

Blooming

From the way he

Holds me

Safe and sound

I wanna quiet the sound of

Outside noise

That makes me want to doubt

Question his intentions

And run..

Cause

This man is special

Black and proud

Gifted and talented

A man of character

A revolution in himself

He is…

Different

He tickles my fancy

And make my spidey senses tingle

And When he hugs me

Peace captures me in its grasp

Got me hoping and praying

That this grows

Into this strangely beautiful

And special..

Entity..

For he is a happy place

For me

He is friend and lover

Mover and shaker

And we get to eat delicious food

Together

Listen to different genres of grooves

Together..

We. Are. Strange

We have this magical

Yet beautifully strange chemistry

We have similarities but differences of plenty

And although we are different

When we come together…

Serenity

I can’t explain it

Don’t really understand it

We just strange

Unique.

Weird

Quirky

Awkward.

And it’s beautiful.

be open..

this..

ability..

to share with you..

i said..

i would never..

allow another to

get this close to me..

again.. breaking down..

all barriers.

getting deep beneath my skin..

moments.. of…us..

these… moments of..

gaining trust..

these.. moments..

i wouldnt want to share them with anyone else..

the continued..

smiles.

Untitled

I am not a perfect soul

It seems imperfections in my middle name

And I do not claim

To know everything about this thing called love

But what I do know is that I am willing to

No longer allow the pain of

Past love’s, well past hurts to

Keep me from

An incredible

Love

I no longer want to hold on to pains endless story

That keeps me in tears and sorrow

No longer accepting less than I deserve

Because

The pain isn’t worth living life in fear

and walking away from love’s knock at the door..

with each passing day the knocks grow louder

And desire…

Consumes my being

I am not perfect..

And though past lovers left their scorned scents underneath my skin

I no longer will pretend that I do not

Desire love’s fresh fragrance again..

Therefore, I will allow myself to be open

Wide open with arms stretched out…

My face painted with a smile

Welcoming the enduring and purity of love’s new beginnings..

I wanna..

I wanna get to know you…
Like really get to know you
Get down to the very core of you
Understand you
Grow with you
I wanna share past secrets
While discovering our
Reason for resiliency
I wanna learn who you are
And what you stand for
I wanna over stand with you
As we navigate through life
I wanna converse with you
While you open my mind to
Greater understandings
I wanna explore different surroundings
With you
While making new memories
I wanna be open…
Share my essence…
Share my truths..
While we both learn how to
Trust again.
Building trust anew…
I wanna create and sing..
Laugh and smile
Inhale and exhale
You…
Establishing this thing…
This unbreakable bond…
I wanna get to know you…
All of you..
Only you.

Next to you (the beginnings)

Laying next to you
In your arms…
Head rested on your chest
Softly kissing your neck..
All of that…
In that moment..
Felt like home..
Felt like peace
Felt like increased moments, minutes,  seconds of happiness mixed with joy
Felt like willing vulnerability
Openness and comfort
I felt you
Completely dig you
And I hope that you feel and dig me too
