I Dream In Color

I Dream In Color

It is deep within the closet Behind the locked layers Years of what should have, could have, if only we tried harder but I tried hard enough That I feel you penetrating layers of sealed/taught restraint And maybe, truth be told, I’m scared as I find myself going full speed forward Against fore warned “do not get caught up in the façade” But years of perfected lies couldn’t deceive this feeling of you and me So excuse the insanity while I “futurize” Indulging in poetic melodies You strum the songs of my heart Tell me that traums have the ability to become true because…

I believe completely in you Willing to slay the seven head dragon Can’t be conquered by Hebrew armies Knock down the Berlin wall of random concubines And wrap you in these sheets of Oya I want to go down by the riverside Dip past transgressions in your vision And prophesize the future into reality Because tomorrow may never come I want to live in today Encase myself in the shield of a fantasized love And be reborn on the threshold of make-believe What of love at first sound Filtering through airwaves Veins split wide open Hoping Soaring Believing

Like Donny said, I want to be loved in a place where there’s no space of time So even though you don’t believe in fairy tales anymore, I can see through the smoke screen Because I’ve slept with a broken heart Woke up and nursed it back to life with prayers and broken winged promises Yeah I know mama That you saw your destiny approaching Because this little light of mine Saw the God in you Her trash was my treasure and you’ll always be good enough And if I dialed the wrong number then I’d rather dance or die picking the spikes of your porcupine learn to handle you gently because diesel ignites at a virtually constant speed

I get it I can be your flower child Make love not war We be too blessed to be stressed I give you my words Dripped in your meanings Because you too, make me wanna be in love And unlike the others, I know that love’s a verb So I’m crushing On your lip service Amused by your musings It is what it is I want… What I want… And that is… You

(So this is what happens when a poet goes through her old files.)
