Poem For The Heart Of Imamu - Poem by stephanie mellisa kievaughan

very dark.
very bright.
haunted soul.
haunted heart.
haunted mind.
familiar spirit.
return?
would you please?
to visit me.
in the misty dawn waxing bright,
or the waning twilight.
simmering down
to the black of night.
deliver unto me
my hearts content
my souls delight.
I only found
when you were nearer unto me,
or right beside.
your memory dwells
within the fibers of all that is me.
all of me
was half the sum of you.
ties that bind such as this.
tragedy, and fate
shall never undo
nor separate.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

upon finding a poem written by Imamu Amiri Baraka my heart was moved to sing out a dose of good medicine for the sake of humanity and empathy. a poet has really done something great when they inspire others to relate and write it down. all due honors to Imamu Amiri Baraka.

    Nice one... good poem...10

    None to second

    We shall move
    Hand in hand to prove
    Closeness as strong bond
    And stand as none to second

    humbly bows in the general direction of your recognition of my poetic efforts. also know i have recently posted a new poem. i hope to find soon that you have read it slowly enough to really the chew the fat of it's content. i can not ask for more of my readers. when it is clear they have done far more than read my poem. when they have processed and felt it through
