{For: Anthony David, Love Gee~Chee Queen}

 

Your fingers masterfully orate

my story

with every strum of

your guitar.

 

In acoustic memories,

I am transported

by melancholy melodies

of my life's highs and lows,

written in the key of my

Georgia red clay.

My loves'

ebbs and flows rolls

off your cords like the

Tybee of my Southern

roots

and my boots begin to move

in rhythmic fashion to the

blues that croons

my heartaches,

yet, elevates

me,

this peach

of a woman.

 

And as you lay truth

at my feet

caressing each note

as if

undressing your lover's

sheath,

I stumble,

fall

down

to

crawl

into the "YES!" of your

persuasive voice,

to escape the

no's of my past

rejections

and find solace in

your song's

collection

of my

thoughts.

 

I walk

tightropes

with every

string's vibration

serenading

my elation

of being

his heart's

desire

yet, left to burn

in the fire of

lonely nights

alone,

growing icicles

in my home

that even the

Gee~Chee summers

can't warm.

 

You speak to me

My neo~soul blues man

your Savannah mouth full

of syllables that

melt

soothing balm from

the aloe of your tongue and

through parted lips

heal my soul

that others

have wrung.

 

Your genius

kisses me

through addictions

and low self~esteem

afflictions

'til I know

that the morning

will come

just as surely

as staccato beats

become one.

Orate my story,

let my heart

and your fingers

collide in

fairytales to

color my blues

the golden yellow

of Truth,

let it send

Amens!

cruising through my

veins and polish

my bones

smooth as river stones.
