March 27...(Comfort of Fools)

copyright 2011 K.Omodele for The Abeng

A new beginning...

her sashay graced the catwalk
snatched his thought,
suspending his breath
on a climatic ledge
gripped his stone-flint heart
and struck a SPARK!

the river-walk in Augusta
arms en-wrapping arm
skin caressing skin
sun-warmed hearts coddling
prom dates whisper in spring
soft kisses dripping promises
of life-long tomorrows
filled with never-ending,
early-morning pillow talk
and private sabbatical reasonings
interpreting Love and contemplating Life...
love of a lifetime
learning through life, time
growing, graying
soul intertwining soul
and the promise
comforted only the fools
Jah knows, their yesterdays crept in the way...

  1. it's a very romantic 1.. make me feel like a real woman in love, like i want to be touched! in that same way

  2. Beautiful!! ... love the description of how she stole his thoughts and left him breathless...
    I like the ending better without the last line, though. Adds a bit of dat :)

  3. @JamaicaRocker GOOD! u checked in on us again...Thanks.

    @the Nik.. you may be right. I might need you as my editor. Thanks for your input. I'll take this into consideration when I put it in the book (where I include two more verses)
