Hypnotic Flow

You speak words

With a rythm and conviction

A friction

Between non fiction and surrealism

I gravitate toward them

And their meanings

As I navigate

Through the fog

Of chopped syllables

And verbs

At the curb of your lips

On your finger tips

You count down

My melt down

At the source

Of your language arts

A true genius of prose

A lyrical heavyweight

Baby

You sway me

With your smooth

Playin mind games

And stereophonic

Similes of

Whose it is

Who owns this

World of words

That got me caught up

Like I’m trapped

In a snare

With cryptic keys

That I can’t

Decode well enough to escape

As you trapse

Across the lines

Of soft sounds

To the hard pounds

Of the flow in your heart

And so I listen

With a mission

To be an addition

To the language you speak

These words you feel

When you let them

Unleashed

Your vibe

That I strive

To emulate from inspiration

Is an entity in itself

And so i pretend

Fake like i’m

Not impressed

Not moved

Not twisted

By your gifted ways

Of playin off Webster’s

With a single vowel

While consonsants

Are irrelevant

In your ability

To kill me

And resurrect me

In one sentence.

I fell into the rythm of

These words you speak

And

Tongue in cheek

I try to repeat

You feat

Of verbal magnetism

And I wish it were that simple

And so I stay lost

In your translation of feelings

Into pen written dealings

On open mic night

Cuz your timing’s that right

And in spite

Of myself

I write

With help

In hoping that

Living vicariously

Through your linguistic beats

Could compete

With my reality

Falling in to

Your rythm

Your words

And their immortality
