Take Me Back

Heaven cried loud the day love was born

A storm torn, passions untold

The pages of our love story unfold

I want back into those touches bold

The rising sun kissing my bald head

Kisses of precious gold

While I carry you inside me fed

So you can never grow cold


Take me back to the days

When scented letters meant everything to say

No online craze

When we would dance like fingerlings

With romance on our fingertips

Run ablaze on stolen dreams

Ride in hiphop rims

Hide in hides and skins

Before swag hit the screens


Take me back to your heart

When love was your thing

And you the very synonym

When at my whisper your anger grew dim

And we would slide in screaming creams

Of our love’s sacred beams

I know simple is what it seems

But hard is what it is

Whatever the dirges we secretly silently sing

I am yours

You are forever my flying wing
