Catch These Feelings

Lately, I’ve been
loving me exclusively
I mean I’ve been lovely
to my mind, body, and soul.
I’ve been walking by mirrors,
giving myself goo-goo eyes
and goosebumps while
blowing forehead kisses.

Falling head over heels
for my own heels;
Adoring my sophistication,
wisdom, intelligence,
natural beauty, witty,
humorous, and free spirit self.
I mean I’ve been really
close to these feelings.
We’ve been holding
on securely
with being secure
for a long time now.
I mean real close
and personal.
All in my feelings
as I catch these feelings.
Aware of my do’s and don’ts,
My yes’s and no’s.

Feeling quite holy
and wholesome more;
Less fragmented;
Less dissatisfied;
No broken vows
or promises;
No lies on top of lies;
No alibis;
No disputable
commitments
to face.
No confusions.
No maybes or what ifs;
No validations;
No waiting;
No casual dealings;
No situation-ships;
Nothing phony about it;
Nothing fake either;
Just a serious truce
between my fears
and my faith as
my heart listens
and vibe to a higher
frequency of my
spiritual and physical
intimacy with
sweet love as priority;
Fully full
off self-inspiration,
confirmation and devotion
until I encounter 
another lover
strong enough to 
share these mutual feelings.


Ricochet

I
never wanted
you to be wrapped
around my finger.

Your
heart wasn’t
stable or vital
enough.

In
your favor,
the polygamy
of its lifeline
had no vacancy
for monogamy.

There,
I let the idea
of your heart go
without taking
liability for
the ricochet.
