POETICALLY INCLINED: gratitude

thank you.
for making me a priority.
because beyond dedicating time to me,
you take your time with me.
you never rush me.
but i open to you quickly
enter immediately
make your home in me
and come frequently.
thank you
for all of the extra effort that you put in
and for the greatness you're set on pulling out.
the special qualities you acknowledge in me
inspires me
to be more of the kind of person you're tryin to see
every morning you wake and in ever afters of happy
thank you
for perfect conversation, kisses and laughter.
for showing me the beauty of your heart
as it's magnified in the way you love your son
i am infatuated and my guard is gone.
thank you.

McK

POETICALLY INCLINED: just you

commitment never looked so appealing,
until you. 
distractions used to seem overwhelming,
now there is just you.
inspired to be better
think better
do better
because of you. 
the house that failure built
had to crumble to reveal you.
escaped from it
made it
created a new....
you.

and just in case it's ever needed,
"get your loving at home"
know that i'll serve you.

POETICALLY INCLINED: more or less

touch me like you're memorizing me.
eyebrows, lips, nose, cheek
hands, arms, back, feet.
ingrain me into you permanently.
so solid
you impress me deeply.
so solid
but treat me so gently. 
reciprocal care is the standard
whole list of prayers and you seem like the answer.
you do, i do. that's no question.
never need much, 
just trying to be your extra blessing.
headache reliever
stress easer
pleasure bringer
growth seeker.
and more...

that's the theme of my thoughts
give more
be more
do more.
want more.
need more.
you.
more.

POETICALLY INCLINED: yes

so glad I said yes
to you inquiring about who I was
and then to dinner
so glad I said yes
now access has been granted
to quality time, conversation and connection
said yes and ran straight into amazin'
everything I gave to others is being recouped
I receive back all of me ...in you.
and I'm so glad I said yes
to new ..to different ...to solid
to leadership....I wholeheartedly submit.
"when you know, you know" and now I get it!
and I'll always say yes

POETICALLY INCLINED: WVF

realized that i have seen pieces of you in men i've loved.
the contrast of what they lacked created 
the space for me to envision you.
relationships with the sole purpose to fail
just to foreshadow what was to come
felt you in every fumbling finger that touched me
and heard you in every lust dipped lie told.
they left room for the intense anticipation of you
easily, i recognize and identify with your truth.
undoubtedly, i hoped a lot--prayed a lot--loved a lot
was let down a lot--misled a lot.
i fought a lot and 
believed when i oughta not.
stayed when i shoulda walked.
and always for bits and pieces of the KING
that was lost in them.
my optimism the glue that sculpted a
plagiarized idea of royalty.
the Queen in me broken because of false rulers
on thrones next to me.
the construction of Kingdoms halted because
blueprints didn't match. 
lasting legacy delayed because a faux king
was never designed to impregnate or empower
this Queen.
hurt had to happen. growth had to happen. 
your trials had to mold you
mine had to prepare me.
separate life journeys to make us
strong enough to withstand...understand..
and nurture the power of our meeting.

Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
welcome to our predestined dominion.

POETICALLY INCLINED: Hidden Colors

head in your lap while you play
with the roots of my hair
like you're searching for kin in Africa
dig deep.
hard work is etched in your fingers
like identifying prints
there is no mistaking your value
so I appraise you
and deem that your worth is so high,
I would have to take
flights just to inhale you
i make sure to appreciate you ...
like the cost of gold, never dwindling
your flaws and skin
are like precious stones and gems,
scattered strategically over you.
so my every touch is not a touch..
but an effort to mine the diamond within.
just to MINE your diamond within.
own it.
so I dig deep.
and i nevermind the coal of a past
that could never dim the sparkle of your now.
because every smudge is removed when I blow
on you to reveal your clarity.
may my breath on your life be my payback
for the rib you let me borrow way way back.
so let me lay here on your lap while you
trail your fingers down my back
like you're following a map to get home...
here to Eden.

McK

POETICALLY INCLINED: the dopest love

I once said that I would mess around
and manifest the dopest love last year


then you appeared.




perhaps, not for the union...
but as a lesson in what dope
love could really feel like.




because you felt great.
and I miss it.




I miss effortless.
I miss intelligence.




I miss telling you secrets
about my spirit....
and you turning me on
by simply understanding it.




my growth in God allows me to trust His timing.
but I can't help but miss the hours we spent facetiming.
planning, plotting and vision sharing
accountability partner to life partner...
I get it. that's scary.




so you shook.
and that's cool.
having you ready is far better than
having you pressured
in my book.




it's just that it doesn't really sit well that we're barely friends
didn't wanna live the cliche' of all good things coming to an end




no hard feelings or grudges
I feel blessed and hopeful about what true love is
knowing the type of King that stirs my soul actually exists
to know I could love someone beyond the physical, not even a kiss.




so maybe you weren't the dopest love manifested
but you were surely a sign of what I am being prepared
to be blessed with.


for that, I thank you and love you.

McK
