“That Man”

I didn’t have a clue
I never thought this could come true
Sit back and close your eyes
And let me paint this picture for you
It has been some time now
I let my inside dry up and dwindle in despair
Hoping that tomorrow
He will be there
I feel the beats and the pounding
Like a drum in a band
I can’t help but wonder
Has God finished completing
‘”that” Man
I know I have no place
But you can tell by the look on my face
That there’s an empty space
Everyday there’s a race
And I’m weary from the chase
And not one of them had “that” face
Those eyes that would see clean through to my soul
And give light to that place
That has now become a black hole
While my days come and nights go by
I know all that I have come to believe can’t be a lie
Have I asked for too much?
Are my standards too high?
If your answer to me is No…..
Then my question is why?
There is no answer
This question has been plaguing me like a cancer
And still
There is no answer
Just when I decided
I would just let it go
A door opened
And wouldn’t you know
At first glance
I knew this meeting was not by chance
It played out like a silent movie from France
No words were being spoken
Not even a sound
Our souls knew
They had been found
See physically we weren’t in the conversation
OMG what a sensation
Intertwined his soul and mine
Thank you Jesus ….lol…it’s about time
So for the first time I take a chance
And follow my heart
The whole while my head is saying
That’s not smart
But this is different
It’s a joy I can’t fully explain
Our connection is so deep
or am I going insane
Seeing the love he has for me
Through his eyes
Let’s me know everything my head has been telling me
Has all been lies
I took mental notes
I left myself open
Hoping, Wishing, Praying
God would finish completing “that” Man
And all the while it was written in his plans
Right before my eyes
Here he stands

“that” Man!

On That One Night A Year

This place is so crowed
Music is the only sound I here
As I take my seat
Our eyes meet

With a warm smile
As we continue to stare
I want to turn my head
Hoping my looks
Aren’t miss-read

It only takes a minute
After I am fully seated
For you to come by
And say Hi

This is not the place
But it’s where we met face to face
Man I hope this guy
Is not on the chase
If that’s not case
Then it’s ok
For him to take a seat
And be in my space

Many have walked by
Trying to catch my eye
While never turning my head
And talking with you
Should hopefully
Give them a clue

On a chance meeting
In this place
You would be the first
I must admit
To keep a smile
On my face

Eight months have passed
You’re still complimenting me on having class
It is true
All men aren’t just looking
For a piece of ass

There are many misconceptions
Of people who attend these places
Clustered and crowed with so many faces

On that one night a year
I decide to go out dance
I met a gentleman
With my first glance
