My ears miss the sound of the sound of you missing my ears …
My eyes miss the eyes that looked back from inside your eyes…
Your taste is still with me …
But your touch has been long gone …
we share breath …
on a rainy afternoon only to never touch again ..
then let our rawest emotions spill onto these whites …
Pages ..
Linens ..
And Let the cry of love missed over flow onto cheeks and down faces ..
let them weep ..
the tears
lovers who never knew love ..
friends who never became ..
partners who never exchanged






They will never understand our connection.

I am remembering the month of Augustus
You have always been the bearer of my sighs
Flesh upon my flesh
Your tongue licked the hollows of my southern groove
I could rely on the sound of your voice like the rising of the sun
I needed to be under your skin so I can feel what living really was
The earth quakes when u moaned
Monarch butterflies soared on gentle breezes
Your kisses were tempered to the seasons
You found be beneath the ocean’s waves
Dreaming of dry land
Called out to me in the voice of my soul
They have never known that
Artemis walked among them
You have whispered sounds in the palm of my hands
And I
Wept at your feet

I spoke those ….Words escaping into the nape of your neck too high to
hear with the ear…telling of love unconditional …and unchanged even
..when neglected by the very fuel …to which set this fire ablaze …this
game has taken a wrong turn into …I love you?

This game has taken a turn …a bank and a roll in to final
approach…steal away for a day… I’ll rescue ya broke heart for my pleasure then
throw it back where I got it from … and the cycle continues …

From big gurl blues to love you’s to miss you’s to fuck you…realizing
that I can’t move without thinking of you…we shared breath …and at that
very moment your air was my air and my air was your air and the very
thing that kept you alive kept me and we shared time space and relevance
at that moment ..the with out even looking back threw that heart of
yours back where I found it …and lost my pride at the same time …that’s
missing …missing breathing

I left with more than memories
Confused and couldn’t be near to me
The carrier of your ghostly seed
There were already TWWWWWOOOOOOO from you a
3rd u would have gone unnoticed
I would have said to him...baby u came from 3 months of unconditional
Of unsent notebooks, of I h(l)a(o)t(v)e(e) you’s.

Because u rejected me my body rejected him
Toxic soil to a seed planted in l(u)o(s)v(t)e
My grief would not let me bare a reminder of you

My seed aborted life it self and chose “strait to heaven” as the option
…with out passing GO
The barren orchard can not bear the fruit of love.. can not bear the
fruit of love .. only holds tree of lust .. and what lust brings is Sin
.. tho you neva had the opportunity to choose which road to take .. me
holding the keys .. neither damned enough to bear …rotten seeds .. oh
how could love be so cruel .. next life time!!!

18895, "thoughts on a sunday that i remember."
Posted by kisszion, Thu Aug-24-06 10:36 PM

The words I write are pieces of a long forgotten song

I have searched the world over seeking something that I have always carried within me

What is strength?

To draw from the well of my soul the energy to keep going forward

What is satisfaction?

Knowledge that this moment will never die.

I am on a carousel smiling

A moment of clarity where I remember who we were

I stretch my arms to the sky to embrace the sun

To show you that although I will never touch the sun

I can always reach

That is hope.

I am not incomplete without you

I deceived myself for so long thinking I wasn't whole

Thinking I wasn't worthy of love

I write, not because I'm sick but because it's like breathing

Words are forming on the horizon and I can feel Eurydice behind me

I was weak beaten by harsh desert winds

I had been exposed

My eyes

My brown eyes were closed

I was blind holding on to the doctrines of false prophets

Lost in a city of well wishers

I was a woman who didn't walk because she had always been told she couldn't

I slept for so long

I needed only your strength

I wanted only your love

In the end

I found my true self….waiting and wanting nothing

My skin is warm

My eyes reflect the light that is shining within

This is my covenant

That the void never needed filling

The void was always a void

Cocooned, I wanted to be safe from myself

I am an abstract individualist that wanted to conform

To a world that would still reject me

-Tichana Chipp

Posted by DVS, Fri Aug-25-06 12:41 AM
I knew from afar...this enigmatic moment...
Souls kindred...roads travelled similar...
Sat sidecar and coasted thru related scenery...
Compared old soul scars and red dirt roads...
Over collard green casserole fat back...
words run short like time did...
and I am keenly aware...
of gaping black holes where love once stood...
if only....

I didnt know her but
still i show affection,
coz even though some dont
doesnt mean we cant express,
my respect for life and death
but friends is much more,
so i understand the pain,
many have gone though.

i went to bed last night with this on my mind
and its still haunting me
her family
her upcoming wedding
her peers
her words...
i really dont know what to say

i want to hug my friends and tell them i love them
hold my babies close, really close
mend fences with those that have drifted away

i usta read her poems and think...
i wish i were brave enough to share
what i write about my pain
and wished i was courageous enough
bleed honesty into poems
the way she did

her poetry dug deep
made me
stuck to me long after
i'd read the words and phrases
beautifully written
and so dam
and that was just a part
of her

18909, God no....... why couldnt I save her.....
Posted by KnowOne, Fri Aug-25-06 08:26 AM
I didnt see it comming this time.... for once I thought she was happy. I owe her my life.....dag.... I dont know what to...

Nikki always tried to get me to post in Freestyle and we used to tease eachother back and forth about it. I would come and read her poems but I never posted one of my own. She was always supportive and encouraging to me and that is something I will always hold in my heart.

I know she loved this forum.
And I know many of you loved her.

God bless her.
She is a beautiful spirit.

Much respect and love.

i didn't know her, but honey girl had me @ her screen name. as i lurked in freesyle, i looked for the eye, her i, if i didn't see it, i usually backed out. this is really sad and haunting right now, since out of the few poems i read, i chose to reply on one that alluded to death, oh this hurts to hear this. so, rest gently dear angel, rest gently, but when you get tired, reprise your glow ever-more, ever more!

He looks determined without being ruthless
Something heroic in this man, there's a courage about him
Doesn't look like a killer
Comes across so calm, acts like he has a dream
Full of passion

Posted by DawgEatah, Sun Aug-27-06 03:50 PM
she always spoke fondly of you and i know that the pain i am feeling must be tenfold for you. i know we can get thru this and i have some plans in the works to tributize her memory so that her beautiful words are not forgotten.

i wish there was more i could say to make it hurt less, but i am struggling myself. i just try to take comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain, and she will continue to touch lives like she did when she was alive.

during my big depression years the freestyle board, people like 3rd i, was an extended family that really helped me through shit...even if i wasn't one of the main heads on this page and stayed lurking mostly it did make a difference.

i'm sad to hear this. 3rd i was always gracious and her presence and words will be missed. peace to her loved ones. damn.
18936, may.. everytime anyone speaks, types or cries her name...
Posted by blaksilence, Mon Aug-28-06 10:08 PM
may a piece of peace wrap her in warmth

may whatever higher power she believed in welcome her with a smile

may her loved one's sorrows be replaced with her best moments

protect her, love her, take her to the place that she most wanted to be
