The Call

I received a call that I seemingly had been waiting for forever,

Out of no where I get this call,

This call is so long overdue I wasn’t excited at all,

More shocked,

This call brought up memories that I had been struggling to forget,

If I had got this call awhile ago I would feel different,

I’ve learned a few things waiting on this call,

I learned that I’m more valuable than I knew,

Being alone I grew,

I didn’t take long to answer the call,

Thank God I’ve struggled and stumbled in our time apart but I didn’t fall,

No need to stall what could be life changing,

In my mind I’m rearranging my thoughts,

All the parts of me that felt dead feels alive again,

If this call is for closure that’s cool,

If not the door is wide open for you,

Hello how are you?

It’s been a few years since we spoke,

Two to be exact,

I can tell how you expected me to react,

But I’ve made a pact with myself to be a better man,

A forgiving man,

A non judgemental, wiser praying man,

I’m still me just a wiser better version,

I’ve been thinking about you lately how have you been,

I figured you might have some kind of problem to be calling me,

But you know its always love with you and me,

Whatever you need that I can provide you got it,

I can’t hide my attraction and I don’t want to,

I think you are the love of my life and I want you,

Just let me know when and where and I’ll be there,

You know I still care about you,

Time can’t break real love that is so true,

Wow, um, I love you too,

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.
