My Blog Lyric Fire: I Dream of Ta’Liah

a pop of emotion breaks the night dream and extends it into day

mysterious eyes

sensibilities sent from heaven

magic in a human suit

changing the course of life

sending thoughts into fantastical overdrive

womanhood in multiple dimensions

life script changed forever

familiar, yet different in every way

shaped and formed perfectly

gorgeous giggle

magnificent mind

a celestial silhouette

her lips curl at the sight of everything

fingers dissecting secrets kept for thousands of years

archaeologist in the making

scientific leanings

make her all the more intriguing

her hair is wooly


and straight

she wears a juice-box smile

but when serious her shrills can shatter a wine glass

jokes make her eyes squint

news reports elicit high pitched laughter




slightly dangerous with remote controls

as she flings them across the room

not fearing wrath

from anyone

she knows she belongs to me

no one will harm her

i hold her in my arms

almost weeping at the feeling


almost broken down

wondering if our unity can withstand the pressure

the scrutiny

of peering eyes


how dare i dream of ta’liah

how i wish that somewhere

over and beyond the purple-speckled moon

that ta’liah is dreaming of me
