Love Affair With Words

Love Affair With Words

by: TJ Hope 
 "Love Jones" Open Mic

I never thought a word, could be the sweetest shit I've ever heard 
Like kissing chocolate covered Lips, Damn. I only added a verb
Whether you're written on pages or developed in stages
Your nouns wrap me up, this is delicious, contagious

Your syllables and parables, makes it undeniable that I fell for you
As long as I can read, write, listen to you, I'm never blue
Like glue intertwined by your stanzas, sonnets and echo verse
Look what you do Baby, Let's make a Haiku, you make me free verse

Oooo, and when you put that right lyric on me
There's just no place I'd rather be, see, you just get me
You massage me in places and fill in blank spaces
You make love to my mind, that hot spot most men can't find

You see the way you spark a poem, is out of the norm
That thing you do with romance, makes this love last
Erotica, you get so naughty I'm begging for more please
Got me feeling hot and bothered, ready to come out my panties

Oooo now, You're a tease!
That good mind Fuck, I'll never leave
All these things you do to me, makes his mind wonder
IS there another man, another love, he starts to ponder

Hard for him to understand this complete and utter obsession
Characters, plots and tragedy stealing my attention
No you see, there is not another penis
It's all in these metaphors, that's causing these secretions

So, if you like caressing these hips and tasting these lips
And spending quality time captured in my intimate rhymes
You have to understand, you could never truly be my only one
Because this love affair I'm having with words, shit got me sprung
