    Song: "Chocolate Legs" Eric Benet

    For my Crazy 8's

    Bruised knuckles from knocking on closed hearts
    He opened his doors
    Wide with welcome
    Come in.
    Rest yourself.
    Make yourself at home.

    Earth tones echo
    Warm hues of comfort envelope my homecoming.
    I had forgotten his love.
    I missed his strength.
    Lift me
    Carry me
    Let me fall away free.

    His skin
    Pretty Brown
    His arms
    Soft firm bulk round
    His face
    Flawless Chocolate
    His legs
    Cocoa creamy silky smooth
    His eyes
    His lips
    His fingertips
    He gives my soul shelter
    Again.

    I rest
    Lay quiet on his chest
    Drifting peacefully on love's raft
    Feeling his breath
    Rise and fall
    Like an easy sea
    I float endlessly
    Coltraine's A Love Supreme
    Paying debt on a wet dream.
    I am free.

    Soft wood
    Dark as the bed I lay on
    Solid as the floor I pray on
    Strong as the branch my swing sways on
    Safe as the home base we played hide and seek on
    You were built for me
    And I for you.
    I am home.
