Apart "When time doesn’t stand without you" Part II


...I’d remember all the times, falling in between the lines was like rewriting
the first time, I’d remember everything you wanted me to remember about you
and for the days of tomorrow, promises on the lips of  another kiss

When the days ran long and I couldn’t see
only now I’d remember
More
More than words could describe you
when I promised tomorrow that first I’d remember, that first time lost in emotion it was
because of you...

In the same place at the same time
I got secrets starring you
Better said than done...
You know it's true
You found my catalog
Your numbers in it
5x7 too
Telling all about you
A Roll.B-Side
Starring you
I got footage you stepping to
In the same place at the same time
DeJaVu.
Missing hours you claiming
Found
Expose's missing on your resume
In the same place at the same time
Missing on your resume
Solo lines you hide behind
Just ain't how we see it
Private eyes
Lost and found
A-Notes, Accapella.
"Hello? Is It Me You're Looking For"
Richie-Dynasty and Carrol
Carrolling in the dust
You moved on up the water, waterfalls behind it all

I got secrets
Starring You
Was there seen it all
But I'm not the one you call for you PI.

I Feel. As You Do.

I feel.
As you do.
I touch
It's your VooDoo
Still wearing you
I feel.
As you do.
Can't breathe
Without you.
As you do.
I feel
If it's all of you
I was apart of it too
If it wasn't
As you do
Without you
It couldn't
Last
I feel.
As you do

Lay down
As you do.
Breathe
As you do.
Touch
As you do.

I feel.
As You do.

Caress me
As you do.
All of you.

Call me
Feel me
As you do

Ain't No Secret Ugly, Ain't Nothing Pretty 'Bout The Truth


Ain't no secret ugly
passed you by
Chasing the wind
and fast nights

slow winding goodbyes
Short hellos
Ain't nothing
Pretty about the truth
Tonight

Tonight
Ugly confessed all it had to tell
Can you handle all the truth
Ain't no ugly secret passed you by

You ain't missed the truth
Just one little bit
About being true
True to you
And all of your ugly
All that it tells you

Ain't nothing Pretty about the Truth
Tonight

Short hellos and goodbyes

A 'Lil Bit Mo (For A Lonely Night)

A lil bit mo
Not to forget your love
and by the time it's gone
A lil bit closer
Not to let you go
Not getting by on rainy days
or hidden days
Hoping the sun shines through
On lonely nights
On truth
Holding you
On the ropes
Ups and downs
When Lonely
Was brave
Ain't a lil bit mo
Better than
Hiding the Truth

A lil bit closer
A lil bit wiser

Masculinity (What I didn't Want To Know) Author Jocelyn Shaw 2018

What I didn't wanna know
What I didn't wanna see
All in front of me
The way the walk was too much
The stare too long
The breathing just a lil but too heavy
And his pulse racing just a lil too fast
What I didn't bare
To tell
What I didn't wanna know
I didn't wanna know your scent

They way it compliments his hips
the taste of dead flowers better than fermented wine
I didn't wanna know the kiss of goodbye
Sitting on the throne

In the passions of lust
Fused with the sweat misting His

To tell
What I didn't wanna know
Know now that
The inn keeper has put the charms of the night in his night dresser and the secrets blessed the walls like wallpaper, hieroglyphs that haunt with the walk of the day
I didn't wanna stand alone in the caress
of my own
shoulders and arms of the bitter breeze that teases with the taste and scent once again

I didn't wanna know
Lover's
Lover's do say
Masculinity of the first person
Can slip into the second and third

I didn't wanna know that
I could loose the grammar
Left bestilled by Acts, scenes for
Carrying just a lil bit longer, a lil bit darker
A lil bit like
What I didn't bare to tell
But all too bare to take back






His shirt breathed of her inner thigh and perfume of the night holding the breath of his lungs, as he thought back on her. Beginning the day was love's hangover, the last taste of the dance in the sheets the night before, tirelessly romanticized between thoughts of the day ahead chasing his dreams out of his head that still lay on the stain of his lips. A gorgeously laden championship that caught a reflection on his body in the full length mirror on his way to the powder room. Sexy. The only thing bellowing from his tired body, talk that whispered to him trying to persuade him back into the covers, rumors and secrets caught up in his bedroom eyes with chagrin, charges that he was only known for one nighters. This affair had now turned into a year past and a lot of sex.Once more past the full length mirror, only to catch his cascading steps and another hidden moment of pleasure before his exit. Enticing as it was, the challenge to recreate the passion of an evening's moments embrace of the night before cursing him. Damn.If that's what gets you through. It was like being an addict of his own choosing.

This morning he couldn't set his thoughts aside to concentrate on his other obligations, only to put up a charade hiding behind his shades pretending everything today was less than feminine.
Feminine was the taste and touch still holding on with her fingertips still running up the side his legs past his spine and the nipples of his breast, where his heart was held in her hands it seemed like love, felt like a love hangover. A bruised, jealous interruption that was departing his appetite for another body. Tonight he would return and she would be there,  I feel. As you do.

I feel.
As you do.
I touch
It's your VooDoo
Still wearing you
I feel.
As you do.
Can't breathe
Without you.
As you do.
I feel
If it's all of you
I was apart of it too
If it wasn't
As you do
Without you
It couldn't
Last
I feel.
As you do

Lay down
As you do.
Breathe
As you do.
Touch
As you do.

I feel.
As You do.

Caress me
As you do.
All of you.

Call me
Feel me
As you do
