As the king of words, Jose slings his sword recklessly, all in some misinformed effort to ‘Empress’ some fishy business chick named Doreen who has a knack for tripping over fuller cups than her own. Meanwhile, their target, sits confidently upon her square day in and day out because her instinct and intuition are both her sword and shield. In the end The Peace Queen gains the world while her enemies cheer her on begrudgingly.
A clandestine love affair it remained, so as not to muddy waters or rock boats.
You see this was a pair destined for life partnership.
Unfortunately they were mismatched like an uncomfortable shoe – to people whom neither really knew.
Queen Darlene had been burned time and time again by a nefarious fellow posing as her dream come true.
Having played the field in his younger years, the pain of the karmic boomerang still stung 20+ years later, for King Arch Ello….
They’d become one another’s remedy in the midst of turbulence, playing a dangerous game of lie & cheat.
Oh but when their legs comingled between them sheets…
His phallus seemed to fit like the missing piece… to her va-jig-saw puzzle.
Ho-telling it all on any given Sunday, during church sermons y’all
Mo-telling it in guffaw at the next chance encounter when moonlight called
Mystical creatures acted as shields of protective armor, holding their dirty little secret in tact
While millions of outsiders tried to pry, pounce and denounce them down to smithereens
Still, many failed to realize, in spite of their clever misplaced endeavors
Clandestine lovers they’d remain, bonded in a lifetime of forever’s….

I was supposed to be headed toward progression but got detoured somewhere down the road. Instead I ended up travelling down memory lane, facing mental epilepsy, stuck on reruns of my childhood. Rather than fight the feeling, I pulled to the side of the road until clarity and purpose made sense.
While in park, my intuition caught wind of turbulence in the air so I began looking around in search of revelation. My vision honed in on a young soul seeking guidance toward her desired destination which could be seen up the road – a beautiful home where a family awaited her arrival. This person was stalled. She knew that she couldn’t cross the street alone because she wasn’t quite old enough, but she didn’t know who to ask and her family was too far ahead to realize that she needed help. She needed a bridge to connect her intent with the end result.
Without a signal or omen, I stepped in and helped out. She looked to me as the solution to her dilemma. “The coast is clear, you’re safe to cross”, I said.
In a fit of joy and infectious laughter, the lost girl found her rhythm and ran on down the road. I ran to catch her speed as I saw that she was nearing the end of one street in need of clearance once more. Before she could look for me, I appeared. “Go on. It’s safe to cross.”
Up ahead a young girl her same age stood in the front lawn of a beautiful home. She appeared to be waiting for someone. When she saw the stalled girl cross the street, her face lit up bright as a streetlight. Her mother exited the front door with a look of sheer disbelief. The stalled girl turned to look at me one last time before she ran into the house.
My purpose had been served. Continuing on my journey toward progression, I remembered where I was, in mental remission. In revenant form, I came back to my past to bridge the gap; healing the child in me so that the adult me could progress naturally.
