Because I Washed My Locs Today . . .

Updated on September 16, 2011
Stunning IMHO!
Stunning IMHO!

Today was my day to Pamper myself.

I washed my locs,

Did my toes,

Beat my arms with a hairbrush,

(Yeah, hush) to pretend I was getting a massage.

And earlier in the day, while my boy was away at Sunday school,

I did yoga.

If you look at me, you can see I've been tired,

Nothin' a lil lovin' couldn't take care of.

Not that physical kind of lovin', but the cuddle me, hug me, serve me breakfast In bed kinda lovin'.

The kinda lovin' , damn! . . . .

Just thought I'd share

As I'm siitin' here in the dark of the living room, quiet surrounding me;

Surrounding me like the strong arms of a lover I once knew.

Once loved true.

He'd lend me his Toyota while he went out soldiering at Ft. Bragg.

Yeah, I loved me a soldier!

Knew I was bad!

Sashaying across the dance floor, as I drew his eye.

Intent on making him my guy.

Kissed his lips

That first nigt.

Moved into life

Never needing more than him,

Him standing behind me as I washed dishes at the sink,

His words moving through me,

Making me wilt and shrink closer to his love thang ~~~~ Dang!

Lovin' him was better than Heaven!

Today was my day to Pamper myself ~~~~

No lover rubbed my scalp,

painted my toes,

Nor kissed the tip of my nose.

No lover soothed my tired away.

Yeah a lil Lovin',

Not the physical kind, but that cuddle me, hug me, serve me breakfast in bed Kinda lovin;

A lil lovin' like that would of been . . .

      Hello TheListLady,

      I try so much to make sure I comment everyones response to my work/hubs. So sorry to have overlooked this one from you. I am humbled that you enjoyed my poem. I've been loc'ing my hair for 18 years and was encouraged by a lady who wore them all the way down to her knees. She is no longer with us. I understand about not writing poetry. I can go stretches of time with nothing hitting me, moving me to rhyme. Then I am sitting somewhere and I hear a sound, I see a child, or just a color or smell a scent and I am off into poetic vibe. Your passion is still there. Sometimes we don't write because we are at peace with our inner self. We are happy. I have found most times I write my poetry is when I am down, or troubled by something. Then it pours out. I will look to your pages to see if you put down any poems. I want to read you, too. Thank you for reading this hub. I am honored to have inspired you. Take care! Peace!

      Ooh loved this - and love locs. What a great idea for a great contribution to...our locs and our loves and life. So much. I'm inspired all over again. It's been so long since I have written a poem. That can only mean I have lost some of my passion - or my reasons to have passions, I think.

      Will keep reading your poems for sheer enjoy and inspiration. Oh Yay! Rated up and much more.
