You Remind Me Also

by Mskeneshie

you remind me
of white roses
blooming on a
blue day
not caring 
about the 
black haze
you remind me
of love wrapped
in chocolate
tall and full
to its brim
checking me
wrecking me
allowing me
“to get in there”

you remind me
of a cold night
gathered in a spiritual heat
for your touch
wanting to be
in the crux
to know
how hard 
you love me
just, how hard
you can love me

you remind me
of Sumatra coffee
growing wildly 
in my senses
of jump rope battles
and girls tattling
and talking about
their dreams
you remind me 
of me
right down to the insecurity
that you have
and i laugh at us
and i think
“forever mine...
you’re my kind”(O’Jay tune)
you remind me
of thoughts perchance
and a miracle
not happenstance
and i smile

you remind me
of my life
and of being 
your wife
and of bearing
our child

you remind me of Christ’s love
for the church
and for which 
our search
and together
we begin
because I remind you 
of something
