Six feet is far enough

you can still see my stride

still be blessed by my light


six feet physical distance

not the same

as

six feet under pavement

keep listening

and you keep breathing


pray for the world

it needs healing

pray for your soul

may it have room to blossom

have time to see what you and yourself have in common


six feet is just enough

to know how deep is your love

1- through law adherence

2- through text message

3- through facetiming missions

4- through digital turn up sessions

5- through phone dings and rings

6- through letter and gift sending


Touch is a love language
but
love was never canceled
or
is loving this way too hot handle?

be graphic

be wishing

be planning

be reminiscing

be appreciating

be hoping

physical distance

brings you closer together


closer than ever

I have been writing for 20 years y'all.


For the next 20 days, I will post a poem a day, and an extra one for good luck, from each year of writing.


In honor of the #princetribute, here is #sometimesitsnowsinapril

I wrote in on today in 2016.


Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish life was never ending,

And all good things, they say, never last



Hello my Dearest the Beautiful One,

My 3rdEye was opened in 1999

brooding artist used to Housequakes began to Live 4 Love

For You were more than a Black Muse

You are an Xtralovable Lion of Judah

Original, Unique and Magnificient Act of God

With a Dirty Mind often in the Clouds

showing me how to FixUrLIfeUp

while i still played TICTACTOE with barbies and their Little Red Corvette

As the Signs o the times differed

You defined Pop Life

wrestling between Girl and PartyMan

and Theives in the Temple

Wanting us to be Interactive

Giving front row seats to a RocknRoll Loveaffair

So we could be your Sexy Dancer

You stopped time with the Shade Stare

Letting the world know, "Don't Play Me"

Taking us to church

You were always The One you Wanna C

Somewhere here on Earth

unfortunately the Resolution

became I wish you heaven


Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish life was never ending,

And all good things, they say, never last


Uptown with your Darling Nikki in her Raspberry Beret

You gave permission to Lets Go Crazy

With every song you gave us an Escape

An undeniable belief This could be us

In our own Paisley Park

you showed us our Groovy Potential

With every riff of your Guitar

With every step of your strut

You showed us your Musicology

With your eclectic swag

You left many feeling like the most beautiful girl in the world

Praying let me Feel U uP and "I wanna be your lover"

Pleading to be the Future Baby Mama

Wondering How come you don't call me Anymore


Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish life was never ending,

And all good things, they say, never last


After All the Midnights in the World i will never forget you

I will keep Dreamin' About You

Thank you for being living proof

Dreamers do succeed

and conquer every Big City

Leading to Emancipation

From Dear Mr. Man

To challenge every Controversy

during the Days of Wild

and not Breakdown

chasing AnotherLove

Your Genious got Better with Time

covered in FunkNRoll

Your wisdom worth its weight in Gold

There was never a What If

Only a U know

and one day Eye No

Everybody loves me

From Baltimore

To the Wall of Berlin

if you "don't worry about what the crowd does"

and "focus on doing what you love"

Longevity is a definite


Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish life was never ending,

And all good things, they say, never last


It is true

No one Compares to U

I will stay Face Down and pray

Please Kiss

My mind

Turn back and rewind

so we can Get Loose and Fallinlovetonight

And act our age, not our shoe size

this Cinnamon Girl wanted one chance to see you laugh in the Purple Rain

Under God , Soft and Wet

As our auras met

Forever heartbroken and melancholy

This is what it feels like When Doves Cry

so while you are above Planet Earth

Show me who is Good love

Lit by Incense and Candles

Please send down Diamonds and Pearls

to light the path to my Free

I will keep you Forever in My Life

You freed yourself

Save a place for me

And my surrendering soul

After I create my Future Soul Song

But before the April snow surrounds


loveSexy 3rdEyeGirl


Sometimes it snows in April

Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad

Sometimes I wish life was never ending,

And all good things, they say, never last


Excuse me

Am I being Delirious

but is this really

Goodbye

Because i would Die 4 u

Hola mi gente!

Every April I write 30 poems/scenes in 30 days. I used to post them on my individual artist page www.simonenikkole.com . The old ones are still there. I am in the process of updating that site (the format changed and locked me out years ago) which is why i am using the company site now.

You can still see a few poems from the #30in30 on that site if you click the link above.


Since this April is 20 years in poetry, my anniversary poem will be very special. After Apr 21, I will post my 30 in 30 for National poetry month (at least the first 21 pieces).

I usually end up with bonus pieces because certain numbers are sacred to me like 3, 8 and 11. I usually end up writing more than one poem on those days.


Stay tuned for the #napowrimo2020 30 in 30 posts!


Love always,

AZÚCAR
