    • When you read this poem out loud do it with feeling and if you like any particular line a lot repeat it and I promise you will feel him like I felt it on Poetry night at the local club. The audience did!

      A MAN OF PRESENCE

      A MAN OF PRESENCE
      STANDS BEFORE ME
      SHORT OR TALL
      MEASUREMENTS DON‘T MATTER
      NO NOT AT ALL
      HE WALKS WITH SWAGGER
      LEANS WITH GRACE
      DOESN‘T HAVE TO SPEAK AT ALL
      YOU KNOW THE BROTHER‘S IN THE PLACE
      FROM THE TOP OF HIS HEAD
      TO THE SOULS OF HIS FEET
      HE LINGERS IN THE AIR AFTER HE‘S
      PASSED THROUGH THE ROOM
      HE TOUCHES AND EMBRACES ME
      I FEEL HIM AND YET HE‘S NOWHERE, NO HOW
      WITH HIS HANDS STROKING ME
      HIS HAIR IS DREADED FOR REAL
      TRADITIONAL, NATURALLY GROWN, NATURALLY GROWN
      OR CLEAN SHAVEN, BALD, HAIR ALL GONE, HAIR ALL GONE
      HIS EYES ARE DEEP BROWN, DEEP BROWN LIKE SHIT
      HANDS STRONG & HARD YET SOFT AND SMOOTH ENOUGH
      TO CARESS ME AND HANDLE LIFE AND ALL HIS PROSPERITY
      A MAN WITH PRESENCE WAS JUST HERE, I MISSED HIM
      I HEARD ABOUT HIM
      I EVEN KNOW HIS NAME
      THE MAN WITH PRESENCE IS IN MY GRASP, IS IN MY GRASP
      HOW CAN THAT BE I HEAR YOU ASK?
      THIS MAN TO BE MINE IS CAPTURED IN A PHOTOGRAPH
      AND THE MOMENT I LAID SIGHT OF HIM I SAID WITH PASSION
      ‘DAMN I MISSED, HIM!’
      BUT ANOTHER DAY MY CHANCE WILL COME
      TO HOLD, LOVE KISS KEEP LOUNGE LAUGH AND LAY WITH THE MAN OF PRESENCE
      FOR ALL ETERNITY
