GRAF by Motion directed by Eklipz feat Zion

… in reMemory of the legendary graf artist Kase2 & all the midnite writers.

You can’t catch it

just snatches in frames that

fly past windows

inscripted in insidious

crevices and corners

scrawled on concrete slabs

of underpass

hush

eyes peeled to feel the pressure

of fingers pressed on spray can tips

aerated shades

grow bold in phases

stage impromptu shows at the

sides of the road

It Burns

layin on lost walls

for the next eyes

they too will wonder why

these spaces found favour in the

eyes of midnite writers

scribes who

spray legacies of heiro’s

on the edge of city scapes

they’ll outlast our past

even when our last breath escapes

these dwellers create

carved calligraphies

script on brick

tattooed tags stain train skin

impromptu  impression

impressin dimension

destination,  eternal

so lost walls become

heaven

Where Did You Go?

by Amahnee

Your melt in my mouth melanin lingers

Like the bitter after-taste of longing

I keep searching the contours of my skin

For the remnants of your kisses –

The atlas to my dotted line desires.

Tongue like a felt tip pen

You bleed through my flesh

And stain the innermost

Like a ghost

Phantom touches on my chest.

Where did you go?

Midnight imaginings tick- tick- ticking the time away

As I create your vision in the mezzanine of my mind

Crayola dreams

‘Cause when I think of you, I tend to wax-poetic

But this mosaic of memory falters on the precipice

So I let my eyes lay in the darkness a little bit longer

And feed this hunger

To the resonating rhythm of a heart drummed beat

Where did you go?

Tiptoeing thoughts maraud my body

Snatching emotions from the depths

Hopes crash against my lashes

And lights ricochet off the lens

The sky raises its diadem, mocking a defeated night

And I sense my soul’s mutiny wading in the waters

Waiting

Waiting

Where did you go?
