[#POEM] I AIN’T

[#POEM] I AIN’T

I ain’t crazy
Set in my ways maybe
Sometimes I’m lazy
But I ain’t playing
No games…
I’m not the same
Things…circumstances change
And I prayed
For you to come
Back my way
For another chance
One more opportunity
To show you who I really am
To learn you
Fall for you and
Lick you from your pussy to
Your ass…
Don’t mean to be so
Crass… but
Damn…it’s starting to hurt
Knowing I deserve
You…yet for some
Reason I can’t do
Anything to get
Your attention…
It’s killing me slowly
Hoping for something
That may only be a dream
Longing for the day
You come to me
And let me love you…
Cause I know that’s
What I am here to do…

[#POEM] THEY SAY

THEY SAY

Le Sigh…

They say be careful what
You ask for…
Baby…You are what I asked for
And much more…
Moving at a snail’s pace
But don’t count me out
I’m still in the race
I tend to chase my dreams
And it may seem
Like I’m not into you
But I do…really…really
Want you…
You know I do…
the sexual tension
between us…Sometimes
It’s hard to maneuver through
I still try to impress you
Try anything to turn your
Gray clouds blue…
Hard to tell if you
Want me or
Craving another
oh…
We’re “friends” right?
So tell me…why we keep
Running from each other…

They say
Friends are the best lovers…
Can’t tell you how many
Nights I prayed you’d walk
Back in my life
To start all over again…
I figured a fresh start…
And I could be your friend
Put an end
To the idea of an us…
I had no clue
This shit would be
Hard as fuck
But I’m a cool
Always a
Special kind of fool…
I know the game
I abide by the rules
I do me…
You do you…

They say
All is fair in love and war
I often wonder
What the hell are we waiting for…
Like we ain’t old
And life ain’t short
Putting the ball in
Each other’s court
Building forts around
Our hearts
Same ol’ shit
Knowing all of this
Aint no concidence
But would rather
Avoid it…
Maybe I’m just
Too romantic
Too soft
For you to
Fuck with…

[#AUDIO / #POEM] EVERYTYME

A new beginning for an old piece…no pun intended… ☺️

[#POEM] SERIAL MONOGAMIST

SERIAL MONOGAMIST


So yeah…
I have this horrible habit
of falling for women unavailable to
ME
in some form or fashion…

Passed by
Picked over
I’m never chosen
Something always
Happens…

I reek love…so much I believe it’s become a repellent…

But I’m a lover
I can’t help it…

I’m still healing…
Still learning…
Still growing…

Hoping I don’t leave this earth
Too soon…

Cause eventually
I’d like to marry
Someone…

Maybe…You

[#POEM] THE FINAL PURSUIT

Where do I even begin
Loving someone who doesn’t
Love you is the latest trend
Loyal ones overlooked
For lackluster lovers
While others find themselves
Repeating history
Learning the same lessons
Over and over again…
We are all seeking
More than friends
More than a lover…
I can’t deny it…
I love her
There’s no if’s, questions
Or maybe’s…
My heart woke me this morning
And declared her my Baby
Crazy it may seem
But she’s a dream
I never imagined would
Come true…
I can’t let her go…
This is my
Final pursuit…

[#POEM] THE TEA

THE TEA

I’m proud of myself
Cause I usually
Keep my feelings
Hidden…rarely do
I share them with anyone else…
So when I decided
To share how I felt
It was a big deal to me
I needed you to
Understand and feel me…
So you see
Your silence speaks loudly
I hear everything
You are saying to me…

However…the Tea?


You said we would be
Friends…
Yet I sit here wondering
If I’ll ever have the
Courage to be in
Your presence again
Wondering if I should
Walk…let it end
Before it even begins…
But I feel you like my skin
And to be honest
I wasn’t sent to be
Just a…Friend

I memorized
Every time you smiled
At me…
A slideshow of your
Beauty in photographic memory
You bring out the
Best in me
And ain’t even paying
Attention to me…
I’m just another
Suitor disturbing your
Peace…
I stare at unanswered texts
And smile to myself
Cause I see I’ve
Left you perplexed…
But I get it…
I never meant to cause
You any trouble…
I never meant to make
You wet…

This scenario
Ain’t new to me
I never let grass grow
Under my feet
When I meet Sistas
Who make my heart
Skip a beat…
Keep a beautiful
Woman next to me…
But I confess…
I am deliberately
Running from our destiny
Cause honestly I
Am afraid of how happy
We could be…
And for once in my life
I need someone to
Fight for me…

[#POEM] HAVE MERCY

HAVE MERCY

Have mercy on me
I’m not who
I used to be…
I was kind
I was honest
I was sweet…
I was giving
I was loving
I was caring
I was meek

Then she…They
Made a fool of me…
And I’m still
Healing…
