SHE TRUST’S ME WITH HER HEART

SO I SHOW HER OUR LIFE IN REVERSE FROM ENDING TO START

I’M HER DAY & SHE’S MY NIGHT

THE IRIS TO WHAT SHE SEE’S THROUGH HER EYES

 

IN 

 

HER LIFE I’M THE ANSWERS TO HER WHY

OR THE REASON SHE CATCHES HER BALANCE  AS SHE SLIDES

THE TRUTH IS NO WORDS NEED TO BE SAID

THAT’S WHY I’LL  ALWAYS POP UP IN HER HEAD

 

I

 

NEVER SPARE MY THOUGHTS

CAUSE IM ALWAYS WILLING TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL I’VE GOT

WE ARE FLIMSY PEBBLES, BUT COMBINED SOLID LIKE A ROCK

UNBREAKABLE EVEN IF DROPPED

UNPARALLELED  BECAUSE WHAT WE’VE FORMED IS A BOND

 

I AM

 

DEEP & UNFETTERED LIKE YOUR DREAMS

I LIKE HOW YOU SEEM

THE CREATIVITY TO LOVES SCHEME

AS LONG AS YOU’RE PART OF MY TEAM

CONCRETE

DEEP DOWN YOU KNOW THE STORY; IF NOT I HOPE YOU GET THIS

IM ASTONISHED

HOW IM ASSOCIATED WITH A MODERN DAY GODDESS

 

I

 

CAN SEE THROUGH ALL YOUR LAYERS

THE REST SEE THE FASCADE

& I SEE LONGING THAT INCLUDES PRAYERS

THEY TAKE & ALL I DO IS RELATE

BY NOW YOU KNOW WHAT I FEEL ISNT FAKE

 

YOU

 

EXPECT NOTHING LIKE YOU’RE NOT WORTHY

& I SAY SOMETHING BECAUSE MY HEART’S YEARNING

LIKE I GOT DOWN ON BOTH KNEES & GOD HEARD ME

& HE HEARS YOU TOO

THAT’S WHY WHEN I COME AROUND IT’S ONLY ME & YOU

 

THIS

 

IS MORE THAN JUST A STATEMENT

& MY LOVE IS WHAT CONCRETE IS TO THE PAVEMENT

SO I’LL BE THE THEORY TO YOUR RELEVANCE

THE THOUGHT OF YOUR INTELLIGENCE

THE MAN ABOVE ALL MEN

IN OTHER WORDS EMOTIONALLY WITH ME YOU WIN

LEFT

THIS MIGHT BE WRONG

BUT IF I WANT CAN I PLAY YOU LIKE A CD ON A SONG

THAT MAKES NO SENSE

BUT DID YOU EVER THINK WE WOULD END UP LIKE THIS

WHERE SOMEONE GETS LEFT BEHIND

 

THE

 

TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE, SO WHAT WE HAD WASNT A LIE

JUST A CHAPTER THAT NEVER GOT A FINAL REPLY

THIS IS MY BOOK SO READ IT IF YOU DECIDE

THAT YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND WHO I AM INSIDE

 

TRYING

 

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WE CREATED

LOVE IS COOKED & YOU WERE THE HEAD CHEF THAT MADE IT

OR THE MASSEUSE THAT RUBS ME THE RIGHT WAY

NO WORRIES CAUSE MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER SWAY

IN OTHER WORDS I FEEL WE BELONG; EVEN THOUGH YOU DIDNT STAY

 

THE

 

NIGHTS ALMOST DONE

TILL I SEE A TEXTED PICTURE OF YOU FEELING LIKE MINES HAS JUST BEGUN

A LOT OF WRITTING MIXED IN WITH GLASSES OF RUM

FROM YOU I EXPECTED NOTHING

YET I FELT WE WERE ARTIST READY TO PAINT SOMETHING

 

SPECIAL

 

FREESTYLE WITH NO REHEARSAL

THE STATUESQUE PIECE ON MY PEDESTAL

THE ANCHOR TO MY VESSEL

 

NOW

 

I HEAR THE EMPTYNESS OF AIR BLOWING INTO A WHISTLE

THE HOLLOW SOUND OF WATER IN A LONELY HOME AS IT TRICKLES

THE WEIGHT OF A LOST LOVE AS IT DROPS ON ME LIKE A MISSLE

THAT’S HOW IT FEELS

WHEN EVERYTHING MOVES, BUT YOUR MIND STANDS STILL

MY CUPS OUT READY TO BE FILLED

SENTIMENTS

A RIFT WAS CREATED BETWEEN SELF REALIZATION & SELF ACTUALIZATION

SO, LETS PERPETUATE THAT I’M SIPPING ON LIFE IN MY CUP

& YOU’RE PART OF THE ADDITIVES MIXED IN THIS STUFF

THAT’S GIVING ME COSMIC THOUGHTS ON WHAT I’VE DRUNK

 

I’M

 

HAVING FUN

WITH THESE WORDS & THE WEEKEND HASN’T EVEN BEGUN

SENTIMENTS BY ME ARE FELT & NEVER SPUN

YOU’RE MY TRACK STAR & THE FINISH LINE IS LOVE; SO RUN

 

THEREFORE 

 

I BREATHE AIR

ONLY IN YOUR ATMOSPHERE

& CHANNEL YOUR THOUGHTS EVEN WHEN YOUR TELEVISIONS NOT CLEAR

TO THE POINT YOU ASK YOURSELF WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE

LETTING OUR GUARD DOWN WITH NO FEAR

HAVING A GOOD LIFE WITH YOU MY DEAR

THESE WORDS ARE COMING OUT OF MY SOUL

LOVE IS A STATE,BUT YOU’RE MY NATION

YOU’RE MY UNION & OUR LOVE THE FEDERATION

 

&

 

SINCE YOU’RE NOT HERE I WRITE WHAT YOU CANT SEE

AND I BREATHE

WHAT YOU CANT HEAR ME SPEAK

SO; GLAD THAT YOU HAVE LOVE FOR ME

TRAVEL

YOU CALL ME ON THE PHONE

KNOWING IT’S WRONG

CAUSE I HAVE A GIRL, BUT YOU FEEL WE BELONG

YOU HAVE A MAN BUT EMOTIONALLY YOU FEEL ALONE

I KNOW

 

SO

 

YOU CONTINUE WITH THE CALL

TO HEAR MY VOICE HOPING THAT IT’S ON

OR MY VOICEMAIL TO HEAR MY TONE

I’M NOT PHYSICALLY THERE ,BUT MY FEELINGS HAVE NEVER GONE

I PLAY ANY POSITION & NOT SCARED TO LET IT BE KNOWN

 

MY

 

FEELINGS ARE NOT LIKE A CELL PHONE

CAUSE MY LOVE WILL NEVER ROAM

SEEING YOU WOULD OF BEEN FUN

WHAT IF I ASKED YOU TO SPEND THE NIGHT

WOULD YOU GET ON STAGE OR GET STAGE FRIGHT

 

ALSO

 

IT WAS 12:43 IN THE MORNING TO BE EXACT

I DIDNT HAVE MY PHONE SO I COULDNT TEXT BACK

WHAT IF I SAID YES; IM IN TOWN COME BY

WOULD YOU OF DONE THAT

NO MAKE UP JUST YOU AND YOUR  HAND BAG

WITH A WINTER SKULL CAP

THAT’S HOW I IMAGINE IT AT THE WESTMARK

 

IT’S

 

FUNNY HOW I GIVE YOU THIS VERSION

OF US SINCE IT FEELS REAL RATHER THAN MY IMAGINATION

THAT MAKES YOU WONDER LIKE PORNOGRAPHIC PERVERSION

AT THE END OF THE DAY IN PRIVATE I AM  THE DELEGATION

OF WHAT THE WORLD OFFERS YOU IN REPARATION

SO SMILE CAUSE I’AM TAILORED TO YOUR SPECIFICATION

IT

DIGEST YOUR LIFE, HOPE YOU LIKE THE PLATTER
I STACK UP ON LOYALTY & LOVE IN TWO CALL US  THE TWIN TOWERS
LIKE GLASS WITHOUT YOU I’LL HIT THE FLOOR & SHATTER
 
I’M
 
IMPERFECT,BUT YOU MAKE ME FEEL FLAWLESS
I’VE BEEN HURT BEFORE,BUT YOU MAKE ME FEEL SCARLESS
GOOD OR BAD YOU’RE A VIRTUE SO I LOVE YOU REGARDLESS
TRUE LOVE IS WHAT I CALL IT
 
FIRE
 
BURNS & ICE MAKES YOU SHIVER
WHILE I TRY TO LEAVE NOTHING UNTURNED TO MAKE YOU A WINNER
SOMETHING THAT YOU ALREADY ARE BUT HAVE NEGLECTED SO FAR
APPEASING TO OTHERS 
JUST LIKE A DIME IS A DIME,BUT US TOGETHER
IS LIKE ADDING A NICKEL TO MAKE US A QUARTER

ANGEL

My angel is pretty

when she looks at herself in the mirror in private she see’s me

just cause she may not talk about me

doesn’t mean she doesn’t think about me

 

so

 

keep thinking

that she wont need me where she’s going

you can erase the present, but never the moment

especially with her knowing

that I was always loving her more than what I was showing

 

wishing

 

that things played out

the way I felt when they first came out my mouth

when I would write her poems & notes

just signs of her being my love

 

if

 

we were ever to be alone

would I feel the same; I don’t know

would I embrace her or would I just get up & go

these are deep questions that agony wont let me show

feeling like I should of stayed a player instead of letting my emotions flow
