The Ex; by me

Let’s Kiss Again

imageWhen two people love each other…it usually doesn’t end because they stop loving each other

But because they stop trying to

After ‘hurt’ comes a choice……………………..

To talk or stay silent….to stand and risk rejection ….or leave and guarantee it………………………

If we let pride come in the way of ‘I love you’….then love has no place to go…..

For me I just made a important decision in my life………………………………………………………….

“I’m yours to have……you’re mine to have….I want to be your friend….I want to be your smile….I want to be your happiness……………..”

You might be a movement on your own but I want us to be a force when we are together

I want to feel complete when I’m with you

I want us to learn to love each other in and out of time……..And I mean….in…..and…and out of time

There may be times you may hurt me without realizing it……and there may be times I may hurt you without realizing it too

….But I think of what I feel for you when I say…”I love you”

Love is not a condition that works on some days and not on others………..

Love is not a feeling……Love is a discipline

If I say “I love you”, I say it and practice it even when you anger me..even when you hurt me and time stops still and I feel I can’t go on no more…

Love is not an emotion………Love is an attitude

“I swear I don’t ever want to hurt you…..together we’ve made this decision……together we must learn to live up to it…

I love you

We gonna start all over again……..and when we meet………………………’I want you to kiss me…like it was the first time’.

Growing up

Out of the Rat Race!

imageThe shelved Ambitions

As we awake even before our

Dreams begin

Drag our bodies to the shower

Prepare a quick toast

And walk out the door

Five mornings a week

Before the sun can claim the

Day as it’s own

 

Mounting Pressures

As adulthood piles up

Responsibilities and making ends

meet

Loved ones asking

For a loaf of bread

And the chosen of them

Already entitled to a fixed

percentage

 

Dreams fading

As they seem less impossible

With each laboring day…

Stuck in the rat race that

Affords you no pause

No luxury

Even for your protruding pregnancy

 

Till you scream it Ends Now

Till you utilize the knowledge

Accumulated at College

Only theorized before now

And allow them refine your able

hands

Knowledge put to wisdom

Ready to create and mold

A visionary entrepreneur

Into the world’s next Business Giant!

fearful love

Something Black and Me

Coax me out of my most guarded

hiding place…

so I can love you

kiss you…

without hindrance

let me be myself before you

Yeah I’m a lady with class

and attitude

but more than that I’m me

and I make mistakes

let me undress

undress my heart

It beats for you

undress my soul

its still a girl

undress me…I ain’t so pretty inside

a walk with me; delightful

a smooth drive; delirious

but life with me

a journey of tears

and laughter

a continuous withdrawal from our

love’s bank account

so uproot those ideas

of a perfect woman

and allow me to giggle

and let me show you me

and see if you still love me

coz I love me so much

and I think your heart will love me.
