I knew women were strong when I read God had split an atom with Eve
I heard the story differently.
I was taught of an adamant Eve,
Who not only had a degree
But who taught me to speak.
So forgive me if every word I utter is praise towards the black woman.
I pray for the black women.
That I could one day have the strength to match that of a black woman.
They remind us as black men, our strengths are more than just jumping and running.
But I would never jump or run away
You feel like summer days
Perfectly tempered air I could breathe until the end of my days.
I am not a prostitute.So why do I find myself
Trying to sell myself to you?
Advertising my best qualities
I catch myself dropping subtle hints
Attempting to sew a seed in your head
A reminder that I can make you feel…
Long walks on the beach
Looking into your eyes
I stretch out and reach
My hand lands with yours beside
My only demand is yours in mine.
Nothing else in mind.
Children take their time
Building their sandcastles.
We kick them over and laugh
Let’s spend the whole day together.
Wishing that we remain forever.
You sit in your throne, higher than any other woman could ever be.
I’m your King, you, my Queen deserve the better me.
We’re out of the country but this is such a beautiful state.
Seems as though time is moving at an unusual pace.
Let’s band together and march to the beat of our hearts.
If we stand together how could we fall apart?
People do too.
I never thought
I’d see the day
Where I see through, you..
It All Falls Down.
Things Fall Apart.
Cracks in your crown,
Pierce in my heart.
I wish you were mine.
I wish to be blind.
Because now I’m finding
The castle I spent my precious time designing
was made of sand..
You kicked it over and laughed.
