    (Response to why I ain't married yet)


    When I think about an everlasting love
    The one like I never had
    It is a fad to think about hearts
    The kind that stay together
    Weather through the storm and the norm
    Of falling apart
    When i start to fall for the man
    Who I wish will catch me
    Will he truely be free from the other lover
    Or will i one day discover
    Undercover
    Behind closed doors
    Hide a way
    Hang outs
    under spots
    and talk abouts
    She
    Meaning me
    Don't mean nothing to you
    Meaning another no good
    Robbing heart hood
    Stealing my love
    Not that this is what he is thinking of'
    When I try to commit
    To some intimates of
    One plus One
    The sum is always more than three
    You
    Me
    Her and she
    Maybe that works for others
    But I need one lover
    For me to believe
    I'm worthy of all of his portions
    Ain't I enough?
    Ain't I enough?
    Ain't I....?
    Or is the prize only given
    To the baby's mama
    For best series
    In an ongoing drama
    Pretending way past that
    She pretending to be over you
    Everybody
    Including both of y'all
    Knowing that ain't true
    'Cept you can't see through
    garnished checks
    arguements
    so-called drunken mistakes
    That make more little men and women
    To raise themselves
    From the hell raised beteween y'all
    All the while
    You askin' me
    To stall you out
    When I talk about
    Spending some time
    Instead of wasting mine
    See, me
    I ain't trying' to be
    A causualty
    In your war
    The love you had before
    Still fighting it
    'Cause you can't come to grip
    About love that neverends
    Way back whens
    and
    "She just my friend...."


    When I think
    About an everlasting love
    The kind I dream of
    The kind I never had
    I close my eyes
    And then I.....
    WAKE UP!
