    ~spoken word fave~ :)


    I NEVA asked you for nothin…
    I know I’m usin bad Anglish...but you know exACTLY what I'm sayin .

    I NEVA complained…NEVA whined….NEVA ****** witcho credit cards…

    NEVA asked yo *** for nothin

    See,
    I had a picture of a WE thang that, come to find out, you knew nothin about ~

    “If I got it, you got it”…that was my motto…so
    imagine how I felt when the **** ended and I actually sat down and took into account all that went down

    MONEY….baby, it didn’t matter cuz you was my man…
    but I now I see that I was always reachin in my purse for you

    TIME…*****, we both had responsibilities, but I made sure yo *** got all my quality time…

    CONCERN…I’m trynna remember when you EVAH took the time to listen to me when I had a problem….I seem to only see the times I spent bein yo shrink, proppin yo *** up…strokin yo **** ego…

    SEX…well…I knew I was the FREAK of yo desire…the way you had to have it any time of the day told me all you didn’t say…

    But here I was thinking we together, a team…united in LUV and purpose…
    having each other’s backs and it was all good…kept thinking
    things would turn out all right and you’d do right by me cuz it was just that you had some situations and yo babys’ mamaz was always on you…

    I could wait


    so I waited…and I LUVDED you in spite of the emptiness mountin inside my soul…

    and I waited…

    and after almost 16 years…I look back and have to laugh at my own **** self…

    cuz I NEVA asked you for nothin!!!!…

    Yes!

    It would seem that your soul would run dry from sharing so much of it with us (I'm glad it doesn't)--I loved the use of vernacular for this flow--it added that something that makes it real to me--Ra :glasses:
