    This poem was dedicated to an ex of mines, who chose a woman whom he only known for 6 months, compared to a woman like myself whom he'd known for 4 years. The names that you see in the poem are pseudonomical names. Excuse the explicit language in it, but I was very emotional when I wrote this:

    I feel that we should break up
    And I can tell you why
    You`re still in love with Cicely
    That`s what you can`t deny
    Our friendship seems so shattered
    I don`t know what to do
    I always thought that you loved me
    And I loved you too
    I feel so **** heartbroken
    I don`t know how to react
    The impression you`re giving me is to
    Kiss your ***
    I`ve been a good girlfriend
    For you that`s not enough
    I feel that all you expect me to do
    Is meet with you and ****
    I`ll wait `till I get married
    To make commitments like that
    But you want it here and now
    So hit the road jack
    I thought we had a future
    Way down the road
    But you don`t even love me
    That is what I am told
    The Lord is by my side
    No matter what you say
    In four years or less
    I`ll have a career on my way
    You never send me any gifts
    To even make me smile
    I never screwed around behind your back
    I`ve been solid ground
    But you don`t even see that
    You`ve changed over the years
    That this relationship eventually have to disappear
    I`ve had a good Easter
    What about you?
    I learned that is the Resurrecrtion Of Christ
    I hope you did too
    So you can have Cicely
    I`ll never shed a tear
    All I can say is that you let that
    woman interfere
    You didn`t know her as long as you have known me
    But you choose her instead
    To talk to and be around
    And mess around in bed
    I called you several times last week
    You`re either gone or sleep
    I wish that we could get back to us being you and me
    But that is impossible
    For that to come about
    You refuse to cooperate
    So yeah, I feel left out
    I asked if you wanted to break up
    You told me "I don`t know"
    You still have feelings for Kendra and Cicely
    And that`s how part of that goes.
    You can`t make a decision
    Of who you wanna have
    You say `I love you` to three different women.
    So you do the math
    I know you have things to do
    So go and do your stuff
    But I suggest that we should or shall I say considered as
    broken up.

    The End

    indeed the choice was made
    it's his bed he done laid
    one's lost another gain
    no need to play his crazy game
    his heart was fake
    cast no love
    only wanted the jewels

    happy u save one self to be wedd
    this a sweet reminder for the young
    before they think about da bed

    unto the mighty Father above
    whom hold u up strong
    it was by faith u did no wrong
    one day u will cross again
    but for now ya'll be just friendz
    let one continue his feast
    but in the end he will be taken
    by da beast of self emotions

    U did right , get him out ya sight
    no need to fuss no need to fight
    close da door say bye bye & good night!
    is chance is done tyme for another one
    a true love and respect ya wishies
    dis piece was sealed with kisses of truth

    Tyteeeeeeeeeee!!!

    Nice...very nice.

    Keep it movin'...just keep it movin'. As Rich said, his lost is someone else's gain...so, there's no need to :cry: or :bawling:. Lost :luvv: is difficult to deal with...and I know you must be :mad:. You felt like :bazooka: and :uzi: him. But, don't. His :spank: is coming.

    Here is a :grouphug: from the Destee.com Family.

    :thanks: for sharing

    Thank you so much, Monetary. That really cheered me up. I am going to try my hardest to get over him. There are plenty of men out there. And I am not going to let him stop my show. I am going to keep on going like I am supposed to.
