    I think, my brother, you are caught up in my looks.
    Does it matter at all to you if I’ve ever read a book?
    You say my voice sounds seductive and oh, so, sexy?
    Do you care about my emotions or if I suffer from anorexy?

    While you are salivating over the beauty that will one day fade away
    I’ll hip you to some facts about me that will leave you in dismay.
    Educated I am so don’t get the hood in me twisted
    I know how to hold my own…come out swinging double fisted

    I’ve had some fun but, yes…I am still a virgin at heart
    You offering to make me feel young again is absolutely off the chart
    Try getting to know me first. Ain’t you interested in where my head is at?
    I guarantee if you take the time you will see that my love is phat

    From my head to my feet I’m all woman…ain’t nothing here artificial
    But you always complimenting my physical beauty is nothing short of superficial
    I love to laugh to Dave Chappell but The Bridges of Madison County makes me cry
    I can dance all night to Jayz and then put it down to the smooth, groove of Brian McKnight.

    Why do you become an introvert and start acting all shady?
    When you’re like that I won’t respond to you ‘cause I’m such a f***ing lady!
    When I IM you please be kind to respond. You know I can see you’re online.
    If I call you…reciprocate and call me back or be man enough to decline

    You see, I just ain’t got time for silly little games. You the one that came at me!
    If my company ain’t what you want then man up and let me be
    I might be hurt at first but I guarantee you the next fish in the sea..
    will appreciate what I’m all about and not get caught up in only what he see’s

    see i told you, you have power

    this is so much power right here

    looks aren't everything (although you are attractive:bingo:) but they help

    there needs to be more

    if this person is stuck on looks how deep can they go

    i like how you're not having it anymore

    don't sell yourself short

    you are a priceless Ebony Queen

    and i respect that

    and you don't want play games

    leave the small minded men alone

    and get what are more than deserving of

    a TRUE EBONY KING

    peace my sista

    in your journey through this life

    There's so much I like about this piece, I'll comment on a couple points. You are caught up in the depths of your own many positive qualities, which unlike physical beauty, will withstand the test of time. ^5 on that. Game players? Hmph, I think there are some who have played the game so much, they don't even realize they're playing any more. Tight write, poetess.

    DSS: I'm glad you was feelin' that...it should be a good mixture of the outside and inside... This skin we in don't last too long but, oh, the knowledge and wisdom...that stays with us forever!!!

    Sis Watz: You hit the nail on the head...so busy playin' the game they dont realize they caught up in the matrix...too many of us "good" sisters get passed up because of the "game"...oh well, their loss!

    Miss Lady: I wrote this piece for a girlfriend of mine who was going through (ain't we always going through) but I ended up getting something out of it myself...thank you my sistah for the love!
