    how do i know
    you'll like the girl you see
    when you look into my eyes
    and finally see me

    how do you know
    the way you'll feel when the sunshine stops
    and no raindrops start
    to hide your tears

    i'm not the one your mama knew
    the girl next door
    you sister's best friend
    i'm your first class whore

    how do i know
    you can find your faith
    when your blood turns cold
    cause i'm in your veins

    how do i know
    just how strong you'll stand
    when the earthquake rocks
    the world you thought you knew

    i'm not just a prima donna
    a ghetto fabulous queen
    i don't just make an entrance
    honey, i make the scene

    don't come to me with your how do you dos
    i'm not impressed by a parlez vous
    i need to feel not hear my i love yous
    i sip jungle wine and piss the dew

    how do i know
    you'll wanna come back in
    if i open the door
    and say i need a friend

    how do i know
    you'll still feel the passion
    when my belly's big and
    i cry all nite cause i'm bout to bust

    i'm not your fly by night
    funky one-night stand
    can you handle this
    can you understand?

    Oh my GOD, this is off the hook.

    Beautiful flow. Sista, you came with it.

    This got me. I was like.... I can't say it here...it'll get banned. hahahahahaa

    This poem is very very good.

    I'd love to hear it in voice chat. So, go and get a mic if you don't have one. I'm serious...dead serious. Can't wait. I'll keep your seat warm for you. ;)


    Thanks for sharing.

    :toast: :D

    Monetary - if you keep this up, I might start believing it!

    As it is iI know accidents happen , and sometimes they turn out good. Glad this was one of those times.

    As for the voice chat, I'm working on building up the nerve - gimme time!
