    Coming down

    To face the low

    The sand at the bottom of the ocean

    That fell way down under to lay a foundation of a bottomless soul

    The crud and the anger released

    The jokes that turned my smile into a frown

    Laying at the bottom, disgusted

    That I let myself be brought down to the level of your mental dilemas

    Your hang ups

    Trying to figure out

    What that had to do with me

    But more so disgusted to catch

    The blows of your body language

    Boldly unsaid however clearly understood

    How arrogant you were to me

    And to know that I'm still not over it

    Oh, brother

    How could you do it to me


    In a world of isolation
    For a sister
    To distance me more
    Knowing that with you I could breathe

    I pray that one day you will gain all sense of hope
    I pray that one day you'll see the gifts that you have
    Are appreciated and used
    That you will rise above the same ole same ole rigamoroe

    You're back again
    But I wasn't happy to see you this time around
    In fact
    I had a physical reaction
    And wished that I wasn't alive

    You make me sick :sick:
    When your attitude
    "Is suck my d*ck"
    I aint ya trick

    You need my brains and I need yours
    To deny me
    Is to deny yourself

    But you cut my throat so that you can get yours

    I feel cold toward you these days
    And I wish I didn't feel this way toward anyone

    I pray that the Lord will show me
    That my anger
    Is true to your love
    That my shame is my honor
    That I rise when you rise above
    That I feel free to see you free

    That in a way you are connected to me

    Because we need eachothers love

    So deeply

    Like Glayds, You are the best thing that ever happened to me

    We struggle through love
    Not understanding what is love
    We humble ourselves because HE IS LOVE
    And our true confessions
    Are so raw in the moment that I unravel
    When you own it
    I hope that you know it

    I'm coming down
    And I know it.

    Perhaps both of you can be uplifted, but if not, get yourself back up to sea level. Some tides can be harsh. So glad to be reading you, poetess.

    Referee: 1!, 2!,...

    "Ok evry'body!

    I'm up, I'm up."-D.S.

    Scene:
    In the ring in the corner
    In my boxing gloves
    And boxing trunks
    One eye bruised and swollen.

    Watzinaname is giving me water and changing my mouthpiece
    Rich is dabbing vasaline on my cuts
    Da Street So'ja, is giving me strategy.

    All right I'm up. Hee, hee, hee.

    Thanks for stopping by my forum leaders and moderators.

    One Luv Ya's

    DS
