    New ways of thinking
    from me to us
    am i going to invest the time
    developing trust
    I watch how you move
    swift, sure and corrupt
    is this your professional life
    or a 24/7 strut?
    confusing when I cant
    separate this life from that
    when im willingly giving you
    all I that I got
    when I am showing you daily
    how this could be
    and you pushing while trilling
    ****, even I tire of me
    insecure left wondering enough or too much
    are you taking applications
    to continue to fulfill your lust
    or are you willing to take a stand
    to show me, cuz **** the world
    and all them girls,
    that you instead are my man
    I have begrudgingly confided,
    perhaps misguided, that I really don't care
    long as I dont see the affair
    as long as they don't cross me
    long as my phone don't ring
    and my eyes don't see
    long as my heart doesn't feel abused
    cuz truth speaks my reality and all I need is you
    retention seems locked in remaining drama free
    I dont care if they laugh, they dont know me
    they dont see us building to tomorrow
    and i certainly dont see you chasing last night
    instead your fire for me continues burning bright
    so im trying too,
    add to this empire
    you started to build
    figuring how to build towards a future
    while stacking chips from yesterday
    makes me hungry for this life
    makes me sure I could be your wife
    just want us to remain just like this
    cuz loving you is a soul deep kiss
    I wait late into the night
    for runs to be done,
    and before its over to sleep i succumb
    I wake whole in your powerful embrace
    acknowledging we both home and safe
    your head falls in forgiveness as I eye the clock
    but I was only thinking I love this man I got

    Sister Poet Randee,

    Wonderful! This poem is brave, bold and textural. Your rhyme scheme, though simplistic, is pleasing to the ear. Thoroughly enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing.
