    I used to know you
    in those Revolutionary dayz
    when body parts where not
    parts of the of conversations
    saving lives was the name of our game
    Looking for the struggle in the faces of everyone even us

    Things changed,
    body parts became constants parts
    of the chess board
    our conversation evolved the same way our bodies grew
    crew got deeper and deeper and contact was never the sport

    I used to know you when rocking Nikes
    was a way of life with no consequence
    still a little kid in your eyes, but mutual respect is what keeps us near
    deep conversations and late night talks
    end with passionate kisses
    empty hopes

    so many pretty pennies with holes in them
    I bet
    I still can spin them
    I used to know you then

    no guessing in this game
    can you play?
    the ball is in your court
    I made the first move will you
    follow through, or just run away?
    will our friendship remain the same
    or turn to something more
    these corny lines in this POEM

    I hate the way things happened sometimes
    cause the only way I know how to express
    is through a simple kiss or a poem
    you just happen to get both?


    that does not mean that I know you well but it imeans I am not sure of the cirucumstance in which I we you us can to be locked in lips...

    I want to foul out so you can make that field goal....

    I love this!! Seems we all have our experiences with those we give our hearts to not knowing what the future holds or even what the opposite party holds in their heart emotionally for us.
