    Excuse me baby, i don't mean to stare
    but i know that i know u from somewhere

    Somewhere like what place
    u don't know me u have never seen my face

    Faces i don't forget cuz i'm a mova and a shaka
    girl u so fine and that aint no line i aint tryin to be no playa

    A playa you're not you can take those tired lines home
    cuz u aint smooth not close to cool so u can leave me alone

    If alone is what u want to be that is fine by me
    cuz there's other fish in the sea
    if u wanna be stuck up i aint gonna fuss
    cuz u aint but about a three

    This three caught your eye and we both know why just a minute ago
    i see yo game is just that lame and i just bruised yo ego

    My ego is straight u just tryin to hate but i'm gonna be ok
    cuz i'm a good man for some woman and i'm gonna have one someday
    U see there's more to me that just a pretty face
    i have nothing but good intentions that come from a good place
    my heart is what i'm referring to and i was prepared to give it to u
    but i need someone that's gonna be true
    i need someone who doesn't play games
    i need someone who's proud of herself and not ashamed
    to speak her mind and when it's time she'll let u know
    that it is fine to hold tight but at times u have to let go
    i need someone who will help me out
    i need someone to tell me she's proud
    when i overachieve and become the man
    when i asset myself and take a stand
    through the good and the bad
    through the happy and sad
    through the clears days and clouds of smoke
    when i am rich but especially now that i am broke
    i need someone who doesn't think of herself
    who likes to get but won't forget to give to someone else
    i need someone who wants to share my life
    and understands i'll be committed to my wife
    with love that doesn't have conditions or terms
    and throughout our relationship we will continue to learn
    i need someone who knows when to comfort and when to let me be
    but most of all i need someone who wants and needs me

    I understand that you're a man and the things you say to me
    but open your ears and make sure u hear the things that i need

    I need someone who will treat me with respect
    who won't talk to me any kind of way and treat me like less
    i mean don't treat me like i'm less because i'm a woman
    cuz i'm a strong black woman i can do anything he can
    i need someone who shares his feeling his thoughts and everything else as well
    i need someone who i can share with and be sure he won't tell
    i need someone who will treat me like a nubian queen
    who loves my head.. my toes.. and everything in-between
    he likes my smile.. my style.. my grace
    and even my beautiful face
    he understands that my bad mood may be from something in the past
    but he better give me space or he may need a cast
    i need a man who's not threatened by my success
    and when i beat him at something he's not afraid to confess that i am the best
    i need a man who won't be runnin the streets
    tryin to pick up every hoochie he meets
    i need someone who knows it's not him but we
    but most of all i need someone who loves me for me

    Well i think i can be all that for u
    if u give me some time i'll show u that's true

    Well that's fine cuz i see you're a man not a boy
    but i have just one question..... are u employed?

    Had to laugh as I read this one. We try to communicate, but are we really listening? This was a tight write poet.
