    Did You Say

    I thought I heard you say the words..."I want you", come out your mouth
    I also heard what you didn't say, that's why I live in doubt

    On certain days when I cross your mind, you'll pick up the phone and call,
    but other times when I need you, I can't seem to find you at all

    In this life, the door swings both ways, not just at your peck and call
    I've been trying to climb that wall you built, but always seem to fall

    Are you afraid to get your feet wet?
    or, is this "hit & miss" tag game all I get?

    You seems to always be to me, somewhere between... near and far,
    and I never know, from time to time, exactly where you are

    Did I hear you say...I need you, in my life, and always by your side?
    I want to take you up on that, but I'm afraid of the "back & forth" ride

    Altho, I must admit, when you come my way, the earth moves under my feet
    and the way you have me hynotized, whenever our eyes meet

    But can I really base my heart, to a part-time fling?
    when I am more than willing, to give my all and everything?

    wait...

    Did I hear you say...I Love You?...or was it merely just a dream?
    if we intend to spend our life together, you must tell me what you mean!

    yes...
    I heard you say, what you didn't say...
    but I still need to hear you say it​

    Sometimes it's not what is said, it's all the things that aren't. Yes indeed, poet, your pen is on fire.

    You just continue to spit "the real".
    This piece takes me to a time when
    I was trippn', not sure, confused, and scared.
    But brotha put to me like you put it down
    in this piece. lol
    I can laugh about it now but is was not
    funny at all then. I have come so far.


    Much Luv

    Naww, I haven't so far...but stop in chat we do it live on the mic.
    And every friday night is Poetry night, read two pieces on the mic and be in the drawing for 1 month free membership.
    If you don't read, come anyway and listen to the rest. We're here 24/7 we're all family here.
    thanks for the love on this piece.
