    Do you love her?
    Like I love you?


    You see me
    I know you do

    And all the changes this life
    Has put me through

    You stood there with her
    And you said I do .........

    I never said I do
    Because I didn't

    I have loved you for eternity
    An endless minute

    You see,

    If I do not love you
    In the ways that I do

    We're thru

    No more me
    No more you

    My love has no purpose
    It simply just is

    Love for the sake of love

    He is mine
    I am his

    But I need to know
    So I can grow

    Reach my woman-hood

    Do you love her?
    Like I love you?


    I don't understand how you could

    Does she make you happy
    As much as I make you free?

    Does she ignite your delight
    Like the light witin me?

    Does she create and manifest you
    And accept your divine pride?

    Is she afraid to be brave
    And let you inside?

    Do you love her?
    Like I love you?


    My spirit said daddy
    And so you appeared!

    My spirit said brother
    Protect me in the times that I feared!

    My spirit said son
    And you looked up lovingly at me.

    But now my spirit says husband
    Will you marry me?

    Do you love her?
    Like I love you?


    Perhaps cupid is a myth
    That carries a spear

    Perhaps he has pierced my heart
    Because the emotion is there

    Perhaps I slept with him
    But I was not awake

    I don't really care
    How many lifetimes it will take

    For you to know
    That she can't possibly love you

    The way that I do.

    Do you love her?
    Like I love you?


    And how do I love you
    Well,
    You can count all the ways

    I love you tomorrow
    today
    and all my yesterdays

    In fact,

    Your love is the only thing
    that I will admit to be slave

    I love you from the cradle
    All the way to the grave

    If krishna had no radha
    And cat had no nip

    I'd wish we were siomese twins
    joined at the hip

    If hip had no hop
    And the sky had no blue

    If inspector had no gadget
    And juice had no crew

    If common had no sense
    And pinky no brain

    My love for you
    Would still be insane

    If nothing else existed
    If none had a care

    My love for you
    Would continue to be there

    You can tell me if,

    You love her?
    Like I love you?

    Can you look me right in my heart
    And tell me that you do because I wish that you would.

    No,

    Well I didn't think that you could.

    And it's only a matter of time
    That she'll have to accept the fact that you're

    Mine.

    I've finally defined a selfless

    Mine.

    (And that's us)

    This was painfully beautiful.

    It brought to mind the song "Congratulations" by Vesta Williams.

    My favorite lines were these:
    That made me THANK about some thangs!

    NO...

    i look at you...knowing there is no way
    to cleanse, or erase, the mistakes i've made
    or ease the pain, and hurt, i've caused
    nor all the time, and happiness, we've lost

    by what i've done

    no one can love me...the way that you do
    no one is as beautiful, passionate, or true
    with all the depth...of a generous soul
    your love goes beyond the accomplishments told

    it wasn't my goal

    to hurt you...or cause you pain
    to bring heartache...and all the rain
    that's entered your life...because of me
    when ALL you've offered...is a calming sea
    of wondrous joy...and a gentle touch
    i know i've saddened you...but i need you so much

    yes...I LOVE YOU

    don't let our journey be ended by this
    ...this crook in the road of continued bliss
    mistakes i've made. i'm sorry for this
    let me share my heart...and happiness

    WITH YOU.​



    SOMETIMES, WE'RE LED ASTRAY, WILLFULLY. SOMETIMES, WE MAKE MISTAKES, AND NEED FORGIVENESS. HOW TO DETERMINE WHICH IS WHICH IS A TASK I DON'T ENVY YOU...BUT, IF YOU LOVE HIM, YOU MUST TRY. BEAUTIFUL, BUT SAD, FLOW. follow your heart.

    the river floweth.

    In times of old
    I looked so deeply at you
    Thru the eyes of an innocent child
    but yet those same eyes where
    the eyes of an aged spirited woman

    In my youth
    The Truth
    You demanded that I see you, the real you
    Not through the worldly eyes of lust
    And you gained my trust
    My admiration and respect

    You've made not one mistake
    With regard to the essence of my being
    And I somehow managed to get lost
    Thrown off the course
    In my determination to overcome
    The only love that I ever knew

    You

    As the world presented,

    All the options of what love might be
    No matter where I was or where you were on the path
    You never forgot about me

    How could I be so blind
    Not to see
    That you where the one
    Every definition of love and sexy

    Your heart is the symbol of home
    Even if I walk alone
    Your spirit is my spirit
    And I know how you feel
    You've peaked me to an ecstacy
    Where love is for real

    I couldn't have learned to be an upright woman
    If you were not an upright man

    So in my realization and awakening
    to the woes of my former ways
    You have been the blessing that has healed my heart

    And I love you too...

    Always!

    Peace Ms. Lady:
    This is a very beautiful piece here.
    I felt your every word deeply.

    This line in the original piece


    "My love has no purpose
    It simply just is"


    Had me smh...I feel you.

    and this verse in the response to baller's
    flow back:


    "In my youth
    The Truth
    You demanded that I see you, the real you
    Not through the worldly eyes of lust
    And you gained my trust
    My admiration and respect"


    Oh my goodness...

    Much enjoyed the read.

    baller:
    You flowed it back most perfectly with that beautiful baller
    poetic style that I luv

    Sister 4EverLuv

    Thank you kindly.....

    Brother Baller

    Thank you and your welcome.... whatever I don't have or get right now is saving my life.... but me tinks it's in the bag....

    Brother Hodee:

    Thank you very much

    And

    yes, he does

    love her as much as I love him.... the only difference is I love myself as much as he loves both of us.... and that makes our love innocent and would never give either of us the ability to hurt the other.... she hurt him and same as another hurt me but loving each other spiritually has given us the definition of forgiveness....

    thank you for asking.....
