    CREEPIN…on “the low”
    You’re sharing yourself with HIM
    Whilst married to HER

    *TSK* …ain’t you ashamed ?
    I guess you aren’t….or are
    Can LOVE be to blame ?

    Love of deception?
    Love of man more than woman ?
    Love of secrets held ?

    The freedom of … CHOICE ?
    Which ever whim holds your mood ?
    Can SHE also choose ?

    Without FULL knowledge…
    Of YOUR truth…She cannot have…
    FULL control of HERS.

    So PLEASE free yourself
    And fully free her as well
    Let HEALING begin​

    Hi Akilah...miss your Haikus. Good to read from you again.




    Blue Boy Magazines...
    Yet, his wife still doesn't know.
    He's on the down low.

    Tells himself, he's straight.
    But he knows it now too late.
    AIDS is now his fate.

    His friends and his kid,
    Cannot believe what he did.
    His wife is now dead.

    Men still screwing him.
    He can't get enough of them.
    His future's real grim.

    undercover low
    brutha can't sho his secret
    she still lay in dark

    His calling become
    joyful to one and home is
    undone through stain tears

    she really does know
    fighting the unexplained pain
    so that's what it is!

    An inkling that there
    is something not right, but how
    can love be so wrong?

    He knows she loves him
    How can he lie so, sexing
    her, but wanting him?
