    You came upon me
    unexpected
    accidental
    and shook my world
    I didn't ask for it
    can't recall a single prayer
    Like a thief in the night
    would be an erroneous description
    for you cannot steal
    what has been freely
    given to you

    Slow stroke of curiousity
    blossomed into infatuation
    melted and was molded like a master craftsman
    into this four letter thing
    that I can't shake
    Lavishly licking my eardrums
    seducing my cerebral with all things
    took the common
    and made it sensual

    I'll admit it now, shamelessly
    I became pressed
    spent more time with you
    than you spent with me
    lackadaisically I strolled
    with anotha brotha
    wishing he were you
    passing time
    as visions of you danced in my head
    @#$% a sugarplum

    Like a field, I was open and free
    your personal one stop shop
    your 7-Eleven, your Burger King
    You can have it your way
    and I accepted whatever was left
    on your plate

    In loving you, and self-appointing you
    My King,
    I neglected to relish in the glory
    of my own crown
    allowed you to diminish me
    as you called me Princess
    and I thought it cute,
    endearing, relaxing
    like smooth jazz on a rainy night
    knowing all the while
    that I am a Queen.

    Yes, you were a strong, black Nubian Prince
    and I, a princess....when we were children

    But before us stands a man and a woman
    yet only one wears a crown
    I want to need you, though that desire
    brings hurt and vulnerability
    it is necessary
    to let you deep into my world

    I have to know that you want to be there
    unwavering, without doubt or reservation
    my partner, not my GOD
    Be that man for me
    that protector, provider, ever present
    in my life
    truth speaker
    lover, father to our seeds
    and gladly I will sit
    beside your throne
    and call you my King
    My Adam, and polish your crown

    You must realize
    that besides being beautiful
    with all the bells and whistles
    Your Queen, not mommi
    not broad or itch
    not skank, not chick
    not hoochie or trick
    has a crown encrusted with jewels
    set upon her head, and intelligence to spare
    I need to be stimulated on all levels
    and not just with what's between your legs
    I too, have treasure and know where its buried

    I gave you rose petals
    and yet you still chose thorns
    until the cuts ran deep
    and you began to look for home
    this time, you strayed too far from the yard
    and must find your way back
    alone
    If you wish to sit with me,
    recognize my worth as your Woman
    and all of me will open to you
    I will take my place at your side
    and watch you rule
    for life.

    I enjoyed how this read unfolded. We must know our own worth, because others, many others in fact, won't. Keep the flows coming, this was wonderful.
