    Sweet aroma
    As I walk into the living room
    Of this man

    There were colors of knowledge and ferver
    Stimulation and history

    Concluded maybe some love making on the sofa
    The sofa was a deep, silk, dark red almost deep rose color

    House completely furnished
    From head to toe

    Indication of space
    And awareness

    Modification
    Eluminating light affects in the dining room

    Deep mohagany wooden floors
    In the family room

    Sunflower but light yellow sofa against the wall

    Feeling caved in a little
    He said "Let me have your hat and coat"

    You see this little fling was in November

    Relaxed now time passed
    As we talked about
    The past
    Love affairs

    Goals for the future
    And knowledge and pride for our people
    History had marked itself and provided for us another (better way of opportunity)

    As I picked up the clear wine glass to take a sip
    Dabbed my lips with a napkin

    Our eyes met eachother once again
    As I got up from the table

    He stopped me again
    Put his hand on my waist

    And our lips met eachother in the living room
    Again I found myself on the sofa (deep rose color)
    Reminded me of rose petals

    Our delightful surroundings and the dim lights
    Created a whirlwind of huge bursting emotions

    But pushed him away
    As if to say something isn't right

    Again he came forward and persisted sayin"Baby,is it good for you?,he started again to work my nerves and lectured me on my curves

    Then he came licking me slowly up my neck and gentlely kisses of corrections running down my clavicle bone towards my chest

    The passion was intoxicating
    But still I heard myself saying"
    Let me go"

    And he let me go
    Again we started talking again

    Leaned forward and whispered in my ear"everything's going to be alright"

    My body wanted to say yes
    Because It felt so right

    But my mind wouldn't let me stray away from the thought
    Another handsome face

    I said give me a moment to clear my head
    As I asked him calmly for a glass of water
    I seated myself on the chair

    And saw a picture of past lover's together
    I noticed and asked him who was the other person in his embrace
    Oh,as his words searched to fill in the blank momentary pauses he said,"who is she?,Oh,that's just my friend."

    I asked him to use the restroom and found yet another picture in the hall.
    This one the same another woman pretty face and again in his embrace.
    I entered the living room again
    I saw him seated in the chair

    Hesitately,I said that it just wouldn't be right
    Barely,even know you and I don't want anything to progress
    Into something I would regret

    Flashbacks of just a moment ago
    He handed me my things and we hugged and I thanked him for the nice time that we had

    The next day I recieved a phone call at my home
    I answered it and said hello

    Followed the script
    And found myself ,ladies night out evening with the girls

    Clubbin was the kind of activity of the night
    Got out the car and guess who I saw

    Him walking in the club
    With the lady in the picture in his arms

    My mind erased
    Delayed and remebered the other day we were to together talking about whatever

    I couldn't stay and I had my friend drive me back home
    I walked into my apartment
    Threw my purse on the floor...
    And kept on crying till I couldn't cry anymore...

    To be continued...

    continuation...

    and Storm called the East to the streets of NY and MD for her backups: Da Street So'ja, MADDRAPPER and dnommo and they climbed on the plane with :uzi: in their hands to settle the dismay that a playa tried to portray on one of the scribes... :D:

    :lol: :rolling: :lol: jes playin'

    this piece is full of thoughts that few tend to recognize when going through the experiences...that little conscience is a powerful tool...when we listen to it...

    excellence from the strom of greatness :D:

    Surprise!

    Don't we just love a surprise! Sometimes, I guess--I liked the minimal touch here, very well executed and a great story to boot--thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Thanks To All!

    I can tell that you liked it! Thanks so much...you're a doll. Back up fa sho! Ha ha ha ha ha just playing!
    8th wonder thanks it's always good to have another sistah's opinion...if you know what I mean... Afridancr gurl,you are such a good poetress that I am humbled once again. Thanks for the props...Amun-Ra,you always have truth to say...appreciate it very much! Thank you to all that read this!This isn't a true story but maybe can give you a better picture of some of the similiar situations that I've been in. And the let downs and the emotions and pain in this story are equivelent in measure to "past situations"
    Thanks so much again!
