    I know why Eve
    just couldn’t refuse,
    I know why Adam
    didn’t wanna lose
    the flesh of his flesh
    bone of his bone
    the WOman God fashioned
    for his own;
    why they suffered banishment
    why it was so hard to repent
    from a love that was so
    heaven sent
    ~
    believe me
    I know why…

    ~
    and I know why the wife of Lot
    HAD to look back and, thus
    got caught

    UP

    in the thangs she could not leave
    jus’ CAUGHT,
    but never would retrieve

    oh, TRUSS me,
    I know why
    ~
    I know why Jacob dearly paid
    for all the past mistakes he made
    worked 7 mo’ years just to get laid
    by the lady of his life
    (younger sista of his 1st wife)

    NO DOUBT, y’all
    I know why

    ~
    I know why David killed a man
    & took his wife, Bathsheba,
    AND
    withstood the wrath of God’s
    strong Hand,

    HAVE MER~SAY!,
    I know why!

    ~

    I know why 2 hearts beat so strong!
    I know why true love lasts so long!
    I know why Solomon wrote his song!

    Oh, YES, Lawd,
    I KNOW why!!!

    Gurrrl,

    This is yet another one of dem angle thingys, I was talking with you about two weeks ago.

    Lust is a great entangler when covered under the guise of love.
    Oh the things they can both (love - lust) drive one to do.

    Enjoyed the read sister girl.
