    Aight poet!! I stepped back up to it. Everyone has to read"Just Exhale", "Exhalin", and" Why you wanna hold your breath?" In order to grasp the understanding...aight....


    Aight baby boy, you have to step up to the plate
    If we even wanna think about considering us fate
    No one said you were perfect, people get played
    But you might do the same to me and leave after you get laid
    So far you're speakin the truth, no games no lies..
    But what happens in 6 months when you start makin alabi's?

    I ain't holdin in nothing........except..my heart

    Yes, It's been a while for me, hell I'm practically a virgin
    No more late night romps , no no..I can't take all the urgin
    But yet....
    I look at your juicy lips, I peek at those strong thighs
    I can imagine what sex would be like, you would take it in stride
    But I'm a Libra , I'm realistic and I just can't throw my heart away....
    There are Certain memories I can't shake that still me haunt today

    I'm breathing freely.........but I'm getting choked up......

    You don't know the stuff I've been put thru in my past
    Different drama, a baby mama, and the **** broke the fan at last
    Iam on bad terms with the word love and being in it
    Love acted like a fool and left me with nothing
    I look into your eyes and I just know your not the same
    But I push you away and then start to blame...

    Tears keep fallin and breathing easy just gets hard.........

    They say that love is a beautiful thing and it's the light
    Well, f*** love left me crying for a month every night!
    If I could , I'd give love another chance
    Cuz you ain't that *****, you're the face of romance
    You don't know how much I care for you, you just don't understand
    I would be your Juilet, you would be my man

    I' m trying to stop holding my breath......................

    Aight I wanna make on thing clear before we go too far
    I'm not after sex boo, I just want you for who you are
    One day , sure we'll bust all the mattresses down in my house
    But I'm not looking for a qiucky, I'm lookin for a spouse
    Someone to share my heart with, someone who will fill me whole
    Someone who will make love to my body AND soul

    Breathing deep yet still holding back.........

    I don't mean to doubt you, I want to give all that I can give
    But you have to be passionate, cunning and kinda sensitive
    I want you to prove it, that's what I'm trying to see..
    If you just want my sex, or do you really want me?
    If bad days come then we'll have to deal
    I will be your Strength, and you'll be my GoodWill
    So in order to trust you, I have to look deep into my heart...
    I'm trying to do that....trying to do my part..............

    Breathing deepp................and now..............

    I'm letting it all go...........

    (whoosh)
