    He says He’s not pressuring me
    But he is
    So then I say
    Baby I’m not quite
    Not quite ready for that step
    We need to take it slow
    He insists he wants to make love to me
    And I think
    Why couldn’t he make love to my mind?
    Is that even possible
    Having sex with my intellectual capabilities
    In that area I got skills
    I can ride his mind to oblivion
    With my wisdom
    I’m sure he could reach his capitulation that way
    By getting to know
    Who’s really behind my Nubian skin
    Cause I’m not ready
    To have my…
    Stomach protruding
    Giving me stretch marks leading to my future
    I’m not ready to find out that
    You will leave me
    With nine months of carrying our weight
    With my now swollen feet
    And thinning hair
    My body chemistry messed up
    Because I gave birth to our baby girl
    With bags under my eyes
    From not just pushing her out
    But from waking up in the
    Middle of the night
    Singing:
    Hush little baby don’t say a word
    Mommas gonna buy you a mocking bird
    Notice I say Mama not Papa….
    Because Papa wasn’t here to wipe her tears away
    So that she will want to run into his arms each day
    With that big smile on her face
    No trust, me I tell him
    I’m not ready
    And never will be
    Because I Haven’t made love to your mind
    Therefore, I don’t know you
    I’m only doing this for my unborn child.

    Wow....eloquently yet directly put. Every time you lay with someone, there is a chance of becoming pregnant, so why take that chance with someone that may not truly love the inner you? This was on the money poet. Flow on.
