    At one point in time what I believed in and held to be so true seem to be slipping away
    In the blink of an eye the love I thought Id regained instantly appeared to go astray

    Stimulating chats about a love like new.....
    What would we, should we, and the things we'll do

    Led to the interesting topic of a women needing to fulfill the family needs
    Asked me
    " What if she looked outside the nest....Ya No, for some money
    needs!
    " Then she stated "Baby Im just thinking of milking a brotha just to pay the bills!"
    "It was only a thought ya know, Sometimes people have to do things against there will.."
    Now I heard that crack kills, but never new words could just about seil the deal
    WHAMMM......Slap in the face............Insult
    Maybe she overlooked me breaking my back, and the love in which I brought.....
    Im thinking to myself, maybe my lady hasnt realized Im for real
    When she talks about things she doesnt have, her pain I also feel
    So instead of me being a stubborn brotha, saying screw her and turning up my nose
    Im thinking Ill give her my patience, let her put the weight on my back, Ill walk the bumpy road
    Simply for her to understand looking outside of the circle never has to be an option..................
    If I have to work in bodage like the slave before me
    Chains & Locks would get to be comforting, or me die trying to fulfill your needs
    So if its money you need, dont fret some overtime can be arranged
    Even if its simply relaxing, I got the wine & back rub, ready to do the d@#^ thang
    Lets rid ourselves of the bad vibes we might be feeling
    And if nothing else comes out of this confession, just know IM WILLING!

    Willing to do whatever to make it work, those are some strong words indeed. Much meaning behind this, well put.
