    Tired of bein alone
    Loneliness, the disease
    that makes cancer seem easy to beat
    it seems im meetin different women to repeat
    the same process
    and to be honest
    i just want someone I can talk to
    Someone I can just hold
    A place to run to when I fold
    Because it happens often
    But I find myself foldin in both areas
    It might be me..
    I have enough offers to satisfy my sexual hunger
    But if I happen to fall under
    someone's spell I want it to be becuz of their heart and mind
    Not becuz they have pretty eyes, a fat @ss, and a nasty grind
    Sometimes
    I call a girl to replace the silence
    Becuz Im just looking for conversation
    Becuz everyone knows communication
    Is the key for every relationship
    Maybe Im too picky or maybe Im not patient
    But a stud's gotta have standards
    Maybe I've got this all backwards
    So Im lookin forward to the future
    But I cant see whats ahead of me
    It seems like everyone's with someone instead of me
    i'm tired of hearin the same sayings with the same dealings
    From girls that all seem to know eachother cuz they all hold the same feelings
    There's gotta be a handbook I dont know about
    That directs these fems to the same route
    I just want someone I can meet halfway
    I dont chase her, she doesnt have to chase me
    Becuz she makes me
    feel like Im flyin when Im clearly on the ground
    Physically planted, but mentally heavenbound
    But its hard findin love when pretendin is much easier
    Becuz I'm beginnin to think thats all it ever was
    Thats why I protect my heart by defendin my trust
    becuz Bresha broke something that can only break once
    And Tammie was a lost cause I took a chance on
    Hopin we'd enhance on
    buildin and growing
    knowing
    I could never make a dollar out of 10 cents
    Becuz thats all she ever was, a dime
    that lacked the value of the mind
    I was blind
    But even tho Im pickin up my pieces of my heart
    I still miss havin someone close
    I guess everything u regret is also what u cherish the most
    But I'll never understand how a person can break something so strong
    Have everything go so right and end it by doin wrong
    Or why I always chase the girls in track shoes
    its like fast food
    take their meal and run
    Gettin A's, but I feel so dumb
    i'd be better off if i could just be reassured
    I just wish I could find the cure
    For my nights.

    This scribe is deeply felt. Who doesn't understand, at one point, what you're going through? Keep your head up, Queen.
