    How did I get here
    ... and what am I doing
    My thoughts should be of her
    Yet instead they are of you
    She never talks
    ... never tells me what's going on
    Mood swings
    and
    periods of "need to be by myself" syndrome
    No love for poetry
    which is 70% of who I am
    The music I sing
    she doesn't have an ear for
    I thought she was the one
    Blinded by her beauty
    yet I never noticed the
    disfigurement of her soul
    But when I look at you
    I feel complete
    Whole
    I feel like a King
    Our hearts and souls connect
    with a melody
    of forever ...
    Love, help me find a way out
    of this relationship chamber

    I am with her, but I wish to sing to you ~



    How did I get here
    ... and what is it exactly that I am doing
    Cerebrating on you
    contemplating letting go of him
    Speculating retrospect
    and a reconsideration
    of deducting myself
    from his insententious equation
    He doesn't listen
    ... never supports my decisions
    meditates on "suppositions"
    He gives me the
    'third degree' of lone-ly
    cross-questioning
    my inquiries of
    where he be
    every time I watch him leave
    His moon no longer bathes
    in a bottle of my perfume
    But I thought he was the one
    and disregarded my own feelings
    -- tears dripping from the fingers of dawn
    He doesn't care
    Yet, when I am with you
    I feel so secure
    Safe
    I feel as though I am a Queen;
    Goddess of an illusive sun
    our hearts and souls intertwine
    covering the cracks of emptiness
    Your sun shadowboxes me
    sifting the numbness from the day
    Love, help me find a way out
    of this relationship chamber

    ... I am with him, but I wish to shine for you ~

    Rykah ~

    I agree wit cha' whole hearted-ly with your comment.... relationships & wishful thinking don't always fit quite well;
    feelings contained & then unleashed may be just about as
    venomous as any snake could ever hope to be...

    Thanks for the read sistah!

    Bishop ~

    I did want to say Thanks for the opportunity... I'm not big on "collabs" at all (it's not really my M.O. = mode of operation):lol: I guess that's just my 'bio-individual' speakin :lol: But, I did accept the challenge to see if I could link up & partner on a wonderful topic such as the ever-changing subject of relationships.... I'm satisfied!! :smokin:

    Thanks for allowin' me the opportunity to expand ~

    N2 :) :D
