    Given the right moment I would love to replace
    Your cell phone with the tip of my tongue
    Caressing the inside of you thought process with my woman juice
    If I had the chance
    I would allow you to place you hands
    On scares that have not been touched in a while
    Place your head near my bloodstream
    Inhale
    I would let you hold my tears with the inside cup of balance
    And you would never become the rapist
    If I had the chance
    I would greet you with an
    Inch of humility
    3 oz of pride wrapped in side
    12 years of hoping
    For the moment to kiss
    Your melon shaped lower lip.
    If I have the courage
    I would run my fingers across the top or you brow
    Stroke your inner ear for wisdom
    Would sit at your feet watch for mere direction
    Like a pharaoh’s wife
    If given the chance
    I would listen to you sing sweet melodies about places
    I only dreamed of going about things you’ve seen in waves
    You would take the time to humble me without scaring my soul
    With laymen explanation of why the sun revolves around the moon
    We’ve traveled many paths together so your foot prints lay way deep in my soul
    If given the opportunity
    I would try to be your friend before
    We lay down to break ceremonial bread
    If given the chance I would give more from the place of truth
    Then the place of
    I am waiting in vain
    Skool Grrl crush-ed
    Replaced with right here and now
    If given the chance
    I would show you my soul.
