    No choice
    I chose to silence my voice
    Chose to sit around and look
    And close the “this is us” book
    Now I’m moping and creeping
    Wondering with whom you’re sleeping
    Do you stroke her cheek and kiss her thighs?
    When you screw her, do you look in her eyes?
    Like you once did to me
    So good I can’t set my heart free
    I hate to think of our past
    How your attraction to me did not last
    I have no choice but to look on
    I will not sing no “Missing You” songs
    I made all these silly sacrifices
    I knew I shouldn’t have messed with a Pieces
    In the beginning, I had my own choice
    I mean something to you, I had my voice
    But my voice was drowned out by my passion
    Consequences came and lightening started flashing
    My body had to go though withdrawal
    But [email protected], my mind never missed you at all…

    So now I‘m alone again and finding my voice
    Hoping that from now on…I‘ll make the right choice.

    oh SwtT, I love this. I hear the voices of wisdom and experience creeping into your voice, and it fills my heart with happiness. I've missed reading your stuff, baby girl.

    and yet this is a choice although it seems it's not
    you've chosen to hold your head up high...
    learn from experience, knowing exactly who you are
    and that the touch of an endeared person can
    never define who you are...

    very emotive!
