    Played again seems I just can't win
    f****** around with you, My King
    Afreekan Men

    Razor Sharp S*** cut my heart
    Making M.E. believe you were true from the start

    Came to M.E. all needy and S***, seeking to tap into my gifts
    Of Giving, Nurturing, Caring

    You were ole so bold and daring
    Slinging dat S***
    Then I found out, you didn't even know to ride this t**

    A B*&^h in the bed, now I'm seeing Red
    Cause I wanna just
    Bust ya a&& upside da head

    After all I did, After all I gave
    Your pimp a&& need to end up in a early grave

    Turned my heart out, then kicked it all about
    And got the nerve to flip it
    Telling M.E, it's you who ought to pout

    Cause the white man hit you the hardest
    and I wasn't really the smartest
    Saying he twisted my mind
    And I turned on you at the drop of a dime


    That what you really needed
    Was a chance toooo

    Simply be IT...

    in my life

    Now

    And in the great hereafter is where my reward would be found

    So I opened my door
    Knowing all the while that at your core
    You would treat me like some whore
    leave my crying on the floor
    then walk right out the door
    with your belly full
    Your sense of self restrored
    Got your head on straight
    Chalkin my loss up to fate

    Dang, I woke up to late
    Now I'm left with all this hate....

    of Myself
    Thinking it was really M.E.
    who was born in sin

    and...

    Who deserved to get

    Played Again:em18:

    We don't deserve to get played, but when we do, we wonder, what did we do to deserve this. And the pain, it's like a sledge hammer. When we do get past the hurt, hopefully we'll learn something from the experience, and trust enough to try again. You laid this out, sis.

    Thank you Both for your replies!

    Sis Watz...I am always impressed with your ability to see the heart in every poem you reply to and those you pen. Thank you again for teaching M.E. what it means to Be a "Poetess" :bowdown:

    Sis asimplepoet...girl, these days I'm straight thinking and accepting what appears to be my "fate". If it happens, Great, if Not....Oh Well the Creator had something else for M.E. in my last days. I'ma just try and DO like my mother suggested some time ago when one comes along all hurt and broke down..."Take him to his mommy"!

    listen poet don't hate on YOURSELF

    errybody needs love

    sometimes we look for it in all the wrong places

    what goes around comes around those people will get theirs

    and no you didn't and don't deserve to get played again

    remember you of all people know

    we are dealing with a psychotic mindset

    peace

    good to see you

    Your turn to burn King

    When I thought about the times you played me to the max,
    how all the things you did and said was merely just a act.

    How you only came around to reap the fruits of my sweet labor,
    funny how I was the last to know, I wasn't the right flavor.

    See, variety is the spice of life and I WILL appeal to another,
    you had the best of my sweet love, but now you blew it brother.

    The only thing left that's heading your way, is a boomerang full speed,
    I hate to say ..."I told you so", but it's exactly what you need!!​

    Thanks DSS for checking the poem and for sharing your thoughts. I don't know that one "looks for love in wrong places". For M.E., I be just "looking" at those closet to my heart....Afreekan Men in the Margins ...dat's where I'm at.

    QueenT...nice addition!:grouphug: Thank you for the inspiration you give to M.E.

    :hearts2:

    Very nice flow.

    If one must play again in the same swimming hole.
    Keep your head up so you won't drown in the pool.
    Deception couldn't last three months.
    Wouldn't last if you played on your hunch.
    Lay out expectations, and he should be able to deliver.
    They don't have to be hard, but if he is fake see him shiver.
    Actually make him wait, for we know good things are worth the wait.
    If he looses his patience. Then you show him the gate.:getout:

    Play me once.. shame on you. Play me twice..?

    It isn't' cool at all when a man, wastes the heart of someone who cares about him. It is hard enough to get on one's feet, people know,clock and watch each other.

    People play in on a weakness, a common human flaw. Usually found in the heart, and mind.

    We all desire to love and be loved. Go slower.. keep your eyes open and trust you. Stay truetothecause.
