    He looks at me careful not to show face,
    as he undresses me with his eyes.
    You lost one.
    He holds my face as he kisses my lips,
    the reflection of happiness in my eyes...
    as he catches a glimpse of him in my iris he shys away..
    You lost one.
    He looks at me like chineese porcelean;
    beautiful and delicate.
    You lost one.
    Im strong like plexiglass;
    and Ill bend; fend; and mend anything for your @ss.
    He puts me on a shelf; though high and above the rest.
    If i wanted to be on display, a sign of his achievements..
    along with an array of others..
    Then we'd be "just friends"..
    but the kind that awake in the same bed together.
    You lost one.
    But you have me encased...
    The air between,
    two cm glass panes.. leaves me sick.
    The idea of sharing my space drives me insane.
    You lost one.
    See.. I have pride in myself.
    More than money contributes to my wealth...
    More than doctors to my good health.
    More than Crest to my smile..
    If you could walk a mile in my Minolo's.. or 2 steps in my bo'bos.. youd know.
    Why i had to leave you.
    Why I had to go.
    You were playing checkers;
    and Im playing chess.
    I must confess; life is a game.
    Im playing to win.
    But the points dont matter until the end.
    You lost one.
    Game point; and I win.​

    I didn't mean no disrespect
    you know I love holdin' you close to me
    I didn't voice it many times
    but when we're together my thought is "now this is how it's supposed to be"
    the day i first met you I was blinded by your beauty
    my friend had to tap me and say "yo, keep your focus G"
    no words came out my mouth
    as I spoke to you thru my eyes
    and you responded in like manner
    so I knew right then you were wise
    so I decided to predict the future
    and asked if you would flow with me
    anytime you miss me, or I'm not around
    just look up at the night sky and view some of my poetry
    right then you held me tighter
    on the dance floor as we pulled an all nighter
    didn't mean to step on your minolos
    but the dance floor was packed
    and we were slow dancin' to a hip hop tune
    and some herb bumped me right in the back
    I hope you're remanicin' with me
    or is last night, the last time you ever gonna kiss me
    will I ever feel your nails
    travelin' down my six pack again
    will I ever be able to wash your feet in Frankensence and Myrh
    b4 your feet massage my back again
    you don't want me leavin rose petals from the door to the bed
    havin' me feelin' like the mack again
    treatin' you like the queen you are because I love it when you say
    the true God & Goddess are back again
    I wasn't lookin' at you like you were porcelain
    I was just stunned by your wisdom
    I wasn't tryin to put you on display, my friend was havin' women trouble
    & you were the first positive reinforcement I could think to give 'em
    do you think I wanna ever wake up
    without you layin' next to me
    a lamb laying on a Lions chest
    now that's a nice recipe
    I know I spend some time out in the jungle
    but at night, you get the best of me
    I never meant for what I spent
    for you to ever think no less of me
    if the universe was a menu
    I'd place an order for you to be next to me
    but right now, are we playin' chess or checkers
    I'm not sure, but I think you're still testin' me...........

    poet you have this down packed

    You were playing checkers;
    and Im playing chess.
    I must confess; life is a game.
    Im playing to win.

    i loved this part

    you have untapped strength you probably don't even know you have

    don't be so hard on yourself

    once i stopped doing that the rest is gravy

    this piece was power

    YOUR POWER

    good work poet

    peace
