    ALICIA KEYS SAID IT BEST, WHEN SHE SAID I WON'T TELL YOUR SECRETS, YOUR SECRETS ARE SAFE WITH ME

    DEAR OTHER WOMAN,
    YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND, THAT YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS TO A MARRIED MAN

    I KNOW THAT IN YOUR MIND YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE A BETTER WOMAN THAN I
    BECAUSE YOU'RE SLEEPING WITH HIM LISTENING TO ALL THE NECESSARY LIES

    BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU I, AM, NOT MAD AT YOU
    I, AM, JUST TRYING TO ASSURE YOU THAT YOU'RE BEING MY HUSBAND'S FOOL

    HE GIVE YOU STOLEN HOURS AND YOU THINK HE'S GIVING YOU HIS BEST
    SO THEN YOU GIVE HIM YOUR ALL, WHILE YOU'RE REALLY SETTLING FOR LESS

    LET ME ASSURE YOU, THAT YOU CAN'T TAKE WHAT YOU NEVER HAD, NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY
    A FOUNDATION BUILD ON LIES, WILL CRUMBLE AT YOUR FEET, WHEN THE TRUTH CAN NO LONGER HIDE

    SO WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE KEEPING HIS SECRETS SAFE FROM ME
    REMEMBER I, AM, THE TRUTH TO HIS SECRETS AND THE REALITY TO HIS FANTASIES

    Tell it like it is. It's good to read peaces like this because you have to tell others how it truly is. They may not listen...but you did your part...you told them.

    :thanks: for telling it how it truly is.

    I must say after all these years of watching my aunt cheat on her husband with other married men this is so true. I have never seen or heard some one break this down so simplisticly and mature. There is no anger or unnecessary name calling just straight raw reality. I loved this . Keep doing ya thang. We need more sista's with this mind frame. May be HIV/AIDS won't be spreading so rapidly.

    Much love and respect
    Poetic Sista

    THANKS FOR THE LOVE. I REALLY DIDN'T EXPECT ANY REPLIES, BEING THIS IS A TABOO SUBJECT. MOST PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT IT.
