    "Recidivism"


    dysfunctional behavior
    looking for favor from
    THE MAN
    ...ANY MAN...IN

    ANYWAY THAT SHE CAN,
    with...
    her own or someone else's man
    sex two, four, six times per
    week or day
    BY...ANY MEANS NECCESSARY SHE...
    brings them to peak...
    they...get weak
    in the knees
    Loving the way she teased and pleased

    RECIDIVISM...

    on again...off again
    repetitive behavior
    hoping to get love
    in return
    Only to find she'd
    been burned

    RECIDIVISM...

    the cycle continues...

    didn't love herself enough
    to know...she didn't have to "BLOW"
    T' SHOW...SHE
    had T' GOIN' ON

    didn't love herself enough to know
    if she was naive and open they'd
    *** her and go

    RECIDIVISM...

    feeding on negative criticism
    she...
    EATS...SLEEPS... DRINKS
    Eats...Drinks...Sleeps
    sleeps...eats...drinks and...drinks again
    DroWning in self pity
    self-destructing
    ....man wanting
    sex-loving
    .....man hunting
    self-neglecting
    ......dis-respecting SHE...she's
    CONFUSED, don't know why
    DESPERATE, can't comprehend how
    SEEKING RELATIONS NOW

    bruised and abused
    soul temple
    cracked dome soul
    dies slow
    spontaneous combustion through
    multiple vaginal penetrations
    Reaching peak of
    TOTAL SELF-DESTRUCTION

    RECIDIVISM...

    Will this saga continue into 2001?

    RECIDIVISM...TO RELAPSE; FALL BACK INTO A PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR

    this is indeed

    tyght! And a very important read for anyone (male or female) caught up in the vicious cycle of self-hate seeking anything that moves in order to mate.

    Well done, Poetess!

    :)

    WOW!

    That is so true...and that really sucks when sometimes you just don't care anymore and you slip away and become something you hate.

    True. You captured this canibalistic tendancy well- A lot of times the person on this path to self destruction is really looking for someone to love or someone to love them. It becomes relatively easy to judge this person as 'not loving self' but loving self is really only possible as one loves, or is loved. But even love has got to have rules of discipline- and this is where the downfall may be. One has to have rules of engagement based upon universal principle, or multiple penetrations & orgasims is all that will be had. The giver of universal principles is JAH, one need only feed upon HIS WORD with sincerity and these principles will become obvious and will manifest themselves through the power of HIS SPIRIT to aid the individual in navigating encounters with possibilities for love. IMO.
