    Why do men promise to call and know they never will?
    Why do these women sit by the phone depressed and
    making themselves ill!
    Why do men spend time with you and make promises
    they don't intend to keep...just to get you in the bed
    and do anything but sleep!
    Why don't they call?
    Alicia Key's wants to know...and she is in the big show!
    Said he was going to call and the phone never rang.
    I feel that hollow pit in my stomach like a real hard
    hunger pain.
    Said he was going to call, whe he left you at the door.
    You didn't ask for his lie, and you need no alibi.
    Why do men promise the moon and then deliver
    Moon Pies instead, with a single rose from the
    street vendor that has seen better days.
    Said you were going to call to make plans for our
    next date...I sit and wait and wait!
    I figure you are just busy and "Actually working late!"
    Why do men promise to call and never do.
    How would you feel if someone did this to you.
    Said he was going to call and then he never did
    I know now my true feelings I should have hid.
    Should I have let him hit it, even though it was
    early in the game.
    Why I haven't met his family or been to his place
    and I don't even know his middle name!
    Said he was going to call...but he must have lost
    my number...or maybe I was just a showpiece
    on his arm just for the summer.
    So now I figure he is taken and playing the players
    game...."How to tame a black woman!" I think
    you got it wrong.
    Said you were going to call, why did I believe that
    ****...I knew this was not going to fit, and it wasn't it!
    So you didn't call today and tommorrow has not come.
    I don't know what I will say to you except that I am
    done...
    No more waiting by the phone.
    Spending evenings all alone.
    Waiting for a ray of hope to come bursting through
    these dark clouds...I am praying for God to stengthen
    me and I am praying very loud.
    Tears roll time my face trying to erase, the "What if's"
    and the "What's wrong with me!" and "Why can't I
    get some love!"
    Said he was going to call, but you didn't call at all!
    Not yesterday and not today...Sorry bro but this
    sista doesn't do it that way!
    It's a deal breaker, a lie without cause...
    Feeling relieved it went no further...I stop and
    then I pause!
    Said he was going to call...but he never did!

    Thanks Rich!

    Thank you for always encouraging me and supporting me not only in my writing but as a friend. I cherish the day I found Destee and I shout for joy because of you and the wonderful people who make Destee the best Site on the WWW....with out a doubt , some of my poetry would still be collecting dust!
    Appreciate you taking the time...hope that others will, but it doesn't bother me like it used to. I get fulfilled knowing that I am sharpening my craft and getting myself ready for the "Big Show" getting published! Pray for me this year, much going on in my world...I will tell you about it in private...:kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :D

    see what happened is this
    uh you know I lost
    I mean naw, uh someone stole my cell phone
    and see uh I had your number programmed in it
    uh your number was 02, you know the first one
    uh cause you know 01 be for emergencies, but you was 02
    and uh see uh ok i admit I'm bad with memorizing numbers
    but uh see this why I had you number programmed 02
    that way I would always be connected to you
    cause you know that's important to me
    so I made you 02, but see uh
    they stole my phone
    and since you number was in the phone
    i couldn't call you cause you were in the phone
    uh and see
    what uh I started to naw you know what I was gonna do
    I was just gonna come ova
    but then I thought I can't come ova
    without calling first so uh
    i was trying to look you up in 411
    but uh, you know they say yo number not listed
    you should change that cause somebody might need to call you
    like me
    see uh
    and so when I couldn't call you
    I didn't know what to do
    so I started praying
    yeah I prayed that since I couldn't call you
    cause they stole my phone
    and yo number was 02 then
    I was praying that you would call me
    so I could explain why I didn't call you,
    but you see I got a new phone now
    and uh, but uh you know it looks like my other one
    but that's because you know I like that brand and it's easy to use
    so if you give me yo number
    I can uh put you back in 02.:D

    Not because yo alibi is solid or because I believe one word you said, but you must have put a lot of thought into coming up with the perfect explanation to keep me from kicking yo butt to the curb...So I'ma give you my number one mo time and if you loose this one then that is yo behind!:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :kiss:

    Missed ya!
    Blessings on Ya House!

    Thanks for reading fellow scribe!

    You know what I am talking about! It is a problem with both sexes and it doesn't matter if you are homsexual or heterosexual, it's something about this dating game that reallly chaps my hide...if ya gonna call, then call, if you know you not, then don't even say it! 4-sho!

    Blessings On Ya House!

    I agree with all of the above!
    "Not yesterday and not today...Sorry bro but this
    sista doesn't do it that way!
    It's a deal breaker, a lie without cause...
    Feeling relieved it went no further...I stop and
    then I pause! "
    I loved the end!
