    Let me ask you something
    If love is what I do…
    Why does it matter to you?
    Is it in any way…
    throwing shade on
    your views… or
    stopping the flow of
    ink from your “wanna-be
    perfect-ly poetic” pen?
    Okay then!!
    So what’s it to you…
    If love is ALL I do?
    Is it causing you to lose
    sleep… or the respect
    of the peeps who think
    you’re “sooooo deep”?
    Is my “thing” intruding
    on yours… or is it
    causing you to final-ly
    see how love is supposed
    to be… & you’re
    discovering it’s the
    total opposite of the
    trifling **** you’re
    managing to get from
    those who profess to
    care about you?
    Hmmm…
    So!… So what if love is
    what I do?!!
    Is there something
    wrong with being known
    as a “Love Poet”??
    Cause if there is…
    I didn’t know it! (LOL)
    So what?!…categorize
    Me as LovePersonified
    on any day… at any time!
    But instead—
    You make it sound like
    a crime & or worse yet…
    a disease of the mind!
    You make it sound like
    I’m inept & could never
    write with any depth…
    when in actuality love is
    an emotion deepa than
    oceans!
    & you can try… but you
    can’t honest-ly deny that
    I… take you there!
    Sometimes the glare from
    SunShyne is so bryght…
    I find myself wearing
    shades when I write…
    So what if love is what I
    do??!! Is it really bothering
    you? (if it is…)
    Then you know what to do!
    Walk on by… ‘cause I
    wouldn’t want your flow
    to be affected by the love
    permeating the page!
    Walk on by… & I promise
    I won’t cry… won’t even
    ask your *** why you’re
    not reading me!
    I’ll just chalk it up to…
    stupidity & compose a piece
    that speaks of how I love you…
    regardless of your ignorance.
    (now that's love!)

    you have flowed what my pen could not express, dear friend. i have come across a poet here in my town, who has totally put my love poetry down and has caused me to go back to dig deeper into the flow of my pen. so, i am really feeling you on this piece, sweet sunshyne. it's funny how cocky some people can be and how they can be so against some types of poetry, but they look for you to be very proud of what ever type of poetry that they are in to...if that makes any sense. but anyway, you must have been sitting around vibin' on my thoughts with this one, ma sista'. thank you for this piece. always remember that i think your love poetry is the best, sweet dear friend. because, that is what we do!

    where da haters at?!?!?!? :uzi: :flame:

    if i find out who they be?!?!?!?! :flamet: :hot:

    shine yo' rays poet for the love you bring is for all to see. if someone feels threatened by your gift then that's their insecurities. i've gained and lost many of close people over the words i write and too many have made their motives clear...

    oh yeah...watch out for the one's that say, "i want the one who wrote this poem" for they truly cannot handle the person behind the pen...you too much for them...

    resting in the meadow under your rays :cool:
