    Impossible for you to…
    Develop a
    New approach to
    Reach Me
    Hold Me
    Love Me
    Tenderly…

    Your angle, 90 degrees
    BUT
    360 degrees is
    What you need to enter
    "My Sphere"

    Say you…
    Like, Want
    Care for Me
    Losing our baby
    BUT…
    Can't emotionally
    Support me?

    WHY allow you
    to…
    Enter into
    My Sphere, my…
    Fourth dimension
    WHEN…
    You're not even
    Parallel to
    My Universe?
    My WOMB to which you…
    Aren't in tune
    Revolving round me like…
    The earth and moon

    Create a life that's…
    Trapped in a tomb
    Of my Womb~anhood
    Create a life and…
    Still causing me
    Pain and strife?

    Why touch me and cry when…
    You know it's all a lie
    Drinkin' wine, celebratin'
    That this unwanted child is dying,
    Not worryin' bout' a ting cause
    Back to Jamaica you'll be flyin'!!

    Strong black woman
    Know that I AM,
    I will survive without you
    Have no doubt that I can

    The hand of God is rested upon me
    And this never to be born baby

    Spiritual woman that I am…
    I pray PEACE and FORGIVENESS for you
    DAILY.

    Nice Piece

    That was nice. Really nice. And deep. I am really digging this piece. The words of woman. I sometimes wonder what do some men think.

    Your flow always touches me

    You are truly a gifted soul

    Just a likkle reminder of what was...

    The guy I'm referring to in this piece is Spencer. His sister Sophia mentioned on Tuesday that he's back for the entire summer. He's been here since March.

    I decided to repost this to remind myself of the experience I had with him. So, if and when I run into him (it's inevitible) I will handle the situation with care. I don't want to be hostile towards him. It's been 7 months this month.

    Whew guys....almost 7 months clean of "extracurricular" activities!! with the exception of 1 slip up!!!:p
