    the air is heavy
    with the weight of midnight
    and a texture so thicke
    it clouds my thoughts
    and my sight

    the smell of dense fog
    reminds me of love jones
    but i aint darius
    and she aint nia long

    this aint the movies
    with guaranteed happy endings
    this is the reality
    of mixing lovers and feelings

    we argue in circles
    deep into the night
    forgiveness can't be southpaw
    when we both swear we're right
    so resolution gets left
    as we continue to fight

    sorry remains silent
    and never gets mentioned
    we fall asleep
    to the lullaby of
    cold shoulders
    regret
    and tension

    i'd love to hate her
    especially now
    as i dream with my eyes open
    and watch the sun come out

    but try as I may
    the effort is in vain
    she's the best enemy i've ever had
    and i love her for the pain

    i admire her insecurities
    and how she's imperfect
    so i’m going to work harder at being vulnerable
    cause this love is worth it

    plus the smell of breakfast dancing
    as she cooks to our favorite tune
    nourishes my soul
    and puts me in a better mood

    this thing will stay on track
    though it may not be a straight line
    midnight can be distracting
    but
    it doesn't take a whole day
    to recognize sunshine

    So, so beautiful, this wonderfully, sweet soulful song. Even with the pain....
    it sings to me. Very, very nice Nittygrit.
