    how many women think like me
    i used to think I was from
    some
    unique breed
    a hybrid
    sexy little man thinking
    woman thing
    whose specialty is being me
    now I wanna find out
    how many other ladies
    got clout
    with men
    how many other women
    can be his best friend
    hush him
    shush him
    take him in
    when the world won't even cut him a thin
    slice of pie
    when he looks you in the eye
    and says baby if only I
    could fly
    I would take you with me on my natural high
    when he kisses you on the inner thigh
    and says baby why
    don't you let me plant a seed
    in there
    how many of you can return his stare
    and be still
    and silent
    can you look him in the eye
    from 10 feet away
    can you finish his thoughts
    and make his pain go away
    can you do it without falling in love
    and roll with the fellas
    without being a glove
    is his clique
    yo clique
    but you ain't they b!*@#
    is what he tells his brotha
    the same **** he let's you know
    does he hip you 2 game
    and dare a nig**
    to call you a h*
    or talk greasy about yo name
    does he program your address
    into his navigational system
    and are you a first name only entry
    in the cell phone he keeps with him
    have you learned by now
    not to miss him
    even after two weeks go by
    and you're alone
    do you trust your situation enough
    to be sure he's not gone
    have you ever accidentally left something at his house
    and realized much later that he didn't even trip out
    how far would he go for you
    would he treat a b!*@#
    like a snitch
    if she got hyper
    when you called
    no matter what
    would he catch your fall
    these are the signs
    this is how sublime
    life would be
    if you thought like me
    if you believed
    that a man is significantly
    irreplaceably
    needed
    even if they are sometimes
    heavily weeded
    and crazy afraid
    or working 2 hard
    and dying to get laid
    you gotta really
    be down for whatever
    comes about
    event if it means
    you might break a nail
    or sweat your hair out

    that's cool
    but i'm wondering
    the time it takes
    to get to that stage
    upon first meeting
    who has that time
    hmmmmm, got me thinking?

    YES INDEED. This was intense to say the least. At first reminded me of myself because I was that tomboy that had those relationships with my male friends....but then you took it to another level. A level I've never managed to get to

    I like dis poem i know wat you mean,
    Have yo man eva lied to get wats in between?
    Have you eva left yo pad (sorry) to mark yo territory?
    Have you eva heard yo man whispering and started to worry?
    Has he called you anotha name even in the beginning?
    Have you eva not treated him like a man but as a winning?
    Have you met his mama, his crew, his kids?
    Do you even know where yo "man" live?
    If some of these questions confuse you somethins defiently wrong,
    becuz even if you in a relationship itz not that strong!!

    love yo poem nicole you always amaze me wit yo work keep keepin it real!! ;)---------serenti

    haha - yeah i thought i was alone too
    Figured i was the only one who wasn't a b*tch or a boo
    I got my homegurls and my nugero ties (nug-row)
    And them nugeros undastand
    No i ain't the one to get steady streams of them in my thighs
    I holds you down, and you keep me high
    on my pedestol
    Them my rules, but yeah
    an occasional kiss on my lips ain't too much...*smile*
