    l had to confess to her....

    l use to play
    had madd motive
    and now at my shame
    l cheated twice
    maybe three times
    deceived girls and wrote sweet rhimes
    though the roses were not red
    and violets were not blue

    l mean l had to be open
    she made me feel this way
    being open is the best policy
    and l had to tell my boy
    that she is not the next lottery ticket
    that l can just play and gamble
    if anything
    l hope l win

    l am the first to admit
    that no
    l don't play anymore and promised myself
    that if she would give me the time or day
    l would never throw another rhime away
    b/c
    l am older
    wiser
    and ready to commit
    and if time is what it takes for this flame to first be lit...
    l'll sit on her
    and her and her b/c they never were
    what you are to me
    and if you are afraid and wont trust me
    l understand but l know that
    that was then
    and on writes my pen and one day love shall come

    :spinstar:There's always that 1, that can bring the Kingdom down...and it's funny how instinctively you know, once you've found.

    Really liked this piece can't wait for the encore!:spinstar:
