    this is kind of prosy

    gotta let me know what you want
    how this game go
    got me wondering 'bout the rules
    so tell me
    how many years was I s'posed
    to waite while you bounced
    back and forth between me and your man
    I can still see that expression on your face
    when I told you I was bound to you for life
    and why I was willing to live in my car
    for 7 mos or in a hole in the wall motel room
    when I could afford to
    just how many years was I s'posed to watch
    you gloat
    how many days week months and years
    was I s'posed to keep beggin you back
    while you took every opportunity to put me down
    how many times was I s'posed to watch you
    prove to me how much you hated me
    and when you got pregnant
    while I was broke and strugglin'
    I came to visit you with all my worldly
    belongings in my car
    I brought you a card and tokens of my devotion
    you clowned me and called it stupid ****
    exactly what impression was you tryin' to give me
    while I'm knowin' each day you go back with my seed
    to sleep beside your man
    and over the course of two plus years how
    long was I s'posed to just smile and say "that's ok"
    when in every freakin' conversation you are calling
    me by his name
    and at the end of all this you told me you didn't
    want to talk to me anymore
    when I went from homeless to an apt. to a three
    bedroom house(though I didn't own it)
    when I did this all for you
    you said you wanted to work it out with your man
    though you didn't love him
    I'm sayin'
    exactly what was my response s'posed to be
    so I said God bless you and I wish you well
    guess that makes me an evil bassted huh
    guess that's what you want

    no joy here,
    all is pain.
    no sunshine here,
    nothing but rain.
    leave behind,
    what you wish to have.
    you've given her time,
    and that's all she had.
    sooner or later,
    she'll understand.
    that you were the one,
    that should have been her man............(love it-add me)

    man
    i thought my stories
    were gory
    and harder than a rock quarry
    thine eyes have seen the light
    thru poetry
    .......................
    i hope yours has too...
    i feel ya brah...peace
