    when u call, she answers without hesitance
    when u cry, her t-shirt is your tissue
    when you're hurtin, her presence is your medicine
    when you're in need, her patience is your virtue

    when you're hungry, her nature is your nutrition
    when you're empty, her compassion fills you complete
    when you have problems, she solves them with her intuition
    Just to make you feel stronger, she'll make herself weak

    But once you cross that line too many times
    by fishin for other fish in the sea
    Or run to the other yard becuz it looks greener
    to give your heart to another by makin a spare key
    Itll never be the same again... once you betray her trust
    Cuz u can mend all your broken promises... but a woman's heart only breaks once

    She'll climb the highest mountain as long as youre there for her fall
    swim the deepest sea as long as youre the life jacket if she drowns
    She'll walk across the country as long as youre @ the finish line with open arms
    Just to lift you up higher, she'll get under u and put herself down

    When you're hands are dirty, her dedication will rinse them clean
    When u lose faith, her body becomes your temple
    When you're ambitious, your goals become her dream
    And just to gain more power, you'll **** with her mental

    But once you cross that line too many times
    by fishin for other fish in the sea
    Or run to the other yard becuz it looks greener
    to give your heart to another by makin a spare key
    Itll never be the same again... once you betray her trust
    Cuz u can mend all your broken promises... but a woman's heart only breaks once

    Wow...Most of your words here were soft and smooth, but they carried a mighty blow. This is oh, so true, and so well put. Written on point.

    Truer words has yet to be spoken, my saying is:"Once you kill what's in me...I'm dead" ...to you.
    So I certainly understand this piece to the core...to the "raw" core.

    Sister this is so true...
    Your scribes have shifted...
    and seem to be evolving...
    delving into some deep, reflective
    places...
    that last line, gripped me
    I felt that one...
    because I've been there...
    Thanks for sharing this with us...

    Powerful Read!
