    The Heart Says I Love You But the Mind Says Run


    I sit upon the windows with my head in my hands.
    Oh there have been times when I just wanted to let go.
    The lies and deceitfulness just keeps me in modes.
    When I have pleaded and begged boo why do you treat me so wrong.
    I keep the thoughts of the beginnings and day dream of what it was like.
    When you made love to me I thought our love was tight.
    You cheated in the night as a thief that notches his belt of his accomplishments to man kind. I gave all to you and you responded as Dr. Jackal and Hide you change over night.


    You preach the words of unity and close the doors on honesty, there are many times I just wanted to let go. Mama said one day girl this man is going give you pain.
    I turn my back on my mother and all of my friends. Loyalty that I pledged even though I know I was wrong. Disobediences slap me in the face, before I knew it I was crying again in the dark.

    Holding on to dear life, hoping for a dream that was not in sight.
    Crying the blues to friends and even those who did not no my situations in life.
    Crying for a savior for love that had no loyalty, to self and the one he said he loved.

    Curse by thy own heart, and the devil rejoice as his son stills my heart.
    Give me strength day lord against my self, the devils son has stolen my heart.

    My sister there is nothing greater than the spirit, to love self is to be honored as the queen you are. Self shall never humble under destruction, at times love is blind. But keep in mind the devil comes in all flavors, we battle with flesh and principality.
    Love dose not hurt. The greater the spirit the stronger the will not to go under. May your strength bring you to the light, and sister hood shall be the spirit of your rejoyce. Let not man are universe take you under.

    If you play with a dog you will get flees.
