    ...ramblings from the hope chest....


    she
    knows i've taken
    up residence
    i'm here at HER
    invitation

    but i'm aware of the tenuous
    nature of my delicate
    situation

    she's good
    at shutting out
    the light
    i be shining down
    from my
    head quarters

    she’s a master
    at doing deeds in the
    dark and disregarding
    conventional borders....

    and if i make too
    much noise
    she comes
    climbing the stairs..
    i mean REAL fast
    cussing and sputtering,
    threatening and muttering
    like she go’n kick my.....


    but i still tell the truth
    don’t care if it keeps
    us up at night
    we just ain't
    getting no sleep
    as long as things
    ain't right

    up here among cobwebs
    and all the stuff she still
    clings to...
    i'm the keeper of
    her secrets
    and the reminder
    of things she
    needs to do

    half the time she's
    angry with me
    but,
    i'm the
    one who cares the most

    there be times she
    calls me out
    wondering why i
    been so “ghost”

    but i stays in my space
    up here, sending the vibes
    and hints
    dropping knowledge
    on the sista through
    the rusted pipes and vents

    she’s smart, but i am smarter
    cuz i be quiet as a mouse
    even she don’t suspect
    that the woman in the attic
    runs the lady of the house
    ....
