    there was a time when
    you were my obsession
    and the cause of my depression
    because you made such an impression
    in my flesh
    setting off my alarms
    you never meant me any harm
    though you were never good for me
    and i knew we would never be
    the "we" type of we
    it's so funny how i let go of that desire
    and there is no fire
    not even an ember
    since september
    when i realized
    the contract with what's between my thighs
    is not to be compromised
    i can't let you in
    'cause that would be a sin
    and i would get in big trouble
    that nine months big trouble
    because in the heat of pasison
    in the blink of an eye
    i wouldn't think and i
    just might forego protection
    and your erection
    woule be all natural
    and i'd be naturally
    wrong and it would be a long
    time before i could get out of the
    state of confusion
    what i thought could be real was an illusion
    and to be smart enough
    to be able to let you go
    and resist the temptation
    and your sweet invitation
    woooo
    there is a God

    Yes there is a God Diva.
    He gives us strength when we are weak
    all we must do is just be meek.
    Good piece Diva :wink:

    divadiva!

    When you speak of those things we oftentimes be torn 'between', I'm reminded of Brotha Paul, when he talks about the war going on in our 'members', and how we constantly look for ways to stoke up those dying embers...

    Preach Sista Pastahhh!
