    u bring new meanin to life, well my life
    u have brought a new feelin to my emotions
    but babygirl listen to me when i say... i cant put u thru this
    cuz women have this influence
    on me and my actions
    ive tried to be committed... but it never works out as planned
    i only end up doin thangs that cause hurt... i know u dont understand
    but u know that i stay out n about
    doin things i wouldnt doubt
    u already know...
    just cuz u dont see it, doesnt mean it doesnt exist
    it just hardly shows...
    ur a beautiful person
    **** near perfect
    but the problem is... im not capable
    of stayin faithful...
    ur down to ride with me
    which is even more frightenin
    cuz ur down with whateva
    knowin all of the problems i can cause if we stay togetha
    i try to make excuses...
    knowin this only confuses
    us and this situation
    u see things in me, that people are blinded by
    ur determined to make me see the possibility in u and i
    i see it, i just know im not ready for the responsibility guided by
    god or maybe even fate
    im not ready to create
    a new life... cuz the life im livin has a lock on me
    and these people that want me
    pursue me, even tho they know somebody already got me
    u bring excitement to our conversations
    but i cant get over the excitement in these risky situations
    they keep callin my name
    its all apart of the game
    i wish i had the power that u seem to grasp
    cuz i know many people frequently ask
    for ur hand and u simply pass
    u notice my mistakes and accept them
    never bring up my wrong doings or present them
    u know about the people that call the house
    the people that wanna slide, crawl, hang out
    it doesnt bother u... well, maybe u just dont show it
    and that composure u have.. ****, i wished i owned it
    but its hard, when they show up to ur door
    askin for this, that, and more...
    they probably dont even care about my dreams
    and as sad as it seems...
    i dont think i care either
    most of the time i just wanna have my fun
    cuz in the moment i feel "why not, im young"
    but then when im chillin with u
    u ask if im willin to
    slow down... knowin im gonna say it
    but... never portray it
    whats even worse is... ur ex did what im doin
    hurtin u... promisin improvement
    u wanna get inside my heart... so im tellin u now
    its hard to see myself settling down...
    ur heart is as big as an ocean
    ur words, phrases work as a potion
    but i guess its not strong enuf to get me to slow some
    u ask me if i love u... i do... i swear i do...
    but it wont allow me to stop to actually show i care for u
    ive told u things that only exist in my mind and heart
    knowin i still wouldnt be able to take the time apart
    i know im selfish... i still dont understand why u stay true
    cuz i never put ur emotions into consideration... i want my cake n eat it to
    i appreciate ur mind, body, soul, and flavor
    but i just dont wanna front now and hurt u later
    ur openminded
    often reminded
    of heaven when i think of u
    i wish i knew how to act on the right thing to do
    but babygirl... i just dont know how to
    if u wanna wait... which i doubt u do
    then im sure i will conquer it, master it
    what ive got ourselves in... is a disaster isnt it?
    i know, i know... trust me i know...
    but **** baby... how do i overcome it?

    k8one......... nice poem.... i felt it......

    Baby..... I am glad that I bring new meaning to your life,
    and also.... I am glad that I heighten your emotions in the night.
    But realize..... no matter what..... I am here for you,
    still waiting for the day when you can stay true.
    My heart will always have a spot for you,
    and no doubt.......you will always be my boo.
    Thanks for being understanding and so **** real,
    you know most people would say '**** this deal.'
    One thing I just can't say...
    because I am still waiting for that one special day.
    My mind says move on, my heart says don't run...
    and you say 'Why not...... I am young....'
    and you ask how do you overcome it...
    and you often a flirtatious a bit...
    Remember.... no one can ever be like me,
    all the groupies will want to be.
    They will say things you like and yes.. they will be fine,
    remember.........I am your heart and your dyme piece.
    I will teach you that I am one...
    and baby..... I will give you our son.
    You say..... isn't it a disater what you got us in,
    Actually......no........b/c like i told u, I am here to the end.
