    I’ve known you forever, but just really met you.
    Never once did it cross my mind that I’d sweat you.
    My mind reflects sometimes on when I’d see you,
    with your girl.
    No big deal,
    I had my man.
    But **** done changed and now you’re in my head.
    Can’t figure out why when I try to let it go,
    I seem to lose control of the situation.
    This ain’t me, I don’t need the drama.
    I’m used to sending ****** crying to their mama.
    But hey, you got ME crying,
    and now I’m slowly dying.
    Dying cause I let you change me, rearrange me,
    Who gave you permission –
    certainly not me! (Okay maybe it was)
    I polished your diamond, had it shining,
    now your attitude needs refining.
    A little appreciation would be nice, but if you did it, you’d be lying.
    How dumb could I be?
    Maybe lust has got me crazed, dazed, and confused.
    Don’t know what to do.
    I should stop ****ing you.
    Should – would, but can’t -
    so I ain’t.
    ****!
    There I go,
    Stroking your fat *** ego.
    Like you’re the ****.
    I need to quit.
    It’s like drugs and I’m withdrawing.
    I’m addicted –
    My decisions and morals conflicted.
    I sold out to the bullcrap you fed –
    been misled,
    to think I could be the lady on your arm,
    not just the freak in your bed.
    But like R. Kelly said, if I could turn back the hands of time,
    You STILL wouldn’t be mine –
    And that’s f---- up.

    I used to think

    that it made a difference if you made an "informed", "intelligent" conscious decision to do your dirty do; as opposed to being misled, smooth-talked into some madness....

    But it doesn't matter how smart and sophisticated we think we are....being "caught up" is an equal opportunity destroyer....

    thank you for this....

    I agree with Kemetstry, we bruthas go threw this...Let's face it we've all been whipped one time or another.....got us thinking about thangs in the most inconvenient places, at work, at home, in the grocery store, in the bathroom, at church, when you are on a date with someone else........Yeah I been there!! WOOO WEEEEE!!! and wouldn't mind going there again!!!
