    a daydream within a dream of
    a fairytale…I look
    over and over
    feeling that dream
    stepping right out that book
    to a happy ending….but
    reality hits and shakes
    and wakes me up….
    The fancy cars
    the big bank account
    And them high price clothes
    All for what.. the love wasn’t there
    Just the lust
    As you held me down…..
    not letting me breath
    Or escape the trap you
    planted to get me to stay
    taken my self esteem
    doggin and putting me down
    lack of support….
    but doing your thang
    Not letting me grow but
    now I am exploring
    Finding me and feelin
    the love never came with you
    see I step out the book you made
    had me in a glass
    house pretending I was
    when I wasn’t….
    I have a flow of my own
    As I grow on my own…..
    Things I did was silly indeed
    Settle for less b/c I didn’t
    know any better
    But if I knew what
    I know now
    I would of never step
    into your dream
    Of what I was to be
    See I am learning me……
    I am the Queen you had
    but didn’t know
    I am the Woman you
    thought you made
    But I broke her and shown
    you something stronger…
    fought your battles
    covered your lies
    for you to walk over my love
    and disrespect my true being
    as being me..and as I grow
    realizing you didn’t know
    me after all…

    excuse????
    what?????
    you didnt know
    i wrote poetry
    should of ask
    what i was doing all them nights
    i wouldn't sleep with you....
    peace and love to you
    but its time i receive the love
    that is being giving
    by a real man....bye.....

    a blkangel thang...... :angel1:

    Doesn't sound like he really tried to know, emotively written.

    mzblkangel,
    congratulations on this poem on the bold steps to emancipation into the community of self and unlimitted growth that is appreciated by all others who are also actualized or actualizing.......It's bad that weak people try to imprison others in their waknesses but it is inevitable that freedom comes and nature takes it course........i enjoyed this writing.

    Peace and Blessings
