    Would you allow me to unfold?
    Before you say yes to me
    I want you to know
    What the eyes can’t see

    I’ll unwrap the wonder
    Keep you smiling for life
    Making you my joy
    Sometimes I can’t get to the core
    I know I have plenty to offer

    Sometimes I look at things around me and consider myself complex
    Then I say for get that
    I am simple in fact
    I just need to unfold
    Level upon level

    Having someone who can appreciate the complexity is all I need
    Wonders and treasure I can’t explain is at hand

    Help me unfold
    Take your sweet time
    Touch me I like that
    Hold me that is good too
    Like I will be doing you

    Just let me unfold

    levels of complexities...

    ...often times created by the need to show DEPTH...when we only need to show TRUTH. (from the annals of a shallow man)

    let the river flow.

    I hear what Brother baller is saying, we need someone who can handle that truth, appreciate it, love it for all that it is. I can relate, wonderful flow.

    I

    will unfold you

    one petal at a time

    like the peach petals of a rosebud

    let them open

    one by one

    releasing sweet aromas

    of simple complexities

    that will be shared

    between you

    and

    I
