    he woke me up\
    tweaked my brain
    in the middle of the night

    tryna get me
    to call that man
    but i would not
    cuz i aint forgot

    how he teased me
    unnecessarily
    couldn't love me the way
    a nubian princess should be

    he tried to whisper
    not to love myself
    and to recap bad things
    i'm tryna put on the shelf

    i fell to my knees
    and cried out
    dear lord make him flee
    he once again is trying
    to destroy me

    i had been tortured for
    days, months and weeks
    castin love to arid grounds
    where the aphids had feasts

    i was used and abused
    i was emotioally raped
    he wanted me to sit with hin
    and re-watch old tapes

    but i would not
    cuz i aint forgot
    what that man did to me
    i cooked and cleaned
    what did any of that mean?

    so i cried a few tears
    just happy God , u kept me
    safely in your arms
    when i acted foolishly

    and it aint easy
    cuz inside i want to hate
    but its pointless and love
    would make for sweeter cakes

    so when he comes tonight
    and decides to keep me company
    i'll be praying before he enters
    and calmly watch him flee..
