    When you wanted me
    I wasn’t there

    I ignored your advances
    I ran away

    Now I want you
    You are running away

    Questioning my intentions
    Questioning what I say

    My intentions are all I have
    I want to be with you now.

    You hurt me when you tell me
    You spent time with another man

    When I can’t get you
    To break me off some time

    I know what would fix us both
    It is to spend together our time

    You’re unhappy
    I am unhappy too
    Because we are lost in time

    I am walking away
    To give you space

    It hurts me
    It really does

    To think I am gambling
    To make you happy
    I may end up not having your love

    Another day, a week goes by
    A month, almost a year

    Mornin Hodee...

    One of many risks in matters of love, letting go and giving space in hopes its what will bring togetherness. Someone once told me love is making the other happy, or something like that. This reminded me of a deep conversation. Anywho, I enjoy what you do with words and emotions.

    If I may tell you a bit of advice from a woman's point of view. I Just left a man because of that same reason. He didn't say what needed to be said, and when I left him he was full of talk. I know that as Black men, you learn to hold your emotions inside for fear that your feelings won't be validated. But women, need that validation from our kings. We need to know just like we eat and breathe, that tomorrow will come to find Not the house or the cars or any of the material things we work our whole lives to obtain. You see, all we want is you my king. And when it feels like we don't have you, then we know for us that the journey of love has not ended and we must continue a search that just may end up a fruitless one. What ever you didn't say then, sounds like an untruth now. Now there comes the worrying if he is sincere, if he will break our heart.Say what you need to say my brother. Say it without fear. Love until it hurts without inhibitions.Declare it, write it across the moon if you have to, because you may not get a second chance to say, I love you.

    I enjoyed your write, because I feel you
    Love on Brother, Love On!

    Hodee I really enjoyed this piece, because you were mature enough to be honest and that is very admirable.

    Like the other ladies that offered words, it has been my experience that when you vie for a mans love and attention, and pour your heart out to him many times (not all) he wont return the same love...and soon as you tell him good-bye, he has so much to say....and do.....and I wonder to myself, Why is that?


    It is only when a man has been through this enough times, does the cycle stop.

    Some run from the fear of a love that overwhelms them. When they get that fear under control, unfortunately, that love has moved on with their life. Sad, but true. Your expression was so raw, and so well felt. Do flow on Poet Hodee.

    You are so on point. You understand clearly what happened.
    I ran in fear of something so expressed.
    It was public and repeated out loud.
    I was not prepared for such a declaration.
    She did move on and when I returned she was only a friend.

    Sometimes I wonder.. does she have my play book.. you know me so well.

    Thank You sweet apple*pie

    When a woman reaches out to a man.
    He better answer.

    He better not take into account
    What she doesn't have showing.
    She may have a child, she may be down right now on her luck.
    She may have it hard.
    She may even be strung out on drugs or alchohol.
    Her essence and her sprit has not opened yet.
    The right man can bring out the wealth in a woman.
    She will bring nothing but lovely things
    If her heart is focused and she feels loved.

    When a woman opens her heart
    For someone she loves
    The wealth of a nation is at hand.
    At that mans feet.

    It took me years to learn, a woman's worth.

    With this lady I ran.
    I do believe she held a key to a destiny I will never know.

    She had several of the issues I spoke about above.
    She has a child
    She was stung out on drugs.

    A man she loved and the father of her child left her feeling lost!

    sweet apple*pie

    I didn't know this and she didn't reveal
    It until after we came together years later and talked about how
    I messed up and how I viewed her when she was messed up on drugs.
    The drugs is the only reason I overlooked her.
    She called out for me when she needed some one
    She coud trust
    She later told me I was strong enough to help her.
    I walked away.

    Today we are still friends.
    I find out too she is wealthy
    In cash matters and was rebelling her life style.

    When I came back to her I saw she had cleaned up and I coud see she was doing better and wasn't stung out on drugs.
    I mis-judged and didn't look deep enough.
    I didn't like what she was doing when she was on drugs and she knew that.

    Hey fellows.. she wants to get married.. she is looking for a husband this year. One child.. a knock out :bomb:smile, and a lovely lady ... in so many ways.

    You got to come to Cali to meet her.

    Bring your "A" game.. she is on top of hers.



    One never misses the water until the well runs dry.
    One can't see the forest for the trees.
    A man can be shallow and not give a situation enough time and converstaion to understand what is really needed and wanted in a relationship.
    he hears obligations and he runs.... a true coward! A few of my best guesses
