    where is Love
    in a sex-crazed world
    where - "couldn't we just be friends?"
    is asked
    as if
    somehow
    friendship is a demotion
    from being
    my homey-lover-friend
    my one night stand
    my weekend thang
    my occasional swing
    that booty call
    when I feel lonely
    and only you
    can cure my
    love jones
    or
    when you
    got the need
    to "feel real special.....too"

    we both
    know each other ...well
    enough
    at least
    our bodies are well-acquainted
    we both want more ...sometimes
    but it seems like a fairy tale
    a myth that only children believe
    conceived, but never found
    can't face the possibility of pain
    of giving my heart over
    to a dream only
    to find its a nightmare
    as we sit and stare
    at each other
    like strangers
    trying to remember
    why we got together
    in the first place
    so if we begin to get too close
    if I feel too much
    I simply say,
    "can't we just be friends"
    or walk away...

    you see
    "love" is usually
    PC talk
    for "sex"
    when someone says
    I "love" you...
    it really means:
    I wanna "sex" you...
    Can I borrow your body for a minute?
    I mean
    I'm missing something and
    maybe I can find it by sexin you
    you know
    that "good" feelin
    that makes me feel alive
    like I'm somebody
    maybe I can find myself in your arms...this time
    that sweet release will last a little longer...this time
    if you do me right...just right
    I'm looking for that sexual healing
    its not you I want - its the feeling
    cuz sex ain't love
    you don't get love from sex
    you try to make it
    but don't fool yourself
    love is just a fairy tale
    sex is real - I'm giving you something you can feel
    a physical thang with no emotion pain
    is what I'm sayin
    no love dreams
    cuz I don't wanna be broken
    just want my token

    or maybe we can just be "friends"

    where is Love
    is this world?
    you tell me....

    I am completely enjoying your work.... may I just say that this:

    "you see
    "love" is usually
    PC talk
    for "sex"
    when someone says
    I "love" you...
    it really means:
    I wanna "sex" you...
    Can I borrow your body for a minute?
    I mean
    I'm missing something and
    maybe I can find it by sexin you
    you know
    that "good" feelin
    that makes me feel alive
    like I'm somebody
    maybe I can find myself in your arms...this time"


    is all too true. Speak on it, Poet.
