    Wheres my heart
    That once layed
    On tha doorstep of you
    In every way
    undenied

    Where's my heart
    That was exposed
    To you every day
    Stripped away tha
    Fake
    And was replaced with tha real

    Real as you was on

    Mind wanders endlessly
    Day after day
    In you I thought I was found
    In you I thought I was free

    Now moving along stupidly
    Games cause reckage
    Still lifes lessons gotta be learned

    What is it for real
    Sensual bliss
    consumed my bodys dome

    Without a physical touch
    Ya words weren't minced
    And felt so strong

    I was learning you
    And you was learning me

    Like an oasis
    I realized I had been
    faked out
    So subtly
    You let tha cat out

    Past lives
    You did so easily
    My past life
    Is no mystery

    Had me in a daze
    Blurry from tha purple haze
    It was a song that tha cage bird sings

    So stressed that tha flesh rules you over
    And it always wins

    Can't break gravity
    And you flow within

    Where's my heart, kid
    You know what I mean
    Can't live this life like I'm walking in a dream

    Can't go on
    Living in this fantasy
    Its gotta be you
    Or it's gotta be me

    Wanted to believe the lies
    Knew you were disguised
    I smiled cuz ya style was raw
    Loose my mind
    Still I will survive
    Through every line

    Feet keep dancing
    I used to want you
    but walked into a dead end.

    Hi Sis
    So true
    No matter how what happens
    in our life time, it is always
    a lesson we have to learn
    just so we can either get better at it
    or pass it on. In all we do become
    stronger, much love sis
    This is a well felt piece.

    Peace~N~Love

    When we think we've found beauty only to find it was false the pain can't be denied, and I felt the pain in this write sis. But, the future holds a brighter day.

    man

    sista you'll be good
    that's understood

    he thought was cool
    now who's the fool?

    you laid it out there
    you put it out there
    and sometimes
    sometimes
    it just don't seem fair

    peace my west coast brethren

    smooth flow :)

    Wow...i can relate definitely. Those kinds of people are definitely not people we should keeps in our lives, but at the same time pieces of those people make us the person we are today :) Always a pleasure seeing your art!
