    Who’s the fool now, my brotha…
    Who’s the fool now?

    Thought u were fooling me?
    What’s that? A limp? Yes, I think u shot yourself in the foot..

    No, my brotha, u don’t rock my boat
    Or stir my pot…and u definitely don’t
    Make me hot…

    Okay, so I admit I had a brief moment of insanity
    But I swear that bed had some sort of strong force of gravity
    That just pulled me plonk…on to it..and u..just happened to fall on top of me…
    I guess….

    Some things are meant to make u stronger cause they don’t break u…
    Well I’m not broken cause u weren’t strong…

    No, my brotha, u don’t rock my boat
    Or stir my pot and definitely…u don’t make me hot..

    hmmm
    my sistah...
    does either one have to be THE FOOL
    in the end
    when the playing's done
    and the tally's in
    did he have to be a fool for wanting you
    or, you, a fool...for giving of you
    does the lesson learned through one night of passion
    says you were a fool for asking for it
    was it worth it
    to learn that he wasn't who you thought he was
    ...to you
    and you weren't who he thought you were
    ...to him
    and life isn't always as good as we'd like
    and rivers run shallow
    in the wee hours of the night
    when we're lonely
    does he have to be a fool
    because you had a weak moment?

    does he,
    my sistah

    hmmm...my brotha, baller..

    The fool is the weak one standing feeling used and abused..
    the one refusing to acknowledge he wanted it as much as i wanted it..the one standing with his lie exposed..

    The one who maybe anticipated that I would melt like weak pot because of a shallow declaration of love which, when push came to sholve...failed. The fool is the one who thought he could fool me into something by saying something that he maybe thought i wanted to hear, when all along, he didn't have to say a thing..
    cause i just simply wanted it..the fool is the one who realised his words actually meant nothing but the night...everything..

    take that! my brotha.

    there is a minute when we're all CAUGHT UP in it...and we say things we think we're supposed to say...mean it or not...it doesn't mean that we think ill of the other...or that the brutha was trying to PLAY you...since you were cool with the HAPPENINGS...and circumstances placed you in that situation...can we just be happy with the memory.

    did he anticipate your melting...or did you think he should have? there are many questions that could be asked...that won't be asked coz it's no one's business what the night held...so, why am i going places i shouldn't go...and getting CAUGHT UP in someone else's jello.

    everything is everything, my sistah
    ...as long as you're happy with it.:)

    peace&manyblessings
