    Why Am I Single?

    Yeah, that's the question
    I ask myself

    _____
    over

    &
    _____
    over

    &
    _____
    over

    again

    Is it by choice?

    Or am I just
    to damned choice"y"

    to break down in the end…

    And commit to the feelings
    I feel when I vibe in my
    own scribes

    that get me much play…

    that constantly
    blow minds…

    or so it's been told by some
    being far too kind

    Maybe it's me hatin' on those
    most unworthy…

    Who always seem to scream

    when I make their hearts cream

    Fulfilling their fantasies along with
    their dreams

    Love Poet, yeah that's me…

    Mos' def single and free…

    But you've just got to know it ain't
    all that's it's cracked up to be

    When I spit that love **** it causes
    some pain in the game

    Cause I reach from my heart

    and being alone ain't the same…

    I'd like to have someone to read my
    love lines to

    &

    shower with the passionate touch
    of my tongue…

    but the pickings remain few…

    But don't misconstrue…

    G's not sayin' he's better than most

    All he's sayin' is that all's not righteous

    Those are the ones who can get ghost

    When I lay down my love mentals

    For the female who can hang

    I'm sure I'll use the term

    T~A~K~E~N

    She'll be the words of my love slang

    Being single ain't bad though

    Cause I'm perfecting my heart

    So when the right one steps to me

    We dare not drift apart

    That day I'll be happy

    &

    Feelin' quite right

    Cause whomever S~H~E is

    will possess all of my love's might

    I'm

    not

    a casual poet

    I've spit

    nothin' but serious love

    So I'll continue that mental

    Till the sign from above…

    Gives me the go ahead

    to express

    all

    my

    love

    at its best

    No more single love poet

    G~L~O~O~M in the R~O~O~M

    Oh ****! Did you hear?

    GQ's done jumped the

    proverbial B~R~O~O~M?

    GQ...

    in an earlier piece, i asked, "are we lonely...by choice?" i believe that we are 'coz there are too many SINGLE PEOPLE out there to choose from...if we truely wanted someone.

    WHY ARE YOU SINGLE?

    b'coz your equal haven't arrived at your side...yet. BUT, she's on her way. WATCH OUT FOR THOSE BROOMS, Q.:)

    GQ,

    Here's something that was spoken to me a long time ago and i share when the moment arrives. You are a poet and one who seeks that which completes you. Well, here's a word that i pray will stay with you and transform those thoughts into a new realm of poetry in motion...

    "Write what I give you and I will give you what you write" - GOD

    Write her into existnace bro' for she is waiting to be planting into your existence...trust me...i definitely know how you feel...

    tight scribe poet...

    one.

    Now G

    it's taking EVERYTHING for me NOT to GO THERE with you!!!!!! Think I'll leave well enough alone...

    :eek: I am not worthy :eek:

    :eek: I am not worthy :eek:

    :lol: :rolleyes:

    But seriously, I have to say that there is nothing wrong with being choice"y". Lord knows I am but, there is no such thing as the perfect mate. I often ask myself the same question, "Why Am I Single?" The only answer I can come up with is that I'm trying too hard trying to FIND that one who'd complete me instead of allowing GOD to do his job in completing ME first...fashioning me for my Knight in Shining Armor.

    Know that in HIS appointed time, he will present you with your Queen when HE completes her.

    I think I'll even take heed to God's message sent by dnommo.

    "Write what I give you and I will give you what you write" - GOD

    much :heart: ;)
