    Livid textures of some long passed memory
    that we've been holding on to with our nails
    bending...
    Distorted figures that want to
    **** Us, in the dark,
    then surreptitiously leave before daybreak
    as if love was a vampire stuck on Punani
    and a little bit of head.
    Yet, still we growwww (inhale)
    like heavy thick wood dug Deep into earth
    tryna reach for the sun and pierce the universe
    with French tipped fingers
    gripping unto moons, only to relapse into cosmo birth.
    Bellicose verbs wrap round our fat bellies, like
    "Leave" "Stay" "Run" "**** him"
    All that we want is to cloud the skies for a minute
    and Rain down heavy on the entire world,
    or just carpet the dirt on the ground
    and make that long walk home easy, for him-
    Saturated by simple images, like being Woman was a song
    and loving Man was easy, or being simple
    was all we got, and being complex and multi
    faceted too masculine. Everything in us wants
    to Claw and Rip through convulsions like ecstasy
    and just be Hard, and Soft and Difficult and Eeeasy.
    Everything in us wants to glove and protect
    that thing in us that won't reach home, like regret.
    Like a tepid note that keeps hitting dull-like, Screwing
    with every relationship we attempt, validating
    the Swoosh in our steps, or the Weak in our beds-
    "just give it to him quick, before he turns his heads"-
    Comfort food, and an additional Twenty-five ponds
    for loving a fool who couldn't understand the dirt
    in our finger nails if he tried...Clawing the earth
    like we tryna unsurface some great treasure, loving
    men that don't seem to understand forever, giving
    up tomorrow, like today would be any better, winning
    stretch marks, and becoming a Woman. Proper.

    This was RICH and DEEP! and so profound!

    This was so beautiful and bittersweet, like the
    tainted fruit that we women often eat, just to
    sustain that in us that simply yet complexily
    wants to be loved and respected instead of
    mistreated and rejected...I am a woman PROPER!
    Blessings on Your House! :bowdown: :bowdown:
