    Our first date was the best in the world

    Didn't understand how he wanted me to be his girl

    Things moved fast his kiss, so sweet

    I loved the way he rubbed my feet

    We slowed it down, he didn't rush me at all

    I loved the way he was so tall

    Thought this was the man of my dream

    As time went on I wanted to scream

    What started out as sweet attention

    Quickly ended with avenges

    you CAN"T and you WON"T

    Is what I heard

    I was so scared

    This was absurd

    It wasn't till this day I knew

    Had to find away for this to be through

    No one new my in house pain

    That this man was really insane

    Had to find away to end my suffering

    In my mind so much wondering

    Made him mad as much as I could

    Understanding that he would

    Put me in my place and at the end scare my face

    Self defense is not a crime

    go ahead, hit me one more time

    grabbed the bat from behind the chair

    At last I wasn't scared

    As he lay there on the floor

    There I go out the door

    Didn't know where I went wrong

    Loving a man or nothing at all

    So ladies this is a message to you

    Know who he is before your life is through

    don't be blinded by the sweet

    never let him knock you off your feet

    pay attention, and stand firm

    CAN"T and WON"T

    Should never be heard

    The bat this time was in your favor
    but...
    As you know, it could have been a different flavor.
    So you're right, get to KNOW who you love...
    before you love what you didn't know...there's a big difference!!
    Great piece poet, glad ya made it out on top.

    Scary to ponder this, thinking you know someone well enough to love them, only to find they are a stranger, and a dangerous one at that. I agree with queent, I'm glad you made it out on top as well. Potent piece.

    Hi beautifulblkw
    You go my sister
    We all have to know
    how to defend ourselves
    and we are going to be scared
    but that is only for US to be more
    caution in making sure
    the first blow out in what ever
    we need to do. Kepp dropping the flows
    Much love

    Peace~N~Love

    How easily we get caught up in the surface romance...so eager and hungry for love and attention that we allow ourselves to be swept away. This is a great message for us all! Excellent write my sistah!

    "No weapon that is formed against Thee/me shall Prosper.
    -this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, Saith the Lord"
    Isaiah 54:Verse 17:Lines 1&3
