    Woman:
    I'm sitting here looking at you
    Thinking back on all the stuff you put me through
    And I have to say it's crazy to even be here with you
    I mean, after what you made me do

    Man:
    I'm so sorry
    It will never happen again, I want back my family
    You should want the same thing too mami
    Becuz, I'm finally ready to be a papi

    Woman:
    Well, it seems those words are much too late
    And you should think about that b4 the mess you create
    I hate
    You and this whole thing was a mistake

    Man:
    No it wasn't
    And I want to be your husband
    I'm sorry about your cuzin'
    She came onto me when I was buzzin'

    Woman:
    It doesn't matter
    You can still be a father
    But I don't want this relationship to go any farther
    Especially after that incident with Heather

    Man:
    Heather?
    Oh, Heather and I weren't together
    We were just hugging in bed together
    It was nothing serious, but I can see how you would think it was.....I wish everything was better

    Woman:
    I wish it was too becuz I did something stupid
    I can't believe what I did
    You weren't worth it
    And I don't believe a word you ever said

    Man:
    Hold on, what did you do?
    I never meant to lie to you
    It's just a brotha got to do what a brotha got to do
    You know how I do

    Woman:
    Well, in that case I had to do what I had to do
    You think you're the only one that can mess around, do you?
    Well, you're not. I hate you
    See, what you made me do? (*crying*)

    Man:
    What, baby? What did I make you do?
    You can tell me boo
    I won't overact. I love you
    And anything you say we can get through

    Woman:
    No we can't becuz it's just that big
    You will never again want to be in my bed
    After what I say, you will want me dead
    You made mistakes but mine is way big

    Man:
    What, tell me
    I want to know so I can get on with my family
    Be a happy daddy
    And make love to you daily

    Woman:
    Well, that's just it. You have no family
    This is MY baby
    Not your baby
    And there will be no more making love daily
    Especially not to this lady

    Man:
    What to you mean
    You sound insane
    This is my baby Lorraine
    And I'm going to take care of it, you know what I'm saying

    Woman:
    No, no, no.
    It's not yours Rilo
    And it never was so
    I suggest you go

    Man: (*silent*)

    Woman:
    You see, I got tired of sitting at home all along
    Crying waiting for your calls by the phone
    The only one that ever came by to check on me was yo boy Jerome
    And finally, he just couldn't take it no more


    Man: (*silent*)

    Woman:
    You see, it was never about love with you
    While I loved you with all my heart you still flew
    You flew right by me, and you expect me to be a wife to you?
    Who?

    Man:
    Baby, I'm sorry
    I never meant to hurt you, can you forgive me?
    I was so quick to run between legs
    That I never once heard you as you begged


    Woman:
    No, I can't forgive it
    You made me do it
    Don't you know I love you? Yeah, you said it
    But the difference was I meant it

    Man:
    I'm sorry
    I'm so sorry
    so so sorry
    Forgive me

    Woman:
    No, leave me alone
    This house is no longer a home
    Get out, come in Jerome (*motioning to the door*)
    Go back to the bed you just came in from

    Man: (*looks over at Jerome*)
    I can't believe that you would do this to me
    You was my boy and now you want to take my lady
    What kind of friend are you to me
    Acting all friendly and then you disrepect me

    Jerome:
    It's crazy
    That you would treat a woman this way
    You said that this was your lady
    Well, why would you **** others every night and day?

    Man: (*silence*)

    Jerome:
    Yeah, silence is your best friend
    You are the one that sinned
    But it's to you I was commend
    Becuz if you were never my friend
    I wouldn't have met Lorraine in the end

    Man: (*walking away*) (*pauses in doorway to look at Woman*)
    I'm sorry Lorraine
    For any pain
    That I cause down the lane
    My love for you is insane

    Woman:
    I understand

    Man: (*looks at Jerome*)
    Thank you for always treating me right
    And thank you for loving my wife
    You are my brother for life
    I'm just sorry that it ended with so much strife (*walks out of house*)

    Woman and Jerome: (*kissing*)

    Story fades into a happy ending.....

    I'm sorry that this was so long but after I started typing I could stop. :geek: The story just unfolded right in front of me. Especially since I just broke up with my boyfriend. Anyway, the moral of this poem is that you should trate people how you want to be treated. If you treat someone like **** that they will treat you the same way. What goes around come around. Also, what you think is trash is someone else treasure. This goes out to anyone out there who finds themselves cheating or hurting someone intentionally. Watch out, they might be doing the same thing to you too behind your back.

    This read like scenes from a play. I loved the detail in this, kept me interested from beginning to end. It was very easy to read also, I just coasted right along, it never seemed as though it was too long. Flow on lil sis.

    this reminds me of some drama off a talk show or somethin'... i wonder why people can stay together if they both doing dirt. why even be a couple if neither is being faithful? anyway, this was so real and i enjoyed it.

    Thank you familee....I'm so glad that you liked it. I really thought that it was too long though but I felt that if I took something out then the next line wouldn't have sounded right. Anyway, thank again for feeling my soul realease.
