Like a lighter to my cigarette
Just one touch
Sets me on fire.
Like the blood
Running through my veins
His love flows through me.
His voice makes me shiver,
One look makes me quiver.
I bask in this presence,
I am the apple of his eye.
By his side I can achieve anything.
He is my past, present and future.

It is not easy being alone,
It is not easy being a mother and father
If you put yourself in my shoes
Maybe you would understand.

It is not easy
When society rejects you
When you are judged
Because you made a choice
To be alone and happy
Not with someone and miserable.

Life is about choices
I chose to be different
To make a difference
In somebody’s life.

I said some nasty things
I did some crazy things
At the time i did not care
All I wanted was instant satisfaction.

What took years to build
Took hours to destroy
In the blink of an eye
Gone in a cloud of smoke.

I walked away
Refused to apologize
Scoffed in your face
Watched the tears cloud your eyes

Piss off
Don’t come near me
I am full of shame
And full of sin.

This is one of those days
When i bow my head
In shame and remember
All the people I hurt.

Two years ago,
We met at the mall,
Sized each other up
Neither of us was ready to approach the other.
Finally he gave in
Names and numbers were exchanged
Places of work and residences discussed
As we got to know each other better.
We sized each other up
Thought what good would come out of this.
Took the quiz if you would make a good spouse
How our children would look?
How we would look 20 years from now?
Would we still love each other?
As the relationship got deeper
We had exchanged love stories
Family history
School stories
And began to fall in love.
Our families met,
Dowry was exchanged.
I walked down the aisle
In my dream wedding dress.
That was until
We were about to say our wedding vows
Daddy walked in………

We were brother and sister………

I am sorry for what I did,
I didn’t mean to embarrass you.
I saw the look in your eyes
I felt the pain
I am ashamed of what I did.

I don’t know what I did wrong
But I can feel it all around
I can tell by the way
You look at me.
I miss the look
That said I was your only gal.

Maybe if I left
That would make things better.
Maybe if I disappeared
That would make you miss me.

As my apologies fall on deaf ears,
As my tears fall on dry ground
The pain in my heart
Will not heal
Till I see that look
Of forgiveness in your eyes.

After all these years,
After so many tears,
When I see you
When I hear your voice
When I think of you
I get butterflies.

It took me a lifetime,
I got another
The perfect destruction
The minute I heard your name
The butterflies came flooding back.

I heard through the grapevine
You were looking for me,
Asking how I am,
The moment I heard this,
The butterflies came back.

My legs won’t stop shaking
My heart won’t stop racing
Just the mention of your name
Sends shivers down my spine.
You still have the power
To give me butterflies.

Dearest Pooh bear,

You are the love of my life, you are the air that I breathe. My world revolves around you, without you I am nothing. I remember the last time we were together, it still feels like yesterday. Your memories keep me warm at night, my heart aches with every tear I cry. I hold my pillow tight and close my eyes dreaming of you holding me, as we slow dance to our favorite song. The teddy bear you gave me, never leaves my side. Why did things have to end this way? Why did you have to walk away? I hope this letter gets you in time, before you walk down the aisle and make the greatest mistake of your life.

Lots of love,
Sugar Plum.

Like a shadow,
Like the devil in the dark
She is there.
She knows his every move
She knows his thoughts.
Reads his mind before he speaks
Knows the right things to say
When to say them.
When he is alone
She is his companion,
His best friend
When he seems to have none.
Acts like his woman,
Lover and best friend.
Like a hyena
Having eaten to its fill
She retreats into the shadows.

If you knew she was playing you.
The lines she used,
She had just told her lover last night.
When you made love to her.
She was thinking of another.
The time you spent courting her,
Many others were doing the same
She used you like many used her.
If u knew she despised you,
Every time she looked at you.
You were her means to an end,
Just a pawn in her game……….
