Lifelong LoverLoneliness is my lover, his touch and caress as gentle as the breeze. I'll keep on giving myself if that is what he needs from me, he'll take and take and steal my breath, through kisses til there's nothing left. But he's my lover, my loneliness, i look back and it's always been, he and I, I and him.Lifelong Lover3 weeks ago in Urban & Spoken Word
JustificationI never loved you, I just wanted what I couldn't haveJustification1 week ago in Urban & Spoken Word
Everything that happened was in my mind not you
Even if we were together it would have never lasted
How can you know it's love when it's only unrequited
There is no such thing as "the one"
If it was meant to be why aren't we together
I could fall in love with anyone if I made up my mind
It's a phase; I'll "fall out of love" with you
I don't deserve you or true love
The timing was wrong so it doesn't matter
I'll find someone new and fall in love madly with him
How could you ever love someone like me
I couldn't have a lot, I only never stopped wanting you
Each time you do anything it baffles me how perfect you are
God blessed me with seeing the if; we were magical
I have never loved someone so much requited
How did I fall in love with you twice unexpectedly
The greatest tragedy is people who don't end up with their soulmates
I tried to so hard but I never truly loved him
It's been over a decade; how much longer
You were perfect, and I
I Know You KnowThe thing that separated us was always pride.I Know You Know1 month ago in Urban & Spoken Word
I went back to the start.
I saw my refusal to see your apology
I saw my pride preventing me from seeing tenderness
Then the second time you tested me
You entreated if my words were true
To lay down my pride and come to you
And again my pride led me to fall short
I tell the world you're the only one I loved
And truth be told rather than tell you
I would rather put a bullet through my brain
Meaning once again my pride is too much.
But you have a future wife you could lose.
And I have one more half try left in me,
But my heart had said its goodbyes and is
Ready to make the sacrifices expected and
Give life to the neverending tragedy of when
A soul recognizes its counterpart and keeps
Messing up its chances to be completed so
Maybe giving up gives others chances to but
If I should hang on...please tell me
Before its truly too late this time.
Hanging On After LoveThe first time I was innocentHanging On After Love1 month ago in Urban & Spoken Word
Wanting something to give life meaning
Wanting a love to shake my foundations
Wanting a love worth dying for so
Living for means so much more.
The second time you have you heart broken
So many times but you want to love again
Give life meaning some guy you're willing
To gamble everything on just one more time
Because what is life without love?
What happens when both times you're ready
The same guy walks in your life and
You wonder how God could be so cruel
To let you fall in love with the same guy twice
To have him not fall in love with you, again.
But third times a charm, right? And even
If future you looks at you crushed you wonder
With her crushed spirit is this your future?
Can you fight one more time before your final
Sacrifice? Can you hope one more time?
Can you hope that despite all your flaws
There is something worth fighting about you?
Something you won't let pride, or resentment
Stop you this time? Will you finally be enough?
Is someone actually
