Throwback to Poetry-Excerpt from the book!

Sometimes I feel like my kisses aren't enough, like if I give you my all, it's never
enough.
Cause men leave. They tell you they love you, then they leave.

So maybe if I run out
the back door now, I won't have to endure the pain that consumes my body like taking
a bath in HOT LAVA cause my experience is… men ALWAYS leave.
So I figure I'll start loving less and

you'll love me more and I'll hurt you before you
hurt me because that's something that doesn't live through me.
Or maybe I'll just let go all together, because I'm losing this tug of war. I'm losing, I
lost, I'm losing, I lost and I abandoned my leader when I went to the operating room
and then I began to hate you cause maybe I did this to myself.
I know I love you, no…. I don't hate you, I just I hate the fact of thinking I can't be
with you...
Eternally...

 

 

Men Always Leave

What if I told you my heart was letting go like water slips through rocks?
What if I spoke that I love you, but my heart won't let me love that hard?
What if I told you that I speak to you more in my heart than I do with my lips cause I
want to hand it to you, but I’d rather hold onto it?

And deliver subliminal messages

that speaks louder than my voice?
Louder than the mic that announces the next

Milliondollar
lottery ticket.
Louder than the sirens in the street. So loud that only God can hear it.
Sometimes I feel like my kisses aren't enough, like if I give you my all, it's never
enough.Cause men leave.T

hey tell you they love you, then they leave.
