i wish that i could unpinn you from my heart
i wish that at the clcik of a click i could make you fall to the bottom
of this pit, pity me
because i was a fool for you
i was stuck in romance flipped hearts over twice like sunny side up eggs
a dagger in my heart
undo this dressing that’s topped my fashionable ways
duck and drive through some new hoops for you
go under the roof and on top of the moon howling at you
because i don’t know how to get you off
it’s as if we’re buttoned together
and i’m shut up
in my room, in my room
i can’t get over you that easily
it’s annoying, quite frankly to have you always on top
always lingering like a star in the sky
sun to moonrise and moons to the starscrapes away on my windowpanes
all caught in this lusting of an idea
a case caught
under my skin & you’re pricking the fuck out out me
I bet bees have a field day with sunflowers
As they jump from petal to petal like a child at the amusement park busy on their way does the work of life ever stop
Does love ever take time to breathe
Assuredly, it must
She must remove herself from that location and move on
A worker, pressed for time
It’s never too late
But she’s always waiting for that next jump, that next sweetness
That next petal to land on
Another will always arrive
“I was rollin’ around, in my mind it occurred
What if God was a her?
Would I treat her the same? Would I still be runnin’ game on her?
In what type of ways would I want her?
Would I want her for her mind or her heavenly body?
Couldn’t be out gettin’ bogus with someone so godly
If I was wit’ her would I still be wantin’ my ex?
The lies, the greed, the weed, the sex
Wouldn’t be ashamed to give her part of my check
Wearin’ her cross, I mean the heart on my neck
Her I would reflect on the streets of the Chi’
Ride wit’ her, ‘cause I know for me she’d die
Through good and bad call on her like I’m chirpin’ her
Couldn’t be jealous ‘cause other brothers worship her
Walk this earth for her, glory, I’m grateful
To be in her presence I try to stay faithful”

I get paid on Thursdayyy, rest of y’all bitches gotta wait till Friday.
My favorite pizza place does this Tuesday Night special. Where whatever time you call is the price you pay for a large cheese pizza (between 6pm-9pm). I called at 6:02pm, I paid $6.42. I was like Wtf? The dude goes “Oh yeah, there’s tax.”
No, I called at 6:02, I expect my pizza to be $6.02. I feel lied to.
No matter where you look in history, every person or establishment that has ever been in power treated their people horribly. And when you did get the good leaders, they were overthrown by their military or someone in their own circle because of greed. No matter who you look at. Europeans trying to “civilize” or the Kings that engaged in the Atlantic Slave Trade. It does not matter. There is, and I feel like, will always be a caste system in this world.
