Favorite Quote:
"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare

He's staring at the clock, waiting to play basketball

I'm staring at him and each time I look, I fall

I fall into the trap of loving him all over again

And every time I love him, I hurt to no end


Why does loving him hurt so bad to my bones

He's the first love I have ever known

Every day he's the swirly hearts on my brain

And every night he's the teardrops like rain


His hands holding me is all I want sometimes

Nothing fills the ache of longing but penning out these rhymes

Not even then because I still wish that he was here

But unless my name is Spalding, he doesn't really care


What I really want- I hope it's not a lot to ask

I need security; I need a lover that will last

When all is said and done, I still can't get him out my head

But since his heart is blind to me, I'll just write poetry instead


I wish you would adore me and that I could be the one

The only I'm not, but, boy, these rocks, you layin weigh a ton

And when you're off on a contract, shooting in real nets,

playing the game you treasure

I'll remember how my heart felt when you made my heart melt

And love you forever and ever
