You asked me to change
You’re holding us back you said…
You asked me to change for the better so I did…
You said be more compassionate, so I became a humanitarian,
…be more domestically inclined, so I became a maid,
…open up to your inner sexual beast, so I became a pornstar,
…be spontaneous, so I asked you to be my wife.

Yet with all these changes the list keeps growing, your wants are never ending, do you even know who I am? You asked me to change but I will do so no more…I’ll kindly let go of your hand and I’ll remain the same, while You Change.

Tick tock, tick tock, the hands of life travels slowly around the clock…

Tick tock, tick tock, live love laugh and gay, if we are lucky that’s the time it will display…

Tick tock, tick tock, move faster my love before it stops…

Tick tock, tick tock, live your life without fear, evade the drop…

Tick tock, tick tock, the life cycle of humans are annotated by the knock.

My heart is tearing…**RIP** …I look into your face filled with the look of betrayal **RIP**your lips are covered with a thick coating of goodbyes **RIP ** I open my fingers to let the pieces of my heart fall to your feet, then I turn and walk away. Looking over my shoulder I cringe as I watch you walk over the pieces of my heart…my chest begins to burn and my heart gives up…sinking slowly to my death I close my eyes and whisper “I truly love you.”

Just Saying #9

I’m not her!
Her walk lead you to a rocky path, her music turned your words to lava with a different kind of spark. I’m not her.
I skip to a different tune and jump to a different beat, can’t you see I’m not her? So if my skip becomes a stroll that she may have stole or my jump reminds you of a joke she told, just remember my dear, I’m still not her.

The crows are coming they want your life,

The crows are coming this very night.

They ask that you accept your fate,

They ask that you open the gate.

The crows are wise they know your thoughts, they know the code to break your heart.

Don’t be afraid there’re not to blame, take note of their shadows, we’re all the same.

Natty ODou.
