Potential Love

Potential… Have you ever fell for someone’s “could be”? It’s really easy to do. You have someone that talks the talk, walks the walk… or at least some of the talk and some of the walk… yeah. Don’t do it again! What if that person never lives up to that potential? Like you’re waiting around for them to see how dope they could be but they’re more complacent than dope. Like dude, your complacency out weighs your dopeness? Potential will have you waiting around forever. Seeing and falling for someone’s potential is worst than someone asking you to wait for them. At least when someone ask you to wait they know they have potential and they’re giving you a head’s up that you’ll be waiting. When you fall for someone’s potential you don’t even realize you’re waiting for something. It’s like getting trapped, tangled, intertwined in a self woven web. You did this to yourself. Admitting it is the hardest step. And you know when you’ve fallen for potential because you find yourself defending that person’s dopeness with conversations like “girl, Sean is so smart. He fixed the tv last week and now he’s thinking about going back to school. He is way too brilliant to not have finished his engineering degree. He just hates homework, ya know.” But wait… “Bruh my baby can do your girls hair. She’s always doing her homegirls hair before the club. I’ve been trying to get her to get a cosmetology degree but she’s straight on that.”

Talents were given to us to use, not waste. Don’t fall for the man you know he could be, especially when he doesn’t know who he could be, fall for who he is and nurture what you see in him. Don’t fall for what you think she might be, nurture it until she sees it. If she never sees it, it’s okay to lover her from a distance. Don’t sit around and wait for anyone to be all they can be, they may never become what you see. You may be vision impaired!



Help me…

Somebody take my heart from me

I’m sure I can live without it

I need lungs to breath

A brain to think

My heart just hurts…

So somebody take my heart from me…

Somebody take my feelings from me

Not my senses just my feelings…

They are becoming worthless because they keep falling into the wrong hands

Hands of the man that never wanted to touch

Hands of the man that only wanted to touch

Hands of the man, well the boy, that won’t grow up

Just stand up

Be straight up

Man up

If exploration of my body is the topic

Tell me

If exploration of my soul is the object

Show me

If you just want to reach back and grab my ass just let it be known by me


It’s mine, whatever you want from me, is mine

I choose to give you me and you dine

On the feast that is my mind

my body

my spirit

my heart

my love

All mine

But I took the time

To let my light shine

So my heart you could find

But with that light I became blind

And my heart you missed, my body you did find…

So somebody take my heart from me…

Somebody take my heart from me

I don’t know how to use it

I always lose it

And someone always chooses to misuse it

Which shows me you found it

Cared nothing about it

Beat it


It was mistreated

Then stamped “Return to sender”

And my growth you did hinder

Future love is slender

This poor heart is tender

And I can’t fix it…

Clearly I continue to play tricks on it

So somebody take my heart from me

Maybe you can mend it

And if you can, keep it

Allow real feelings to deepen

Allow true love to creep in

Sneak in

Leak in

And strengthen

This weak lone muscle…

So somebody take my heart from me…

A Hopeless Love

I’ll leave my heart on your nightstand

I want you to have it

I already know you’re not the best man

Still I want you to have it

You treat me so bad sometimes

Even when love and honor are my only crimes

But I’ll leave my heart on your nightstand

I want you to have it

It’ll be there when you wake up

Waiting patiently before you fall asleep

I hope you’ll hold it daily

Or at least just think of me

I left my heart on your nightstand

Can you keep it safe for me?

You’ve done it before

Now no one else can come thru that door

So I left my heart on your nightstand

Please love me once more…
