Let’s say we get together by the end of the week
She simply said, “No”, labelled me a ho
I said, “How you figure?” “My friends told me so”
I hate when silly groupies wanna run they yap
Word to God, hon, I don’t get down like that

that’s you, near the sun, where it’s warm; and that’s me, where light barely penetrates and it’s cold.

There is this odd trend
of taken women
saying they are too much,
and how the men they love
are amazing for dealing with them.

Love should not be a responsibility.
You should not have to deal with me.
Just because a woman is wild
and free
does not mean she is difficult.
He is not a martyr for loving me
through the good
and not so good.

Some mornings I will wake up swinging,
you do not get a gold star
for still loving me.

Some mornings I will wake up like a lamb,
you do not get a gold star
for loving me.

I am not a hurricane of a girl,
you always have the chance to leave.
