destiny tatum


every thing that sparkels is not gold


tonight i watched you and for the first time in my life i looked into your eyes.i seen all the pain and hardache you have caused me and yet and still i hate to see you leave my restless heart all along. i wanted you i guess because you never wanted me and than on top of all that you where all that i ever dreamed. the way i should feel you know all the pain and hate but when i look into your eyes it all seems to go away. those green eyes has me and your wish is my commend. and i think you know that and thats were i need to take a stand. i use to think that one day you would love me for me and not what was under my skirt but i soon learned that that was never going to happen and i dont know why i even bother to put in work. so i accepted that and to my surpised i was ok with being the hoe on the side. maybe it was because of the way you looked at me or the way you made me look deep into those over ripped pear green colored eyes that im always so happy to see and the way that you look through me makes me weak to my knees. but things have changed. today is nolonger yesterday. every thing that sparkels is not gold. and my heart has been put on hold for way to long. so its time to let you go i just cant take it anymore.........to be continued

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
