' If You Know Me - Poem by Efe Benjamin

i don't want you
to know me,
if you know me,
you will
not respect me.
i want you
to respect me
like i respect you.
i don't want you
to love me
'cause you
don't know me,
if you love me,
i might break
your heart as
someone like you
broke my heart.
i don't want you
to come to my house
'cause i don't want
to be a fornicator,
like i was before
i changed my life.
these things are
not part of my life,
love and lust
are not my priority,
i want you to see
this reality.
