Brother what is it that you want from me?
I let you into my life and you want to control me
I then became your wife and you chose to deceive me
I showed you love and you gave back hate
You wanted to reconcile, but by then I knew it was too late
I stroked your back and in turn you struck me
I watched you sleep and you made me weep
I told you that you were my one and only, and you claimed to have many
I am twenty eight now but I have been loving you since I was twenty
You said love dont love nobody, but I say love has always loved me, and as a strong and wise BLACK woman who loves and respect herself I can no longer allow you to hurt me.
