One’s Dependability Over Self - Poem by tushawn white

We were once friends
Hand and hand
Like an old ball dance
As you sprinkle your magic
I later become a fan
For your sex, love, and kiss
Every night before eight
Watching you sleep
Like an angel overseas
Protecting you from danger
And guiding you to the end
It was my dependability you like
That you now had to appeal
Before another problem
I listen to my heart
Because I foresee the future
You giving me a child
With such beauty at sight
It makes the world go blind
Second is your hand
With a ring to a band
I not sent from God to chase you
It more like I am here to embrace you
Was I not a good man
Did you not promise me those things
I asking for a chance
To prove I am the man
Who going to take care of your life
And continue to lead you to the light
Everyday I think of you
On the other hand I know you do
But later think it through
Because I still love you
Even if I have to die
Just to be in your life
I would do it a million times
Because I now want to cry
After days out of my life
On my knees I sing a song
Of hope when you are gone
Such a legend our love became
But history it will not be
Because deep down some where
You still believe in me
Don’t give up on me
After one situation
That never meant to happen
I love she
And she love me
Real Talk…
