Show Me - Poem by Christina Simmons

I asked my self do I love you? Although there are times
I remained good enough by worshipping the grounds you walk on
Giving loads of baby-talk - ever so sweet and nice: butter wouldn't melt
But there are times I let rip by getting loose - behaving like a child

An absolute bitch who doesn't care too shits about where it will end
A bird, easily can fly away leaving your side
That's when goodness then seem to go out the window

My love for you becomes an obsession
Desire to control your movements - instead of letting
you be; allow you to roam - be the man you are
Asked the lord up above, Give me the strength to love my dude
Without the need to possess his soul - insult his masculinity

I am just a woman who grew into womanhood
Much too fast and much too soon - don't want to be without
you by my side: even though sometimes I push you away

Really I'm just fearful and frighten of being on my own
Be patient - ignore my tantrums - take with a pinch of salt
grin and bear it; you don't get sourness and vinegar all day-long
Honey - sugar comes into play - great big red strawberries too
Just help me to love you the way that you want to be loved
