The Emancipation Of Myself - Poem by shamon mackey

Some days I just sit and wonder what it would be like if…..
You would have just let me love you
And you loved me back
It’s just a simple task and not that much to ask
If we could hug and kiss sitting there and just reminisce
on our first embrace
or when we first met face to face
If we could just laugh and hold hands
and I would realize how good it feels to have you as my man
As we talk about visiting exotic lands
Then our tongues would touch
and I would realize how I love you so much
How you would have me feeling outside myself
and I know there couldn’t possible be anyone else
to make me feel this way
and I know we would exchange vows and have beautiful babies some day
If I could just be on this ultimate high
then I would repeatedly thank God for bring you into my life
Then the realization of the vividness of my imagination
gives this new emancipation of myself.
Although this dream consists of you
I know that it’s meant for someone else
Some one who could understand
and cherish the queen that lives within
and not try to change who I’ve always been
He will give me his affection and time
And when we are not together I know I am constantly on his mind.
Loyalty and trust will be our foundation
Honesty and faith will hold up our walls
And love will be the roof that covers it all
And in my heart I know this house of commitment that has been built can never be destroyed
Because I have found the love of a true man…a real man
And I will not settle nor compromise myself worth for a silly ass boy.
