Sorry
u gon have to deal til i get my ass in gear
real post gon be up lata today)


I fail to understand how it is
that you could treat me the way you do
I could never imagine
carrying life inside my womb
for nine months, spirits watched
moon after moon as i grew
How it is you didn't feel the need
to touch me
sing to me lullabyes
even if u thought
i couldn't hear you from inside
I cannot imagine not feeling
excited anew at every discovery
of every new phase
from the ultrasound pictures
staring open-mouthed
dazed
to the first kick, stopping midstride
stunned and amazed
Tell me why
why it is u saw fit to walk away
Why i wasn't given the chance
Why you had no words to say
All i want to know is
WHY?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

touch me

please
just


touch me in the morning
a prayer she'd say each night as her eyes would close
and her soul would hope
that those who took comfort in her parted thighs
silk mahogany that drove men to ecstasy under cover of night
might just once
take the time to realize that she just
needed to be held

just wanted to know what it would be like
what it would
feel like

to know
someone had stayed
cared enuff to hold her thru the night
and be there to

touch her in the morning

to know the feel of flesh against her own
to awaken to the sun clear on the horizon
and have someone beside her
smiling
and not drift out of her life like
every man she's ever known

so
if you could just
touch her in the morning
cuz she's grown sick and tired of


being alone

Freaky Deaky said...

Ever watched I love New York? I actually like New York but not her show. Two many stiff legs and not enough gushy gushy makes it unwatchable to me for more than a few minutes at a time.

Ever been to the big apple? How'd u like it? Never been.

Ever met a celebrity? Not really.

been on tv? I've seen myself on the news a couple of times.

Been a guest on a talkshow? been in the audience? Not yet but I'd like to be in the audience of a couple of shows.

Been to an awards show? Nope.

If u were famous

what would you be known for? - Author/screen writer

what would you drive? - Sometimes and when I didn't then I'd have a chauffeur.

would you make your political views public? - I wouldn't hide them but I don't think I'd necessarily feel the need to share my affiliations and such.

who would they pair you with in the tabloids? - Who wouldn't they? I'm not 2Pac but I get around.

would you have any stalkers? - Of course, nothing but the finest and most delusional of female stalkers for me.

would you have an entourage? - Nope, I don't do crowds and I don't share my shine or glory with hanger-ons.

what other famous people would you hang with? - No one in particular.

who would you have on speed dial? - My mama, my lawyer, my CPA, my management company, and bunch of big booty freaks.

who would hate/ be jealous of you? People I grew up with, exes, haters, anyone who wants to is free to.

who would try to take advantage of you? - The industry and everyone else who think they have an in. But the key word is try.

where would you live? - Don't have a clue but probably not NY or LA.

would you insure any parts of your body? Nope.

You're askin madd questions...and I don't want to blow up your comment section either...so Imma keep it Devito (short lol)

Never been to NY, but want to. I've met several celebs...Missy, Timbaland, Pharrell, Allen Iverson (thats what happens when you live in the 757 of VA)

I want to be famous for spreading knowledge and opening doors for people behind me.

Pan/Thanatos said...

I just wanted to comment on the second piece of prose... that was really deep. I started reading it kinda "matter-of-factly" but it drew me in and I had to drop everything else. Kinda like tunnel vision.
Really deep, but really sad. As if the spirit isn't happy with the vessel.

The Jaded NYer said...

jameil1922 said...

i abstain from that horrid show. i watched the first 2 seasons of that and the other show she got her start from. no more! no more i say!! i can't watch people disgust me for those eye sores!! i found out personal shoppers just bring the clothes to you and you say yes, no, yes, no. love that. i would absolutely have one esp. b/c you make them understand what you like/don't like. my political views are already very public. i meet/see celebs in the oddest places and with disturbing frequency.

Rich said...

your posts are crazy long and you swing multiple moods at once. Nevertheless it is still all good.

Been to NY once, back in the 80's, and it was dirtier than I expected so I haven't really wanted to return, but I think I'll end up visiting this year.

I'm already famous, haven't you heard, so how i'm living, is how I'm living. Fugg the haters.

I'm the cat who wants to be known for helping to free folks' mind. Open them up to life.

I would answer those questions but I just got finished answering a million on them on my blog lol

OK OK i'll make an attempt lol. been to NY last week:-) It was cool. Just wish I knew where I was going.

I never met a celebrity..dont think I care too. Heard most of them are stuck up..would really hate to have my fav celeb be on some "im better then you" ish lol

I really wish you would stop calling your poetry bootleg!!! Your good girl:-) no seriously:-)

One Man’s Opinion said...

Okay, if I were famous I would be known for my art work. It would be my family who would try to take advantage of me, but I would not change much. I would probably get my Avalanche back, because I would be able to afford the gas, and a bigger house, so I could take care of my mom the way she needs to be cared for. I would also pay off her house and let the deed beats stay there. Other than that not much would change. i am a simple man with simple needs.

Mizrepresent said...

Yasmeen Christian said...

Love your blog. Really inspirational.

Marleaux said...

Never really watched NY.

Never been to NY, but want to go.

Lil cousin is J-Boog from B2K. He brought Kyla Pratt and the Jennifer from Wife and Kids to the family reunion once. Big cousin is a casting agent, so I tag along with her to events, screenings and premieres. Celebs are usually the least interesting at the events.

Been in a DJ Quik video when I was like 14 or 15. I'll have to find it to post on my blog. That’s another person I actually know, though he knows me as lil Marcus (my older brother)…

No talk shows, no award shows.

If I were famous I'd bring style back to the Style channel. The new style version of Rachel Ray. Work my 15 minutes and release a book, start my own production company. As a matter of fact, I'll start my own channel and my production company would produce most of the shows. Actually my dream has always been to start my own production company, but I know sooo many producers and they're sooo broke...

I'm actually for hire as a personal shopper, so I'd still do it then. Maybe have my own personal shopping service and cater to my celeb friends, like Naomi Campbell does with her marketing company.

My convertible would be an Aston Martin DB9 at $183k. My truck would be a Range Rover Supercharge @ $93k, yeah, that's the one that growls. And my reg lil car would be a Lexus GS Hybrid, gotta please the greenies. Probably go to the Ivy in it once a month to get it in a photo. And yeah, this list was in my head before you asked. lol. I'm actually a car freak.

I'd be in the tabloid with my future baby daddy Pharrell.

I actually have a stalker. It's kinda funny, but scary at the same time. I imagine he'll still be hanging outside my Hancock Park home once I'm famous, and run away every time my boyfriend comes down stairs with a bat.

Yep, I'd have an entourage: Cooper, Brebre, Miss Bre, Leelee, Lela, Mari, Marlon, Marquis and lil Marcus. Ages 5 mos on up. I actually do hang with them the most on weekends, so that won’t change.

Bloggers will be my famous friends. Yep, all of us bloggers are, just google urself and see. I’d be the one flying in my private jet to GA, NY and the Chi for local blogger meetups. I’d be the only LA blogger in the room... Oh and I love the boyz, so the Black Jay from Top Model and B Scott...

I'd probably still have Phillip's Bar-b-que, Pizza Hut and Thai Bamboo as my only numbers on speed dial.

Hater/Jealousy: That batch in the AP dept.

Take Advantage: Banks, they would probably add a famous fee to my account, tha bastards...

I'd live in Hancock Park. Summers in Malibu, but will have an apt in NY and ATL.

I'd probably insure my mouth piece...

I wasn't on for anything bad nor was I interviewed. One time was during high school. My school set up some metal detectors and of course since my school was the flagship school of the city with the brightest and the best (i.e. the smart, good kids) it made the news.
