Quote of the day: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Is it all a farce?
A devilish ploy, designed and passed down through a wicked fraternal tradition, to make an innocent succumb to the perils of premarital sex and other various faux relationship woos.Am I your toy?
Your ultimate conquest?
Make her whimper-fall prey to the big bad wolf? Am I this said prey that has beeen once hunted in pure play in hunt of a quick thrill?
Is this deviant and ill-composed ‘chase’ really worth future heartache of another?
Are you playing me?
What is it you desire?
My squeals from intimacy induced dances?
I plead in lack of angst or even in seek of anything else beyond pure curiosity derived from my deep skepticism, grave fear and horrific past heartbreak.
What is it that you want from me?
Woman to man—
Straight with no chaser
I present to you in all of my nakedness. My truth.
Will you let me be…let me free…leave me…
If it is so—that your intentions are tainted for other desires than love.
If you seek a lover—solely and purposefully please let it be known and save me another grudgingly heartache at the expense of my dignity.
Let me be.
If you seek a buzz—a quick sexual jolt, an exchange of temporary ecstasy—be loud with your tongue and speak your rendition of the truth. I will listen.
Do you not aspire all of my essence in which enthralls one and weaves a collage of passions and whimsical tales of wanderlust?
You see…and I whisper this from within so mark my honesty with my life and the life of my unborn.
I like divinely, adore intensely and love immensely.
That’s my hand of truth—in all is bare so I plead in earnest repertoire,
For you to reveal your earthy intentions with me. My affair. My adulation. My love
Confess now, let it generously, and mercifully unfold…
Is it, indeed all a farce, as it was softly, from above, undoubtedly told?
To me. About you.
What is it that you seek?
