~What you won't do, You'll do for love~

Updated on October 3, 2017

~Prologue~

We are on the outside looking in, so we see all his faults, but the person on the inside is sometimes love blind...

~Blinded by Love~

I know, you love that man, you'll stick by him through thick and thin, set aside your own demands to pick up after that man,

wash his dirty draws with dried up booty stains, clean his toilet after a hard long strain and reassure yourself he'd do the same.

What you won't do, You'll do for love!

Cuddling up with him like a football team, even after his silent bomb invades your mental stream, the smell nearly brought you to your feet, but love kept you in your seat.

Prepared a full course meal for your king, yet on your special day you didn't get a thing.

Years of loving him should have at least brought you a ring, five kid's later thats still a distant dream.

What you won't do, You'll do for love!

Late night rendezvous, phone calls on his cell, whispering as if you aren't sitting there, worst of all now you feel played while this suck'a is out getting laye'd.

Reminiscing while doing the dishes, of all the celebrations in life you were missing, yet somehow the thought of him softened you, brought back emotions you thought were subdued.

Long before you met this creature and lost your virginity, long before he rocked your world pushing and begging up on a girl, long before the fights, kids, when he was hittin it like an ocean squid,

your history flash right before your eyes and in that moment you realized, how much you changed from how you use to be and in that moment you longed to be free, claim back some of your dignity.

Then a gentle voice broke your trance bringing you full throttle to your circumstance, that gentle giant leaned over you and whispered sweet nothings in your ear like he always do, and in that moment of affection you lost complete concentration.

What you won't do, you'll do for love

      I am there. I need to learn how to communicate to the man in my life, he is good to our daughters and myself, he is not abusive, He is however, a few years my senior and he shows it. I have on several occassions requested that he not speak to me in certain tones, and he doesn't get it. Now I wonder is it the bass in his voice, because someone else has stated how he speaks to people it can be intimidating. Now dont get me wrong I "get with him", but I want to learn how to speak to him and listen to him rather than "get wit him".

      THANK YOU! I APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO READ MY POETRY. THOUGH I REFUSE TO TAKE THE BACK SEAT TO ANY MAN & HIS EMOTIONAL OUT BURST OR HIS KID'S, IF HE HAD ANY, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SAYING. BEFORE I WAS MARRIED, I MET A FEW MEN WITH KID'S, I DECIDED THAT WASN'T FOR ME BUT, THERE ARE SO MANY WHO DO TAKE THAT CHALLENGE. I DON'T BELIEVE I COULD EVER BE A DOOR MAT, I'M AT TIMES TO AGGRESSIVELY OUT SPOKEN & I HAVE NEVER BEEN AFRAID OF CRITICISM OR CORRECTIVE CRITICISM. PERSONALLY, I HAVE BEEN THE BACK BONE FOR MANY VICTIMS WHO HAVE SUFFERED THROUGH SOME OF THIS KIND OF ANXIETY. BUT, THANKS ANYWAY FOR YOUR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, I APPRECIATE IT...LOL, AKA LOLLIPOP!

      It is true, sometimes we lose the essence of who we are, what we wanted out of life, and how we expected to be treated FOR LOVE....and we take the backseat by trying to make our MAN happy and take care of the kids. Being someones doormat is no way to be. Take it from me, I have been there....and until you truly stand up to that person and tell them WHAT YOU WANT and that if they aren't willing to be the one to give it, then kick rocks. Sometimes they will surprise you...its like the way it is teaching kids. They try to get away with all they can until the parent steps in and stops them. Don't let him get away with crap.....and he may just shock you IF he realizes what he has right before his eyes...and if he is too blind then I am sure there is another MAN out there that will appreciate you! Take care girl!
