i used to be so open
for years i was so open
(when i availed myself to be)
and he always managed to
manipulate me perfectly
so as to say he wasn't
aware of my vulnerability
all the while using it...
and sometimes i would leave
the door cracked and would
call to him through it
at times of my grieving
and he would always come
probably because i'm beautiful
and young and my sunshine
is so sweet and good...
then i grew up
got hip to our reality
and would never put
my good thang in jeopardy
because i love myself
and i love my husband
so that cracked door is
closed and locked...
i never have to see or
speak to him again
there's no real reason to
besides
all he knows how to do is
blow on a bruise
he could never fix my pain
and now i know
which leads us to
the
end.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
