U Inspire Me

 

If I wrote a song, it would have the most beautiful melody

If I wrote a poem, it would be a magnificent rhapsody

U inspire me

 

If I would express in dance, my movements would be fluent & serene

If I would convey in art, the brush stroke would be strong & pristine

U inspire me

 

If I could turn inspiration u give into a vision, it would be a elegant sunset

If I could turn inspiration u give into a touch, it would be a kiss on a lover’s neck

U inspire me

 

If I was able to express the sorrow you bring, it would be a Greek tragedy

If I was able to express the joy you bring, it would the most intense ecstasy

U inspire me

 

If I had one wish, the inspiration you impart will be shared and never cease

If I had another wish, the inspiration we share will bring us some peace

because U inspire me

Does it really bother you when I speak of G-d’s grace?

Are you more worthy than I, has He shown you His face?

Maybe you think your more blessed than me

You’re a saint? Well, Isn’t that epiphany of hypocrisy?

So you judge my heart and seen I don’t deserve G-d’s mercy

You tell everyone to look at me, if she’s blessed she’d act accordingly

Well, I don’t judge your loyalty, My savior doesn’t only love me

He loves us all, My savior is not of discernability,

He even loves you and all your absurdity

I am blessed abundantly and no not all my acts are of obscurity

For some strange reason, My savior continues to protect me

Even in my rebellious, stubborn, and even mean impurities

So don’t send me no message on how to be until you act accordingly.

Meet me half way

Where paradise exist

But I can’t see you over the horizon

So, I do insist ……

 

Meet me half way

Where life together originates

Where destiny meets it’s fate

Waiting for a response to what I’ve initiate

So, don’t hesitate….

 

Meet me half way

I know it’s a big request

But it’s no bigger than what I’ll invest

So you can sit for a second to assess

But ,don’t digress….

 

Meet me halfway

Don’t make me carry all the weight

G-d didn’t make me to have such a fate

Get up & come close before it’s too late

Just meet me halfway…..

Laid to rest, deck out in my Sunday’s best

I better not spot you in the pews, making a big to do

You hurt me while I was here, don’t you f*&king shed a tear

Be proud no regret what you’ve done and what I’ve become

I’ll be waiting for you in Hell,

                     cause I cussed your presence as my final farewell

                                           Hoping that a million, no billion maggots

                                                        Eat your eyes that cry, you f&*king faggot

Making it’s way to your brain until you collapse and died

               Then consume the flesh that covered the evil that tried to hide

Itself as a person to love

Alone is where I am, Alone is where I will be

Doesn’t seem like a choice, it’s more a decree

Just can’t settle for less, my love is bourgeoisie

Even greater than that as a matter of fact

But feeling this way leave such a profound impact

Alone, lonely even at times, feeling my worth is sublime

Daddy raised me to feel this way and it’s what good daddy’s do  

But why didn’t he tell me that my counterpart would not have a clue

That there’s a crystalline jewel where my thighs combine

 A intellect that is not of typical principles, a grace and beauty so divine

 So to settle is not a task I can do, as superior as I believe my spirit is

That’s one area I can’t transcend

Wrapping my mind around being treated less than a delicate rose

The notion that I’m worth less than a fine gem stone

Makes this quest for love seems perpetual and drone

I even tried hard to take the lost, but at what cost? My self image?

Why would he want me not have the aurora I envisioned?

Would you want to be with someone who thinks less?

Will it make your own self-image become distressed?

My hips are not the roundest, my lips not the fullest

Might not be super model fine, but I must persist

That I am worth every moment of your time, every touch of your kiss

Every single open door, to even checking for cracks in the floors

And yes I think I’m the cat’s meow why wouldn’t that make you proud?

Because I will not be with someone I feel deserve less than all the love I posses

My measure is no different from yours; we both deserve utter happiness

But don’t give me nothing you wouldn’t accept, Because alone is where I am

Alone is where I’ll be,  I wont settle for less

Not even for wretched loneliness….

Last night, I had a party

A party for one, to wallow in sorrow, felt like I was coming U n do n e

I had a party, no grooming required, hair a mess and prom dress from ‘91

No longer can I fasten the back and so what if you see my bra straps

It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, throwing tantrums and showing no tact

Carnation on my wrist, chiffon ruffles with dyed pay less shoes to match the lilac

I decorated my place just how I felt, everything in pitch black

Black Balloons and Black streamers with huge banner, “What a fool am I!!?

Sit here and live at this party, not out there in a world in which I can’t rely

I only need one martini glass, the olives as my appetizers, the ice my dessert

Main course the dirtier the better, before I eat praying “G-d, help me too so I

could forgive our debtors”

However not today, I’m scared, bitter, miserable, sad, hopeless, and mad

No DJ, so I just let Billie play, looping the blues, drinking my booze

At times, singing loudly on how he loved me and left me feeling soo lousy

Mascara running, lipstick smeared, what a sight to see

But you won’t see me, this party is catered, hosted, the person of honor is me

Let me cry, scream, sing, curse out loud, because tomorrow I’ve vowed to walk proud

Last night, I had a party

At a young age, I was drawn to her voice

Didn’t seem like I had a choice

A kindred spirit, descendants of grief

All those songs, she sang just for our relief

Voice not quite on pitch, timing not always on beat

But with every word I experience a safe retreat

She helps me cry when I can’t quite feel

She doesn’t judge the way I choose to deal

As a youth, didn’t know the story of Lady Day

Only knew, to gloom ,she fell prey

With age, I discover that her life was full of discord

No wonder our spirits are on one accord

She told me when I love, do it “All the Way”

No longer estrange when I feel lonely on “A Foggy Day”

“Strange Fruit”, a vivid example of what our ancestors’ endured

And we feel the same about love, “Everything I Have is Yours”

Wow, “Good Morning Heartache” and “Stormy Blues”

To know someone else has abuse as their muse

And who wouldn’t want to see “April in Paris”

“Comes Love” might as well live life and be careless

Billie blows me away, from her individuality to her eyes a gazed

Can’t help but want to heed more from this Lady Demure

Hear the voice start to slur from pessimism’s connoisseur
