Wife...Woman...Friend...

This poem spoke to me on so many levels...ladies, this ones for you.

WIFE WOMAN FRIEND
~By Dana Gilmore ~Def Poetry Jam

I guess I should not be surprised that my beginning was his end
After all, we were just friends
Although in my world I was his girl
So in my mind I pretended to be his wife
Saying sh*t like, "there's only so many years in a woman's life"
Right, so I gave him three

Yet he had the audacity to step to me on this
Donnell Jones "I don't know where I wanna be" type sh*t
I wasn't supposed to be like this
He hit me with the forehead kiss
He told me life was a journey and he was ready to explore this sh*t
And I was pissed

I start pullin' out Tupac hits telling me to keep my head up and

R.Kelly picks about when a woman's fed up
Cause I was down with him for so long, that I didn't think I could get up
Till one day I got tired of sleeping on pillows my tears had wet up
and Realized that life goes on
And no he didn't choose me and that doesn't make him right nor wrong
And just because he was the epitome of my life that doesn't make me wrong nor right

Like I said I was his friend and not his wife
And I should've acted within that capacity
And then this breakup would've been "just one of them things"
And not a f**king tragedy

And all the time I spent mad at him I should've been mad at me
After all I was the one that gave him the key to my house
Let him hang clothes in my closet just in case we go out
Washing all his dirty clothes to make a "full load"
And let him finish all the leftovers just so the food don't go old
For the times that we raw-dogged just cause he "lost all the rubbers"
And though I showed him more support than his father, brother, sister, and mother

And just 'cause those same people dial my number when they're trying to stay in touch

And he received mail at my address "cause he sleeps here so much"
Got total control of the remote control to the TV, DVD, and radio
And even though his name is not on my lease got sh*t in my house that is off limits to me Like his side of my bed and his stash of weed
And I better not touch his shoebox, Fruit Loops, mouthwash or toothbrush
He even had his own set of towels

But none of this obligates him to me because not once did we exchange vows
And If I knew then, what I know now, I probably would've listened
When he said it was some sh*t that he needed to get out his system
But I was too busy b*tchin', jumpin' bad like I was gonna hit him
And in the back of my mind all I could fathom was how much I was gonna miss him

And just because I'm cryin' don't mean I'm the victim
It's just that I was too scared to let him go 'cause some other chick might get him
And that was my fault, it was my decision
I should've never put my heart in my mind's position
But I couldn't shake him--he was like a bad habit

And all this for a n*gga that was just average, doing average n*gga sh*t
Like talking out the side of his neck and thinking with his d*ck
But, I must admit he's the one I wanted to commit to
Either I wasn't living up to my potential, or I was just the average chick

But I chose to believe that I was a woman caught up in a feeling
Both physical and emotional, who was way too willing to give her all to a man
And though it may sound stupid I would do it all again
Just next time for my husband and not a n*gga I call my friend.

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so horny...it hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came here...to you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Are Women Whores for Money?

I have been thinking about this topic for a minute and I plan to discuss it at length soon, but for right now, I just have one question, or rather an observation.

Is it me or are women whores for money? Are women whores for a certain lifestyle to the point that they sell their souls to live the good life? They don't care if their man is phucking half of the nation so long as he brings the bacon home to them. They don't care if he looks like the broad side of a bus or the bottom of a shoe, so long as his dollars are long and his pockets are deep. I've heard women say, {self included} that so long as he was making money that he could do any damn thing he wanted...but that is a hypothetical situation. In real life, having dated men with money, I realized one thing - they are the most arrogant assholes around! So I had to say to myself what was more important, that man, that man and his money, that man his money and his lifestyle I was enthralled by, or my self respect. Guess w…

Women Are Emotionally Retarded

The topic on women not listening sparked a madddd debate between a friend and I.

I am of the belief that if a woman is interested in a man and that man she is interested in or in lust with doesn't reciprocate her feelings she should move on. She should remove herself from this man and also ensure that he is no longer in her immediate inner circle/core of friends, but rather on the outer fringes of her life. I was told that by my saying this, then I believe that women are emotionally unable to handle rejection and therefore must cast their net out to others hoping that someone else will bite. Rather we (women) should keep this man around as a friend and not involve ourselves with other men, just because the man that the woman is interested in is not interested in her. He went on to liken it to a woman shooting buckshots until she shoots and catches someone.

I went on to state that if women find themselves in this emotional quagmire of a situation with a man whose feelings aren't …
