Just Another Brother? ©
Am I a brother stopping by to get a peak
Trying to discover is she for real, a showgirl, or a freak?
Can I get her to notice me, smile at me, set me free from my internal bondage?
This sickness called low self-esteem that makes me fearful of her being
Wanting to touch her, make her mine for just a moment, get the feeling so sublime
That smile that holds such appeal
What is really beneath the surface; is she the real deal?
Talk to her, vibe with her, tell her all my secret fantasies
Flatter her with sweet nothings oozing from my lips hoping to get her to notice me;
Her rhythm, her song is the sweetest melody.
The words that drip from her lips sends me high, sweet ecstasy.
Can’t believe she noticed me, chose to dialog with me
The chase paid off; this moment is priceless
Not only is she a sight to see, she is full of substance;
With knowledge beyond my wildest fantasy.
But wait, her song, her melody is too deep for me
I can’t understand the harmony of her words; her dialog is complex;
Her meaning is too much for my shallow mind; leaves it perplexed.
I thought I wanted a woman like this-- sweet, sensual, and intelligent too,
But now I see that what I wanted was merely a dream.
I can’t cope with a woman so real, so true
Politely back away, I chase a girl on my level, playing games, speaking dribble.
That woman whose song so sweet, I’ll leave her there and
Every now and then take a peak
At her smooth brown skin and lovely smile
Go away, play, come back in a little while
When, after I have been played, hurt, and misused,
To this real woman with the song that elevates me to sweet ecstasy.
Too late; I find this maestro of a woman whose complex words and harmony baffled my mind is gone
Safe in the arms of a man who could rejoice in the song
She sang. Who’d love the intricate words and harmony
That streams so sweetly from her lips.
To the arms of a real man, secure in his being
Willing to take the risk of being loved,
Encompassed about this woman so engaging.
Am I Just Another Brother?
