(Rated Rg2: Mature Women Only)
“I’m Homeless . . . Come, Lady”
What brings you here tonight, woman . . .
Did I not tell you to keep your distance awhile?
That furious wildfire, it showed me no mercy
I lost it all . . . but the contents of a metal file
My parents’ wedding photos, insurance papers
Stock certificates gifted from my grandfather,
My first love letter to you—the unsent draft
And you show tonight unannounced—why bother?
Isn’t it just like a special woman to care
Is it safe to assume you truly care about me?
You hardly know me, girl, yet here you are
My misfortune, it leaves little for you to see
I’m roofless; the ivory walls they no longer stand
The mahogany desk on which I’d romantically pen?
Parched to ashes, remainings of only black sand
No pieces to pick up, but I, I had to begin
Somewhere, somehow, this inner rebuild took hold
I re-imagined your silhouette that very first time,
My doorway you entered both curious and leery
But I was your reason and you were my rhyme
I’m homeless, woman; dispossessed and displaced
The most precarious position I’ve ever found myself,
Scorched earth, wind, fire, my life tilts off-balance
Only one book remains on my now-singed shelf:
The Old Testament reminds me of my fortitude
The fire that my people have come through,
Your belief system, it includes a faith in me
Your abiding love the well from which I drew
Rebuilding am I, woman, a work in progress
The foundation’s been re-laid, it’s stronger now,
A few furniture pieces handpicked with you in mind
A one-eye burner is all I have to make us chow
I’m house-less, lady, it’s rough but I’m resilient
I’m putting it together one cinderblock per tear,
That wildfire had malicious intentions, sure enough
My love for you, however, surpasses my fear
Will you come to my roofless, wall-less, door-less…
To my windowless home? Come make it okay,
I’m rebuilding for the love I see in your eyes
Let me show you that fire lost on Pamper-Her-Friday.
I need you tonight, woman.
Pamper the woman . . . for she may be the loyal type. -Rg2
