Anaphora: She walked up to me and smiled dropping me off mid stream of thought you see, she'd often seemed lost in dreams Then she talked to me, nothing sentimental just a pencil But it meant so much more from her tone so gentle So I lent flow to the beat so subtle and incomplete until my speech touched base as face and track meet If you asked me if I saw one shine bright in nowhere I'd say go talk to Common, because he used to know her And I know there's those who think the metaphor's played But it's played in my head for more than 8 years and a day It's saved my life, when gracing mics I feel complacent, like Back in the days when I had a family that was whole But then calamity took hold and landed me that role Of the provider before I'd learned all my trigonometry Had to work to have laundry, supportin both my mom and me So time it seemed divided these two finally, life and dreams Until the day hip hop walked up, and she smiled at me... Numskull: She walked up to me, and told me she hated me Blatantly, facing me saying she never shoulda dated me Told me stay away or she will call the police Like I'ma beast, an animal... sick of all the grief I reach out to her, she turned her back, walked away Came back assaulted me, trynna get her off of me Throwing fits, tears trickle from the sides of my face The size of her hate shows all the times we'd wake the disgust in her eyes, it paints a picture so vivid Don't think it's just for a scripture, I've lived it It isn't the ticket, I bought for this train ride I can't slide off the earth, the hurt remains, why? Must she do this to me, is it a test of love I've taken the best of slugs, the strength is just enough In my chest to shrug and act like it doesn't bother me I'm starving see, love nourishes and keeps me from poverty I'll probably be shocked one day, while faces are ugly When we fight, she'll walk away... saying ...SHE LOVED ME Cereal Killer: She walked up to me, with a baggy of weed, This supreme quality green-tea with no seeds. We breathe up the lust, through this G sack of dust As we steam up enough love, to make A-Sexual’s fuck. This complex visual stunt, swallows and sucks Us right through a pipe bomb like explosive rush. BOOM our heads butt, touching our hearts to our minds. Exhaling time, with con-fused eyes till we’re blind. I bite on her lip, sipping her moisture Tipping her torso while gripping my mortar, Drinking the coarse shot of love that comes off her ‘Til I start thinking we’re sinking in the sofa. Closer and closer our closure’s brought to an end People think we’re caught up, but we’re just fuck friends On the weekends or odd special occasions Can’t wait till the next official arrangement I need to get HIGH! Omen: She walked up to me, spoke... "Maybe I'm getting too big, growing too old for lullabies, Tonight I'll miss your arms, ...when I feel your tears within my eyes Tell me how to keep years from racing, never catch these memories When my world gets cold, reach for them, be caught in my reveries Never thought we'd come so far, never thought it'd be so hard Tonight I step on a new road, heart new, but ever scarred Wonder if I'm too old for lullabies, remember dancing in arms Give the world for one more spin, protected from all that harms Know you're forever near me, you've told me only to call You're still close to kiss my tears, ...chase the shadows from my walls Want to be carried one more time, atop your shoulders, atop my world Never be ready to let go, can always stay your little girl Maybe I'm too big for lullabies, but daddy, I'll sing one tonight In honor of our 18 crazy years, because we both'll be alright" ...and I cried Trap: she walked up to me, in the past i was appeased by her thighs, but now, im sick of the lies, the feeble alibis, the replies, i dispise your existance, the instance did arise, stabbed me in the back w/ sinister tact, matter-of-fact, your mere presence, resonates off what others lacked, the keen intuition i was missing, wishin i woulda listened, to the description of this vixen, before i dipped my dick-in, beautiful baby blue eyes, ignited many hearts of men, but within that smile + grin, you got underneath my skin, never again ... i'll pretend your grace, i mistook for the chase, replaced that w/ contempt and placed you far from my face, touched my many senses, leaving me senseless ... ... relentless ... ... how you travelled in seconds, stealing hope for repentance, your pale-white complexion beckoned my very essence, even this sentence sums up the answers to your questions, i need you but believe you when you call my presence, never hesitant to smell out the scents you've presented, that jezebel of powder, devouring everything you import, im a junkie for your heart and soul ... my last resort, in my dreams at night, and still remain in my head, i mean my nose, instead, addiction of a basehead ... L-Dogg: she walked up to me with a look you only see on the lost tugging my arm i walked to see what she saw she was brave, her limp bruised my mind confused as to why she didnt choose to cry we arrived, and i smelled the smoke then heard a yell, followed by a trail of chokes i aproached the bodies in a race with life the flames were bright there was no place to hide i tried my best to pull them out, but the seatbelts held them down the screams found room to drown the dreams would haunt her frowns as this little girl watched it slip away no longer a parent to sit and play so her life was spent to sit and wait until her soul would rest once again with her family she lost when she was ten.
