Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

For the women in Blog world who lack appreciation from their men, i'm sure you'll relate to these two poems below. Have you ever felt that all he does is throw you crumbs here and there and you're left hungry for more of his attention?

Many swallow whatever crumb is thrown their way out of desperation, not realizing their self-worth. In society we put up with a lot of crumbs so why should we settle with excuses and drama at home?

Aminah Love and I came up with the idea of writing a poem on the topic of "Crumbs". If you'd like to write your own piece and share with us, feel free to do so.


He calls
I jump
Let’s meet
It’s been a minute
I hurry
Get dressed
He's waiting
We see
We kiss
Have dinner
Make love
A moment is shared
Always busy
Never has time
Throws me a crumb
Dares to say he's mine.

To be used
When he’s horny
Is this fulfilling
The crumbs that are thrown
Is not what I want
I am but one
Of those
That he uses
When he's on the spot

Do I accept his offer
When it's thrown
Or do I walk away
And leave him the
Hell alone?

Crumbs are for those
You have no emotion for
or are not attached,
I am much more than that.

A full meal is what I crave
Not starvation that fills me
With loathe & decay
Of an individual that cannot
Fulfill my needs
For he has only crumbs
To feed.

Drip are his excuses
Short notice on cell phone
With a red tag for disaster
His lust makes you his Tylenol PM alleviates achy joints
Crosses toes
Firm up muscles
You even suck your thumb after the explicit melt-down
With ice between the legs
There is only one in your universe
He accentuates your sweet tooth
Penetrates your ocean like a whale in search of his chicken of the sea
Hold up
There is silence again
Day 3
No phone call
Emails are scarce
Your stomach growls
Day 5
You’re hungry
He throws you a text message
I think I’m in love
You laugh at the gesture
It’s a joke how he does it flawlessly
An amateur
Your piece of ass who swears he wants to be your one and only
He’ll rock your world when his midnight shift ends
First he needs a shave
A shower
Needs to call his mama
Pay the bills
Nothing is guaranteed without another kiss
Without another Red Bull grind
Without elevation
Your recreation
Day 8
Your battery is low
He hasn’t scored since the last date
What’s up boo?
Phone sex not an ultimatum
Give me a better story
Tell me your dog ate my number
Or you were running late for work
Better yet you couldn’t Tivo our last madness in the car seat
Tick is the unseen clock
Imagine your cock as the main entrance to my twin towers
How quickly it crumbles
And waiting
for you

Cathy...Amazing. I was directed to visit your blog by a couple people, Ty and Fuzzy namely, and I'm certainly glad I did. I love your pieces, this one especially. I think we've all been fed crumbs throughout our journey to find love, male and female alike. Call us Hansel and Gretel, but I finally got a dustbuster and now I'm only having full course meals. There's nothing like being full.

Wanted: search for this man photographed sexually abusing children
INTERPOL is seeking the help of the public to try to identify this man, photographed sexually abusing children in a series of images posted on the Internet.
The photos shown here are from a series of around 200 pictures involving 12 different young boys, believed to have been taken in Vietnam and Cambodia in 2002 or 2003.
These pictures have been produced by specialists from Germany’s federal police force, the Bundeskriminalamt, working from originals found on the Internet, which had been digitally altered to disguise the man’s face.
Extensive police efforts worldwide to identify the man have so far failed and Interpol is now enlisting the support of the media and the public to help identify him as a priority.
Anyone with information on his identity or whereabouts should contact their local police or INTERPOL’s Trafficking in Human Beings Unit via email.


Girl we rocked those words!!! I know that many ladies feel this way. I can also say that you have your share of brothas who are thrown crumbs.

It is our responsibility to ourselves to only accept a full course meal. Not settle for the crumbs that are left behind for us to pick up. As I said in my poem, we are worth more than that.

Let the crumbs be picked up by the birds, and any other creature. BUT NOT FROM US!

sorry, first post was wrong, got confused with another blog gals shuld take it easy on bashing them brodas, eh!

Lyrically speaking said...

Chameleon: Thanks for visiting my world, yours is as beautiful, and your comment was informative

David: Thanks, I'll have to check your blog to read more about this

Aminah: Now you know, lol, no settling allowed :)

Ugo: Bashing? Naw, we're not bashing, we're just expressing ourselves. That's what poetry is all about, self-expression of the mind. Also, we're letting women out there know it's ok not to settle for need to put up and it's not just for the ladies, I believe it's vice versa. Aminah and I are just speaking from our own point of view

" then they want to do right..but why not just do right in the first place??? as a matter of fact I'm on a liquid diet now...

Which is why women need to know they are goddesses! Thank you, Cathy for emphasizing this. It's not about being stiff or prissy or spoiled, it's about honor. And it goes both ways.
