Cleveland

Dare to speak her name 
can’t live without her, a man can really go insane 
I wish I was hooked on her like the dope that goes inside my vein
Because she helps me deal with the constant nonsense that haunts my conscience and brain 
But I’m selfish, I mean society taught me that relationships are a migraine 
In the beginning you’re full of feelings then they slowly start to drain 
So u isolate yourself, using this for protection 
But what u don’t notice is that you’re trapping yourself with those feelings u neglected
Saying that u choose to be alone, and how u respect it 
And now you’re sick but keep thinking it’s gotta be something u ingested
Seems like those feelings u rejected
Matured and now you’re infected 
Just like freedom, its something everyone should be blessed with
I mean it’s sleep to the restless 
Air to breathe…

Guest Post: RealTalented

The Hip Hop Hip

Today’s post is a little different. I asked one of my followers, realtalented to guest post for me. I thought with his unique style of expressing himself, it would be really cool if he could whip up a little somethin’ about fashion for my blog. So here it is, hope you enjoy it…

If u asking about fashion

I’m only grasping it

But laughing

Because I don’t know what happened

Skinny jeans tighter than the tights u wrestle in

Then have the audacity to sag them, damn

It’s embarrassing

But to each his own

I don’t mean to preach but I’m grown

Grown man that’s my tone

Style I wear it like it’s my cologne

Will I conform, probably won’t

Because originality is my home

If I had to choose my fashion will be tattoos

I know people like is that really what u would say if they…

Random Thoughts

Here I am hopeless

open like the ocean, as I stand floating

emotions flowing 

I guess I’m just going through the motions 

the chosen one, I wear it on my skin like lotion

I already won

even with all this guilt that’s weighing a ton on my shoulders

no pennies for my thoughts

no need for loafers 

I’m hopeful that I can stay open

because my past held me back so I had to “off it”

no need for closure 

as my heart freezes, my headlines get colder 

that’s a hundred rhymes 

for one hundred minds 

a hundred times 

and if only one walk away blind, then that’s just fine 

because I’m trying to buy a future, I need someone to co-sign

no I’m just playing, my present is divine

I’m fresh by design 

I hope u get in tune or in line 

if not I’ll leave u behind 

too bad I can’t just flash toward the finish line 

then again I probably wouldn’t fast forward because I rather rewind 

that’s why I do these random thoughts, to remind u that my work is well overdue 

Random Thoughts

As she screams I tell her to say my name, she yelled “oh Jesus” 

I said, “stop playing u know my name Cleveland 

as I continue to beat her, passionately 

I dont mistreat her 

my third arm extended like I was trying to reach her 

she gave me head knowledge, but I was her teacher 

plus she was willing to stay after class, she was a keeper 

when I touch that spot she start shaking like a seizure 

so I tease her 

then try to ease her at my leisure 

I tell her I just want to freak her 

caked up like I need a baker 

a woman that can be professional and clean but when she in bed she scream like Anita Baker 

but she was neither all three so I chose to leave her

now all I do is write when I left 

jotting down these naughty lyrics hoping women will undress 

sorry if this was too much to ingest 

but it was just a test

apparently my thoughts had me under arrest
