3 AM...

So I wrote this little diddy back in 2005. I dont think I can really call it a poem. It doesnt really have a rhythm to it. It's more like a blog before I started blogging; but anyway, I came across it when I was flipping threw my poetry book. I have been seriously trying to get a manuscript lately for the book so I have had to go in the old crates and read some things I havent crossed in a while. So here goes... tell me if you feel me!


3AM


The time I'm leaving the club, a little sweaty, a little tipsy.

The time my jump-off calls to tell me he's on the way.

The time the guy who really likes me calls saying, "I just wanted to hear your voice." But in actuality, he just wants to see if I'll answer. 'Cause if I dont, he assumes I'm with another guy. But little does he know I always answer my phone, guy there or not, HE AIN'T MY MAN!

The time I finally tell my girls to leave after a ladies night in, full of buttered popcorn, bashing men, and then falling in love with Larenz Tate after watching Love Jones.

The time I'm getting up from the table after bussing my boyz in spades. The time they get up from the table to watch BET uncut.

The time I'm in the deepest sleep. Body finally tranquil and resting from the previous 3AM nights.

What are you doing at 3AM?

3 AM - I'm riding around trying to get sleepy or reading a blog or something. Sorry, I have a boring life. Nothing exciting happening at 3 AM for me.

Men are so funny...as if we don't realize what they're doing.

Damn, I miss Bet Uncut! lol J/k

At three am if I'm not drunk, I'm prolly waking up for the first time. I wake up a couple of times in the night. I might wanna get checked for that

Used to be on the phone or asleep still holding the phone.

Then moved on to those 3 A.M. taps on the shoulder that meant for me to roll over (LOL)


Now I sometimes wake at 3 A.M. for various unknown reasons

I do the strangest things at 3am. Heh!

Most recently, last Sunday, I was at the local Dennys with this incredible guy. I didn't want the night to end.
