My Mind

pimp myspace


This nigga is trying to get in my mind
Yeah I love him, and he has a place in my heart
But he's a fool if he thinks he's the only one I'm thinking about
- I doubt.
I'm the only one running threw his mind
They call and come by; but he wants me to act blind
Act like I don't see and stay in "a woman's place"
If only he could be honest; constant deceit on his face
Tells me not what I want, but what he thinks I should know
Everything else he does he tries to keep on the low
What I don't know now I'll soon find out
But he acts like he don't know what I'm talking about
Constantly telling me I'm the only one in his life
Everyday he says "I love you" yet bringing so much strife
Sometimes I just let it go and act all nice and kind
And that makes this nigga has my mind
Little does he know, I'm out doing my thing
Mad numbers home, I always bring
Mad niggaz want a chance but I keep 'em on a limb
Trying to hold my composure, 'cause I'm waiting for him
But no more of my life starts and stops with him
The fire burnin' from our love is close to dim
But I ain't gonna lie, the nigga could have my mind
The pathway to my heart, he first must find
He got a piece of it now and don't know how to treat it
We ain't even talking and I still let him beat it
Time to stop all that; he thinks he has the upper hand
Time to stop being a boy, take on responsibilities like a man
Chilling every once in a while, he thinks is buying him time
But he's really giving another guy the chance to be mine
Re-establish yourself before you fall too far behind
Try to get in my heart, because your far from my mind

One Man’s Opinion January 22, 2008 at 10:12 PM

Very powerful...I know alot of women who are right there. I think it is sad actually. They tell theirselves that they are playing the same game he is playing, but when i reality they are just hurting themselves by playing a game that they are not up to playing.
Well, that's my opinion anyway. Like I said...I know some women who this poem fits to a "t", except I think they are only fooling themselves.

@one man - yeah that was me back in 2001, i knew i wanted to be with him and only him but when he pulled back i lashed out by doing the same thing thinking that would make him want to be with me if he saw that others wanted me... didnt work now... I'm so wiser now that I know there is nothing u can do to make a man be with you.

@Don - you stupid.. I thought you had gotten over that whole Keyshia cole thing... I guess not... and stop worrying about who I let hit it...

@ICC - thanks!

@OP-DIVA - Daaannngg you nosey...LOL; nah but we played 2 can play that game for a while. I wasnt really stressing it because I wasnt looking for a boyfriend I just wanted him to be real with me on the ish he was doing. He was making it seem like he loved me and I was the only one when I knew he was messing with other chicks. I eventually stopped dealing with him just because he lied instead of just telling. He so stupid because I was doing my thang too, just was testing him to see if he could be real. You can only have a casual situation like that if you are honest about what it is upfront...

1/3 of what I used to be January 23, 2008 at 12:50 PM

I really like this poem. I think alot of young women go through this...staying with the wrong guy while maybe letting Mr. right pass us by. I definitely can relate. Anyway, good Job:-)

Wow. Why is that what I’m going through right now and wrote about today lol girl nice post, we on the same page…

Mr.Slish January 23, 2008 at 2:18 PM

After all of that I bet you still gave him some..lol

soumynona January 23, 2008 at 4:07 PM

Too deep playa!! (wo)Man I tell ya, relationships are tough and the games we play are even tougher. LOL at Don btw, hmmmm, you can't let us hit it tho. Especially if its some good ish too.

@Slish - No he still gave me some... nah, but I wrote a response above to OP-Diva on what ensued. I did continue to mess with him for a bit...but was never exclusive, then I just got tired of him thinking he could call in the middle of the night and expect me to be at his beck and call and told him it wasnt no more sex in the champagne room for him.

@Soumy - That's why he was lying... men are so territorial... he only kept telling me I was the only one so that I wouldnt mess with the next tom, dick, and harry... which I felt was unbelievably selfish... thats why I kept doing my thang... because I knew what the deal was...and that he was out doing his thang... no matter how much he so-called loved me.

I love this stanza:
Trying to hold my composure, 'cause I'm waiting for him
But no more of my life starts and stops with him
The fire burnin' from our love is close to dim
But I ain't gonna lie, the nigga could have my mind
The pathway to my heart, he first must find


That's real talk lady!

Opinionated Diva January 24, 2008 at 10:19 AM

Thnx for satisfying my CURIOSITY (not noseyness! lol).

"He was making it seem like he loved me and I was the only one when I knew he was messing with other chicks."

That's the crap I really hate...the unnecessary lying!
