POSERS

HELLO EVERYONE. I THOUGHT TO SHARE THIS PIECE WHICH I KEPT SOME YEARS AGO. THIS WRITING IS CULLED FROM ‘TRUTH BY RUTH’, A COLUMN, GLITTERATI OF THIS DAY NEWSPAPER OF SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 2004. I CAPTIONED IT POSERS BECAUSE OF THE QUESTIONS THEREIN. I ALSO ADDED A FEW LINES TO IT. PLEASE ENJOY IT AND DROP YOUR COMMENTS.

Whispering her the questions… *winkssss*

Can I fulfill your needs and be the man you need me to be?

Sister, are you prepared for what you have asked for?

Can you handle the responsibility?

Can you accept that, by God, I am the chosen one, the authority, the comforter and the head?

Will you submit and willingly follow my path?

Or will you fight me instead?

 

If I am your King, will you treat me as such?

Will I get the best of your beauty and poise?

Or will I be subjected to an appearance neglected and checked with noise?

Image

Every King deserves a Queen who treats him right…

 

When I talk, will you listen?

I mean wholeheartedly and feel me?

Or will you rush me to make your point too?

Can I be the man at all times?

Even when it hurts?

Or is it just when it’s convenient for you?

Can you love me for me?

 If I don’t send you flowers the day your co-worker received some

Will you know that I love you still?

Or will my good name be uttered along with other doggish brothers?

Will you question if my commitment is real?

Will you be patient and teach me to understand you, and allow my knowledge of your needs to grow?

Or will you shut me out when I ask “Baby what’s wrong?”

Or will you respond with a “well a real man would know!”

 

When we first met, what was it that caught your eye?

Was it my mind, my heart or my personality? Or was it my suit or my job?

Or do you love what I drive, instead of what’s driving me?

Yes I can, and I will make love to you from midnight to the sun’s dawn

But, if I tell you I’m tired, will you trust I’m sincere or believe that there must be another one?

My sister, I love you and my heart can be yours. No woman could lead me astray.

But like youI have needs

So I beg of you, please

In this love thing, meet me half way

In life’s tough times, I’ll hold you; In the rough times, I’ll hold you

Your simplest wish will be my command

My life is yours if need be; Yes you can fully bleed me

And when hell comes; in your place I’ll stand

Image

The beauty of a good relationship is the effort of two…him and her

good relationship is a powerful institution that must be built on a foundation of two

Do you say yes to my posers? To yours, I say yes sweetheart

I do qualify; But more importantly…Do you qualifyDo you?
