Kings & Queens

what surpasses our empathy
is our abundance of chemistry
we’re something like a symphony
subtle but vibrant, you, the queen of the tyrants
make peace with the king of violence
there’s no greater sight than this alliance
but no greater charm than your defiance
a character of fiction too real to redact
how quick I am to attack
how quick you are to react
but at all times, we have each other’s back

we splurge on love
we don’t just raise the bar, we sit above
we indulge in the simple things
our potential can’t be unseen
as we live like Kings and Queens

we don’t pick and choose our battles
we just lay it on the line every chance we get
waiting for the days I best you
but I relish in the days I get the best you
just to see you try and assert your authority
you love nothing more than to be at war with me
our back and forth struggle of who reigns on the throne
with a subtle desire to make each other home
together, we are something to fight for
our alliance ends wars, and once more
we do it by kicking in front doors
bold as our love, we are a force
and everyone else can agree to disagree
that we are a beginning of a legacy

How many looks can I steal
to have your treasure in my court
despite our differences, I know your worth
you challenge and then ignore me
it drives me wild, makes me crazy
still I choose you as my lady
the queen to rule my domain
the one to lift up my name
carry us as I will carry you
love me however you choose

Pretend it’s Nothing

why does it matter so much that you like me
if I shouldn’t care what you think?
concern myself with impressing you
when your presence shouldn’t even make me blink
why do I want you to notice the small details?
and ignore all the ways I could possibly fail?
why does my mind wonder as much as my eyes?
for you, I will tell all the necessary lies
I try to get your attention without whoring for it
I want to hold it, without mention, hoping that I am a fit
I just want to be next to you, don’t know when to quit

our situations make me dead wrong
for wanting what I’ve wanted for so long
lusting for those times we’re touching
we can pretend it’s nothing
but tell me we’re more than just something

I might be a little too honest
but your appeal keeps me astonished
and I just want to return the favor
I want a taste of your worst behavior
no fear of judgement, no rules
tell me what you want to do
all the trivial acts we could pursue
let’s play games that make you scream my name
and pretend that it’s nothing all the same
continue teasing me the way you do
give me endless reasons to lust after you

try to hide the realness of the passion
don’t worry about feelings lasting
there’s no avoiding that rush when we touch
that satisfaction that is always and never enough
a feeling that fades in when we start to fade out
a mix of everything with a little bit of doubt
on those nights it’s me you’re without
you want what it is I want, a way in
somewhere we can begin
now something’s got you thinking
the truth comes out when you’re drinking
and whenever I’m there something feels right
maybe it should be me with who you end your night

Art of Seduction

I come across your path and I lose it
forgot where I was going, I once knew
but is it ok for me to walk with you?
get to know you a little bit
you intrigue me in the strangest of ways
intelligence in the words you say
what’s your name, can I pick your brain?
from this point on, my life will never be the same
I was good on my own, but now I don’t want to be
i want to indulge in your world, if you let me
let’s start from square one
and build something so strong
that when you leave me, it won’t be so easy

I want the real thing, but I’ve heard you sing
the song of a siren luring men in
you don’t know the power you have
with a mind so in touch with the universe
and a charm that couldn’t be rehearsed
a face with a smile so easy on the eyes
and a figure that brings men to life
you don’t even try and its attractive
time with you is an addictive habit
and I can’t help it, but I don’t want to
there’s an art to being seduced by you

seduce me at your will
use me however you will
cause I will let you, if you will
get to know me and you will
run away with me if you will
and use me as you will
seduce me like you know you will

you are something to be experienced
with nothing left to be desired, except desires of more
of you, like I’ve never experienced you before
each interaction feels just like the first time
I can’t escape that feeling or get you off my mind
and I’m not blind to your flaws
the more I get to know you, I just want it all
I want to touch it all, I’m just ready to fall
forget everything else you got going on
Im the only project you should be on
around you I’m probably never thinking straight
but I want you now, so why should we wait
make me the man you make plans with
let me be the last person you quit

A Different Meaning

I used to have a thing for you
but you were never single
never a time where we aligned
that moment for us never existed
so those feelings, we poorly hid it
we had chemistry for a throwaway experiment
never got to test the hypothesis
no results from the things we never did
but the theory still stands

what if I were your man
things would change but be the same
a different meaning when you say my name
every door would be opened
loving words always spoken
I’d hold you instead of resisting
and know the feeling of winning

Just a little crush went a long way
it could be enough for the time of day
if you could notice me the way I notice you
we only live in dreams now
I want it to stop, but don’t know how
you appear and I don’t want you to leave
false memories that I want to believe
that’s the only way to feel close to you
but takes me further away from getting over you
I still can’t figure you out and that’s what draws me in
there was not suppose to be any interest to begin
but our moments alone, and something grew from that
when our eyes met, there was no turning back
even if we didn’t know it at the time
the thought always lived in my mind

being on the outside looking in
I can’t help but envy him
though we would agree it’s for the best
how does one lay thoughts of you to rest
disrupt the calm in my happiness
life feels like a predictable mess
I like the promise of your crazy
together we are a wreck
but we don’t know this yet
we will always go unchecked
all the possibilities undiscovered
we keep missing one another
and it always comes back to this
what if…we had a different meaning

Good Day

you seem happy and that’s a good thing
glad you found someone you can let in
make sure he sees your light
if he can’t see the reasons you glow
then the answer should be no
love where you’re going
appreciate where you’ve been
take a moment, reflect, take joy in reminiscing
it takes a fool not to know your worth
a coward not to ask why you hurt
and the right man to understand
what’s missing from your left hand
so if I were to steal you away
would you really object, what would you say
we can do everything that’s yet to be done
knowing the best is yet to come

when I don’t get to miss you
when I have no reason to stare
when I have no desire to care
then I know that its true
I just want another good day with you

you’ve come such a long way
appearing more beautiful every day
smarter than you know in an abundance of ways
your presence breathes life
and for you, everyone wants to do right
just to see you smile, such a sight
unscripted and without conviction
glimpses of a free spirit seen within
teases a potential that has no end

the way we run each other down
it’s a pleasure to have you around
gratitude rarely acknowledged
but the knowledge is far from rare
engaged in a rivalry with someone so fiery
our theme, good luck surviving me
I can’t stop staring
I can’t stop caring
we create moments I could never rue
your time isn’t something I shouldn’t look forward to
but who doesn’t want another good day with you

Queen City

you want to remain part of the city that made you a woman
a place where I was never a part of your life plan
and you want me to understand
why you love it so much
when I just want to feel my love is enough
I can’t put it into words that make any sense
the future is scary but your past is so tense
and I don’t want to revisit the memories
they are your best friends, making them my enemies
you can’t let go of them the way you once let go of me
so how should I feel when I was never good enough
after all the years I wrongly chased your love

I should get over it
I wasn’t always the perfect fit
you left home to sit on the throne
to reign over the Queen City
and now I’m finally starting to see
that had nothing to do with me

that part of you is over and this is where we begin
but that part of you is still holding on to him
because he was there when you wouldn’t let me in
he did what he needed and took care of you
when you wouldn’t let me be there for you
he took you in and made this your queen city
I can’t compete with a place you find so flawless, so pretty
all the connections I imagined now seem so one sided
I just wanted believe it was there and you had to hide it
but my words constantly fell on deaf ears
because I was too bold to acknowledge the reality of my fears
you had moved on living a life without me
I wasn’t living without you, so I resented this city
for taking away the one thing that felt true
for changing and manipulating you
for taking you out of my life, for dimming my light
all the love I fought to earn, you gave it to them without a fight

I feel so much, yet I come of as stoic
I inflict my own pain, and we both know it
the past is the past, time to get over it
I just don’t want to compete in an already decided battle
but that was my choice, I never had to
we made our decisions, that’s just part of living
I can’t let this city be my prison
hold me back, reliving something we never had
It made you the person that you chose to be today
so I shouldn’t really have anything to say
you are here now, I should never lose sight of that
I am a King, ready to take my Queen back

Tale of Two Cities

we had to learn who we are so that we could make it this far
we had to fail over and over again
just so that we could survive as friends
we had to make mistakes and raise the stakes
just so we could separate what’s real from what’s fake
I was always concerned more about impressing than undressing you
you matter more than anything else in this world
because without you I feel without a world
and even with millions of people surrounding me
your absence always left me feeling empty
but you always have a party, have a crew
I never knew how to keep up the way you do
you alone, piece and hold me together
I pray that you continue to do that forever

whenever I sit and think about you
I become blind to anything less beautiful
and everything and everyone disappears
and it’s always you and me my dear
alone and together, a tale of two cities

but am I really enough satisfy your soul
you are forever young as I grow old
your company is not my company to keep
I’m not from the same set, so I can’t be the perfect piece
I’m only reminded of a time in your life where I didn’t exist
when you disappear from me on sporadic weekend trips
I want to have you all to myself
and you share a piece of you with everyone else
sometimes I feel lost in your priorities, even though I’m still one
but then I know that’s selfish of me, I’m headstrong
no matter how much we have going on, nothing is secure
there’s no weight even on things we planned before
something else comes up and you’re ready to ride
and I feel like scraps tossed to the side
but we’ve always been a tale of two cities
two very different personalities
what offends me doesn’t offend you
and there’s different meaning in the same things we pursue
yet we are so perfect, me and you
and we’re going to do what we do
we never rest knowing the other is hurt
and we always figure it out and make things work

Cocaine Sadness

I know i’m not good enough
I can tell from your lack of touch
you don’t have to continue the lies
I can see it in your eyes
with me you seem so unsatisfied
and after so much rejection, a part of me died
I’ve lost my drive to really try
and its not a secret why
my touch doesn’t faze you
you don’t budge at my expressions of love
affection is a foreign concept in our relationship
I still love you, but I’m beginning to hate it
I still love you, but how long can I take it

you’re my drug, without you I’m going through withdrawal
you were my rise but I’m beginning to fall
my high is gone and I need another fix
but I’m not your number one interest
I’m not enough even when I thought I was
try to dilute my dependency, this habit
but then I fall into a cocaine sadness

I’m begging for your touch, but still nothing
you say you like it rough, isn’t that something
cause no matter what I do, the results are the same
we talk it through, but i learn not to expect any change
I try to be your man, but I feel like I’m constantly failing
do you see the damage from all the rejection I’ve taken
I’m not good enough to satisfy you
I don’t want your pity, but I can’t deny you
so I pretend that your desire is real
and that you feel the passion I feel
sometimes it feels real and convincing
but my reality is only real in being fiction

why do men stray? and why do you stay?
out of weakness, out of desire
to feel a touch, to feel loved
to feel wanted is all I ever wanted
but I feel alone and haunted
by the ghosts of everyone else you wanted
everyone you gave yourself to
because they were able to do what I can’t for you
so why waste your time in this comfort zone
when I can’t even satisfy you at home
I promised myself to do the best I can
but I’m no good if I don’t feel like part of your plan
my shortcomings slowly destroys the man I was
I spend each homecoming knowing I’m not enough.

War Cry

don’t make me a martyr if I die unjustifiably
I will take no part in any racial rivalry
I see color, but still it means nothing
it’s your soul, to me, that means something
we cry foul before we have an understanding
riot after 5 seconds of planning
we burn, loot, and destroy our own community
then ask how could they do this to me
how can they do that to us
as we turn to violence
because our anger won’t be silenced
attack the few that doesn’t share your view
because every battle is now personal

everyone is doing it so you follow
the passion of the emotion that’s not your own makes us irrational
look at yourselves, cause someone has to
only act as one when the situation calls for it
convince ourselves, we do no wrong and you fall for it
criticizing others for portraying a stereotype you reinforce
but of course, neglect the fact that we do the same
black or white, we all do the same
who does it benefit to exploit and broadcast someone else’s pain
so desensitized, it’s a shame
reminding someone of the thing they are trying to forget
reliving the one memory they regret
walking in shoes that don’t even fit
its too obvious that is this path isn’t it
but we are always in our own way
waging wars after we peacefully pray

Don’t use me as the excuse
to reproduce and abuse your foolish acts
don’t presume and fight for my innocence
if you don’t know if I’m innocent to begin with
don’t cry for me if you wouldn’t die for me
don’t pretend to know me if you weren’t already family
your fictitious revolution is not the solution
your protests are self serving
and you wonder why they aren’t working
my death won’t be the cure, the solution
so let me rest in absolution

I hear your war cry
vague and hollow
but still don’t know why
still don’t know who
is it for me or is it for you
that you seek the justice you do

Give Me You

Tell me that I am the one you think of
when I’m not around on your day off
without words,show me that you love me
without hesitation, love me proudly
promise me, you’ll be my friend
tell me you want a relationship that never ends
hug me simply because I’m there
and kiss me without a thought, without a care

show me love, give me affection
signal me in the right direction
give me more of you
more of everything I find so beautiful
I don’t want something old, something new
I will always only want you

I wake up in love with your presence in my life
let me know what I’m doing is right
or if I could do more for the woman I adore
because sometimes we forget, sometimes we neglect our passion
take each other for granted
but let’s make sure those roots don’t hold if the seed’s been planted
speak like you believe in our future
not just another man, treat me as your final suitor
don’t be distant, don’t be cold
I don’t want to grow bitter and old
as you are my youth, you are my truth

hold me, take my hand and express your love
ease my doubts about the above
rest my mind against your chest
give me the time to be your best
as I aspire to love you to the moon and beyond
because limits with you are long gone
you bring new meaning into my world
be proud to be my queen, my girl
give me what you can
what you can only give your man
give me what I let no one else give
A burning desire to love and live
