COME SEE ‘BOUT ME #poetry

  
Baby when you gon’

Come see ’bout me 

You opened my heart for surgery

 and

Took with you my energy

To self sustain our intimacy

I deserve better than 

volunteering info and

pretending you wanted to know

hoping you come back for mo’

It’s my turn to be pursued 

and not settled fo’

~~~•~~~•~~~•~~~

I wanna know 

If its still me you see

Maybe you thought 

You gave enough to me 

Enough to hold me over 

Till you choose to

come see ’bout me

~~~•~~~•~~~•~~~

Please don’t forget to…

Come see ’bout me

I know you don’t need 

another responsibility

Or the insinuation of you 

being the one 

that could make it better for me

Or even a hint that 

you could be my remedy

~~~•~~~•~~~•~~~

And if it felt like 

I was applying pressure 

please accept my apology 

Your strength and appeal  

buckles the strongest knee

The mystique in me 

recognizes the power 

of your mystery

~~~•~~~•~~~•~~~

So if you ever down 

to seize a moment in time

You’ve an open invitation 

to come see ’bout me…

No RSVP required

It’ll just be when fate meets destiny
