Find your niche

Standard

Pieces to a puzzle

You can call me jigsaw

Find the edges, fuck a frame

Defying Newton’s law

Lots of places, tight spaces

Working hard to find the fit

Expectations, limitations

Make it hard to submit

People saying I should settle

& give up the dream

Not counting on my mental

Girl doing big things

Talk all you want, cause I ain’t fronting

Been around long enough

Lioness been hunting

Killin’ it since ’89

Yeah boy, you know me

I may fail, I might fall

But I got that degree

& I would rather be starving

To know I have that hunger

Out on the prowl

Mark of a true hunter

 

Girl can’t help it

Standard

Silly little girl

Filled your world

You begin to unfurl

Let your feelings run away

But you knew he can’t stay

Thought you knew this by now

Yet you fallin’ somehow

Trippin’ over pretty words

Go ahead, take a bow

Mistakes here and there

A fatal love affair

Inhibition released by touch

Guess I smoked too much

Feel tricked but I got treats

Boy be making hot beats

See me runnin’ these streets

Tellin’ me I’m so sweet

Got this passion, it was heavy

But no hope of going steady

Life’s a game, so they say

And this is just foreplay

About a boy

Standard

There’s something different about this boy

Got me feelin’ like Helen of Troy

He has style with a classic grace

In his finger tips when he grasps my face

An old soul groovin’ to a fresh beat

My favorite place is tangled in my sheets

His laugh, his smile, he’s got these eyes

That see right through, got me hypnotized

But more than that, I feel seen

No longer stuck in between

That feeling of whether it’s real or not

Because no matter what this man was brought

Into my life under the strangest of chances

And the simplest things, he enhances

At the very least my heart is on fire

He is the spark made to inspire

Standard

I tried to do good by you 

Ya never knew what I been through

Nod ya head, pretend just right

Then casually forget during a fight

Nothing comes easy, not even a choice

& priority one was finding my voice

Stuck in a whirlwind of cyclical dances

Path less traveled worth my chances

Summertime

             Skylines

Dancing off the tongue 

Sometime 

            My mind

Is a song unsung

Can’t know what u don’t see

& u ain’t trying to know me

My spirit left unkept 

Like a wild mane except

The parts kept inside

For the soul to confide 

This wandering heart of mine

        its’ fervent, honest way

Makes it hard to remember

        don’t trust a word u say

Fiyah

Standard

A woman of her own right

Tryna make a move

Everyone got their opinions

Knot feeling my groove

Until you walk my path less traveled

Imma dance to the beat in mah chest

Not sure what I want

But know what I don’t

I won’t stop

Even if I’m broke

Cause trials bring perseverance

And perseverance, hope

Gotta keep moving

Laying down tracks

Cause this locomotivated lady

Gonna have you saying

Mama do you, do you

Got nothing to prove

I’m a run on

Sentence with no ending

And people gather round

To see what I’m selling

It ain’t trends, jewels or flashy thangs

More like a soul food

For you hungry earthlings

Title goes {here}

Standard

Drip drop

The faucet thought

Continues down the drain

Hip hop

What music sought

Repeat the refrain

Krackle pop

The milk stops

With soggy remains

Tip top

Can’t be bought

The permanent stains

Flip flop

The sun caught

A flowing golden mane

Lip lock

With burning hot

Love is insane

Gypsy Love

Standard

We met when I was a baby, only 19
Running around with a fake ID
My mantra was live care free & reckless
Every night in a different sundress 
That night we made out, a twisted allegory
For a question mark saved, became a funny story
One day we got down, passion was heavy
Kept it going for awhile, coulda been going steady 
Not one to be tied down, so I kept it moving 
Altho many times I regret not proving
Why I was a girl worth playing for keeps
But I was young n scared to take big leaps
Then one day it became so clear
You were the guy I longed to be near 
Your style, that smile, and gypsy eyes
Made me wanna be a girl u considered a prize
Not because I thought I needed to change
But to match your power and change the game
You’re guarded with walls of immense height
And I’m stubborn enough to try and fight
My way into your circle and gain trust 
I know I might fail, this may only be lust
But one thing I know for certain is how I feel
Something I’ve struggled to conceal
So fuck it, here it is, layed out on the table
I like you, I want you, a love left unlabeled
