Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

I Don’t Believe

I don’t believe the good
That slips from lips I love
Sweet words and promises
I don’t believe in “I love you too”
It may sound harsh to your ears
But if you listened with your heart
You would understand me

I have rushed in times before
Disregarding my common sense
And even in taking my time
Good things fell apart too soon
I loved hard, lived on apologies
Held on to sorry like it could mend me
Forgive me, but I’ve seen more going than coming
Forgive me if I’m thinking of goodbye at every hello

I don’t believe the good
So I hesitate, ask too many questions
Do you really love me? Will you stay? Please stay.
I’m trying to believe that I can give you all I have
And I’m terrified. I’m afraid that you may rob me of me
I’m conditioned to believe in the fire and disappointments
To believe in always crashing and burning
I believe in love that seldomly loves me back
I know there’s good but I can’t love away the bad.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
