Dope Beats

I have loved to the point of being afraid to do so Without rest until the monster in the closet became embedded within my chest If I’d loved you any harder it would have collapsed my lungs in the process I was ill you were sicker I was fresh You were death We were dope beats Like, “When I’m alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall and in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call” Weak in the knees like an SWV song I couldn’t Xscape for enough understanding 1990’s Def Jam Dressed up in Goose Downs and Adidas You were the track on the line before hearing the beat the first time Boom box blasting through summer heat on pitch black concrete If lyrics expired I’d play you on repeat Wear the record smooth with thoughts of you until the only sound to be heard is the needle against the surface Purchase multipurpose surplus purple circus purses just to keep you tongue-tied upon my lips Who gave Bonita Applebum a key to my heart He art be charged in the court of law Freedom of speech revoked Pimp card removed Just “U.N.I.T.Y That’s a Unity” You did not turn me away from love Just caused me to be more hesitant Cautious You taught me to be slow and deliberate To walk the first time Never ignore red signs Flag on the play, walk away “You is kind. You is. Smart. You is important. “ But let’s not forget You is immature. You is reckless. And worst of all, you is disloyal. There is no honor amongst thieves Only fair exchange is no robbery You may have back your fool’s gold My worth is priceless Timeless Token good thing a man whom finds a wife speaks of My love abounds in knowledge and discernment Fervent and withstanding Because of you I am now better prepared for love
