Equity

   
Hopefully this isn't the extent of us  
Consumed in this exquisite foray into lust  
This copulation... †  
Was it great?...yes indeed †  
But 'tis agreed we'd need more †  
To build something concrete †  
Outside of this bedroom to see †  
If we..you and I..can mesh †  
Beyond the flesh †  
†††  
...as we've both got scars from previous wars †  
And maybe we're still a lil tender.. †  
A 'lil sore †  
And this be the residue †  
That can come between me and you †  
So let's take this one day at a time †  
† †
Hoping sweetie..that you're not taking this †  
A year and a day at a time †  
Cuz looking too far ahead †  
Can fuck up our now † †
With unrealistic expectations †  
As Time wasn't allotted for either of us †  
To validate our pedigree †  
Would you agree? †  
† †  
Hey..let's be real †  
You and I both have lifers within our ciphers †  
Who've been down with us †  
20..30 plus years.. †  
Who've shed blood †  
And dropped tears with us †  
Who saw us at our worst †  
Who was first there to help us † †
Through all the ups and downs †  
† †  
...And now that I'm around †  
You're around.. †  
Can we safely assume our places †  
Without earning our stripes? †  
Do we think that †  
A couple of good hump sessions †  
Mixed with some midnight confessions †  
Should by default †  
Exalt us to first and foremost? †  
† †  
Look.. †  
I'm diggin you †  
And I think you feel the same †  
We're past the games..yes? †  
But I wonder.. †  
Will my daughter † †
Appreciate the caring woman you are? †  
Will your children understand †  
I'm not trying to be on par †  
With their father? †  
Just a positive role model †  
That they can talk to †  
About whatever †  
..whenever? †  
† †  
Hopefully †  
† †  
We won't have to sever ties †  
Because of the lies †  
We may have unintentionally told ourselves †  
Thus each other by default †  
That this... †  
Can last beyond the bedroom †  
That someday †  
You would be my bride †  
And I your groom.. †  
† †  
Did we assume too much †  
From a kiss... †  
A touch? †  
A fabulous fuck? †  
Silently hoping luck †  
Would pluck us from the abyss †  
Of those who aimed and missed †  
In pursuit of the Heavenly bliss †  
That lies within †  
The nurturing bosom †  
...of Love? †  
† †  
Hmmmmm...maybe.. †  
Maybe not... †  
Only Time will tell... †  
Question is.. †  
How much time are we both † †
Willing to give? †
