Remind me who takes it all at last,
the cries, the shame, worries and joys in the past.
These ones never heard of you,
the whole, priceless yet worthy of a true.
LOVE ME ALL THE TIME.
I didn’t need you when I needed to pray,
to wear my make-up, spray and slay.
Who left my name in your mouth?
with your opinions stinging and stinking like gout.
LOVE ME BACK TO BACK.
Can I say a word or two?
about myself, my worth, the way I eat too.
It’s not my taste for men you despise so,
but the way I love and love me to toe.
LOVE ME IN THIS SEASON.
Life without me is like no life
no star, no queen, less diamonds, no wife.
I’ll pay my weaknesses with strength and love
nevertheless, these words won’t stall or put me off.
LOVE ME WITHOUT REASON
