Then Thin Line

Poem By Juanita Richardson

it seems like you know that i care
and its not fair
cause i dont know how you feel
you know that im honest
but honestly
i dont know how long i'll be here
today unlike yesterday
is filled with more doubt
because i know where i stand
but i have know clue what you are about
i dont like being neglected
though i would prefer it over being disrespected
i feel as if i've been more that willing to give
and you are just being overprotective
and as time passes on
i dont know if its you i want
i dont like the way i feel
though these feelings have never been more real
now im torn between the two
do i love
or do i hate you
feel like im spinning around in circles
and theres no way to escape from you
when in all actuality i dont want to
but its you that makes me want to
i cant hold on to
something that doesnt exist
i wont keep offering
if i know you are just going to resist
its got me feeling sick
and tired
im tired of trying
always proving how much i care
just to be denied it
i dont want the world
i dont even want to be your girl
but i want to know where we stand
they say a man
will be a man
and i still dont understand
why i have to be the one that suffers
maybe thats just who i am

Here We Go Again

instinctively i proceed with caution
somehow im never the solution to the question
just another addition to the problem
understanding the mechanics and dynamics of the situation

Get Over It

no matter how much time continues to goes by
no matter how many times i break down and cry
i can't get over this heart ache
i can seem to find peace


just wanted to make a difference
just wanted for him to be addicted
just need someone to talk to
just thought i'd have a spot in his heart too


i am ready to do what is neccessary
not knowing what the outcome maybe
though in order to achieve
one must first believe


ow could u do this to me?
how could you say you loved me and treat me this way?
how was it possible for you to take my love forgranted?
what could have possible made you act the way you did?


i wanna know the truth
i wanna whats good with you
yo i been reaching out to you
and i been preaching out to you
