Note For Lil Jaida

Your beauty is far from a curse

It’s something like a love song

Or a well written verse

Of a specially written love poem

It’s not for every man to understand

It’s not one dimensional

It’s multi

Something that truly can only be seen

When someone focuses their third eye

It can be used as a litmus test…

Failure to realize

Carries consequences of being characterized

Like the rest

That were only able to see you

As a simple physical conquest

I am a writer

At least that’s one of the things I do

Writers paint pictures with words

And I choose all of mine carefully

Like the strokes with paintbrushes artists use

If I was only talking about how you look

I’d say, “you LOOK beautiful”

When I put ‘you are’ in front of the word

BEAUTIFUL

I’m thinking of all the qualities I’ve noticed so far

I am talking about all of you

 

Beautiful in a sense that the mere definition of beauty found in dictionaries across the land are a discredit to your true essence. There is no encyclopedic or Wikipedia reference that would be an equivalence to your grandeur. You are so beautiful that you make me want to pick up my pad and my pen and let them get reacquainted so that their offspring can grace the world reincarnated speaking of your excellence. You are not only visually beautiful, you are so much more than that. Your voice is beautiful. Your smile is beautiful. Your smirk is beautiful. Your style is beautiful. Your heart and the depth of the love that I perceive it to have is beautiful. How you think is beautiful (I don’t think there is anything more attractive than an intelligent lady). Your class is beautiful. Your strength is beautiful. I could go on and on and on…

DM

This is probably not what you expect from a man

The first time that you see him

Not saying it’s the best song in the world

But I’m happy for us that

It went down in the DM (…it goes down)

You asked what with you makes it different

I should have just replied everything

You just might be the type of lady that will

Make a man rethink and reconsider everything

What makes this different?

I feel it right here (3 taps to chest)

When we talk, text or snap

I feel it right here (3 taps to chest)

When I think of the quantities of qualities

When without me asking

You sang for me

I felt it right here (points to chest)

Since I feel it right here (points to chest)

It means I feel you right here (points to head)

First impressions are important

I know this is different and an interesting way

To get a date started

But I was as serious as an attack on the heart to stop it

When I said

I’m trying to pull you off the market
