 From the Heart Through the Pen


“Just so I don’t hear that ish

I drown my liver in this liquor”


It flows through my system

Cause I need something warm in

This heart that’s just cold...cold, worn and...


She loves to call my name so
She's in my ear tonight

Cause I need an R&B voice

Seductively sultry

Transparency is what she asked from me

No longer gonna release those keys 

No longer letting anyone see inside

On the edge and off the verge

Love isn’t something I know

Though I write out of


I’ve never been so wrong about love


Just escapes my...gasp

My breath now lost 

But can it be forever 

Cause I can’t escape my past 


Off the cliff and on the brink

Of losing...it

What do you mean 

They don’t ever be choosing...it

Dang these fat fingers

I meant me 

Sleep aids...not the kind I’d praise

But the kinds that gets me outta these daze

...outta these days...outta these...
