Gossip Girls

Gossip girls, Gossip girls,

Motor mouths that rule the world

Spreading rumors with a whisper, into ears drop bitter pearls.

Harvesting their bitter pearls from the sea of other’s sorrows

Cast their nets today, for the bait they’ll use tomorrow.

Feasting on the misery from lives of other folks

Masking viciousness, with a wink, and twisted jokes.





When I decided not to gossip with you anymore

Forget the box… I opened up Pandora’s door!

To the closet where my skeletons and secrets kept,

A heavy lid on the past where my pain slept.

So then you spread all my business out there to the world.

Yeah I was hurt, but I knew you were a gossip girl.

You exposed my stuff wide screen for them all to see…

Flashed me your fake smile… what… now you’re my frienemy?



I’m getting smirks from co-workers that we used to Dog!

They treat me funny, like some kind of backside log.

They’re passing looks over cubicles with eyebrows raised

I know the deal, I used to do it, Man those were the days.

Those were the days when I was too afraid to tell you “STOP!”

Before an ugly word from your mouth was ever dropped,

About another and the struggles they were going through.

It ain’t my business, I’m doing me, they’re doing them, you should be doing you.



Not nosing around in the scent of other peoples lives…

“Child did you hear about the latest, and it ain’t no lie…

“He’s freaking him. She’s freaking her. They’re freaking both their wives!”

Now that’s some rotten stuff, it’s funky, and it’s sorry too.

I should have known better than to play that game with you.



The dog that brings a bone will ultimately snatch and crack,

A piece of your bone, and stab you with it in the back.

How can you pass all those judgments on your fellow man?

He’s on his hustle, trying to make it, doing the best he can.

You cop a “tude” when you see them riding their new whip,

Check your shoulder, that’s not dandruff, just a nasty chip!



A chip that WILL get knocked off, if you keep that gossip going.

What benefit is it to you, people’s business knowing?

And in the telling do you Honestly believe you’re spared?

The one you gossiped with, left you and your business shared.

Shared your struggles with another one who plays the game

One who gossips recklessly, pretends to feel no shame.



But late at night when sweet quiet soothes and calms the world

She regrets the day, that she became a gossip girl.

Long Story Short...

Long story short…

The first thing I noticed was the strength of his thighs

I looked up and was struck by the slant of his eyes

I was shy so my eyes took a dip to his hips

My mouth went dry when I noticed him licking his lips

I stood up and started shifting from side to side

In a blink he was next to me in one smooth stride

I covered my face cause my jaw went slack

As I noticed him checking me out from the back

The sun dimmed when he showed his sparkling grin

He was eyeing me hard and stroking his chin

He was so fine my mind just couldn’t believe

The admiration from this man I had just received

We boarded the bus at the end of our day

His eyes clearly locked on me, the entire way

The world seemed to shift as my heart did a drop

When I saw he was getting off at the next stop

I thought “Dang it always seems to happen like this.”

I changed my mind when he caught my eye and blew me a kiss

I thought this is the end of our moment so sweet

But I was wrong once again, for again we did meet

In a funny circumstance at school the next day

When he noticed me across campus from far away

He waved and yelled, “Wait!” as he ran to catch up

I tried to flee, but I didn’t move fast enough

He caught up when I was just about to open the door

To my class, he made a pass for my number, and scored

Not just my telephone number and curiosity that day

But my heart as well, for then I was in all the way

We started out as friends, it’s been twenty four years, And

Now he’s my six babies daddy and yes my husband.

How can pain douse the flame that once burned so strong?

How did what we thought was right go so incredibly wrong?

How does the brilliant shine of dreams fade into dismal grays then black?

How does friendship that was tight, lose it’s grip and fall slack?

Can we ever build a bridge across the gaping abyss?

Were the little hurts we stuffed away the clues that we missed?

Are the days of long ago when we called each other “Friend”

Overshadowed by our bitterness, now signaling the end?

It’s as hard as hard can be for me to say good-bye to you

But my sanity’s at stake, so it’s what I must do

To regain my peace, my happiness, and be my better self

To be what you said you wanted, I put me upon the shelf

I will never hate you, Ever, for the better part of “We”

Are the one’s we’ve made together, we were blessed you must agree

In their genes they carry promises that we could never taste

But the times we shared together were not at all a waste

For the things I thought would kill me, showed me that I have the strength

To walk and run the distance, to stretch and to reach the length

Of heights I couldn’t imagine, one’s only God could see

To be all that God Himself has created me to be.

“Smooches Dahling” on our parting, no it’s not a godfather’s kiss

And the things I’ve written here are in no way meant to “Diss”

You, or me or what we had, life is what it is, So then


One day with out pain or strings attached, we’ll call each other friend…again.
