Prove It To Me In The Nude……..

Heart beats quickly.
I can’t breathe.
This heady sensation.
No don’t stop,
keep going.
If all I can have is pleasure,
Then let me treasure.

Laying on this bed,
feels like paradise.
My heart feels compromised;
Yet I roll the dice.

You lean over my body.
You whisper in my ear,
You tell me things a woman should hear.

Feeling open,
Exposed,
Where is the fire coming from?
This internal steam.
You make me cream.
You scare me because you make me dream.

Dream about more than the average,
To reach for something above and beyond.

Because of your hands,
You have me doing things I don’t understand.
You make me second guess what I thought I knew.
How could I never had a clue?

You hold my body as a person should.
You tell me to trust,
You tell me it’s a must.
I’m trying, but it’s hard.

I tell you but you kiss me,
Hold me,
Shake your head and tell me that you can keep me safe and warm.
I shake my head and disagree.
I tell you,
It’s so hard to give something you fear being broken.
Used,
Overlooked.

You caress my face,
And tell me of a place we will go.
You tell me to close my eyes,
And you will make all the worry subside.

Seen, scream, beam.
You know the theme.

I take a sip from the flask,
and take off the mask.

My Journey With Musiq

“Love’s the sweetest feeling openly believing no matter what we find there come back in through the eyes there.” -Feist (Fire In The Water)

I’ve always loved music. Ever since I was a little girl, and my family would go on road trips all my parents would do is sing sing sing. We would listen to tons of Gospel, Jazz, and some older R&B (My parents singing Earth, Wind, and Fire off-key to each other is a show you’ll never forget.)

I remember me and my younger sister just singing along with whatever they played and singing it as well. When I was a teenager my dad had this crazy idea to rent a van and drive from our home in San Francisco to Virginia. (My parents are hippies, so when my dad completed his tour of duty and left the Marine Corps he married my mom, and they just headed west.)

I know what you’re thinking. How could I possible be in a car with my family everyday for a week of constant driving? But I actually LIKE my family so it wasn’t hard to do. On this road trip we listened to everything. Folk, Rock, Pop, Blues, Jazz, Gospel, and basically anything else you can think of.

I didn’t really have a genre I specifically liked until I was about 13. I heard J.Lo and Ja Rule sing I’m real and lost it. I thought to myself, where have I been? Then I heard some rock, and contemporary Christian and I loved it. I think the song that sealed the deal was when I heard “Love” by Musiq for the very first time. I loved the lyrics, what the song meant , and thought to myself, “How could someone feel that way about another person?”

That’s what I thought love was.

From that point on is way Journey, Janet, J.Lo, New Radicals, Usher, Norman Brown, Yo-Yo Ma, PJ Harvey, Steve Cole, Kenny G (and even I hate to admit it but Earth, Wind &Fire)

What I’ve learned about music is that its timeless. Yeah, some song styles are no longer popular but I could care less. I’m still bumping That’s The Way Love Goes By Janet Jackson, and crying when Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson sing Where You Are on my iPhone.

If you’re reading this, then I urge you to remember you’re favorite song, the one song you can’t live without that made you fall in love with music. Have a good day with your music!
