Love's True Nature & How Conditions F*C Things Up.

     Love seems to move so randomly to me. As random as a wandering eye. As random as a feather skipping between gravity and a summer's breeze. As random as a sudden lust for a stranger's touch. As random as a thought. Love is also quick, shapeless and flexible. Love seems to be much quicker than a reaction to a warm touch. Quicker than sunlight can bathe a planet. Quicker than the thought that brought “I love you” to her parted lips. I imagine love to be as shapeless as water but with more imagination than H2O. A creative imagination that would give it a shape that bends the fabric of reality. Allowing it to flow through every reality there is, as freely as god herself. With the ability to match the shape of every heart of every being ever created. A love that can fill any heart to the very brim with light if invited inside. It has been my experience that one of the core lessons we are on this planet to learn is Love’s true nature. How love works. How love doesn’t work. It also has been my experience that regardless of culture gender or upbringing, we all seem to place an abundant amount of conditions on the one’s we love and the way the ones we love express their love to us. Some of these conditions seem reasonable to me. Requiring people to love themselves greater than or at least equal to how much they love you for example. Most of these conditions however do not appear (to me at least) to be reasonable at all.

 


Adult Conversation: What is Taboo to You?

Adult Conversation: What is Taboo to you?

That is a very good question/ Another good question might be: Can I share a scenario about that taboo/ maintain full transparency staying honest & true?/

So I’ll share this with you/

Every now & then/ you will meet a woman who will use her tongue to penetrate you/
Strip you/ split you/ lick you/ in a place not licked by many/ or should I say any?/ on the low the number is closer to plenty/ taking shots of chocolate/ like rappers take shots of Henny/ Some men think they can handle it until the ambush comes in the form of a pretty face/ so pretty in fact/ no one would suspect that she would taste/ the chocolate starfish below a man’s waist/ with no haste/ I watched speechless as she went from franks to beans/ beans to skin/ skin to outer rim/ There is no planet called “Myanus” yet she’s orbiting in circles/ I can’t relax/ Now Iv’e got your nose/ clinch/ I’ve got your nose/ clinch/ I’ve got your nose/ Both of our eyes are closed/ I say quit it with the tongue & I promise I'll let go/ She does’t say yes & she doesn’t say no/ my bootie starts trembling/ My butt crack quivers from fear/ my asshole has low self esteem/ it feels that it doesn’t deserve this/ fresh out of the shower yes/ but feels unworthy of this service/ then I heard a muffled voice but I could not comprehend the words/ she raised her head & spoke again/ she's much clearer now/ every thought she spoke was heard/

She had the prettiest face/ one of innocence/ one of sincerity/ if tenderness had a face it would be hers alone/ Quite sincerely & rather merrily/ she spoke of how she liked to lick the rim/ AKA the chocolate brim with elastic skin/ & how it pleases her so/ and please don’t squeeze her nose again/ please relax and let go/ Now I am at an awkward moment because I prefer to fuck her until the Sun rises/ Some how/ my booty is being held hostage in exchange for the cat/ My prostate and rectum have an argument in fact/ my anus is too scared to talk/ the vibration of fear has the frank & beans on military stand by standing down/ Now they’re facing south in a pair of my favorite Guess jeans/ listening as I call the cab/

I apologize to all who prefer starfish delight/
I’m feeling some type of way/ so I bid her goodnight ~

The Psychologist & the Classy Bitch by Jacquelyn Smithson Howard & GB

Good afternoon, you must be Jacquelyn/ hey girl what’s happening/ let me say a few words before we start & get in it/ 

Feel free to express/ digress or confess/ whatever you want to talk about without feeling needs to defend it/

J: I guess you want me to sit here (facing the crowd and pointing to the couch)/ I ain't layin' there for him.

J: I don’t need to defend anything. I’m just tired of people thinking I’m such a bitch. So, what’s your “few words?”

A few can be as many words you like until the progression/ Just know that you are booked for a one hour session/

J: Well then, since this is on my dime/ let’s forget/ this frilly shit/ & let me not waste any time/

J: I don’t want you to think I’m bitchy/ when I’m really just tired of being accused of being bitchy/

J: The people I’m supposed to trust won’t let me the fuck alone/

Understood completely Ms Howard/ but does what I or what anyone else thinks about you really matter at the end of the day?/

As for your statement about  who you’re supposed to trust/ who we trust & who we don’t, typically never works out that way/

Let's say/ for example who we’re “supposed” to trust is our parents by our understanding/
Then that trust is broken & we are betrayed/ or love isn’t displayed/ or those parents who leave us abandoned/

J: That’s just it. They love me, they just think I need to be like them all the fucking time/ shit!
They think the family should always be together/ Live together/ eat together/ play together/ They think that's better.

Why move me into a 23-room home/ with my own bedroom/ & not let me stay in the damn thing alone/ I’m a straight-A student. I do my homework first/ & they check it/ being teachers/ & all that shit that goes along with that. & I know before they do/ when I short-change myself on my homework/ true/

J: I short-change it on purpose sometimes because they always want me to go higher/ because they know what I’m capable of/

They know what you’re capable of?/ yet I wonder if that’s true for you?
Is bitchy in your nature?/ or is it something that you learned to do?/ to protect yourself from the ones who can hurt your heart?/

J: It is something I do to protect them. It’s been like that since the start/ I don’t like being something I’m not. So I guess I am protecting all of me, cause 'I' am all I got.

Betrayal isn’t protection/ wait and let me explain what I mean by that/ anytime you act/ like something you are not/ you betray yourself and everyone involved and that’s straight facts/

Truth is depleted/ love suffers and healing lacks/ because all of your energy is focused on the fear the attack/

So now let ask/ can you honor anyone by betraying yourself?/

Can you worry yourself sick and expect mental health?/

Can you not know your worth, and count blessings and wealth?/

Is love your foundation or is it something else?

J: If I had the answers to your questions/ I would have never booked the session/ and since I ain’t paying overtime/ I guess I have to book another dime.

8 Life Concepts Most of Us are Hard-Headed About.. #podcast

I walk in spirit with God's wind at my back... I think out-loud and I share those thoughts with critical thinkers. Today we rant a bit. (24 minutes)


Let's Talk...

A funny thing happens when you progress/ in spite of those who attempted to oppress/ the lie that was told that you are less/ gets harder to digest/ especially when you become self aware that every fiber of your existence represents progress/ Funny how when you endure/ hell, high water & manure/ you may evoke the feelings of those who are insecure/

Let’s talk about it more..

When you represent progress/ you may cause pain to those who may have viewed success/ as a right of passage/ a privilege of the savage/ oppressors & over dressers/ who ain’t addressing shit/ that has to do with your well being/ Like you're three fifth’s of a human being/ that should be happy that their ancestors “saved” us from a life in the bush/ I guess we forget/ who cured Europeans of their chicken pox/ when the Moors told them “you shouldn’t have your live stock/ that close to your house” on the couch/ or anywhere else/ next to yourself/ or the ones you love for better health/

Let’s talk about wealth..

I have never had a problem making money/ Interesting that happiness was so elusive every time I sat on six figures/
No matter how nice the suit/ how clean the cut/ how big the brain/ or how nice my game/ I always felt a vibe that said the nerve of this nigger/
Coming in here with his big brain/ articulating game/ & the need for change/ I think he’s strange/ perhaps deranged/ watch out.. I’m scared of him/

The fact that he’s so comfortable/ makes me uncomfortable/ my insecurities make his security not trust him/ & personally I find it disgusting that I’m so focused on his blessings I cannot see my own/ I am reminded of his light every time I see his face/ so as a little just in case/ I do my best to keep him in his place/

Let’s talk about race..

When they think about race/ they think of the many shades of brown/ lust & thirst for tears of clowns/ but that’s simply not how Graffiti gets down/

When I think race I think of happiness as a goal line/ how love & fear can be experienced at the same time/ & how silence to injustice is greater than the actual crime ~
