What He Never Told You IV

Morning Word | What He Never Told You IV
He Said….”Every time I took you back when you disrespected Me and every time I tried to work things out when you were out of pocket, I found myself erasing the line of respect I laid down for the both of us. Pretty soon there was no line for you to abide by. Pretty soon things got blurry and unallowable things between you and me became that much more allowable. And then it hit Me… The line I drew in the sand wasn’t for you to live by, It was for Me. It was meant to protect Me from Me when I can’t see people for who they are anymore. Because love will blind you and have you accepting treatment from people that you normally wouldn’t had you been in your right mind. But now I know. Next time I decide to live in love, I’ll be sure to remember to live inside the lines I draw in it as well….”

What He Never Told You III

Morning Word | What He Never Told You III
He Said…”I only fight for relationships when there is still something worth fighting for. You threw in the towel in the 12th round, Then had a change of heart and tried to pick it back up and fight for you and me again. Only problem is, I didn’t have another round left in Me. One thing about Me is, When relationships are over I’m usually ok with that. No point in giving CPR to something that’s been dead a long time. When you are with me, I give you my all. But the moment you start treating me like I don’t exist to you, That’s usually when I start disappearing. Hard to keep someone’s attention when the magic is gone and the moment has already passed. My love ain’t the type of love that you can keep picking up and dropping whenever you feel the need to. When you start acting like you can’t see what you have in front of you, That’s usually when I begin helping you with your vision by walking away. And walking alone never phased me…”

What He Never Told You II

Morning Word | What He Never Told You II
He Said… “I just tried to show you that all men wasn’t the same. Everyone woman deserves at least one gentleman in her life, That has the power to change her whole perspective on finding love. I tried to be that gentleman for you. But loving you did the reverse. Loving you turned me into an asshole, Because you didn’t respond well to being catered to. You didn’t respond well to having your doors opened for you. You didn’t respond well to me showing you things you never saw before or cooking you things you never had. You didn’t respond to being spoken to with dignity and respect. Naw, You only responded to being treated horribly. And loving you takes all the family values I learned growing up and throwing them out of the window. And I can’t do that. I want my next woman to give me back what I give her. That’s the only case where I don’t mind being an Indian Giver. Because it’s not about feeding your soul at the expense of starving mines. I need to feel special too. I need to feel like I’m the only star in your sky even if there are a billion others close by…”

What He Never Told You

Morning Word | What He Never Told You
He Said…”In the beginning you were a different woman. Back then the thought of seeing you sent me back to feeling like a kid the night before the first day of school. I had always looked forward to seeing you. But then things changed. Or more than that, Maybe we both did. I started noticing that you wasn’t putting as much effort into me anymore. I started seeing you casually appreciating me a lot less, While still demanding that I give you all of me. I started seeing how your conversations with guys that you told me were “Just Friends” grew deeper and deeper. Then you started keeping things from Me. And to be honest, I did too. But the difference between you and I was, You did it because you never intended on giving our relationship a chance, And I did it because I was still trying to. I never told you how friends and family members were all betting against you and me to fail. I never told you about the countless times I got on my knees praying to God that you would wake up one day and get “Your” shit together. But you never did. Because I kept shit together for both of us for so long that it grew to be exhausting. Doing that placed a handicap on your growth. You couldn’t be the woman I needed you to be because our relationship didn’t require a true demand of it. The love I had framed, Took you completely out of the picture. Either that or maybe I really wasn’t in love. Maybe I was just trying to prove to everyone else that I really was even if we both really wasn’t…”

Are You Worth Someone’s Attention?

Morning Word
Are you worth paying attention to? Being Handsome or Beautiful doesn’t mean that someone needs to drop everything they are doing to entertain you. Most people have done that so many times in the past, They completely got off track with their own life trying to please and make someone else happy. And when they got off track with God’s plans, Nothing made sense in their life. If you are someone who can add value to the path someone else is already traveling, Your presence will be appreciated. But if you can’t fit in someone else’s life smoothly and help them grow in the same direction, You will just end up becoming a distraction.

Maybe

Morning Word | Maybe
All he tried to do was be the best man that he could be for you. But you kept letting your past get in the way of your future. You kept letting your actions push him to the point of no return. Maybe you felt like it wasn’t worth it for you to grow. Maybe you felt like since every other man dogged you in the past, It was only a matter of time until the best man you ever had did the same thing. Maybe no one ever taught you how valuable trust and loyalty was. Maybe you will start to learn what is important in life, When you wake up one day and you are surrounded by people who make you feel less than important. You blocked your own sunlight, And then cried victim when it rained. Love didn’t give up on you, You just didn’t give it a chance….

What He Read In Her

Morning Word | What He Read In Her
When he picked up your book and started reading you, It was like he already knew you. You were the unsung lyrics written on his heart that he had been waiting his whole life to hear. The more he read, The more you opened up his spirit. It’s so natural for us to live comfortable behind our invisible brick walls protected from everyone. But reading your story, Begun the process of taking his bricks down. And the things past men took for granted with you, Were the things he had been praying and waiting for. And when you shared your scariest and darkest stories with him the world never knew, It was like a light went off. As a bond was being established, A connection was developing stronger. Because a person can be in a relationship with someone for years, And at the end of that relationship it’ll hurt them knowing that the other person never even knew them the entire time. But when you both started reading pages from each other, It was like a sigh of relief. Because for once in your life, You both actually fell for someone who didn’t feel like a stranger to you…

What She Read In Him

Morning Word
To her you were worth reading. When it came to you, She didn’t want to unfairly judge you by your cover like some of the other women did before her. She wanted to get to know you for you without someone else’s jaded opinion clouding her judgement. She looked at you and saw a good story that no one else bothered to read deeply yet. And when she cracked open the first page and started reading the top layer of your soul, She couldn’t put you down. She became mesmerized. You flooded her thoughts breaking down mental levee’s she had in place for years because, It’s almost taboo for a man to be able to make a woman “Climax” at the top of her temple like that anymore. And she had gotten so used to only having the physical, That subconsciously she had forced her body to adjust to not having consistent mental stimulation from a man throughout her day. But then she read you, And started falling even harder for you, Line upon line, Page after page and Chapter after Chapter…

A Woman’s Smile

Morning Word
It’s usually the smiles that a woman can’t see coming that leave the greatest impact. Taking 5 minutes out of your day to acknowledge how blessed you are to have Her does more for Her soul than you think it does. It rejuvenates Her Self Esteem. It makes Her feel valued and appreciated. It let’s Her know that the works she has done in your life, Was never done in vain. Acknowledgement can go a long way towards making her smile.
