Welcome , this my corner

My prayer

i was never shy
then somehow i met your life
i didnt know what to make of you
you prayed every night and ask
for true love
i went places where it smell like brown rum
and cigars...
u wanted me to go places
where leaves turned and flowers bloomed all year
that was us wanting to be safe
it was easy for you
but so hard for me
i was from a place where the hot sun
beat down on black top
the smell of oil left on my neck,
and taxi men w/yellow teeth picked me up
where men have hardhats
 and women dont wear panties
w/thier dresses
yeah this is my life
your life was of sweet golden corn
slow hills rolling into the heavens
were girls come to you as virgins
w/mothers named Mary
yes this is your life
so lets jus be, no conversation
lets jus be-
 these feelings we have it will pass
we could never understand each others prayers
