Food Fashion and Flow: Friday Flow

Friday Flow


I decided to kick a little flow today. We have explored fashion and food and now it is time for you to experience my flow.  This poem like a lot of my writing, was sparked by a conversation.

A man asked me recently what it takes to get close to me and what I want in a man. I thought about it.  And it took me a millisecond to answer it. This poem expresses my sentiment.  Let me know your thoughts.



You better make me smile

I need to smile like theres a million dollar check
In my mailbox
And you better not hurt me
But make me smile
The way I did when I held my son in my arms
After ten hours of labor
Make me smile
like
A child on Christmas morning
That still believes in Santa Claus
A smile Like I just got  paid and its Friday night

I don’t need a stone set
And matching baguettes
But a smile?

You better make me smile
Because a big d*** and good looks
Is like a carbonated drink
It gets flat after a while

And if you can’t make me smile
You need to inspire me
Like speed chasing light
Or Bach adding another note to the symphony
Or Jesus walking on water

And if you cant inspire me
You need to encourage me
I mean pull out the pom poms when I’m losing the game
Encouragement
Or jump off that cliff baby
I’ll catch you if your wings aren’t strong enough to make you fly
encouragement

And if you cant inspire me
Maybe you can ignite me
Light me up like a trail of fire
Chasing fuel
Or Mercury flirting with Venus
And if you can’t inspire or ignite me

Dammit

You need to celebrate me
I’m talking cherry bombs burst, fireworks big production bang
celebration
Roll out the red carpet because I’m comin
celebration
Kiss my daddy for making me
celebration
Butter cream frosting on moist cake
celebration
Distill your own wine because
They don’t make one with enough complex notes and flavor to capture my effervescence
Celebration

And if you can’t inspire, encourage, ignite, or celebrate me?
 if you can’t do any of that?
The least you can do
Is make me
