Beautiful Monkey

 MAN

i only date white, asian and maybe mixed race men

african americans can only hope to be my friend

my dark skin

do you lust after it or love it?

my shapely body

do you want to protect it or only uncover it?

a forbidden fruit, that allows you to bite time and time again

a taboo experience, that you can brag about to your friends

a vessel of pleasure, open for you to release all of your sins

i feel like all these things and less

never more

never the wife

jealously labeled a whore often wanting more

if i’m honest with myself I know i’m being used

if i wasn’t beautiful would it still be me you choose?

i know i’m playing a game and it’s rigged so i’ll lose

But i want what i want and i won’t be refused

WOMAN

no matter how sexy

no matter how arresting

no matter how ambitious

no matter how interesting

no matter how intelligent

no matter how talented

no matter how provocative

no matter how engaging

no matter the conversation

no matter how resilient

no matter how persistent

no matter how virtuous

no matter how courteous

no matter how meek

no matter how strong

no matter how i stand tall

no matter how i shrink small

no matter how soft

no matter how sweet

no matter how gentle

no matter how understanding

no matter how honest

no matter how quiet

no matter how outspoken

no matter how willing

no matter how difficult

no matter how believing

no matter how revealing

no matter my next of kin

no matter who i befriend

no matter who in the past i bed

no matter how often i cook

no matter how much i clean

no matter not having any kids

no matter if i stay trim and fit

no matter how much space i give

no matter the demands– i still put up with it

no matter where you go i go too

no matter how loud i coo

no matter how i tremble

no matter how i praise

no matter how long i swoon

no matter how heartily i laugh

no matter how passionate i cry

no matter how politically correct

no matter the manner of sex

no matter how much i jiggle

no matter how many times i solved the puzzle

no matter how courageous

no matter how expensive

no matter how flawless i dress

no matter how many degrees i get

no matter how much i progress

no matter how hard i try

why do you still continue to categorize me as second-best????
