Continuing with my Chocolate Brown Brother theme this week...
Today is one of my on-the-job honey's birthday
He's the one I actually dated years ago...
But we didn't work out and now he's married and I'm committed...
Yet we have/had some unsettled business
Never really made peace with each other
We've agreed to be friends again
Yet there's this tension between us
Tension that will just have to go unreleased
If you know what I mean...
In any case...
He's a big chocolate brown brother
Tall and handsome
I went 3 years not speaking to him
And every one of those years I missed him dearly
I tried to front and act like seeing him didn't bother me
I told my friends I was over him
But every time I saw him
And especially if he was talking with another woman
I'd get jealous
And turn around and hate him more and more
What I missed most
Were our intimate moments
Shared on the telephone
Or at a movie theater
Or sitting while reading my psychology texts books
He's a strong brother
With this big resounding voice
Even though he's tall and strong
He's gentle and kind
Today I wished him a Happy Birthday
Filled with love and joy and happiness
And for once, I truly meant it
