All of Me

If you want me, you have to want all of me.

Not just the parts of me that make you whole,

Not just the parts of me that soothe your soul.

but the parts of me that make you question,

the parts of me that teach you lessons,

the pieces of me that are so difficult to piece,

that you wonder why you can't ever live in peace

& paradise,

without me.

You have to want all of me.

Not just the portions of me that pour into you, but leave me empty,

while you dive into the oshuns of my divinity,

but leave me shallow. . .

You have to want all of me.

Not just conversations with me that leave you so filled with life,

but drain my energy,

You can't start love with me,

& be the end of me.

You have to want all of me,

Not just lustful desires that fulfill your need to be,

the center of my sexuality,

lacking intimacy,

lacking interest in me,

but being interested in me.

You have to want all of me,

Not just the sunny days,
that brighten your ways,

Or days filled with rain,

that wash away your pain,

While I'm losing me and watching you gain,

all at the expense of ME.

The special pieces of me,

The unforgettable pieces of me,

Remember that I come with. . .

ALL

OF

ME.
