I Bleed Ice
┬ęDel Antonio
I bleed ice
Funky cold medina type
I was loved out
Hoped out
Tried out
It was a new day
I didn’t see love for me
I wasn’t looking either
And if u were looking at me for it
I could only give u fever
Take u on a high u never felt before
And I know u think
U heard it all before
But my words
The way I used verbs
And adjectives
Describing you then me
U had no choice but to surrender your attention see
Next stage is u being intrigued
Before u know it
U crave for more
Then more
And more
Of me
U wanted this hallow vacancy
U wanted to somewhat save me
From my bitter thoughts
My frozen ideas of love
I was loved out
Bleeding ice
That funky cold medina type
Say hi
To the baddest dude u’ll ever meet
I can make u feel
When inside I’m empty
U create illusions
Then mentally u have me intruding
Into Ur space, Ur time
U already named a place in Ur heart
And say it was mine
And honestly u still don’t know me
It’s what u hope for me to be
U slipped and fell on an ice berg
U got consumed with the way I used words
How I position verbs
And adjectives
Describing u
Then describing me
But it’s ice I bleed
I’m loved out
I could only be something you fantasize about
Because in the real world
Where real things happen see
I never was into you
U just caught up on ideas about me
It’s ice I bleed

Acceptance after Rejection

Sometimes you don’t get it until there is nothing left to get- we often neglect us when we focus on someone- we lose sight of us because we keep staring at that someone. I’ve been rejected more times than I would like to admit but hey, it happened. However, after each rejection I’ve gathered more information and awareness of me. If you are not careful people can make you feel like something is wrong with you the way they reject you. I live in Atlanta where options are second nature. No one really cares to truly invest because there are so many options, so many possibilities to say NEXT! Leaving you wondering if you will ever meet one that wants just one person. The guy who says he’s not looking is willing to accept everyone. I’m looking for a unicorn (something never seen before but told exist) don’t feel bad if you get rejected take that time to love on yourself more, get closer to you- understand you- know to be ok with a bye from someone who could never be consistent with a hi!
