Minds Eye

Into the mind of a Black Woman.

I believed in crazy things when I was younger

You know Santa, tooth fairy, monster under the bed

Stuff like that

those are the kind of things to you can get over when you find out it’s not real

So….why can’t I get over you

It’s not like I’m in love with you or anything

Could it be that I believed in your truth

Your struggle, your success and intellect

Or could it be that I believed in your lies, while compromising with your demands

You might as well have been a figment of my imagination

Cause I believed you could do wonders

Do no wrong like the fairy god mother granting Cinderella’s wish to go to the ball

like there wasn’t an underlining clause

But like a child catching their parents putting presents under a tree

I’ll grow up and grow out of believing in silly things like you
