2 Danileigh Poems

Read Reggie’s Danileigh review here.

Famous
You been made your choice
So long ago and now you back
Easing your way back in the picture
When I been faded to black
Ain’t no way this time I’m a let you slip through the cracks
Stepped on them too much
When I would’ve thought you’d have by back

Now damn baby
Hold up, hold up wayment
I been moved on from you being impatient
Now look at you Adele
How now he got you chasing pavement
Now you paying for your actions when I was done making payments
The way you check up on me I swear I should be famous
You had a shot at something real
Now look at what you did miss

See
You prolly daydreaming of how life was with me
Looking back at that nightmare that I first couldn’t believe
All it seems like now is that you looking for a reprieve
How you gonna end it and now you dont want to concede

Now damn baby
Hold up, hold up… wayment
I been moved on from you being impatient
Got kicked to the curb and how’s tasting pavement
I know you surfing my pages
Seeing making waves and
Just next time you see me, just make sure that I’m famous

Last Night
I’ll tell you what happened last night
You probably grabbed your pillow
Hoping my hand was down the middle
Grabbing you so tight
Cool under the covers but our heat brings it to new heights
Then that sensation became frustration
Led by your defamation cuz you thought you was right
Now you down bad, and I don’t feel bad
Now that you don’t have goodnights
I know what happened last night

Seemed to pop up more in my life than on a browser
Well sweetheart you are not a Peach and I am not Bowser
You not even a peach, but you was the reason things went south
And I can see you still care as the emotions bleed from your mouth
That Red look good on you
Because the blues you gave me years ago,
If you know what it do to you
Don’t come back in my life now thinking what I can do for you
Don’t be popping smoke, thinking I’m gonna woo you

What you know bout love?
Jumping in and out relationships
Or even situationships
Playing all these different games
Wasn’t fully equipped
All while you thought you were being tight lipped
Now look at you, life hits you quick
Looking for a come up while they saying you wanted…
