  • (The beat that my heart skipped sounded like this...)

    Every now and then I cower and I need to find empowerment
    Empowerment is paramount to how I can begin to mount
    A plan that I can implement
    to make a dent on ignorance
    Instead of drunk belligerence
    and the dissidence of miscreants
    Especially in this instance
    with the never ending persistence
    to use the words in each sentence
    as if they were blunt instruments
    to beat a hole in the defence
    of this beauty and her innocence
    which serves to just build resistance
    in spite of all my good intents.

    The beat that my heart skipped

    This is the beat that my heart skipped when we first met
    Now that I've heard it, it leaves me with a kind of regret
    No disrespect
    We just left a lot of people upset
    And what we had wasn't really what we'd come to expect

    Well good god d___ and other such phrases
    I haven't heard a beat like this in ages
    To miss such a beat would have been outrageous
    But when you heart skips a beat its ruthless and aimless

    She caught my attention in her fishnets
    Then she reeled me in expecting nothing more than kissed necks and quick s__
    But that weren't the case with this platinum princess
    She's attracted my interest
    So I wanted to impress....
    Upon her all the positive things
    That come form having more than just a one night fling
    But that's something that's easier in theory than in practice
    Since pick up lines are tactics
    To get prey to the mattress
    And this actress
    Is practiced
    In shunning such theatrics
    When put upon daily by tactless geriatrics

    So my genuine advances are met with po-faced scepticism
    Throwing complements but she just straight elects to miss them
    Her lips were put on this earth for dispersing wisdom
    God forbid I suggest she lets me kiss them

    But I really want to know what she thinks of me
    Because I'm loving every idiosyncrasy
    But I ain't one to jump through hoops to make a 1st impression
    Been there, done that, learnt the worst of lessons
    We want to be loved for who we appear to be instead of who we are
    So I real selves take a backseat behind the pomp and the façade
    And that's as true of the rude boys, downing pints and acting hard
    As of the kids shunning convention with clinical disregard
