Sativa

Cherry-red lips

Stretched hips

Hormones on full throttle

Lusting

Craving

Begging

For attention

Starving for affection

Looking for love

In the bottom of a bottle

Rollin’ and shakin’

Puff-puff

Pass

Hoping the weed

And the drinks

Fill a need…

Trading in her dignity

For a love hangover

Pledging her allegiance

To the streets

Chasing butterflies

While her soul bleeds

To welcome

In the heat

Of a boy

Who doesn’t love her

Because he knows

She doesn’t

Love herself

Puff-puff

Pass

Puff-puff

Pass

Closing her eyes

White-hot

Desire

Burns

Through her chest

And her heart

Skips a beat

As he pushes

And

Pushes

Bursting through

The fire

Stripping her

Of hopes

And desires…

Filling her voids

With dirty deeds

Planting seeds

Of

Empty promises

Polluting her womb

And

He’s not the only one

They’ll all take turns

And still she’s incomplete

Becoming his latest tweet

Puff-puff

Pass

Puff-puff

Pass…

Round n round

She’ll go

Used up

Abused up

Still searching for a reason

To give her mind

Body

And

Soul

To a boy who’ll

Never make her whole

Puff-puff

Pass…
