My Old School R & B Lady

2021, Henery X ©

Tell Me Have You Seen Her. If not, and you happen to, tell her I said Hurry Up This Way Again. She and I use to be Closer Than Close. But now, That Girl, She’s Out Of My Life. Oh What A Night we had on the 21st night of September. She put me in The Mood when she said, Turn Off The Lights. And then we made Tender Love, Under The Cherry Moon. But now, she’s not even my Distant Lover. She’s just distant, what a Mystery. But my Love Is Stronger Than Pride. So, it doesn’t matter where she resides. I’ll Be There, On Bended Knee. Saying, You’re Once, Twice, Three Times A Lady. My First, My Last, My Everything. I’d Rather Go Blind than to see you without me. Until You Come Back To Me, I’ll Be Sitting Up In My Room. Listening to old school R & B love songs like, I Miss You or a House In Not A Home. So, please pick up the phone because I don’t deserve it, talking to your Answering Service.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering.

I love music more than any other non-human thing. Music literally saved my life. Everything I have ever written was done as music played in the background. Music is like fresh air for me, in other words, it keeps me alive. Music, Reading, and Writing are my drugs of choice, and I live under their influence daily. True story.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we've already done.
