Gemineye breaks down the definition of how a man should approach you if he is interested in not just your looks and body but wants to get to know your mind and soul! Even after you have already been together sexually. Gemineye’s words are that of a man who wants to move beyond friends with benefits into something more serious.
As per usual here is his performance and the words to his poem, for you to contemplate, comprehend and digest.
Can I have a penny, for your thoughts?
As a matter of fact how about three
One penny for you
One penny for me
And one penny for our minds engaged
Not so sexually
Getting intimately closer
As we approach the climactic altitude
Of nude mental sensational conversation
Cuz I’m trying to get to know everything about you
From the neck UP
So these are not your typical sexual poetical prose
I’m trying to close the door of an all too familiar freaky foreplay game
With which most people have chosen to approach you
While they’re trying to get deeply embedded in the fine fibers of your bed sheets
I’m trying to find and define the fibers with which your mind speaks
I want to engage you by putting a two carat solitaire diamond on your mind
And marrying your every thought
I want to lick every inch of every crevice so I can get an oral fix from each orifice
And taste your passionate imagination
I’d rather be naked and exposed holding you as we’re lying
And your crying while confiding and describing the tough times you had in life
And how you don’t know if you can keep a relationship
Long enough to be somebody’s wife
I want to feel the heartbeat of all your inner rhythms as they lead me towards your
Warm wet waterfalls of feminine thoughts
And I’ll swim within ‘em from back strokes to breast strokes
I’m penetrating every entrance to your mind
Taking my time to find out everything about you
Did I ever tell you about how you fell asleep in my presence?
And your mere essence kept me up for hours
As I coward with this feel of a sexually unadulterated mental connection
And as you laid by my side I pushed my blinds aside
And took the time in the moonlight of that night
To county seventy-two eyelashes on the upper eyelid of your right eye
Because as you sleep
As you sleep they remain open slightly
And while we probably move too quickly into some sexual stuff
I’ve always cared more about the explicitly illicitness
That came from between your lips meaning your voice
So now I’m standing here ready to trade in all the sexual acts that we perform
For the chance to reform the very foundation and basis of our relationship
And I reiterate my opening statement
And I offer you another penny for your thoughts
