Runaway Bride

i have a knack for finding reasons to run away
a runaway bride who ran way before a proposal
never staying in the same place

consistency isn’t the issue
faith in the possibility is the cause for my exits
fear and uncertainty

i think too much
feel too much
i am too much
just when I get comfortable I’m reminded of all the times I simply let go and found myself unable to breathe as if in a chokehold
powerless

the walls aren’t visible at first glance
surprisingly they arrive once I feel I’ve been vulnerable enough
seeking for a reason
any reason to free myself of being vulnerable because we know love stories don’t exist for colored girls like me

we know love stories don’t exist for colored girls like me
we know love stories don’t exist for colored girls like me
we know love stories don’t exist for colored girls like me
we know love stories don’t exist for colored girls like me

do you ever really stop being a victim
or is that just me?
i have a knack for running away
you should probably grab me
but surprisingly enough I’m sitting here waiting for you
i haven’t ran
the gate is open
im hopeful

we know love stories don’t exist for colored girls like me
but id like to challenge this sorta ideology
this colored girl wants a love story
