Subway Love

by Nicola

On the subway subway subway
One day
I was on the subway
Sunday
I was on the subway
Comin from church
Got lost on the subway
But found yur love
On that same subway
The sheppard way
My final stop
1 bus
To my destination
1 must wonder how it came to be
Yu an me
Beautiful sight to see
My insecurites an my past have hauted me until yu came n set me free
Showed me a love that I never thought egxised
Told me to love myself and be me
And thats real
In that moment as I stepped off the train
I looked up yu looked at me
an for a spit second life and time jus paused
Doo doo doo
Doors be closin
I be walkin
Felt a hand
Take me hand an lead me away
Lol wth
I got lost in his brown eyes
Hmmm his brown eyes
Wasn’t tellin no lies
Said he loved my thighs
He smile I smile
What’s ya name
Cola yurs
Chef
Cute so wassup
Nun yu
Oh boo I had to holla at yu
Cause yu be mighty fine in that tight ass skirt
Ass so big an poppin
Almost lost my shirt
I chuckle a bit n my bat my eyes
Pinch me I’m in a dream
This mans way to fly
Down to business
How much kids yu got
3 yu
1
Man
Naw
Girl
Naw
Numba
Pause
we walking an talkin tryna fine my bus
Saw the sunlight shine bright and glisten off his beautiful face
Truss
6’3 to 5’3
Tall to short
Light skin wit braids
Made me weak in the knees
Please lord please
Don’t let this man tease me
He leans close
I can feel his sweet warm breath on my neck
As I hold my face away
He leans closer to my ear an all I hear him say
Is yur so beautiful damn
Gimme ya numba girl please
I wanna chance to make yu smile
N imma do it with ease
My bus is here
I gotta go
I give him my numba an walk away
Ooo damn damn damn
Is what I hear him say
Sittin on the bus
Ring ring
Hello
All I wanted to do was hear yur voice one more time
Maybe we’ll meet up soon
But for now its js goodbye
