Poetry & Justice in a Song

November 29, 2012

"Every time I write these words they become a taboo
Making sure my punctuation curve
Every letter is true
Living my life in the margin and that metaphor was proof
I'm talking poetic justice, poetic justice
If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?
I mean you need to hear this
Love is not just a verb, It's you looking in the mirror
Love is not just a verb, It's you looking poor maybe
Call me crazy, we can both be insane
A fatal attraction is common
And what we have common is pain
I mean you need to hear this
Love is not just a verb and I can see power steering
Sex drive when you swerve, I want that interference
It's coherent, I can hear it, mmhmm
That's your heartbeat
It either caught me or it called me

Breathe slow and you'll find gold mines in these lines
Sincerely, yours truly
And right before you go blind
P.S....."

Kendrick Lamar

Not a huge fan of his music but his lyrics just stuck. 
& I couldn't get them out of my head.
And the girl singing in the back. . . who is that?
Her voice is beyond lovely.
Peace.
