Girlfriend

you wore large hoop earrings
and platform shoes
plaid gouchoes
a white shirt with a butterfly collar
standing at the corner
sucking on a lollipop
you bought at the candy lady
in the hood, it's all good
'singing we are family'
the girls were blood sisters
with a bad attitude about life
and candy doll shoes
you wore twisted braids
hair lightly pressed
with a long bang
baby hair neatly meshed
girls hung out
speaking of good old times
dreaming of boyfriends
on the corner singing old school rhymes
boy playing a boom box
playing Shaka conn rhymes
I'm feeling you, cause I love you'
the poetry echoes in the girl's minds
Luther Vandross reminds me
of the very first time
the first boy I kissed
how he held me in his arm
I reminisce, our lips pressed
how he touched my heart
I fell in love
