#NewMusicMondays on Mariah Carey’s Heartbreaker

As a little girl, I remember I enjoyed making rhymes and playing with words.
I wrote my first poem in third grade and it caught the attention of my teacher. She liked it and had me recite it to the class. In high school and college, I’d receive compliments from my teachers/ professors, and wasn’t until college that I decided to hone in on my writing skills. I didn’t realize how much the arts played such a big roll in my life (I would keep a number of art/writing journals and still do). Anyhow, one night after work, I decided to get back into it and wrote a little something. Went out of my comfort zone for this one.

Hope ya’ll enjoy.

beat on: “Heartbreaker” by Mariah Carey ft. Jay Z

♪ he wanna take me out
to “feel me out”

he wanna buy my Louie
with a belt that say gucci
wanna check my phone like he hasn’t before
he wanna buy my sushi
with a late night movie 
he wanna hold my hand
lay me while he do me

he wanna f*** again
then tell his friends
he wanna bring me home
to meet his mom, ask me all these
questions that I’ma have to dodge

he wanna love up in the beach
bake a dish of quiche
look me in the eye
kiss me on my cheek

he wanna ask, “why location don’t show”
“tell me code, show me yo phone” 

he calls me, heartbreaker
“makes me wanna date her”
