Prince- Adore

I would sacrifice VEELA'S LIST for someone who personified every lyric in this song. ~Veela aka Venus

By: Prince Rogers Nelson

Ooh, baby
Darlin', U're the best, oh girl

CHORUS:
Until the end of time, I'll be there 4 U
U own my heart and mind, I truly adore U
If God one day struck me blind, your beauty I'd still see
Love's 2 weak 2 define just what U mean 2 me

From the first moment I saw U
Ooh, I knew U were the one
That night I had 2 call U
I was rappin' till the sun came up
Tellin' U just how fine U look
In a word, U were sex
All of my cool attitude U took
My body was next
U made love 2 me
Like U were afraid
Was U afraid of me?
Was I the first?
Was I your every fantasy?
That's why...

REPEAT CHORUS

When we be makin' love
I only hear the sounds
Heavenly angels crying above
Tears of joy pourin' down on us
They know we need each other
They know U are my fix (Cuz U know)
I know that U know I ain't cheatin' baby (I ain'…

VEELA’S WISH LIST

I wrote this list almost 7 (seven) years ago. After recently finding it; I’m posting it because I believe that my list hasn’t changed that much. I believe it has fundamentally stayed the same. More than that; I believe that as a woman I speak not only for a majority of women, but I contend that there are a lot of men who would potentially have a similar list for the woman in their life.

PS This is not a Venus List. As Venus I tend to be more objective. :-)

1. I need a man who knows how important my relationship with God is and has his own personal relationship with the Father.

2. My daughter has been my primary focus and even with her going to college this will continue. I want someone who respects that and knows it doesn’t diminish anything I could have with them.

3. Same goes with family and close friends, but I would make it clear to family and friends that my relationship is PRIORITY.

4. He has to have a sense of humor. Making me laugh is a way to my heart. It can be a joke that on…

FROM A BLACK MAN’S PERSPECTIVE: WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A BLACK WOMAN TO GIVE ME WHAT I NEED WHEN THE OTHER RACES ARE SO WILLING? (THE REMIX!)

Okay so I just got called out. Alright you asked for it so you got it!! Hell yes there is something wrong when my brother feels I can’t love him. You asked for it. I was visiting a good friend and I witnessed her completely emasculate her husband right in front of me. She might as well have had a scalpel. ‘Cause he got circumcised that day! He was sooo damn embarrassed that he said nothing.

Fast forward three (3) years and he was gone! Was I surprised by the divorce? Who would have been? We sing the songs; we talk the talk, but it doesn’t happen. “Let me cater to you. ‘Cause baby this is your day. Do anything for my man. Baby you blow me away.” I think most black men would fall out if it happened. lol

Damn, this is not easy to write! What do you want baby? Do I need to truly cater to you? Do I need to have the house clean when you come home? Do I need your dinner cooked when you come from work? Do I need to give you some lovin’ when and how you like it? Maybe I need to do it all. I gu…

FROM A BLACK MAN’S PERSPECTIVE: WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A BLACK WOMAN TO GIVE ME WHAT I NEED WHEN THE OTHER RACES ARE SO WILLING?

I’m going to throw caution to the wind on this one. lol My reaction was WOW when my friend said this to me. He wasn’t speaking for all men, but he did speak for a lot! Not that I’m saying I’m advocate for interracial relationships (nor even the poster child), but I am simply a proponent of love. There is truth to the old adage, “You love who you love.”

One of the most serious relationships I ever had was with a man older than my parents. And yes he was white. More important and significant is the fact that he loved me. He loved me at a time when I didn’t feel so lovable. I was coming out of a failed marriage and had lost all my confidence. Somehow he saw me in a way I couldn’t see myself. The most touching thing he ever did was dropping everything to see about me. He was a successful businessman, and his time really was his money. I’ve never forgotten that. There’s something about someone who loves you enough to make you a priority.

Maybe that’s the real issue? Not that women of a dif…

I can't let go...I can't control my love for you. I don't have any reasoning to why I feel this way. I just do.

WHAT HAPPENED TO “THE FAMILY”?

Have we become desensitized? Have we been programmed to think that a traditional family is out of reach? Being a product of divorce; my ideas of a family may be different from most. Why is being raised in a single-parent home the norm? The Black Family is becoming extinct. It’s almost a misnomer to put those two words together. When you find yourself in this sort of a hole, someone once said, the first thing to do is stop digging.

We’ve become so fixated on being a couple; finding a relationship; that we don’t think about being a family. I don’t have a traditional family, but I did start out wanting that and striving for that goal. When you involve children the goal should be to have a two-parent home. Every child deserves to have a Mother and Father. We’ve become so disillusioned about what a family is; marriage; that most women are encouraged to pursue career aspirations, and discouraged to marry or let alone become pregnant. We are penalized in our careers for becoming pregnant or …
