Aaliyah Dana Haughton (1979-2001).
I have been a fan of Aaliyah’s music for for over twenty years, and even though she has passed away, I can say that her music lives on.
Out of boredom recently, I tried to see if I could name up to ten Aaliyah songs, and from there I came up with this poem. The Aaliyah song titles are in bold lettering. Enjoy!
I keep asking myself, ‘Are you that somebody?’
I keep thinking, ‘How could the one I gave my heart to treat me this way?’
We just keep going back and forth.
The fact is that your love is one in a million,
Which is why I feel that we should try again,
To move this relationship forward, we need a resolution.
But if you don’t agree, I wouldn’t want to rock the boat.
I am more than you will ever need; I am more than a woman.
And, even though I miss you sometimes,
If this goes on, definitely, you won’t see me tonight.
