A Social Issue Slam Poem, Submitted by David Singleten
A note from the poet: David Singleten
"I am a youth worker, and I work with teenage girls who chase after guys that treat them like trash. This is an appeal to people who need to escape their relationships because the person they are with doesn't really love them. "
Digital Poet's take on this poem:
This is a great slam poem / spoken word piece that acts as a message to women who are in...well, I'll just call them bad relationships. Truth be told, love can be a pretty profound social issue. It leads to so many other mental issues - depression, confusion, mistrust...the list goes on.
David does a bold job of addressing this issue, and I'm proud to post it on my site. If you like his piece, check out the links below and you can check him out on social media. You can also download the audio for this piece on soundcloud.

If you like this spoken word piece, I also urge you to check out my slam poem entitled Cricket Calls. I've performed this poem live before and it's an audience fave.
David, I'm right there with you man. Women need to be treated with more respect than they get in today's society. Thanks for sharing this.
"He Don't Really Love You"
He don't really love you,
He don't really care,
His eyes is on your thighs
While he lies up in your ear,
and those lies they paint a picture
of a dream that isn't real,
and you feel that it's a lie
But at least it makes you feel,
and you love it when he feels you,
his touch is something real true,
And the way it makes you feel
Man without it it might kill you,
So you do whatever just to keep it from your rearview,
And you cling hard to make sure he stays near you,
But he don't want to stay,
He just wants to go,
He's gotten what he's wanted stealing pieces of your soul,
and he's only coming back,
when he wants a little more,
And your death is in his stare
But, you won't let him go,
No you won't let him go,
Wake up from your day dream princess,
Because this isn't a dream,
but a nightmare,
He's not a prince,
but a wolf,
So be quite scared,
And I'm sorry to say this
But this wolf doesn't fight fair,
And if you offer your heart,
You should expect bite there
And If you stay with him
You should expect to die there,
Yeah you should expect to die there...
