Jelly or Jam

by Nakia O. Mothershed & Zamounde

Did it stroke your hair or rub your feet
Did it satiate your mind
Was her kiss as sweet as mine
Jam like this is hard to find
Did it caress your taste buds
Did it fit your belly like a glove
When you put jelly on your bread
Was I running through your head
Was her skin as smooth as mine
I told you jam like this is hard to find
What glitters is not always gold
You get what you pay for
That's what I've been told
Jelly or jam?

I took this spoon to scoop
the contents of you
The smell of air perfumed
I chose to ask the question
Despite of myself
But I changed my direction
So that I could take you off the shelf
And spread you on my bread
Thick and beautiful
Smooth as usual
I remember when I almost dropped you
For a more artificial product
But I saw it for what it was
Fake sweetness
You are the true flavor that I long for
No need to go to the store for jelly
When there's jam at home for my belly
