Lil Wayne wanted to go to the NBA playoff game Thursday night and the Oklahoma City Thunder said no.
"Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs," Wayne tweeted just hours before tip-off.
It was Young Money President Mack Maine who tried to score the tickets through a broker, but securing the seats proved to be difficult. "He finally just let me know, they not really tryin' to sell tickets to him," Mack Maine told MTV News minutes after the playoff game ended. "They said they'll give him some tickets on the front row behind, but they're not really tryin' to have him sittin' courtside."
Then things got even weirder Mack, told MTV. "Then they also sent a message back sayin' the OKC policy was no special parking and no escort, so he gotta walk in like everybody else," he explained. "Why would you actually want to cause pandemonium? That's gonna make it harder for your security."

Brian Banks will get a chance at the NFL after all, even if it’s simply a tryout.
The Seattle Seahawks confirmed Wednesday they will hold a tryout for Banks, a former high school football star who was exonerated last week in a California rape case in which he was falsely accused.
The team confirmed that Banks will work out for the team on June 7.
“This is what I have dreamed about my entire life,” Banks said in a statement from the California Western School of Law, home of the California Innocence Project. “I am ready to show the NFL what I am capable of doing. I want as many opportunities with as many NFL teams who are willing to give me a shot.”
Seattle may not be the only team. The statement says a half-dozen NFL teams have gotten in contact with Banks, and ESPN.com reported some of those include the Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins.
Gucci Mane just lost a $270,000 battle in court after a jewelry company in Georgia sued the rapper for not paying for his diamonds.
A&A Diamonds retained attorney Vivian Uchitel to file the lawsuit in Henry County, claiming it loaned the rapper a $130,000 diamond pinky ring in addition to a diamond necklace and bracelet worth $110,000.
Gucci had 15 days to pay for the goods or return them and he did neither then he gave them only $40,000.
A&A sued for a total of $274,523.34 the $200,000 jewelry balance plus interest and attorneys' fees.
Gucci never showed up in court, so a default judgment was entered against him. A lien was then placed on the rapper's property.

NBA legend Allen Iverson wants his arrested for ransacking his house while he was out of the country.
A.I. filed a motion for contempt in Georgia against his estranged wife Tawanna Iverson, claiming he had a basketball game in Asia earlier this month and when he returned home, his house was totally gutted.
Iverson's wife infiltrated his home while he was gone pillaging furniture, art, memorabilia and taking a large sum of cash.
Iverson says he's asked Tawanna several times to return the stuff but so far, she's refused. Tawannna and A.I. have been at war since she filed for divorce last year. Last month she requested a restraining order, claiming her ex was harassing and threatening her.
A.I. wants a judge to hold Tawanna in contempt for harassing him and throw her in jail at least until she returns the stolen goods. He also wants an order barring her from entering the home.
The judge has yet to rule
In a bizarre blog post, the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention released an article titled, 101: Zombie Apocalypse."
"There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for," the post reads. "Take a zombie apocalypse for example. You may laugh now, but when it happens you'll be happy you read this, and maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency."
The post was written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan and describes how to survive when faced against "flesh-eating zombies"
"First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house," the post continues. "This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored)."
The idea behind the campaign stemmed from concerns of radiation fears following the earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan in March. CDC spokesman Dave Daigle told FoxNews.com that someone had asked CDC officials if zombies would be a concern due to radiation fears in Japan and traffic spiked following that mention.
"It's kind of a tongue-in-cheek campaign," Daigle said Wednesday. "We were talking about hurricane preparedness and someone bemoaned that we kept putting out the same messages."
While metrics for the post are not yet available, Daigle said it has become the most popular CDC blog entry in just two days.
"People are so tuned into zombies," he said. "People are really dialed in on zombies. The idea is we're reaching an audience or a segment we'd never reach with typical messages."
Shyne Seeks 25,000 Signatures for Petition to Re-Enter U.S.
Since his release from prison in 2009 the former Bad Boy rapper has been living in his native Belize.
He is attempting to return to America...with the help of 25,000 fans.
The Belize native, who changed his name to Moses Michael Levi after converting to Judaism while in prison, has created a petition via the White House's official website to be granted a new visa. The petition asks for 25,000 signatures by June 15.
Shyne was released from jail in 2009 after serving eight years for attempted murder and assault stemming from his involvement in the infamous 1999 Club New York shooting. Though he did his time in New York, he was deported from the country upon his release.
Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has walked off her new TV show, Tyler Perry’s "For Better or Worse". Still dealing with the death of her superstar mother, Bobbi Kristina quit the TBS comedy, sources close to the production tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Her recurring role was announced less than a month ago. “She thought she was ready for this, but she wasn’t,” one source told RadarOnline.com.
Bobbi Kristina is still filming her reality TV show for Lifetime, which the source says is less taxing on her and also features other members of Whitney’s extended family.
“Bobbi Kristina had a private breakdown and barely anyone saw it,” the source said. “She was crying and said she needed a minute, she needed a break to get herself together. But then she decided she couldn’t handle doing the show right now. She’s still mourning her mom. She is confused right now,” another source told RadarOnline.com. “She is not prepared to live without her mom.”
She was able to finish filming her scenes, and the show actually wrapped filming for the whole season.

Jennifer Williams has announced in her blog post on her official website that she will be leaving ‘Basketball Wives’.
"It has been an epic season of Basketball Wives full of ups and downs, backstabbing, fallouts amongst friends, and assault and battery along with some tears. More than enough drama for me. I can definitely say with pure pleasure I am happy to see this season come to an end.
During the first two seasons of the show, I was dealing with the dissolution of my marriage and having it played out for all our viewers to see. It was difficult and hurtful to keep reliving those moments every time the show aired. This season I was dealing with yet another failed relationship with a former friend. I never really had to deal with too much female drama in my life. My friends that are close to me have been in my life for years and I have recently met amazing friends that really hold me down. So, with two failed relationships in the past two years I decided to take a look at myself, the common denominator.
Through the process of self-examination, although I strive for perfection (probably the Virgo in me), I realized I am far from it. I have flaws, I make mistakes, and all I can do is learn from them and because of this platform ideally others can to. Divorce was something I never wanted, but I came to grips that I couldn’t change my husband. My husband could only change himself. My parents are divorced and I now see how their failed marriage and my father’s infidelity have affected my entire family. My parents were married for over 30 years and have zero communication, it pains me to see them so distant and I resent my father for this. These are all struggles I deal with still to this day and profoundly affect my views on my relationships.
As far as my friends go, I will do anything within my means for my friends. When I think about honor and respect, those words run parallel with friends to me. Sometimes we don’t always want to hear our friend’s honest opinion, but I am always going to give my honest opinion. Everybody can’t handle it, however I also know that I have been guilty of only wanting to hear what I think is right as well. At times when I am dealing with difficult situations, stressed or depressed- I tend to shut down. My friends can’t reach me and I go into a shell. Overall, I am ride or die for my friends. With that being said, I in turn ask for respect and expect others to treat people the way they want to be treated. I sincerely apologize to any and all my friends if I did anything to hurt you intentionally or unintentionally.
In relation to the Basketball Wives cast, I feel some of the ladies who claimed to be my friend and claimed to be neutral made snide and slick remarks along with snickering about me. This proved to me that they indeed were not at all neutral. This season for me seemed no matter what I did it wasn’t going to be right, so I stopped trying. Tahiti was the last straw for me, we were half way around the world and I didn’t go there to argue or fight. I just wanted peace, but soon realized that wasn’t going to happen unless I was secluded from those that were determined to argue and fight. Arguing with former friends, slinging dirt back and forth was something I could have done in Miami not there. And what ever happened to the “G Code”? Whether the validity of things being said about me was true or false, as a friend there are certain things I would NEVER do. If you tell me something in confidence friend or foe, whether I don’t speak to you 20 years from now I will respect that and you will never have to worry about me repeating a word. The funny thing about arguing is choosing your words wisely because you can never take them back especially with millions of viewers watching. Although I have been through a number of emotions regarding my friendship with Evelyn dissolving, I have not and will not participate in the mud slinging. Over 10 years we have shared good times, bad times, marriages, engagements, break ups, moving, vacations, holidays together, wins, loses and much more. As we all have witnessed before, unfortunately our relationship has not survived the pressures and effects of a reality show and all that comes with it. As difficult and hurtful as it may be, I will continue to be resolute with my decision to respect what our friendship was and not where is has gone.
Even though this has been a trying season, I hope at some point my cast mates can get along and be civil with one another. I will always appreciate Basketball Wives Season 4 and this time in my life for the abundant lessons learned and personal growth I was forced to face. We all have our own individual imperfections, but I also believe we all have a good heart. As women of color it is important we uplift and support one another. I wish all my cast mates continued success and best wishes with their future endeavors.
Thank you to all my family and friends and loyal supporters for all the love during this trying season. Please continue to support me and my current (www.lucidcosmetics.com) and future business ventures.
Many hugs and kisses,
Good luck with your Four Colors
Watch Jay-Z & Kanye West’s “No Church In The Wild,” directed by Roman Gavras.
Paul "The Punisher" Williams picked up three belts so far in his career and now his greatest battle yet recovering from an accident which left him paralyzed.
After a Sunday morning motorcycle crash near Atlanta, Williams was left paralyzed from the waist down.
Manager George Peterson told News 12 that he’s in the hospital with a surgery scheduled for Wednesday. That surgery will help to stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.
Peterson said Williams went off the road trying to avoid another vehicle and was thrown from his motorcycle. He’s conscious and alert in an Atlanta hospital, and his manager said his positive attitude is the same as it’s been throughout his 12-year pro boxing career.
Williams was scheduled to fight Saul Alvarez for the WBC Light Middleweight title Sept. 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Prayers go out to Paul and his family.

On The 6th Proudly Presents Artist On The Rise: Da Invisible Man
Da Invisible Man comes from Panama but grew up in the streets of NY. Take a minute and get to know this up and coming artist.
In his own words:
I am Da Invisble Man, CEO of Waterbearer Entertainment & Villain Trust productions.
I got my start many years ago being a part of a super group named the Pentagon, or the Gon (Getting Organized Now). It was a neighborhood crew that
started with just 5 members which grew into immaculate numbers.
We had a deal on the table with Mike Tyson's label but I ended up going to prison with a 25 year sentence. I received my time back, came home, graduated college and decided to pursue my dream of owning my own label.
After years of going through different avenues to get in the business I decided to do it myself. With the help of my business partner Shizza we were able to start our own companies.
My story is not much different from any other young black male growing up in America. I was born in Panama and grew up from East New York to Flatbush and all points in between. I grew up in a single parent home and raised in these mean streets. I sold drugs, robbed people and stole until I ended up in prison.
I had a knack for poetry and music but wasn't give the opportunity to express my talents. I learned to put my experiences in my music and told my story and wanted to share it with the world. My music is soothing to the soul and I wanted to give the world my life, the good the bad and the ugly.
My only regret is not taking my talents more serious years ago, while I was running the streets.
I just finished my mixtape "Black Hoody Season" hosted by one of NYC's Core DJ's, Dj Styles. It's available on Amazon, GooglePlay, Emusic, Spotify, Zune, Nokia, Rhapsody, Itunes.
Next I'm about to drop a solo project called "Da Memoirz" which is also hosted by Dj Styles.
So far one of my greatest accomplishments is graduating from College. I'm the first male in my family to do it. Also I'm proud of myself for starting up my own company when everyone was against me and saying I couldn't do it.
When I'm not making music, I'm interested in learning, reading, watching the Discovery channel. Also I enjoy being a father and just being a business man.
My ultimate goal in life is to set a foundation for my children and show them they could do anything they put their mind too. I also want to become a major force in the industry and to be able to live comfortably.
I like the fact I can make my own rules. I can meet new people and network as well as sell music and make fans along the way. It feels good to receive accolades for doing something positive.
Advice I have for those perusing their dreams and goals are to believe in yourself. Keep positive people around you and people who will encourage you to work hard and who will actually support your movement. Always try and keep a clear head and never allow negativity to enter your circle. Work hard, and put God first.

On The 6th Proudly Presents Artist On The Rise: Neo Pitso. An international star has been born, take a minute and get to know this up and coming superstar.
In his own words:
My name is Neo Pitso and I use this as my stage name as well. I started to get serious with rap music when I was about 12 years old. When I asked my pops for a pair of Levi's jeans. He got me a tupac CD instead and it was all systems go from there. I am 22 years old now but I can't really say I've been in the business for 10 years. I'm relatively new to the music industry.
I have no regrets everything I go through all become lessons.
At the moment I've just finished my pre-album. It's called "The Outlier" which was released on March 31st. For the rest of 2012 I plan on doing a lot of shows to get my name out there. I've already done about 11 shows this year, so hopefully I can do about 100 shows before the year is over. I'm also coming back to South Africa to visit so planning on doing some shows out there. One confirmed show will be in Mafikeng no dates yet though.
The real me is withdrawn and socially awkward but when I get on stage it's a totally different person. I can't explain it but I feel comfortable on stage. I'm that one kid at school who looks forward to oral presentations.
I am unsigned and undiscovered yet I've managed to support some major names in the industry like Jessica Mauboy, Tila Tequila, Montel Jordan, The Game, Nas, Chingy, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Cassidy, Dj Drama and Cassidy just to name a few. As an unsigned artist this to me is a great accomplishment and as a South African living in Australia it's even greater. I also just received an award from the Governor of South Australia a highly commended award for my accomplishments in the music field.
On my down time I enjoy Reading.
My ultimate goal in life is to make a meaningful impact on my generation with my music and to leave a lasting legacy in the music industry.
Two things that I like about the business, first that you make an impact on people with the music and second that you get to do what you love doing and get paid for it.
When I'm creating music I have no actual process to it. I Sometimes listen to other genres especially dubstep and electro. For some reason listening to these genres gets my creative juices going.
My greatest motivation is my will to become one of the greatest entertainers in my genre. I look up to people with incredible work ethic: Kanye, Michael Jackson, P. Diddy, Bruce Lee etc etc
If I never started doing music, I'd be in law school. I actually quit law school to do music.
Advice I have for those looking to pursue their dreams? Don't limit yourself or your dreams. When I was 13 I dreamt that one day I'd see Eminem live. 10 years later I finally did. Belief has put man on the moon and can do wonders for you too if followed by positive action.
I want people to remember Neo Pitso as the guy who strive for perfection and excellence in all he did. He was always the last to bed and the first rise.

Tip announced recently that he'll be releasing his second novel "Trouble & Triumph: A Novel of Power & Beauty" in September.
"Trouble & Triumph" will follow the stories of the characters "Power and Beauty", whom T.I. introduced in his first novel Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets, released last October. Both novels were co-written by David Ritz.
Tip first got into fiction writing while locked up for a probation violation in 2010 and 2011. As far as prison habits go, there are certainly worst ones to cling to.
"Trouble & Triumph" hits stores September 11.
Flavor Flav is behind on his child support payments to his baby mama in Albany, NY for around $111,186 which has him now facing a prison sentence of 180 days.
Under a support agreement, Flav is required to pay $837.72 a week to Angie Parker to support the couple’s three children.
Flav failed to show up for a court hearing this week, says the NY Daily News, so an Albany County magistrate recommended the jail sentence and revoking his driver’s license and passport.
He must appear in Albany Family Court on June 19

Chris Brown just released his Polow Da Don-produced “Sweet Love” video. In the self-directed video, Brown bares his tattoo-covered chest, makes women levitate out of their beds and breaks into some sexual choreography. Chris’ fifth album, "Fortune" arrives on July 3rd.
Phaedra Parks is suing Vibe Magazine after it published an interview with Angela Stanton. Stanton wrote a book, “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil…” claiming Parks was involved in all sorts of illegal activity including fraud. Though Angela Stanton’s tell all didn’t impact as hard as Karrine “Superhead” Steffans‘ Confessions of a Video Vixen, Parks has maintained every detail printed in the book is a lie.
Phaedra alleges in court documents Vibe Magazine published and promoted Stanton’s false and defamatory accusations on the Internet, and as a direct result, Stanton’s personal and unfounded vendetta against plaintiff went viral on the Internet. The false statements published by defendant are defamatory per se and damages to the reputation of Plaintiff are presumed as a matter of law.
Phaedra Parks is seeking $5 million in compensatory damages along with $25 million in punitive damages, payment for court fees, and a printed retraction from the magazine.
If everything in this book is untrue why is Phaedra going this hard? Something doesn’t sound right. Hold your head, Vibe!
New York Knicks star J.R. Smith was arrested in South Beach last night after cops discovered he was a wanted man.

Smith was booked into Miami-Dade County jail shortly before midnight. He was released a short time later on bond.

With President Barack Obama now firmly on the "Pro" side of the gay marriage debate, Jay-Z to Janet Jackson have been publicly coming forward to express solidarity with the commander in chief on the controversial issue. In a recent interview with DJ Drama, rising star Kendrick Lamar expressed in no uncertain terms his belief in the right of gays to marry.
"I don’t give a fuck about people doing what they gotta do. That’s your lifestyle, you dig what I’m saying?" he said. "People gonna be they own individuals and have they own worlds and I can’t knock it."
"If you didn’t believe in Jesus I can’t knock you for not [believing], you got your own beliefs and your own morals. I can’t help the way you was born if you was gay. And I can’t change that so do what you gotta do to be happy.”
Lamar is working on his major label debut, "Good Kid in a Mad City", due later this year.
Reverend Marvin Winans should not have been driving when he was carjacked last week because his license was suspended.
He is a wanted man with an active warrant out for his arrest, this according to DetroitNews.com.
Marvin whose family members are gospel music legends, lost his driving privileges after failing to pay 2 tickets one for impeding traffic and the other from a previous driving on a suspended license incident.
After missing his court date, a judge issued a warrant for Marvin's arrest one day before Winans was carjacked at a Detroit gas station.
His representative released a statement saying, "The issue is being addressed ... A lot of that is handled by his administrative team, not by him."
After countless subliminals between both Pusha T and Drake over the last year, Lil Wayne steps up to the plate in defense of his artist. "Fuk pusha t and anybody that love em," tweeted Lil Tunechi last night after Push A Ton's latest track, "Exodus 23:1," thought to contain shots at Drizzy, started making the Internet rounds.
The irony of this move by the YMCMB general is that he and the Clipse have had disagreements
Pusha T has claimed on numerous occasions after Wayne was released from jail in November '10 that their differences have been settled since.
The source of disrespect stems from the "It's Good" record, which included direct shots at Jay-Z . Drake admitted in an interview with Funkmaster Flex during his "Take Care" promo run that he was aware of Wayne's actions and didn't have a problem with them. Depending on who you ask, Drake's opening bars on the record can be interpreted as shots as well. He recites lyrics which claim certain rappers have gotten "too comfy" in this game. It can be argued the alliance against "The Throne" was formed then. According to BET, Drake made it clear that he understood there was a competition that existed between both Wayne and Hov.
Pusha stepped to the plate to address Drake via his "Dreams Money Can Buy" and "Sweet" freestyles. One of Pusha's more memorable direct subliminals was featured on the "Dreams Money Can Buy" freestyle, where he says "Rappers on their sophomores, actin' like they boss lords/Fame such a funny thing for sure when n—as start believing all those encores."
This brings us to Pusha's "Exodus 23:1" record from last night. He returned to throwing shots at the Canadian rapper with The-Dream riding shotgun.
Who's going to win this battle?
"OK HERE WE GO!!! AGAIN, THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT.
First things first…HOW OLD ARE WE? No, seriously…I’m not saying I’m perfect but even I (the one who cries in the park with her father) didn’t find it funny to put dead fish in someone’s room. One could understand (kinda) if we were in high school, even college, to hide eggs in someone’s locker or dorm room as a ritual for a freshman or neophyte member of the cheerleading squad or dance team. But to take chum into a five-star RESORT bungalow and hide it in places even the housekeepers wouldn’t be able to clean is ignorant and disrespectful. Not disrespectful to Kenya alone but to the island as well as the resort. It was tasteless and nothing anyone can say will make that situation “funny” or okay. My father owns and runs a travel agency, and when he saw that, he was embarrassed. I’m just thinking about how much money was spent on that cleanup and not one of them gave a damn because it wasn’t on their dime. Some things aren’t meant to leave the movies. Some things aren’t meant to be done in real life. But I digress because maybe my sense of humor is different than theirs or maybe I just simply grew up in that part of life. Maybe it’s just me but if you were THAT BORED in TAHITI…yes TAHITI, then maybe you should’ve gone in your bungalow on the ocean and read a book like Kenya was doing before she admitted to y’all she was low-key crazy… :shoulder shrug: (Sidebar: I am shocked she didn’t notice the stench, or maybe she just thought it was supposed to smell like that.)
Secondly…what happened to the friend code? Evelyn, I understand you being hurt…really, I do…But, how do you sit on a boat and express how you’ve never dished any of Jenn’s business because you have loyalty, then question hers? I’m sure you see where I’m going with this. At no point has Jenn ever aired your dirty laundry specifically. Sure, she’s mentioned she knows a lot but has never said anything. It’s disturbing how you all can be “friends” for so long, then you mention how fake she is, that’s she’s basically “loose” <-(using Kenya's term since it sounds better) and then state specific incidents. I haven't known either of these women beyond 2.5 years so I cant say how deep their friendship was but I will be DAMNED if I ever air any of my friends or former friends BIZ-NESS...especially when cameras are rolling. Word of advice. If you ever have hopes of mending a broken friendship, divulging information given to you in confidence because you're angry doesn't make the situation better...it makes it worse and it also makes your CURRENT FRIENDS question ANYTHING they ever tell you in the future. For future reference here's a quick definition of the friend code I found...I kinda thought it was common sense, but common sense isn't so common anymore: Best Friend Code Used when talking to your best friend. When this code is enforced it keeps the knowledge from going to a third party. Best Friend Code can be enforced in any of this situations(since people can barely keep there mouths shut now days) i.e. dishing on boyfriends, talking about other disliked friends, talking about your best friends slut of a girlfriend…. Lastly, being the youngest in the cast, even I knew not to take my a** overseas for a drama retreat when it seemed as if the only purpose was to pour salt on open wounds. It would be different if it was a true retreat to bond and get to know each other better. It would be different if it was to genuinely mend broken friendships. If would even be different if all members of this cast could come together and coexist. It would be different if we could debate and discuss our differences then agree to disagree if we didn’t come to a common ground. But instead it seems as if it was a moment to scream, yell, play pranks, cry, and see who could stay on the in the beautiful island of Tahiti the longest like they’re on the Bad Girls Club (over 30 edition). I’m outtie!!!"

Allen Iverson’s original Reebok Question re-launches this Friday, May 25th for the first time since 1996.
Iverson recently talked with Sports Illustrated and said he is not retired yet. “I’ve accepted the fact the NBA may not happen, but I still want to play basketball. If I can get an opportunity to where it’s gonna make me happy at the end of my career, I’ll take that opportunity.”
Check out the official video for “Work Hard, Play Hard” from Wiz Khalifa’s upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C..
T-Boz might be forced to travel in the passenger side of her best friend's ride, cause Honda is going to repossess the singers car.
Tionne Watkins is being sued by Honda for failing to make payments on her 2005 Honda Odyssey.
Honda asked the judge for the green light to take the car back. It's unclear how much T-Boz owes in back payments. She filed for bankruptcy back in 2011 but failed to complete the required paperwork and lost the protection bankruptcy provides. There's nothing stopping T-Boz's creditors from coming after all of her possessions.

Actress Malika Haqq is featured as a guest editor for the digital publication, "FEARLESS". The television personality shares her excitement for the second season of E!’s Khloe & Lamar, thanks her fans & supporters and includes some motivating/positive words for readers to live by.
After two children and seven years of marriage, actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker are still going strong! Boris partnered up with Essence.com and surprised Nicole with a beautiful poem entitled, ‘My Seven Year Itch.’
"MY SEVEN YEAR ITCH
You’ve always been my itch, so many ways you’ve touched my body, mind and soul from the moment He designed our paths to cross, finally.
You’ve always been my itch, so good to me I’ve wanted you day after day, night after night, making me wonder how my body was able to be without you all this while, before our very first touch…
You’ve always been my itch, giving wings to my thoughts, encouraging them to unforeseen heights, where I would build our castle in the sky, fit for a king and his queen.
You’ve always been my itch, filling my spirit with comfort and peace like I hadn’t felt since a child in Oma’s garden, so familiar and yet so new.
You’ve always been my itch. My seven year, seven days a week, 24/7 itch I always want, desire, crave, and never ever want to be without.
Not for seven seconds.
Happy 7th anniversary
Let’s do this again
I love you more"
