Love In Progress

By Joy Lynn Clark

Tuesday, June 8, 2021

In the beginning of the year I chose to make a lot of changes in my life. Last year sucked so bad that all I could do was do things completely differently. First off, I let go of my studio lease. I got tired of driving all the way to Louisville and, my studio was near this heating duct that was just ringing constantly. -the noise was getting into all of my half assed stuff that I made.

Next, I chose to reach out to some of my old friends that I haven’t spoken to in a while. Thirdly, after crying my eyes out over two trips I decided to bang this other guy who was kind of depressing but we did use condoms. OK that last part made me realize what I am looking for in a partner.

Love and commitment.

After not having to pay two rents, I realized maybe I could save money. Hell, I could buy a house and have a home studio.

Then I thought about my lovers and I realize that if they want what I want and I am going to need a commitment. I am so tired of being single and I’m also tired of living in an apartment.

So I started this real estate class online. And I also Put away a little cash and I’m planning to put away a little more. I expect love to take some time, kind of like saving up to buy a new home.

So here’s a crappy ass song that I made in my apartment which is A better, although not finished or mastered version of don’t turn me off.

Don’t Turn Me Off By Joy Lynn V2

You want to give me babies

Yet this is new

Let you sow your seed

Just to get with you

Let me let you know

That I’m a prostitute

And you got to have dough

For me to mess with you

And You want this thang

Well I know that’s true

Got to be big

For me to get with you

I’m really not a ho

I’m just messing with you

I’ve got to call my Fam

There’s so much to do


Don’t turn me off

So you can get quiet

Wanna make some noise

Don’t turn me off

We can get down

Don’t turn me off

Wanna make some noise


So let’s get married

You can seed it up

But Imma Need that ring

Before you beat it up

Ain’t Got condoms

For my husband to be

Get this thing for life

Just for messing with me

This is new

But I’m so in love

Just hit me right now

From God above

And we can leave this room

And go to my crib

Get your stuff

Because you’re moving in


Don’t turn me off

So you Can get quiet

Wanna make some noise

Don’t turn me off

We can get down

Don’t turn me off

Wanna make some noise


I’ll be so glad

When my period is late

Going to have your baby

And I’m feeling great

And I know you can

Afford to buy us a house

Because you’ve got that thing

I can’t be with out
