Waiting to Exhale

Softly dressed in a black top to hinge 
Brown chinos skirt and beige watch 
Hair resplendent in curly full fringe 
With cute accessories to match 

Her voice rings out in a velvety tone 
“Obim oh, am gonna love you” 
Heart filled with sweetness so prone 

Her food rests on a meal of fish 
Fish prepared in diverse forms 
Its sauce slushed with peppery dish 
Mellowed by drinks, so fizzy they burn 

In her anger, she struts with a raging heat 
Her strides, pressured by a desire to excel 
Like the wind, filled with the beat 
Of many shoes and waiting to exhale
