Dark as Midnight,
but with a aura that radiates like sun.
100 watt smile, must have seen it from a mile,
& knew right then within my heart
she was the one!
Her essence had beautiful Black Queen
illuminating from its core.
I seen her once, maybe twice, & the third time..?
I was like a dope fiend, cuz I was fiending
Cuz, she was a beautiful black book!,
with gold trimmings that I yearn to read.
Wanted to know her story...every page & understand
this exquisite Black Queen.
Be engulfed by her beauty & words,
as we manifest to one another.
They say beauty is only skin deep,
but I swear she was like no other!
Never seen such beauty & perfection since
my existence on this earth.
Thought she was a rare Black Diamond...
& I was compel to know her worth!
Uncomprehendable, surely this creature had to
be a Angel!
But, her presence was mystic & she left
me with no angle.
On, how to reach her heart?, how to reach her mind?
Two elements from the same person entwined!
But, the truth of the mater is, she'll never be mines.
So from a distance, I look & yearn for the opportunity
to get to know this cutie.
& no, I didn't want her body...I just wanted to know this
