White and Black

White says to Black:

"I think your very lovely."

Black says to White:

"O really? Then why do you sit above me?"

"What do you mean?"

White asks of Black

"You slide pass your hello and seem to grimace of a contact."

Black says

"O dear that's not true! I'm just busy throughout the day!"

White replies

"More like you're worried about what others would say..."

White grimaced at the words that Black had to say

"That not true! The times have changed!
And I do not worry of what others would say.
Its..its just that...you seem strong, without my hand to hold,
And you seem to be a color so rich and so bold."

Black smiles at White

and White smiles back

then Black asks

"Then why so long to interact?"

White lowers a head and looks up with eyes

"I did not know you would like a color such as mine."

Black laughs and says

"I should be asking that question!
But my dear White when we go to a bedroom and turn off the lights,
our colors won't be mentioned.


(white blush)
(black wink wink)


(lol i get silly when it's late :P
and I've been wanting to right an interracial couples poem for awhile
(especially since I'm in one)but! i just wanted a good fun one before any seriousness)

    Smile ~ Wonderful poem revealing a splendid sense of humor dear lady! "Hello Gifted & Lovely Jessica Arteaga!" ~ And "Yes," I love the thoughts which Your talents and heart seem to bring about here; one being that, love or relationships or relations should never build walls; that they may never be and or evolve!? Smile, did I get close? Lovely poem dear! "Much Warmth & Love Always," John!:) ~ Smile, let us go view one more....
