Art of Seduction
There is something about her eyes;
Like the iridescent wings of a dragonfly they glisten
With immaculate purpose they rove like skirts
Like the painting brush they send shivers down my visceral bones
In utmost tremble I stand before her.
There is something about her lips;
As tasty as Nature’s nectar
Like tender roses they attract every man’s attention
In a dazzling style of the stars they hypnotized me in her presence.
There is something about her smiles;
In the presence of her smiles the strongest heart melts
Lovers are bewitched by the golden luminosity her smiles glow
With her smiles she has warriors quaking in their boots
Her smiles can unite warring neighbours into a common land
Ocean flow in uncommon currents in expression of ritual obeisance to her smiles
Her smiles bring heaven’s fountain showering its uncommon love on lost loves
Before her my yearning soul stands.
There is something about her hair;
As long as River Nile
One of the Archetypes of an African goddess
With cascading waves flowing down in great feminine aura
Over her head a halo hovers
In absolute obsession I admire the beauty Mother Nature bestows on her.
Inspired by Justin Bordner's The Heart Of Seduction contest.
