A mismatch for my charm

In the streets of Nairobi Is a hopeless place to find love I walked with a rather slow pace As I rummaged my eyes perplexingly through the parade of display windows Every commodity on display seemed of excellent quality and just as necessary The sun that morning had risen in a rather dusky manner And the dark clouds were feeble waiting to fall A girl approached in a distance with her long loose hair dancing behind her shoulders She was quick to spot She walked like a princess during her bridal party Perhaps you remember how Meghan Merkel did it A smile blossomed on her face Her height and weight were altogether on full balance My mind quickly shifted focus to her I wanted to watch her like a movie as she walked filled with integrity My heart stopped for a moment As mixed feelings stomped on it's floor I felt like it was being roasted in the full of fury flames of hell And a little bit like freezing in the cold ice at the peak of Everest I stood glued to the ground beneath me I can't remember exactly how long but it seemed like it was taking forever for her to reach where I was standing When the moment I had been waiting for came It seemed to pass as fast than I expected Even before I had mentioned a word Her boyfriend,I guess appeared from nowhere,grabbed her arm and they hugged and kissed My whole spirit sank below the ground I had my feet stuck on In the streets of Nairobi Is a hopeless place to find love
