The Definition Of A Real Woman

(W)- A real woman knows that the wages of sin is death so she is not concerned about the wages of a real man, because money comes and goes like day and night; but true love comes just every blue moon. A real woman isn't loud and doesn't have to be the center of attention. Money is a gold-diggers virtue, while patience is a real woman’s virtue. A real woman is always wary of the image she displays to the world because she knows her children are watching her every move. A real woman’s wisdom comes from the teachings of her elders and the experiences and hardships life brings. A real woman is the wings that help a broken man learn to fly again. When you become the object of a real woman’s affection, winning is the only option.

(O)- A real woman’s main obligation is to better herself, before she attempts to become someone’s better half. A real woman is very obliged with all that God has blessed her with. When a man takes a real woman for granted, she makes up her mind to put him away into oblivion. A real woman is use to jumping hurdles because overcoming obstacles in life keeps her on the right track. A real woman doesn't spend her time worrying if failure is around the corner, because she occupies her freedom chasing her dreams in her most comfortable running shoes. A real woman is a hopeless romantic ready to be wooed with an odyssey of love with a real man by her side.

(M)- A real woman’s presence is magnanimous and captures attention because of the poised and elegant stature of her classy nature. A real woman is like the magnet of ecstasy. All women don't attend college or hold prestigious employment, but for many being the Valedictorian of mothers everywhere is the major of their lives. A real woman respects the art of marriage and believes in monogamy. A real woman’s life is the motion picture of sophistication. The mythology of a woman began within a man’s ribs and ends in the beat of his heart.

(A)- A real woman sticks to her man like glue and never abandons his side. A real woman has the ability to do anything a man can. A real woman has the power to fill the abyss of a man’s pains with joy. A real woman prays with her other half because faith is the key of remaining on one accord. A real woman will amaze you with the way she adapts to changes in her ambiance. A real woman is the architect of her own destiny.

(N) A real woman needs a man to understand and love her for everything she is and for everything she is not because a good support system is a leading factor in longevity within relationships. A real woman is the nexus between love and happiness. When you converse with a real woman you will realize that she is nimble with her every response. No man can ignore the nymph of a real woman, because it is in her D.N.A to be notable.

My Husband

My Husband!
My Husband is the man of my dreams, my fantasies, and so much more. He can take my breath away with just a whisper of things to come. I can’t help but look at him and think my husband; the man of my life, forever mine.
My husband looks and acts professional as he lectures to a large group of people. They seem to linger on his every word learning as much as possible in the allotted time with him. He is smart and well-dressed but underneath a wild side that I know so well is there waiting to come out.
My husband playing while kayaking; splashing like only best friends and lovers would do. A kid at heart he shares his lunch and takes pictures to show his friends. He wants the world to know how fun it was and we plan to go again. So proud am I of my husband, best friend, and lover.
My husband has helped so many of my dreams come true. If you can dream it, then you can do it he would say. As frustration came, he my husband and fantasy would rescue me. My husband set my dreams soaring high as together we found a place the world could never touch us!
My husband is my soul mate and so much more that words can’t describe. Nothing can take him from me; for out of my dreams and into my life made special for me, my husband is everything I could ever want or need. Drawn to him somehow night and day our hearts beat as one. Together nothing is impossible as we share a love and bond that not even in death will we part. Our souls will hold one another forever!

Let us don't do much together-We are old-
Lets lay around speaking our past lives into (Mind Movies).
Lets share pictures from our past and tell our stories to each other;
Only this time I'll be traveling with you.
When you get to that scary place I will hold you.
When Soji kidnapped me by Gunpoint,you will save me.
Lets Don't do much together. Your love be my intercessor
Lets just rehash the lives we lived apart, together!
We are old now, Lets make sparks fly every chance we get.
Let us eat exotic fruit and drink wine coolers in summer.
Let be as funky or as fresh as we want to be-
Lets shower together and bath separately.
I have to meditate on new episodes and
give you space during my bath-time.
I smell the incense burning in the next room,
I know you miss me, baths  are sacred 
I know you want me to hurry - baths can't be hurried.
You call my name. "write it down" I answer,
I will be there in awhile"
Soon I join you with a big cup of exotic tea.
Again I transpose myself into your old world.
I am there with you; My attention is all yours - 

Your eyes search mine,
checking to see if I am all in.
You know what you are about to tell me
requires my complete concentration.
you need me on this journey, this one defines
your character, your spirit - your essence.
I must sojourn with you into the depths of your soul
To the chaos that dis-functioned your dreams...
We hold each other and become one.
We sexually engage like an endangered species
for us there may be no tomorrow.
We sexually engage like there may be no tomorrow.
We are old folks caught in a young moment .
Like when you needed me and I was not there.
We continue not doing much together...
For we have caught up with some of that lost time.
I remember in the ( Mind Movie)
that you took me to a beach
where you lived and replaced her with me.
that cheating woman who nearly
destroyed your ability to feel.
She disappeared and..
Yes I got her part in your life's movie
I changed the lines -We shot that scene over.
then I lived it over with you like
some modern day goddess.
I am either here by your side
or right behind that bathroom door
requiring nothing of you.
loving the past out of you..
loving you into the future, but for now I  
am experiencing your aura -
Basking in your energy
and getting excited by your 
existence over and over again...
And when we are bored of doing nothing;
We can seek refuge in the rain forest-
Study healing herbs, or
Drink from the fountain of youth 
WE- rewrite our stories of poetry
from the movies downloaded in our minds.
And we shall grow youthfully old together
We remove old garments and dance 
Thus...The Beginning.. of our new lives
sponsored by loves second chance.

Within the sanctuary of my loving arms

Let the warmth of my warm
Tender loving arms
Sooth your cares away
To make you feel special
Needed Loved
Let me give an ear
for the things you want to say
A safe sanctuary
In which time stands still
and you can hide away.

The warm waves of  my love
Flow like a caressing tranquil sea
Let me express my deep emotion
Without word
and lose ourselves
In our world
No one else knows
Can travel too
Or be.

And as our hearts bloom
and flourish with so much joy
Like the smiling sun
Love is the greatest victory
When two hearts and minds
Are one.

Tell me the story of the sweetest love
That I see deep within your dreamy eyes
And no matter if I look at them a million times
still they always take me by surprise.

The wondrous vivid colours that I see
Awaken something  beyond words
deep within  inside me
That sometimes makes me cry
With joy and thanksgiving
Because  the biggest surprise
That I can see
That blows my mind
Is that you love a man like me.

Nottingham Goose Fair Girl

I journey from Sheffield town
to old  Nottingham's olde goose fair 
where the lights shone brightly
and there was music and laughter in the air.

My eyed were drawn to a pretty girl
with a twinkling eyes and long flaxen hair
among the crowd standing there.

oh pretty Nottingham  girl
as sweet as the blossom in spring
and as joyful as the nightingale that sings
As soon as I saw thee my hear ascended above
intoxicated by they beauty and charm
I fell in love.

We danced and flirted by the the minstral's music their
I stared into her twinkling eyes and stroked lovingly
her long flaxen hair.

We laughed and sang upon the fair rides
I could see the love shine from her twinkling eyes
I was so captivated by her son like smile
I wanted the moment to last forever instead if a while.

My soul had surrendered my heart was a flame
I fell deeply in love but didn't even know her name
I turned around for a moment
and she was no where to be seen
I screamed out and then awoke from a dream.

I turned around  and was so happy to see
the pretty young girl with twinkling eyes and flaxen hair now my wife
sleeping next to me.

Nottingham's goose fair is still held every year. I hate fairs, but like girls.

Deadly Love

(Dedicated to A.S.)

I heard once of a story
They say, heaven has become hell
And all the beautiful angels fell
Down to Earth, with their broken wings
Now only a shell of what they used to be
But we humans were not meant to see
The heavenly until our souls flew free
From those weak bodies we were in…
I was never made to breathe
The breath that comes through her soft lips
Never to kiss, those heavenly white cheeks
That ignited to a hint of red, every time our eyes met
I was never meant to hold her gentle figure
In an embrace, for she was my souls mirror
Those rivers that flow on my face
Were lost in an empty race with the rhythm in my chest
That played a calm melody, until it had to depart
I saw an angel, she stole my heart
She made my life worth living, and her leaving made it hard
We weren’t meant to love one another, so she left me scarred
I am just another lonely man, lost in misery 
Now heartless stuck in history
Writing these words of love, to the woman that killed me…

Dancing In The Olive Field

With your fragile soul in my arms
We move with the rhythm of our hearts
Side to side, left and right
We both feel love inside
For each other, for the sight
Of the setting sun, for your beautiful eyes
Where I see the reflection of the moon rise
As we are moving with the wind
So gentle, yet the entire world can feel
The passion which we carry when our bare feet
Slide across the land like a summer breeze
With your head on my chest, your hands in mine
We are dancing in the olive field…
With a sinful smile…
The scent of heaven reaches my tears
That travel across my face
Full of sorrow, that leaves
Like the autumn leafs
Waiting to be replaced by spring…
Like the happiness that you bring
When we are dancing in the olive field…
Side to side, left and right
Forever intertwined…with you my darling
As we…are dancing in the olive field…

Next To You

Saying all these things really make things right.
Acting just the same, on a different night.
Moving close to you, makes me feel so right.
A kiss on the cheek, really turns me on.
A touch on the lips, kind of sounds like fun..

Next to you..That's where I want to be, is..
Next to you.
I hope you're feeling fine, when I'm..
Next to you..
I'll be feeling just the same, when I'm..
Next to you.
Next to you.
Next to you...

Sounding off the gun, when we start the race..
Staring in your eyes, when I see your face.
Looking to the west, when the sun goes down.
Moving next to you, never makes me frown.
When we're holding hands, it really makes my day.
A kiss on the lips, only makes me stay..
Next to you..
That's where I want to be is..
Next to you..
I hope you're feeling fine, when I'm..
Next to you..
I'll be feeling just the same, when I'm...
Next to you.
Next to you.
Next to you..

You're Beautiful

Your smile, your skin tone...look at your hair
ha haaa...you're beautiful, yeah that's what you are
You're beautiful

You're beautiful oh ohhh...
You're beautiful
You're beautiful oh ohhh...

From the first time I laid eyes on you, I'm not gonna lie, I had to sweat cha...

it's so ironic how I get high off of just looking at you
...look at you
I'm on cloud number 9
a million years I thought it'd take me to find
someone so divine
but it's like I'm on planet Mars, it's like I'm riding with the stars
another galaxy...
that's what I feel when you're looking at me
let's put the world on pause, it's you and me forever
forget what they say...you and I sounds more clever
picket fence
green grass
your face
...let's make it last

'Oh My Bedroom'

It's the playground of love
Satisfaction you can trust
Nothing Feels The Way It Does
When You And Me Become Us

Your Body Yells Romance
Breathing Deep On Every Syllable
I'm Moving Like A Slow Jam
In Every Spot That I'm Kissing You

Sweat Dripping From Our Bodies
Like We Are Standing In The Rain
I Put Pressure On Your Passion
You Get Pleasure Out The Pain

It's Hot In Here It's Dark In Here
The Music Playing To Our Groove
The Thundering & Lightning Outside
Looks Like Sparks Flying In The Room

If These Walls Could Talk
They Would Say Two Things
We Moving Up & Down Like Elevators
Back & Forth Like Time Machines

It's Wonderful It's Paradise
All Day And All Night
You Don't Have To Say A Word
The Bedroom Knows What You Like....Oh My Bedroom!!

Lost and Found

To imagine after all this time that has gone by,
    I would be talking to the one that once caught my eye.
Out of nowhere one day she just seemed to appear,
   Just so incredibley surprising to me after all of these years.
Sharing all those thoughts and dreams we once had ,
   How we laughed at those days yet it made us a bit sad.
For the feelings I did not know she had for me ,
   It only makes me wonder what our lives would be.
Our hearts now beating as they did back in the days,
   How we are acting like children going out to play.
The love I feel for her has never felt so strong,
   A love that once was I thought was forever gone.
But to my excitement I can honestly & sincerely say ,
   The love that was lost has been found and here to stay.
This thing we have found in this love between you & me ,
   Joy and happiness for the rest of our lives is what I see.

I listen to you breathing
Where we lay here on the floor
Reveling in the afterglow
Bodies entwined; chests heaving

Your hand presses cool on my skin
Here in my arms where you rest
My fingers caress the lines of your back 
As the calmness starts to sink in

What sweet surrender we have met
Your leg pulled over mine
Our heartbeat dances in companion rhythm 
Our bodies glistening wet

I listen to your breathing
Where in my arms you lay
Content in what we've created
And a comfort undeceiving

My Sweet Indulgence

sail away with me my swet indulgence
where we can be alone
we'll paint our names in mid air
because with our love
we can do anything
we'll run together on mountain tops
we'll leap from the tallest hills
we'll dwell in the bottom of the sea
then emerge into space
my love..my lover...my sweet indulgence

Two hearts one soul
A love meant to be 

Cherish the love
God has chosen
For thee

In all things be true
To the one
Who loves you

Forget not
Life is about compromise 
This is a word to the wise

For each day is fleeting 
Moments you never get back

But if you cherish each moment
There is nothing you will lack

The Tiny Box Under The Tree

I could see the snow falling outside the window
As we cuddled on Christmas right near the tree
Drinking egg nog and watching our favorite shows on tv
Anxiously I couldn't help but wonder
What my sweetheart had wrapped up for me
He must have read my thoughts
Because suddenly he gave me a surprise gift
And immediately got on his knees

To see what my expression would be
Nervously I stood in shock
But couldn't wait to unwrap the gift
That was a very tiny box
To my amazement it immediately caught my eye
Sparkling and shining from the opened box
Stood a very large diamond ring
Just as beautiful as it could be

At that very same moment he then stood up
And said,  " Will you marry me?"
Without a doubt thrilled and excited
I immediately answered back with a yes
We then smiled and intimately embraced one another
Finally ending the night on Christmas was even more special
And one of my best Christmas holidays ever
Because I became newly engaged which was a gift like no other

Burning Passion turned Fire

Here comes the stormy fire,
Burned out my desire,
Racing against my chest, my hearts pacing,
Beating the pulse to a pulp, draining me dry,
Now’s the time to let go of this tandem rope,
Crash through this masquerade, there is no hope
Nobodies to blame, but myself,

It was all coming lose at the seams, piece by piece
The music was just too loud; the symphonies were burning my faith in hope
Nothing hurts like you do, walking away never giving me a second glance,
Pompeii, rain down on my parade, burn this farce of a show to cinders,
These ashes of our lives are like pythons underneath my every step,
Each sting a cry from my hearts to live again
Not saying goodbye was the cruelest act. 
No words of comfort or embrace to spare my arteries.

So now I am sitting here listening to the dragon that breathed our love,
Its dying a slow death.
 With every inhalation of this noxious gas, it only exacerbates the constriction on my lungs
Its evident to me that, love is dead.
Its all burned away, there is nothing left
There is no love left.
Love is dead.
Love is dead..
Is love dead?.....

hopeless Romantic

The sun is shining
just like your smile shines
I get butterflies
just at the thoughts of you
my heart skips a beat
just saying your name
we have our own song
I have a spring in my step
I am a hopeless romantic
to go along with your charm
Is this happening?
Or is it a dream?
this is so very real
for the first time
I feel so happy with you
I smile like a little girl
I feel like I am on clouds
let me keep your heart
close to my heart
the magic spell of your love
forever holds me close to you
the feelings never change
I pray you feel this way

Her Face

Her Face was perfection, Still see it everywhere
The beauty in her eyes, Please forgive my stare
Though to confess my love, 
Oh no, I wouldn't dare...
So I'll just keep thinking of her, But it's just not fair

Her Face won't go away, So engrained in my mind
This girl was different, Unlike any other I'll ever find
Oh how the two of us, 
How our lives could've aligned...
So now, to everyone else, My heart is blind

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face comforts me, Holds me tight and dear
Takes me to another world, A new frontier
I'm dreaming where she loves me so much, 
That part is clear...
But as I awake, Just shed another tear

Her Face and her love, I won't ever forget
Lust for her will remain, Lips will get wet
I'll be reminded of her, 
At each days sunset...
And I'll remember everything, From the first day we met

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face is the sunshine, A universal light
With it's soul and it's passion, It was quite a sight
Oh how just to see her, 
Brought me such delight...
But here I am all alone now, Another late night

Her Face will surely lift someone up, With unconditional love
So what will come of me, Can I rise above?
Without Her Face, 
I'm unsure thereof...
Because see, out of my mind, to her, I'll never shove

And she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face, I see it every night, In my dreams
Where everything will all align, Oh how it seems
We're walking together... 
Hands together, Along the forests blue streams

Her Face ignited feelings, Things I've never before felt
Just got to play the hand, The cruel hand I was dealt
I will always have my writing, 
To continue to dwell...
On a lost love to whom one day, I would've knelt

The Lonely Horseman

The lonely horseman of old rides down that long,
lonely road.
Kings and Queens lodge and entertain him for the night.
In the morning it is always the same,
the nobility watch him as he rides out through the palace's gates.
This handsome man rides to find his beautiful lady whom he has never
really seen, but this lady is forever haunting his dreams.
For now no false loves will he receive.
Until his search has come to an end, he continues to ride down that long, lonely road.

In the Faraway

After that day
I hear about you
in breaking dreams

they are like breaking news
for people
meant to be heard
only by me.
In Breaking Dreams
I hear you're living
in a stone tower
by the sea,

Alone, with nothing
lonely without us
yet in your world
lost and serene.

Cold in some cases
sad in others
the dreams support me
or get me drained.

In Breaking Dreams
you're reaching for me
After that day
you died on me.

Do They Know

I look at you and wonder,
I wonder if they know,
If they look beyond the show,
The ponytail afro,
the tatts, the kicks, the cloud of smoke, 
the smile, the eyes, the jawline, the stroke,
do they see you beyond the thoughts you provoke...
ummmm I wonder....do they really know.

How big your heart is,
how awesome you are,
a good friend, a good man, 
a rock, a star,

Genuine, unique, a man apart, 
right from the start, 
you're book and street smart.

A dope human being, 
I'm proud of you son, 
high-five ya mom and step-dad, 
on a job well done!

You might think it's too much, like I'm putting it on thick, 
but I promise you son, I keep it real, i keep it lit,
not riding yo ish, not built that way, 
shoot from the hip, the only way I play, 
so remember this day, you inspired me kid,
you win, so I write, and dust off my pen.

You give me hope, the future is not lost,
the youth has promise, you shine like a boss.

I see you, see me, with you I'm myself,
can't be captured by a camera, or measured by wealth.

you go out your way to help others, even stop what your doing,
to lend a hand to those in need when no one's looking,

so glad that I know you, an individual so true,
so glad that I know,  if they only knew.

You're the type of guy that turns the greatest into a fan,
yes I am the president, and you are the freakin man,

You're the type of friend you answer for in the middle of the night,
ride or die type of friend, you got that right, 
and if you ever ask the question, the answer is freakin right!!
Oh yea, all day, afternoon, and all night!!!!

For some lucky girl, you're a dream come true, 
Not perfect, but solid, dependable, that's just you.

If they only saw the layers, or the levels that I do,
if they only knew, or had a freakin clue.....

With a pen of iron it is inscribed,
In my heart, memories I fail to describe
Only heaven can unfold the mysteries it holds
I carry a lot in my embrace
You get, it will never be erased,
From your heart, as it never fades in mine
I love you and that’s no lie

Like a sweet aroma of a rose,
Your love greets me when I rise
‘’Wake up’’ no, I need not be told
Because am touched softly by its shine,
On my cheeks like a morning kiss
Oh, what a gift!
Precious and pure	
My life has found a cure

When I thought my life was defined by pain
When I couldn’t hide my tears in the rain
The heavens responded to my cry
And gave me love rare in mankind
The bitter waters that filled my emotional cup
Since then dried up
Nature wrote for me a new song
I dance from dusk to dawn
Oh, how I love the sound

Wholl Teach My Rigid Beloved Benevolence

 She lives there, 
across the stream
By the jungle-side.
She’s bathing in the broad shallow stream
Every day with cockcrow, 
in the village outskirts.
Her tall chubby body is wrapped up
And she pulls off her tight tunic
With toil.
Unknots her long curly hair
And sets her busty bosom free
And uncoil.
She’s is in high hurry since she’s very chaste
And seems scared in the desolate place.
Sitting in water washes first face
Then oh! Rubs her bust and her base.
Puts on her outfits— seeing sideways
Sitting on toes by the sandy shore.
And rushes home, water
Dripping her disheveled hair,
And dampened attire
Sticking her fat. 
She’s motherless, married to a helpless man,
A saintly farmer’s lone daughter, newly divorced.

Oh! Who’ll teach my rigid beloved benevolence!
 For, I would wed h’r too—if endorsed!

On Being Romantic

On Being Romantic

Hi, When you see this note, know that I am thinking of you.
Know that your heartbeat is in unison with mine.
My pulse is otherwise irregular but when with you,
it beats one beat in syncronicity with your regular one.
I feel like an adolescent again.
Falling in love for the first time.
Writing my first love letter
to a woman I thought would be my love forever.
Living in this world created for the insane.
That's where I belong.
Love knows no sanity.
One thing I know for sure is that;
there is something inside me 
that wants you and I to grow old and up together. 
There is something inside me 
that knows that you create in me 
the climate good enough for my growth 
and the growth of our little children.
It does not frighten to tell. 
It frightens to think. 
To think that when the sun sets,
we shall be apart. 
It pains to think that even when I have bled my heart 
to show my total surrender to your soul, I will be sleeping alone. 
You, like the morning star, shine in my life when it seems darkest. 
The days with you are a warm breeze on a winter's day. 
I will knock at your heart's door until you let me in.
It's cold out here.
I know I am male
Becoming a man
You make me chose 
Being a gentleman.

Secret Love

If only 
you read,
From the 
palm of my
The waiting 
would end,
I’d wake 
up again,
With no love
of regret,
No answer
to find,
No secret
to hide.

In the morning when I rise 

On Sundays watching the game with the guys 

At the table when I eat 

In the car bobbing to a beat 

At the job on the paper chase 

In a session with smoke in my face 

In the church listening to the Word 

In my notebook combining nouns and verbs 

In the gym while making baskets 

On the court hitting balls with rackets 

In my bed lying all alone 

On the field trying to reach the end zone 

At the bar buying a drink 

Under the stars just trying to think 

At the board ironing my clothes 

In the club throwing them boes 

At the house just trying to chill 

At Mama’s house enjoying a meal 

At the track kicking up dust 

On the corner catching the bus 

On the couch taking a nap 

In the circle trying to rap 

At the mall buying some shoes 

In the room feeling the blues 

On the porch staring up at the sky 

In the encyclopedia trying to find out why 

In the yard manning the grill 

Under the weather waiting to be healed 

In a boat pulling fish out the water 

Under the hood putting on a new starter 

On the side of the road fixing a flat tire 

On my knees saying prayers getting ready to retire 

In the kitchen cooking it up for my lady 

At Victoria’s Secret buying a gift for my baby 

With my boys bragging on my girl 

On the clock slaving just to give you the world 

But regardless where I’m at and regardless what I do 

The only thing constant is I always think of you

The Application

"The Application"
by:  Eric L. Boddie

Now what can I say
So many things seduce me
Faces, toes, booties, breasts
But most important, a strong inner Beauty

As for my dislikes
A female without Life
And by that I mean
A female who distances herself from Christ

That's the most prominent factor
Because we can work around the rest
If we allow God to combine our differences
We would have nothing less than the best

Under and agreement such as this, however
The flesh is still so very weak
But your ultimate level of satisfaction will be surpassed
God Blessed me, and, that's right, I'm a freak

Rather if you believe me or not
That is entirely up to you
You get pleasure to your mind, body, Soul and heart
The recipe that makes Love oh so true

Envy and jealousy will be avoided
Because there will be trust where our bond ties
And it will be there forever
Or until you show me otherwise

I'm Only Saying

I'm not asking you to make me your world
I only want to be part of it......
I don't need the biggest or brightest star named after me
But,I'd love to be the twinkle in your eye.
I don't want to rule a nation
Just hoping to be your Queen.
I'm not asking to be put first in your life
I'm asking not to be put last.
We don't have to have our own special song
But maybe one day you and I can live in harmony
You don't have to think of me 24hrs a day
But,I pray that I'm thought of a little each day.
You don't have to agree with everything I say
But, please respect me enough to listen.......

From a far, I was dazzled by your smile..
From a far, I was amused by that sweet laugh..
From a far, I was attracted to come over near..
From a far, You became the apple of eye..

Walking past a crowd of persons..
Eyes locked as I traverse to the path..
Beholding the gaze, unliking to break..
Excitement builds up, heartbeat thudding aloud...

Finally, We are face to face, unoicing the crowd..
Holding a quiet moment, staring underneath a smile..
I extend an arm, mindlessly falling to you..
Clamouring for your hand, squeezing polite...

Haywire, it might have been..
I do not care tor I haven't sin..
All attention focused fat not thin..
Mesmerized enjoying the romantic scene..
