Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!


You are the flame that burns the fire in my heart
You are like a cold glass of water on a hot summer day,
You overwhelm me with your intelligence
I am intrigued by the sweet things that you say.

When I met you for the first time
I really did not know what to say,
I have never met a man
That takes my breath away.

You have the sweetest disposition
You are wonderful with words,
You make me appreciate being a woman because
You say the sweetest things that I have ever heard.

To think of living my life without you
Is a little hard to swallow,
If I can't talk to you or see you
I cannot look forward to tomorrow.

I think of you constantly
Every moment that we are apart,
It is difficult not to think of the person
That holds the key to the treasure chest in my heart.
