Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Soul Mate

Took me 10 years to realize,
She was the only one for me in my eyes.

Her classifications were infinate,
The steez were right and
skin dark and rich.
She could never say more than friends,
When I ment lovers to the end.

After the prime of my youth could I,
Tell her the whole and entire truth.

Even then I always seemed
to be too late,
When I asked her to be my partner
through life's jouneys
she said she already had a date.

Damn it hurt me to hear those words,
But happiness came when I put her first.
