African woman
Renewed — it is like breathing;
I have to do it: write lest these inspirational words deter my Muse.

The way your beautiful eyes smile at me and your smile draws me…
You draw a picture of an unknown world (and) I belong to it.

I may not know where these winds came from and where they are going,
(But) believe me when I tell that I am able to feel it.

Mellifluous is your name as we move to your heartbeats.

For you seem like the other side of me which at creation was lost.
You are a kingdom that I will conquer at all cost.

You are the part of me poetry speaks of — beauty’s reflection…
I cannot stop thinking about you.

The harder I try,
The more the memories of you and I emerge that can’t be stopped.

Thus, I created a sound your heart can beat to.
Beats your feet may move to.

Words of romance that will move you.
African sounds, melodies, and rhythm ears haven’t heard of…
