Valentine Inspired Poetry.

For Wuraola Kayode Fagbamiye

Wura from the black soil - a winsome fairness
Unspeckled skin – sacred to the spectacles
Rays recollected in a feminine silhouette
All eyes can’t but slumber in the stupor of admiration
Oh! Are the orbs of YOURDescription: https://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png oval face moulded from the soil of the sun?
Let YOURDescription: https://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png lamp of love lighten the labyrinth of my heart
Accept prithee my poetic platonic proposal...

 I'm looking for her.
Is that her in the BRT -line?
With the bangles and high heels
Used to trek to gate now she take cabs
I don't want her 'cause she may post me
But I heard she just broke up
Her old guy, dulled up He drank too many seven-up
What type of drink you want girl?
I'm VODKA  forever
I'm JACKIE DAN  forever
You can come sit with me
If you'd like to change the weather
If you wanna live better
We can buy  a BQ, wherever
get too thirsty, get used to this cheddar
I'm going to tell the world about you just so they can get jealous
But, if you see her before I do tell her I wish that I've met her.
I'm looking for her too
I heard she'd keep her promises and never turn on you
I heard she won't cheat nor even make a move
I heard she be there anytime you need her, she come through
If you see her,
Send her my way
Tell her I've been looking for her in the broad day
Hanging with my dope goons in the hallways
And I know how to keep her, Oh!, maybe with just some iced-cakes
I'm looking for her too
I heard she got a pretty face and stand up like a stallion
I heard that she's a precious jewel, you treat her way better than medallions
I want to be the one to find out if I go to prowling
And if I get the number, you know I can't wait to dial it
And if we get together, girl, you know we'd always be chilly
And when we get together we make magic and it's ours
Whenever you up here there's nothing anybody can do about it- because
You think You're used but it's not true
You're a good girl
You've just been mislead
And now you're ready for the world
I want your energy
To take control of me
I've tried to go to sleep
And seen You in my dreams
Just in case I run across her today I'd just stay clean
Just in case you recognize her face, send her to me
And tell her I've been looking for her with a flashlight
You need not tell that ex-guy because I got my cash right
And only tell her if she honest and promise to stay true
Make sure, when you tell her, tell her we're going past the moon.
Deliver my message to Her soon.
