Before

Roses are red,lillies are white
And you are glamour,heavenly I’d say
From the visible veins on your masculine arms
The amazing hair on your head
Oh the voice…the deep voice
And the African touch on your skin tone
Angelic was all in my mouth
Immortal you were to me
Mortal men would say I had a crush on you

In public places i couldn’t stop but steal glances
Yes….at your refined version of man
You became my merit score
But I wish I’d known you before
Before you became immortal in my eyes
Before I knew the immoral part of you
Next time,I’ll leap before I jump
Just before…
