$$ 3 _ Alicia Keys _ 3 $$


One day,
You told me
that i remind You of Her
and assured me
that that was good thing.

And i was graced
with the deliciously sweet
feeling of reflecting
Her eternal grandeur,
the look in Her eyes
as She poses for
photographers at the Grammys,
Her face flawless and dynamic,
Her body a series
of perfectly alluring curves.

i basked in the light
of Her fingers gracing the
slick black-and-white keys
that She named Herself after;
i erupted in joy at the thought
of my song and Hers in
total harmony.

i rejoiced thoroughly
at the prospect of being
beautiful to myself
inside and out,
for the very first time...
and then i found out
that You were a compulsive liar.
