Looks Can Be Deceiving
Outside of me, I look different,
yet in a sense I am the same.
Inside me I am confused,
and full of shame.
Outside of me, I am fearless,
bold and Conquering,
Inside of me, I am lost,
and steady wandering.
Outside of me, I attack those,
that try to deceive me.
Inside of me, I want love,
peace and harmony.
Outside of me, nothing matters, but
Inside of me,
My heart often shatters.
Outside of me, I am searching for something. but
Inside of me, I already possess it.
Held Captive By You
your words and inspiration
for they are like tender caresses,
on my brown skin,
your wisdom captivates my mind,
and your warmth, warms my heart
your astuteness mesmerizes me,
your creativity leaves me feeling enrapt.
you're a fascinating alluring being,
and I can't help but be enthralled by your presence.
