Diamond Eyes - Poem by Kayode Are

She rolled heads with her eyes
Pulsating a dreamy look that promises more
Her pupils were almond but her thoughts diamond
Narrow until dilated by the world she eyes

She held them gaping with her luscious tan
Her oval lips thickly inviting a kiss
Posing a tapered hip in youthful bloom
And a grotto promising joyous swoon

Almond eyes wanted to see the world
Beyond an enclave torn by war and want
The wanton tour in tatters descend
As city lads bore her pristine crevice loose

Her innocence was not lost in the brutal war
In which most girls surrendered their youth
She lost her mango to pleasure touts
Trying to juggle life in permissive peace

She hurried back to the life she fled
Hoping to find everything frozen for her
The love she left behind she hoped to claim
Expecting all she banked on stayed the same

Diamond eyes still had the sultry look
But the once adored star had been eclipsed
A gloss on the stain, the wear, the tear
Not enough to gain back the love she had
