Peerless Beauty - Poem by Akinbode Oluwaseun
Voice sounding like the clarinet of water
Gentle as the evening breeze
Energy like that of the moon
Strong as the northeast storm.
I share with you
Not just my most awesome self
But also some of my life’s
Most precious memories
Our relationship runs deep
Right through my heart and soul
You have no idea how important
In my life, is your role
I don’t care about anything else
Other than having you around
Because only your smiles have
The power to wipe away my frowns
Dark in complexion
Yet with a noble intention
Seeing me in a happy mood
That's all you craves for.
Like a mother-hen, over me you fuses
With your sensuous succulent lips
Pecking my thin and tender cheek
Could lay all my anxieties to rest.
Your smiles a magical portion
Sending my worries into oblivion
Your presence an antidote
Routing my pains like a defeated army.
There stands my peerless beauty
What a paragon of beauty you are
Spreading your tiny little arms
To encompass me in your warm embrace
Pretty are your tiny little fingers
Like lotus flowers they seem
As elegant as the Lily might be
Its incomparable to your black beauty.
I was like a blade of grass without root
Blown away by the rough breeze
Until by chance I met you
Did I see the joy of a settled life.
Mere looking at you
I feel like I'm beholding a crystal dewdrop
Even the slightest breeze threatens to blow you away
Would terrify me.
What beautiful hands you have
Like carved jade they are
Only a mere touch from you
Can quell a raging fire within.
You are a portion of soothing calmness
A harbinger of enthusiasm
Natural it is for me to appreciate you
As you are indeed a peerless beauty.
