Pretty Pearl - Poem by Ray Anyasi

There you are, priceless pod of precious peas.
Where you are, there is where I want to dwell.
Please don't call me soppy, you have the keys
To make me sensually ring like a bell

And run after you like honey by bees.
If I can reach you then all shall be well.
I only pray you not to be a tease.
Or say no to make my eye red and swell.

Did I hurt you ever? Can I appease?
If I cause you pains I shall make them quell.
For round your heart my love shall make a twirl.
I shall reach for you in the deepest seas

And cherish you more than the mouse does cheese.
For now and ever you're my pretty pearl.
