Someday I'll Love Mahoghany - Poem by Joy Milton

Someday I'll love Mahoghany
And her pure hatred for
The counterpart human species
That inhabit this world
Just as she does

The hands that held hers
And whispered promises in her
Ears that were so newly attuned to the
Realities of adolescence

Were also the ones
That held the knife
As it went through her pure
Unaccustomed to fake love

Someday I'll love Mahoghany
And her wacky ass ideas
And fascinations with weird things

She opens my eyes to see
The beauty under the grime
In all of us

Someday I'll love Mahoghany
And her addictive personality
She brings light to the lives around her
And creates beautiful monsters
Through her passionate self-epiphany

Someday I'll love Mahoghany
And she'll love me too
She has opened me
Like a flower
And I have begun to understand the
Magic of our internal
For she has my mind entirely
Fucked up

Someday I'll love Mahoghany
But when will that day come?
