Traffic Light Girl - Poem by OBIGOD CHIDI CECE

From afar you flashed green,
With your irresistible behind;
Then I get closer
You put up a red front,
Beckoning blue eyes,
Glittering ebony hairs,
Perfect fair curves,
But a red painted lips.
While I wait in anticipation
To the countdown of your Yes,
Smiling to the ecstasy
Of our flowered path ahead
You rewind the numbers
With your train of excuses;
And when I despair to disappear
You stretch your yellow fingers
And flash it to the rhythm
Of my fallen headlamps;
And I am turned on again
My ignition charged and fuming
With passion as a cute mustang
With Dom Torreto behind the wheel;
But you show me red instead.
Now I wake from among the blind
To see traffic jam of men ahead,
My number still far from your heart,
For love calls where I can't trespass;
I must take that path by the right
Narrow, virgin and deserted
But I'm more assured the road
Will turn golden when I touch her
And the beauty I crave lies ahead.
