MY BEAUTIFUL PRINCE
by Precious Abatan
Who has seen my prince?
The one who in my heart dwells;
He who controls my emotions;
The one who dominates my thoughts.
In his eyes are words untold;
Words that speak the language of the heart;
His arms like rods of gold;
His voice like a soothing balm,
A soothing balm to the sores of my emotions;
His stares leave me nervous and apprehensive;
They join my lips in holy matrimony;
He sounds my name like musical notes;
His winks make my heart skip doublebeats.
He crawls into my dreams every night;
Like a big immortal creature;
He smiles at me dangerously;
Building bumps on my dark skin;
I wait for that glorious day;
When he would stare into my eyes;
And together, we’ll stroll down the aisle;
And live to leave no more.
