    It
    was
    (extremely)
    attractive
    blind faith at first sight
    the way his knowledge flirted
    with my mind
    sharing
    images of kings and
    queens who once
    ruled ancient fertile lands​


    I
    understood
    (completely) ​
    the language in his eyes
    that spoke of longing for me
    to me
    his stare
    absorbed the vision
    of my melanin skin, down to the
    lovely beauty he sought within me ​

    gave new meaning to
    (loving the skin I'm in)​

    With
    his touch
    came a current​
    through me akin to
    the river Nile

    I
    felt
    the
    anointing
    of our ancestors​

    Our
    hearts' beat ​
    like
    African drums, as our bodies
    sacredly bond to
    the sound of symbolic
    tribal songs​


    We
    became
    awaken souls
    committed to each other,
    nurtured in the
    rediscovery of our
    culture​
