    She parts men’s souls like
    a black wave tearing through the sound
    her voice resonates melodically through him
    dimming the lights of other women,
    because in her, he is aware
    that
    he has a queen, a supreme soul mate,
    a dream-fulfiller,
    the instiller of every ounce of joy
    he’s longing for
    she’ll go to war with those who disrespect him,
    give her all, just to protect him,
    sacrifice, so she never neglects him,
    in heart and mind, she sincerely erects him
    upon a pedestal,

    see those magnificent defining curves,
    striking the nerves of men
    who know they’ll never have her,

    feel the searing touch of her skin,
    producing relentless vibrations within
    those blessed enough to have her,

    She’s the closet thing to angel, on earth,
    with her dark, blazing light,
    we should thank God for her birth,
    caramel, mahogany, chestnut, hazel,
    pecan, sienna, umber, burgundy

    colors of perfection,
    colors of beauty,
    we should take pride in one of God’s most uniquely beautiful creations,
    my wonderful, wonderful black women
