    If God is my creator, my grand architect
    She is my builder.
    The very foundation of whom, which I can stand without.
    I was conceived into this world to be Superman, in the likeness his image
    But she too was created from my ribs to be my Lois Lane, my most perfect kryptonite
    Which makes me fall weak at a moment’s notice, and is capable of relinquishing me of all my powers
    She is the doorway that blocks the pathway to love hidden on the other side
    No matter how hard I press,
    She remains hard, firm, and solid
    So that I may learn to be gentle
    At times I grow jealous of her, because her powers way outweigh mine.
    By some odd ratio of twenty-five to nine
    But who cares when a woman can kiss you with just her eyes.
    I realize she is Black Magic
    Turning my veins to vines.
    Making them wrap and entangle around my heart,
    Giving meaning and definition to the single word, crush.
    I always admire her, because
    She is the last memory of my ancestors
    She is the Queen of the Nile,
    A Queen of the Smile

    Your use of metaphor, outstanding, the sentiment, wonderful. Your words certainly make a Nubian sister feel special. Welcome to Destee, hope to read more from you. Thank you for this poet.
