    Her skin was quarter past midnight,
    a cover of rich, smooth ebony veneer,
    inebriated my senses with sweet liquors
    of elation, making me glad I was here.

    Richly clad in magnificent darkness,
    she flowed effortlessly, a dark stream
    of intoxicating reality; I drank deeply
    from dark vessels lips licorice dream.

    I’ve come unglued in her night coat,
    sprawling, against sweet ebony glue,
    savoring the thick grain of dark wood
    fearing that pulsed moment it is through.

    Ra,

    I am almost speechless here, but I will manage to say that this is
    absolutely awesome. The metaphors flow with such artistic force.
    This would make any sistah, (especially a dark skinned sistah) proud to be in the arms of a poet like you.:)

    Ra...that makes it even more special, to know that you wrote this in honor of your own lady. She's a blessed woman indeed.:)
