    like warm sweet potato pie that grand mama makes
    is what the sweetness of her lips permeates
    like the freshness of greens soaked and cooked just right
    flavor soaked into her like gumbo prepared the previous night
    similar to macaroni and cheese baked on christmas day
    is like unto the warmness of the words that she will say

    she is original like the sock it to me cake that my mama bakes
    just like betty crocker baby got them cakes
    her affection is like unto so many things that give so many feelings
    her love has layers like granmama’s sweet potato peelings
    the love that she gives me is like soul food made fresh and right
    i can’t wait till she gets home so that i can get some more tonight

    Wow. Metaphors galore. Just a fun, brilliant read. It flows so well. Amazing construction.

    Kinda makes me hungry and sex-ed up at the same time. LOL Mom-mom's mac and cheese...mmmm

    Phenomenal.
