ameriKKKa's Most Hated Muslim Poet
Email Poem | Today's Poetry
Slightly over six feet
carrying a cane,
Black clothes,
dark lenses with black frames,
Seldom tell you my legal name,
Always use to pack pairs of nines or forty fives...
Wear a size thirteen in a Corcoran Jump boot,
Guns were for self protection not to rob or loot,
From childhood,
I have always fashioned myself a tough guy,
Tens of times tougher...
Than a cheap steak or cowhide,
Never took much to pretty words or sweet talk,
Since you entered into my life,
Your love alchemy...
Has seemingly transformed me,
Warmed me,
Your genuinely kind ways,
Slay me...
The authenticity of your sincerity...
Amazes me,
You are a woman...
Like no other has ever been to me,
Through you,
The all mighty has rescued...
And requed every part of me,
The ice that once ran though my veins...
Has thawed and by your charm...
Warmed me...
Through your love alchemy,
The rock that I once called my heart...
Has departed ...
And being without you and your love...
Would render me broken hearted,
I need you as much as I need air...
And by the way...
I love that thing you've done with your hair.
