You’re introverted in ways that other people find offensive.
But you’re different, you’ve got my entire attention.
Beautiful cocoa butter skin, your complexion is a blessing.
It’s within your simplicity where I discovered how beautifully complex you are.
The day I realised that words could touch you, I wanted to become a poem.
The type of poem that Nayyirah Waheed’s ink always dreams about.
You are a woman with substance, and I’m drawn to your melanin.
