Fireplace Wonders


Alight on on hips

Bent towards the shadows retreat

She refuses to meet my gaze

Instead hiding behind a shield of gold

Her melanin, the radiance passed down

From African queens to this princess

Glowing in the light of Prometheus

Given to us so we too may be godlike

I think she’s already ascended

Does she want to take me with her?

Only if two eyes could tell, one is hidden

Dashing confidence, curious simplicity

If I only I was closer, I’d stay a million nights

But I can only stand by the door and listen

To the heartbeat I wish to call, simply
