Black Man Black Man

by Deja' Rae

(You Need To Know This)

There are so many ways to describe you --- where do I start?
Smooth and sleek
Always unique.
Hard and Ruff,
Made of strong stuff.
Beautiful man of color
The worlds greatest lover.

You move me
You soothe me
You undo me

In your arms you hold me
You control me
You unfold me.

Know this and know it well
The essence of you makes my heart swell.
That coal black stare pierces my heart.
And that tender touch tears my body apart,
Your kisses stir feelings so deep inside,
They make me feel beautiful, the make me feel alive.

I never listen to what the world says about you,
Because only a black woman like me understands your truth.
You want to be respected
Not rejected.
You want to be loved,
Not snubbed.
You want to be given a chance,
Not treated like you're less than a man.
No this and know this well .
No one can ever be what you can
My most astonishing and unique beautiful black man.
