Mystery Man

by Soyini Denise Liburd

There's something that
lingers about you...
A deep, sensual mystery
There's something in your words
that call to me
Makes me want to tell you
that you make me feel...

There's something inside you,
True beauty
An elusive quality
that only special souls posses.
It calls to me
In a voice so soft...I tremble
asking my heart
what it is
That could cause it to stir so...

My heart told me
The words I tell you now
My heart showed me how
I could feel the way I do
for you...
There's something about the two of us
...that is the same
Or perhaps long lost friends
found again
within our spirits

My lips let fall through poetry,
An expression of your inner beauty
You brought hope to my fantasy
That the Black Man I can Love
Can be a reality.
