I remember when we met.
She was rocking a smile, short hair and a pair of skinny jeans.
With flat shoes and a matching heartbeat.
The sound of her laughter almost off-key,
But always on track –
She’s as smooth as jazz.
A medium height Soul-Sista
With a beauty so
I felt a change.
Like, this was my chance.
The self I was searching for,
Sneaked up on me and reached forth.
I realised that a moment of contentment
Is far better than a thousand disappointments.
