Hues and Shades
You said you loved me for all my kinks and curls
my dark melanin tone
but my culture you call backwards.
You said you loved me cause I make you feel like a man
never arguing against you grand plan
but respecting you do.
Every kiss laced with hunger
as my abstaince draws you closer
to the forbidden fruit
you wont admit it but i know you like,
that fact you cant have me sparks,
your imagination in ways your words cant describe
but your eyes cant hide.
So I’m stuck between being myself,
praying on the same knees I burn sage with.
Or hiding the part of me that made me the woman,
you said you love…
