A Man Like You

A Man Like You

I met a boy today somewhere

Down the strait, he smelt of sea salt

His eyes sparkled like the sunset

Trapped in stones of fire


I met a man down the lane

His frame danced with the wind

Caught like in a hurricane

A celebration in tandem


I saw a lad whose lips

Touched by nature’s ointment

Rouged in frozen petals

Standing in a meadow far off

Where sky and earth kissed in languid romance


As I walked past him

Colours of the rainbow swished in swirls of skirts

Hearts taut at Cupids pull

The gods came to see

And nature stood still in dance of souls

I saw a man that broke the gates and the floods poured

I saw a man like you

    I want me a man,who will sing a song of love and passion.
    Then makes us breakfast the morning after

    I know I will experience a romantic and passion enriched affair. Not giving up because of my nationality.

    I just wish Christiano Ronaldo would come out from his very comfy closet already. Let’s have a hike in the bushes together, he’d sing me this same very sweet, succinct poem while I tug on his chest hairs and we’d just stare at the stars together making out intermittently.

      Two bottoms making out?sounds very interesting..Did you also give him chest hair in your wild imaginations? Cos the Ronaldo i know whole body is as smooth and hairless like a baby’s ass.

        Two bottoms? Really? And you (of all people) would know he’s bottom, how? I thought the forced hiatus imposed on you would be used in harnessing that morsel of staple food you have in your skull into something useful. Oh well, guess I was wrong. And last I checked, people grow hairs and shave.
        You really should use try reasoning once in a while and your punctuations are still as horrible as the word, HORRIBLE!
