Magic and Mystery

Poetry By: Ousma

A poem for my boyfriend

Your compelling eyes; a strange marine color

Flirt with my skin

Settling on my neck, my lips, my eyes,

And then start again

Without a single drop of wine

I'm drunk, it seems

Blissfully happy, lacking complete thought

The world and its problems;

They don't matter so much today

When you and I occupy the same space

It all just fades away...

You must be a wizard

A strange inhuman being

For your fingers are charged with fire

Leaving behind a pleasant burning

Wherever they go

You're something otherworldly

A unique and shimmering soul; this I know

Perhaps you are a gypsy

You walked into this door

But it's double-hinged;

And you could just as easily leave

You scare me, and intrigue me

And it's hard to keep my guard

When you hold me this close

It won't be long now before I fall

Close my eyes and let go

I can only hope that you'll join me

Perhaps you're a genie; waiting to trick me

I see the contentment on your face

And I feel my own, bubbling in my heart

While we hide from the outside

In this soft embrace

I suspect you're an angel

But only time can tell

If I'm right or wrong

I know you must be something

For there is a strange and magical light in your eyes

Twin pools of turquoise and marine

Burning with a passion, resilient and fiery

I've made it my purpose

To unravel your mystery
