Paying Compliments

Please don’t take my words out of context; I’m not trying to be presumptuous

But believe me when I say I find your smile infectious

Or if I say your sense of humour is contagious

I’m not trying to hit you up or being pretentious

Unlike the movies we’re friends strictly platonic not Eros

But I can’t blame you for being unsure

Question everything even my honest intentions are smeared with hidden motives

I don’t know anymore

I just don’t know how to admire a female’s beauty without it being lust

I just don’t know if it’s a matter of being misunderstood or a lack of trust

I just don’t know how to appreciate the exquisite nature of their physique

Without thinking of it as a target of physical conquest to be possessed

I just don’t know any more if I have the ability to pay tribute without second guessing

Wishing I could just marvel at the many ways in which God demonstrates his blessing

You know that’s a product of divine craftsmanship deserving of complimenting

Not snide remarks clothed as compliments pity I was too misogynistic learn this lesson

That a well tailored ensemble is just as attractive as lingerie or skimpy dressing

To feel the warmth of an embrace whilst still having respect for personal space

But apart from the physique of the female there are so many other things

About her that you could compliment, like the way how she thinks

You see nowadays in the world you can’t settle just for pretty

Because pretty girls are a dime a dozen you got to find one who is witty

A girl’s pulchritude isn’t just her looks, is also her fondness of books

It isn’t measured by only her fashion but can be seen in her dreams, her ambition, and her passion

Her true beauty isn’t just make-up and lipstick; it’s also her great taste in music

Yes she is attractive but more importantly she is just as talented as she is creative

Yeah she is out-of-this-world pretty but is she down to earth? Does she know what she’s worth?

Of course she is sexy but can she restore my faith in humanity

She is undoubtedly appealing, but are her conversations really inspiring?

Many of us have beauty as a misnomer cause when I think of Beauty and what it represents

There are certain words that comes to mind like Intelligence, Competence, Independence, Eloquence and Confidence

Remember that True beauty is not just limited to physical appearance when paying compliments

~reconciliation

 

 

 

 

 

 

imagine surrender

 

     as white as truce

     as white as truth

 

 

from the attic

I pull down the stars

for you

     like fireflies in a jar of night

 

 

darkness dissolves our scars

suffocates our segregation

 

manipulates the distance

between us

as it salts the sheets

of our waiting bed

 

 

& we become the unstill

 

 

a blue crush of shadows

in a half-naked room

bending, writhing

against the skin of a musky moon

 

 

     come into me

 

    

as if you were wind

     stealing my breath

it was worth it, maybe

he did not break down
the walls i’ve spent years building.
i set myself free,
brick by brick,
defying my own rules
and breaking in the process,
just to turn to ashes
in the scalding heat i walked into—
loving him.
