Three in the morning, REM sleep, dead heat
Of the night, weeps right outside leaked
Through the window, past the door
He didnt get up from his slumber till after 4
For once he awoke a mess, angry and aggrivated
Aggitated from this ass who actually had to make this
Stormy night the worst. He rehearsed a curse
Then surprised himself, because the first
Thing he saw, a raw body clad in a black dress
Black woman with black dreds, more than half stressed
He gave her access, she laid and rained her own
Cheeks, like cloudy black peaks of sweet moons, grown
From African flowers, she soured her face then made it plain
Made a vain attempt to hide pain, "I hate the rain"
He laughed at her disdain, gave her a towel and clothes
An hour had closed and she rose out the shower, exposed
To heat for the first time in her natural life.
Looked like a queen and a natural wife.
Water dripped from the ends of strands
Of twisted brown hair in bands, like brown sugar sands
Drowned in the sun, she smiled, this brown skinned one
Named Naomi of Nigeria, beauty like none
Else, she gave thanks on that watery morning
Evening of pouring, that interrupted an evening of snoring
"What are you doing here, its late, wet..." he noted
She quoted him, "Come when you need me. You wrote it
On a Post-It, and I kept it close to me." She sat next to Vincent
Glissened, while her tragedy unfolded as he listened.
"Isnt that strange. You can stay, lay in my place
My bedroom is the door on the right, take my space."
She faced him, aimed for his lips missed and hit his cheek
"I cant give you what you want, and I know this is weak
But I love her, no other, and youre further than the farthest
Id offer you my heart, but shes already got me, Im heartless
To you." She boohooed and he held her. And wished he hadnt.
Cuz now blood rushed from his chest. Yes, she stabbed him
And he felt himself happily happen to hurt, laughing
"You killed my happiness first, its really a sad thing."
"Shes been dead for a week now, how abrupt...Ill light the ether
How quaint that you would kill Me. I've been dying to see her."
