A Poem on Love and Romance: A Unique Treasure by Deola Adelakun


A Unique Treasure

Whosoever knows where my salmon

Lives should signal to me

If you hear her baritone rhythm

Do not deafen me.

The brilliant diamond I often cherish

O whose unreserved love is this?

She occupies my heart romantically

Pictured like gold and lustrous like a silver

Her dove manner won my heart

‘Tisan attraction of future

Wow! Her endowment browses in my internet

Her innate talents process data in my computer

Walks and smiles as she, and I develop erotic headaches

Her nice perforated teeth ring a bin all my head

Thirsty I am for you darling!

You have caused me sleepless nights

Come here love; let us feel each other

I think of you too much and much

My diamond!
