Finalist in the 'Beyond Words 2015' competition

His complexion reminds me of my motherland
Dark and rich in love and memories
His rigid skin mimicked the floor I danced on
With my bare feet
The contrast of his skin to his energy
I did not understand
I have never felt something so light before
His rejection felt like the cold mornings of Africa
And the warmth of his love
The radiant sun that soon followed
No wonder he felt so familiar
