My Beauty Queen

My Beauty Queen

I don’t know what may happen if you entered for a beauty pageant
Gladly, it doesn’t matter here
[Placing my right hand across my chest and over my heart]
Here there’s only one crown, one judge and one contestant,
There’s no second possible outcome.
You are my uncontested beauty queen.

Models stretched out on beach sand, clad in bikinis –
That may fit the cold covers of glossy magazines;
A pointed nose, full lips and long shapy legs
Can make a fine photograph, yes;
But what makes a real woman is on the inside!

From the angle you sit in every conversation
And the fresh perspective you bring to our arguments;
To  your warm demeanor and gentleness;
Oh! and the pure joy of your attendant naughtiness;
Your solid character and the cool charisma;
Wisdom crowns that li’l head of yours
And the soles of your feet bear compassion.
From crown to sole my dear…

You are just beautiful!

When I look through the tenderness of your eye
I enter a world where my many fantasies lie
So don’t be careful when you smile
I don’t mind my heart racing a mile.
Your beauty sinks beyond the eyes of this beholder
To touch the bottom of his soul;
That’s why in my heart, I reserved a little throne
So you can be my beauty queen.

  6. Tee, making us blush ehn?
    Real nice! You know na.

    1. Only those that wanna blush do so, hm? For a man to enter the core of womanhood like this, for you, kinda leaves you ‘exposed’, right? :) Bone am, jo!

      1. You are really making this more interesting Emmanuella

    2. [LOL] ok, I don’t mind anyone blushing… I don’t mind Remi telling me if I succeeded either. :)

      1. @RemiRoy, hm, I bet when 2face Idibia sang “You are my African Queen…”, you blushed, abi? Na every man wey tell woman say dem b queen go ‘blush’, hm? Na so we fit melt like dis, hm? Easy, easy… Yes, I am proud of my womanhood, of course, but I can’t hide that fact some men cannot accept a thing of beauty without first making it ugly… I just quoted Obi Egbuna’s book THE MADNESS OF DIDI. Hm. :)
