Indian Crush

She had eyes that glowed like
The tongues of two lit candles
Her voice sounded like symphony
She danced like a swaying tree in the wind

He asked her to be his Juliet but
She seemed to know nothing about
The love of Romeo and Juliet
Shakespeare was a Riff-Raff before her

Her skin shone like a rising sun
Her hair was like that of a Fairy
She looked like the mermaid of Igwu river
It was a beauty without substance

He felt she was a Snorkel to him
Now her Ignominy balances her beauty
She is an alien in the world of letters
She only knows about Indian music
