TROPICAL ROSE
tender and mild
Queen of the wild
no man exist
that could resist
I melt iron
I tame lion
a woman; divine
beauty defined
all men adore
no man abhors
I bear life
I wear strife
silky melanin
regulates adrenaline
a perfect mould
precious than gold
a rare gem
without germ.
soul mender
iron bender
black tonic
cleanses toxic
tropical rose
topical repose.
