He's American

He wears a thin gold necklace thats almost as beautiful as he is
He speaks with his eyes... deeply, intensely and in grand gestures
In his words there's a harmony... each sound slightly better than the one before it
...and then he'd laugh...
his laugh starts up in his toes... up his legs... reverberates in his chest... and escapes from his lips

It's not so much that he's funny... it's that I don't want to do anything but laugh when I'm around him
A wonderful and sweet guy... he exists in my moods

I remember the first day I met him... the first thing I noticed were his locks... his gorgeous shoulder lenght dreads that I love to run my fingers through. So I do. Often.

He holds my hand in public.
...and I don't mind...

He introduces me as the girl who's driving him mad in his language (which I'm yet to tell him I understand)

His beautiful frame and terrible singing voice... the fact that he thinks I'm sexy when we fight...

His 6ft of chocolate brown skin that taper down to fantastic bow-legs... the fact that with him I'm as sweet and bitchy as I want to be...

His personality... the part that cares not just about me but the people I care about...

But
I hate phone-cards and "i-miss-you's"... He's American

Sting said...

OH!!! I hate long distance relationships with a passion. All the longing, and missing and all that. But sometimes it's worth it esp if it's the right person. The one i absolutely refuse to do ever again is have a long distance relationship with someone in naija. Too damn expensive in every way, shape or form.

Now America is not that far from canada, so u are in good shape. I'm glad u found someone that makes u happy again.
