Catch The Fairy



Her lips are like a faded rose,

imitating the perfect heart.

Her eyes are nearly black

And their darkness enhances the mystery.

Her ebony locks are wild and charming

Just like her character.

Her skin?

The right blend of mocha and gold.

Her touch is soft,

Her words are mesmerizing,

Her stare is tough,

And her laugh is enchanting.

Like the nimble fairy

Her beauty and charm make you want her more.

She’s the one thing you need,

But she’s the most difficult to catch.

You don’t know how to make her yours,

But maybe just try a little harder

And she’ll make you her match.
