DATING A POET WITH A BUNNY TEETH by ekuba ezia

Every poet on earth lives on another kind of planet A planet not yet discovered, an interesting one You look at her and she talks with herself in the other world She asks herself “What is he really staring at?”   Every single expression you make Every word that comes out of your mouth Can be used against you because She is made up of expressions and words   When you stare directly in her eyes Just know that you lost her to the other world A world made up of words She says to herself in herself “Eyes like a sunrise, like a rainfall Down my soul and I wonder why he looks at me like that What is he thinking?
