Poem: Intro.

Like Jay-Z,

‘Allow me to reintroduce myself…’


My name is Ivie,

Not Ovie,


Or Vivian.


It sounds like


I’ve pronounced it

For people about

A million times.


I’ve got a quick mind,

Lovely eyes,

And sharp wit.

A pretty face,

A crown of hair,

And nice hips.


My intense looks

Scare some people off,


I’m not always

Thinking about

Anything serious.


I think about

My hopes and dreams for

The future,

Or if I want my next poem

To be silly or demure.


I also think

About why that love

Couldn’t accept

What I had to give,

But I dont dwell on that

For too long:


I’m not a detective.


I’m a moody princess

Who speaks my mind.

I’m a precious gem;

The type that’s hard to find.


You could spend decades

Trying to solve

The mystery of me,

But it might be easier for you

To just accept

What you see.
