Love without boarders.

Abby Kesington 1979 (Lagos)



A Love without boarders

Scroll, swipe then match

Confluence for reorders.

Some quite an eye-catch!

Oh! The myriad of pictures.

White, black and sepia

Search for elusive features.

Struggle to see beyond the media

Tall, dark and handsome

Imagine you can have some.

Short, stoic and lonesome

Alas! Some wants a Threesome.

Let’s chat, some dare say

but friends first, if you may.

Beautiful and sexy they cue

Falling for what is a rue.


Alas! asked to see my cunt!

Nothing wrong in a fox-hunt

You don't have to be blunt

Quickly unmatched, bitter with such an affront!
