    He is…the hot coffee in my cup
    The suga that sweetens that bitterness up
    The moisturizing lotion that keeps me smooth
    The mentholatum in my Vicks that does nothing but soothe

    He is…the air that I breathe
    The one that makes my heart skip a beat
    The sunrays in the morning that warm me to the bone
    The sensual pleasures that make me moan

    He is…the problem solver and he makes me forget
    When he turns on the sexy grooves of Brian McKnight and Keith Sweat
    Never tearing down but came to build and restore
    Makes my home happy because he leaves his stresses at the door

    He is…my tasty lollipop
    The midnight lovin’ in my candy shop
    The MLK of my mountaintop treats
    The Isleys in between my satin sheets

    The Langston in my dreamed deferred
    The Love Jones in my spoken word
    The Emerald City in my Wiz
    The entertainment in my show biz

    He is…my everything, anything, one and only sweet thing!

    Making me crazy and driving me insane
    Always ready, willing and able to love me come snow or rain
    The answer key in my pop quiz
    My eternal universe is what He Is!!!!

    he is, she is

    he is... right around the corner
    he is... close and not a foreigner
    he is... on the scene like a coroner
    he is... the truth like sojourner
    he is... happy that she is
    so excited like gee wiz
    nobody ever lived the life we live
    he is... her sedative
    she is... his adrenaline
    popping uppers and downers
    until we learn to live again
    he is... her heart's desire
    she is... his universal
    mind, two bodies, one soul
    and vice-versa\

    we compliment each other quite well, if i must say so myself

    Loved your word choice, seems you had fun writing this and just let that pen soar. He is...marvelous. And Sha'iyn's response flowed hand in hand with your words.
