    In my world, you're the most magnificent 8th Wonder
    Reducing any other to an architectural blunder.

    Even the Great Pyramid of Giza
    For in you, the world sees a
    Strong, mature, intelligent Black man
    Leading by example, saying and doing
    What he will and what he can....

    In Alexandria, stood a guiding Lighthouse
    But you'd make dim its wayfaring beacon and douse
    Every flickering flame
    For with your love, you easily tame
    My every heart's desire
    With your hot, searing, roaring, blazing fire!

    At Ephesus was the Temple of Artemis
    But you give me pure joy and sheer bliss
    Just to peer upon your smiling face
    After a long, hard, day erasing every trace
    Of strain, strife and stress
    When w/your love, you abundantly bless
    Me w/knowing that I am yours and you are mine
    No more searching.
    We've both found the end of the line.

    It's been said that King Nebuchadnezzar
    Built the Hanging Gardens of Babylon
    But w/you I bloom and blossom
    Every day, my heart is full as you lovingly don
    Me w/sweet-smelling flowers
    And we frolic and revel
    In your well-cultivated, aromatic, love-filled bowers.

    In Olympia, sat the statue of the Almighty Zeus
    But you'd crumble his kingdom and shake him loose
    From his exalted throne & seat
    For you can't be beat
    When it comes to ruling in love
    We've been blessed from above
    And each day, I'm thankful and grateful
    For such an over-flowing plateful
    Of sharing and caring
    And pairing and baring
    Our minds, bodies, and souls
    As our inner forces attract like magnetic poles.

    Once, standing at the harbor
    Was a tribute to the Sun-God, Helios
    (And to some, Apollo)
    For the world-weary, sea-tossed ships to follow
    But to you, falls short the Colossus of Rhodes
    For YOU are my Sun and your dizzying love bodes
    Well as a sign
    That it's one of a kind!

    The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus
    Was a grand house for the dead
    But, even that royal resting place pales to the wondrous bed
    You nightly prepare for me
    As we lay and love
    Binding and joining like hand to glove.

    Yes, in my world, you're the most magnificent 8th Wonder.
    And any other that Man may say, you'd tear it asunder!

    Eloquence Conveyed

    :hi:cherryblossom
    You are something else.

    May I flow.:luv:

    Eloquence conveyed
    To the wonders you made
    Such a flow for all eternity to hold

    Like the Depth
    Of the Ocean
    Unmeasured

    Depth the Love of Yours
    It’s the Treasure
    Is so Deep
    Jumping In
    With both Feet
    It is Your Love

    To the Peak of Mount Everest
    The High on all High
    To the Peak of Kilimanjaro
    In Africa they Cry
    Her Love is So Deep

    You Elevate Me
    Your love is never decreasing
    Heaven bound always reaching

    You adore
    My French
    Kiss you Lover
    Me Amore

    Taking me higher and higher
    Forever more
    You’re certainly what
    Every night
    To the moon and stars
    I wish For

    See a strong man can see
    I am weak and on my knees
    When faced with the aspects of you

    Could I mount and tame your love
    Angels singing embracing from above

    Your body curves
    Make the pulses race

    Hold on nurse I may need
    To get the pressure checked
    This woman has blown away
    All my grief

    She takes me down
    Lets me enter with crown
    I’ll always kneel:bowdown:
    She’s my lady
    At her feet.
    :couple:

    Thank you, Baller and Watz!


    It's kinda like a Niecy Williams flashback...

    "Lets hear it for the boy
    Lets give the boy a hand
    Lets hear it for my baby
    You know you gotta understand..." :lol:

    The emotion of love always inspires
    the imagination to run away into grand visions
    and the beauty & inspiration that surrounda us.
    I see from this piece we both can relate.

    ...Lovely scribe, Cherry.

    The 8th wonder...INDEED!
