2. Boris Kodjoe writes a poem for his wife
In sweeter news, Boris Kodjoe poured his heart out to Nicole Ari Parker in a surprise poem for their seven-year marriage anniversary on Essence.com yesterday. The proud father of two made a play on the seven-year itch most couples get that makes them feel like they’re ready to sign those papers (cue Usher), but Boris says the only itch he has when it comes to Nicole is to be closer to her. The poem wasn’t the best thing ever written but you can’t help but saw awww at the sentiment. Check out his words:
My Seven Year Itch
You’ve always been my itch, so many ways you’ve touched my body, mind and soul from the moment He designed our paths to cross, finally.
You’ve always been my itch, so good to me I’ve wanted you day after day, night after night, making me wonder how my body was able to be without you all this while, before our very first touch.
You’ve always been my itch, giving wings to my thoughts, encouraging them to unforeseen heights, where I would build our castle in the sky, fit for a king and his queen.
You’ve always been my itch, filling my spirit with comfort and peace like I hadn’t felt since a child in Oma’s garden, so familiar and yet so new.
You’ve always been my itch. My seven year, seven days a week, 24/7 itch I always want, desire, crave, and never ever want to be without.
Not for seven seconds.
Happy 7th anniversary
Let’s do this again
I love you more
