Seven Wonders of Our City

Alhambra by writer Kamal Kaan

Darling!
sparkling jewel of Our city
we awe.
Under your domed sky
Ssh
we wait
curtains rise.
Razzle dazzle
hold me thrill me
shake me break me
we see stars
we fall in love!
Y can’t I stop finkin of U
toss & turn
long 2 return
(Never stop taking my breath away)
Encore!
