This is another love poem.
Another ode to your hands, your
hips, your smile, this is
another poem about how I fell
for you, how I thought this would
never happen, how despite that,
I can’t imagine life without it,
this is a poem about love feeling
like a lump in my throat every time
you speak to me, about my
feet turning to stone when I see
you- I can’t help but stop and stare.
This is a poem about how love feels
like having cold water thrown at
your face, by which I mean to say,
it wakes you up, by which I mean,
It makes you feel alive, by which
I mean, life feels worth living now
days. The sun seems hotter, the
birds seem louder, the sky seems
brighter- the entire world seems
happier because of this love.
So I wrote this, another love poem,
another ode to feeling on top
of the world, another satisfied sigh
aknowledging how lucky I am.
