Love is what you make it
If you are capable of feeling
It is worth it to have love in your life
If it doesn’t work
then you learn from it
and make the next relationship even better.
But never regret
giving your heart to someone.
What is it about your skin that calms me?
Your touch has the ability to both
ignite and suffocate my flames
when they burn out of control.
I want all of it.
The chaos, the peace,
the love, the laughs,
the kisses, your touch,
your lips, your scent,
your prickly beard and
the way you sing off key.
I want every bit of it
because we wouldn’t be
us without all of it.
I can’t just say that I love you.
I’m in need of word far greater
to identify this kind of feeling.
Its like the moon finally got to kiss
the sun without igniting into flames.
Like God himself picked me up and
gently placed me in your ocean yet
made sure I could still breathe
while drowning in our existence.
So I can’t just say that I love you.
I’m in need of a word far greater.
