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.
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.
I want you but not in the way you
mean it when you tell me the same.
I want all of you for my consumption.
I want to drink you 8 times a day like water.
I want your nutrients for breakfast and dinner.
I want to sink into all that you are then
I want to read you and write you into poetry.
No matter how many times
you tell the same lie,
it will still never be truth.
Even if I’m dumb enough to believe it.
Even if you begin to believe it.
I’m not brokenhearted
but I once was and
I want to always remember and
I want to always hold a piece of it
somewhere within me
so I will always feel
for the brokenhearted
