Here’s another romantic poem, inspired by real life.
Love is my nourishment, feeding my soul till sated; it rolls onto its back,
I feed on your love, guzzling like a man finding a cold beverage after a long day;
Bottle to head, pouring all of your attention down throat parched with loneliness.
Your love medicates me like antihistamines:
Clearing away the allergies brought on by depression,
Floating on the psyche like pollen drifting in the breeze,
Causing my heart to sneeze.
Your love is my oxygen, filling heart’s lungs,
Flowing through soul’s bloodstream
Providing sustenance to every cell that screams your name
As your love bathes them with nutrients.
Your love is the fulfilment of prophecy
Knowing you and I are destined to be together
Not just now, but for ever and ever…
In fact, I’d say it was destiny
That led me to you and you to me
And if I didn’t believe in the eternal,
Your love has made me a willing disciple.
