Ticking clock, hastening age, dashing dreams
Malnourished, thirsty and starving
Love deficient, hopeless faith, fleeting life
A dying heart needing CPR, no paramedics.
Never been taught what love’s like, nor imagined I could love
Thought love is only in Hollywood
But if love is Hollywood, we are forever doomed to be selfish
Love was long dead, forgotten, and now abstract.
Meeting you made me a doctor of Love
A dying patient becoming a doctor?
Resuscitation! Your love makes my heart functional
Your love changes everything.
I lost everything just to gain patience
A covering for the rainy days
Raincoat not just an umbrella that covers part
My light in my dark hours.
Every ticking clock ignites the flame of unfeignedly boundless love
The thought of you polishes the rough edges of my limbic system
Your love is the experience of lifetime
Eternity in perspective.
A love that last not like the last
A love from the heart not books
A love on giving, but first the heart
A love so loud to the deaf even without words.
Now I’m prisoner of love,
A prisoner with no one to bail
Chained to your lotus blossoming tender-kindness
Forever secured by your dove-charmed breastplate, I’m yours!
