Love is an overwhelming feeling
often leaving one confused
making a chore of a simple task like breathing
and making a mess of most things you do.
Love at times can be exhausting
pushing you to your very edge
and just when you think you’re falling
Love will pull you back from the ledge.
Love is a lifeboat when you are drowning
emerging from the fog to rescue you
Love is a parachute when you are falling
Keeping you safe in everything you do.
If I were a mountain climber
You would be my Everest
And I wouldn’t need to take oxygen
Because of you I’ve grown accustomed to being breathless.
I apologize for sounding so cliche
but love has a tendency to make us act that way
Just know that as long as your heart beats
I will be forever grateful that you are in love with me.
