Human Love

Your mind is an ocean, wide and wavering.
Your voice is a drug that I find myself savoring.
You are made up of something more than cells and body parts.
You're made of the stars and the purest beating of hearts.
Your touch is a sunset, peaceful and surrendering.
It's just so beautiful. You don't fathom an ending.
When you do, it's grim, no more sun, no more light.
My love is a sky, no barrier to be seen. I can fly.
Your aura is gravity. It naturally guides me to where I belong.
You, I like to please. I like to write you love songs.
When you are happy, I could almost cry,
Because when you are not, I feel I die a little inside.
My hands seem too big to hold your glass soul.
I'm afraid I'll crush you, and you'll let me go.
The rage that I keep in a cage
Will do everything to escape and nothing to save.
The inner depths of me are swollen and sore.
It aches and bleeds. As to what caused it, I'm not sure.
I appear to be functional, like a clean room,
Yet the closet is filled to the top, overflowing, can't be fixed with a broom.
You act as a bandaid to my cuts and scratches.
It worries me because it causes me to continue latching
Onto you, feeding off your heart like a leech.
I'm disgusting and vile. Bathe me in bleach.
I don't mean to be this monster, selfish and temperamental.
It's just that I'm a druggie for you, and withdrawal is detrimental.
I can't blame it on you. What am I doing?
I've always been selfish. My mind, I am losing.
You're a needle that I stick in my arm.
You're a powder that speeds up my heart.
You didn't make me like this. It's not your fault.
You're so funny and caring and smart.
I'm sorry that I love you so much.
I know it sometimes causes you dismay.
Try not to leave me, though I know I don't deserve you.
Try not to leave me because I'll never desert you.
I love you.
I wanna be Mrs. Jones.
I love you.
I want you to be my first and only home.
