A LOVE LIKE

I want a love like a movie montage.

Cute dates and sweet kisses

Hand-holding and easy laughs


I want a love like wine.

Pleasant and heady

Flavorful and intoxicating


A love like friendship.

Inside jokes and closeness

Acquired telepathy and comfort


Like the sun.

Bright and fierce

Warm and life-giving


I want a love like music.

Piercing and distinctive

Beautiful and versatile


I want a love that helps

And heals.

That aches

But doesn’t take 

Only gives

The greatest joy imaginable.


I want a love that’s mine.
