It Looks Like, Feels Like, Sounds Like

I have never been in love,

but I know what it looks like,

feels like, and sounds like.

 

It is appealing on the outside,

sweet and content on the inside;

nobody can compare

to the one true love of your life.

 

Your two hearts beat harmoniously and in unison,

as if they could jump out of your synonymous chest

at any given moment.

 

Your palms sweat and your stomach fills with butterflies

when your love enters the room;

nobody can compare

to the one true love of your life.

 

It sounds like, “For you,

I will live eternally,

through good times and through bad,

through happiness, and through illness.”

 

“I love you” is a statement often implicit on the first date,

not thinking twice about whether or not you truly love

your one true companion, that is for life.
