IF LOVE WERE A HUMAN BEING

I love you
I so love you
Because of the way you love me

II
I love you
I so love you
Because you show the meaning of love
…in such bright ways
You envelope me when I feel dirty
Cutting through superstitions long held
…by men who claim greatness
…for their inadequacies

III
I love you
I so love you
Because for a heavenly face like yours
…to selflessly serve the sorry remains of a soul so starved of love
…shooting love higher when her bitterness and uncertainties climb high
Spells an impossible only you make possible

IV
I love you
I so love you
Because you’re fun
…contrary to what I perceived
Sending starry flutters beneath my stomach
Anytime those deep dimples dig themselves in diamond designs

V
I love you
I so love you
Because you listen and strive for my innermost needs
Acting god to my sobs
While sewing wings on my broken self
…teaching me to fly
And cheering me on
While working to be better suited
…without intimidation

VI
I love you
I so love you
Because the love you have for me is so contagious
It is like a magnetic force so potent
That I can’t help loving you
Just looking at you calms it all
…the clouds
…the tsunamis
…and the horrors within
Fighting off
…the knives chasing in the dark
…claws aiming for my defenselessness
…the teeth acting dog wishing me a careless fly which will be crushed by their canines
If love were a human being
…it would certainly be in your form

VII
I love you
I so love you
So much so that your attraction causes me positive distraction
…forcing an extraction of affection
That I so whole heartedly give
And I hope
I so hope we remain this way
Forever and some

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
