Is It Love?
By: Analisa Wade C’2016
you hold me.
and the feeling of your touch never goes away
you’ve shown me.
that you’re the only one,
that can make me feel this way.
I want you.
and you put my mind at ease
I can feel you through the breeze
how you make my heart freeze
I stop and just cheese...
I feel like I’ve been diagnosed with a brain disease
’cause all lean think of is you
it’s the simple things you do
I wonder if you think about me too
...and why is it that I can’t get enough of you
Is it love?
that you've got me going through.
You’re the only thing in life that I’m dying to pursue.
The only thing my mind seems to be into
...but it could be as possible
as it could be untrue
that it's love.
but it’s really hard to see
that you’re really feeling me
that you need me
to see me
to breathe me
it's not easy to agree,
even though you guarantee
that it's love.
and you put no one above...
that's how you want it to be
I’m still stuck in this moment of intimacy.
I’m feeling you.
like how you’re feeling me.
if this is how love is supposed to be
then I love it
’cause I'm loving
