Thinking About Love

You should fall in love so deep that your pulse redefines your heartbeat

like every touch could show your skin how love feels

slow breaths like you blaze L’s and M’s and N’s

You should simply be left breathless

Unable to move

or speak

Just thinking… about… breathing

Some distant waters come and trouble my seas

I just might

run circles around this church if heaven don’t come get me

cause somewhere between Good Morning and Hello you should be left speechless

Not caring to define the impact of one line sentences

You should have late night conversations of “I know you heard my mind speak”

Become prophetic and project the different ways you’ll spread your lot

Have you ever been hugged by love

It feels like fire shut up in your bones

and it sings like Oh Precious Lord

and it moves like Amazing Grace

and I know exactly how sweet the sound

of love 

reading books together for the first time

Not speaking

Not touching

Just reading and thinking


Each other

Have you ever felt the wind whisper loves name

Some I think I might be hearing thangs but I tend to see more clearly

and can not be held accountable for this fire

So just back up bc I might DRIZZLE & EXPLODE

and Oh… MY…. GOD

Love tastes so damn good

and maybe God and damn shouldn’t come so close

but you know damn well you’ve said worse when love had you

head down and you know what up

Go ahead and admit it

Love should be your desire and you it’s indulgence

of late night pillow talk

Vulnerable moments whispered between “please don’t judge me but I am a freak”

and love feels like the building anticipation of an orgasm about to come

And it ain’t even your fault if love has you sprung

Hell, you should want to be 

I mean why make an Angel Fly without it’s wings

There is no sin if Love is pure

So you should love without reason

Just breathing

Just thinking of your pulse settling your heartbeat
