I want you to bite my lip until I can no longer speak
And then suck my ex girlfriend’s name out of my mouth just to make sure she never comes up in our conversations.
I’m going to be honest, I’m not really a love poet
In fact, every time I try to write about love my hands cramp… just to show me how painful love can be.
And sometimes my pencils break, just to prove to me that every now and then love takes a little more work than you planned
See I heard that love is blind so, I write all my poems in Braille
And my poems are never actually finished because true love is endless.
I always believed that real love is kind of like a super model before she’s air brushed;
It’s pure and imperfect, just the way that God intended.
See I’m going to be honest, I’m not a love poet
But if I was to wake up tomorrow morning and decide that I really wanted to write about love I swear that my first poem…
It would be about you.

About how I loved you the same way that I learned how to ride a bike: Scared
But reckless with no training wheels or elbow pads so my scars can tell the story of how I fell for you.
You see, I’m not really a love poet
But if I was I’d write about how I see your face in every cloud and your reflection in every window
You see I’ve written like a million poems hoping that somehow maybe someway you’ll jump out of the page and be closer to me
Because if you were here, right now
I would massage your back until your skin sings songs that your lips don’t even know the words to.

Until your heartbeat sounds like my last name and you smile like the Pacific ocean
I want to drink the sunlight in your skin.
If I was a love poet
I’d write about how you have the audacity to be beautiful
Even on days when everything around you is ugly
You see I’d write about your eyelashes and how they are like violin strings that play symphonies every time you blink.

If I was a love poet
I’d write about how I melt in front of you like an ice sculpture
Every time I hear the vibration in your voice so whenever I see your name on the caller ID my heart
It plays hop scotch inside of my chest.
Yo it climbs on to my ribs like monkey bars and I feel like a child all over again.
I know this sounds strange but every now and then I pray that God somehow turns you back into one of my ribs…
Just so that I would never have to spend an entire day without you.

I swear, I’m not a love poet
But if I was to wake up tomorrow morning and decide that I really wanted to write about love
My first poem it would be about you
And after all of that she was like, so how do you feel about me?
And I said, put it like this:
I want to be your ex boyfriend’s stunt man. I want to do everything that he never had the courage to do like… trust you.

I swear that when our lips touch I can taste the next sixty years of my life.
And some days I want to swallow stacks of your pictures just so you can be a part of me for a little bit longer.
If I could I would sample your smile and then I would let my heart beat
Do the bass line, we would create the greatest love song of all time
Whenever, we stand next to each other, love I was the only one made for you and you can be at last my Etta James
I’ll be oh child when you’re in pain or you could be candy coated drops of rain
Even though it never rains in Southern California
And together, we could be music.

And when my friends ask if you’re my girlfriend
I’ll say no.
She is my musician
And me… I’m her favorite song.

"When my college professor asked me to describe what love means, I wrote that it can’t be defined, or described merely by words. But by experiences and actions. Love is when you stay up until 3 a.m not speaking, but holding the one you are in love with.Feeling their pain, helping them conquer their fears, being there. Even if you only get an hour of sleep and your eyes are heavy and burning, you don’t let it matter to you, because all that matters is that that they are okay, that they are safe in your arms. Love is when my boyfriend moved thousands of miles away from the only home he ever knew, just to stay with me while I went through recovery. Love is when your are tired and aching from working all day but you rush home, not to lay down, but to make sure everyone else in your home is fed and happy and healthy. Love is my dad holding my hand in the hospital for seven hours even though he has to work the next day, to be there through the worst panic attack of my life. Love is when my mom gave up her youth and parties and boys and teen years, to be a dedicated mother to me. Love is when I call my best friend in the middle of the night, and she just listens while I cry and cry over my broken heart. Love is when my step-father took in the two year old me, and loved and supported me and always treated me like his own. Love is when I couldn’t eat or speak or sleep or function or fucking breathe, because I thought I had lost the love of my life. Love is staying by someone’s side for three years, fighting for them through heartache and pain and addiction and demons and depression and screaming and horror, and still seeing someone you could never imagine a life without. Love is when you feel what they feel, someone’s pain and agony , stress and passion. Love is self-less, imperfect, horrifying, raw, beautiful and fucking real."
