Poem: Feels Like Love.

IMG_1849

What does love feel like?
_____________________

It feels like air trapped in your lungs, slightly uncomfortable, but strangely welcome.

_____________________
It feels like the moment you spot your waiter bringing your food to you at a restaurant, when your whole being smiles with relief.
_____________________

It feels like not wanting to go to sleep, but sleeping anyway, because you know you’ll see your beloved there.

_____________________
It feels like a glass of cold water after hours of thirst, languid satisfaction which refreshes you.

_____________________
It feels like knowing you can fly, but you tell no one, cherishing this secret and holding it close to your heart.
_____________________

Yes, it feels just like that.
_____________________

And when the love is reciprocated?
_____________________

It feels like all these and more, magnified a million times over.
