I need you like an insomniac
needs black coffee
with three extra espresso shots at 6am.
I want you like an alcoholic
wants 12 glasses of wine
in one single sitting.
I crave you like one craves summer
after 6 months
of unbearable winter.
I long for you like I long for air
after jumping off of the poolside
and taking forever to float back up;
long for the taste of your lips,
pressed against mine,
to feel the warm electricity of your body plunging
onto me; captivating,
paralyzing me in the moment.
Loving you is like trying to explain what water tastes like;
trying to teach a blind person
what the color blue looks like.
Loving you is simply indescribable.
There’s no way to explain
how much I want you,
how much I need you,
how much I crave you;
no string of words is deserving
enough of you.
This feeling, it’s like cold coffee
in the morning, and late night drives,
and everything wonderful
all packed together into one,
and even then, it’s never enough
to describe the feeling of love.
What I feel for you is deep,
head over heels,
L O V E.
More breathtaking than anything
I’ve ever felt before.
