He only loves you
From the bottom of his heart
I’ll love you from the top down

He only wants to live in a home
I want to live in the clouds
The dwelling place of souls

He only wants you
For who you were
I want you for who you are and
Who you’ll become

You’re only a number to him
A one or maybe less
But I love you like the number pi

You’re only his sweetheart
His honey
But you are my food
The main ingredient in every recipe

He only wants to be your king
I want you to be my queen

He only asked
For your hand
I’m asking for your whole body
Even the invisible parts

    So much to love about this poem, Benjamin! The line “But I love you like the number pi” is splendid. And that last stanza really brings the narrator’s yearning home to the reader. Excellent work.

      Haha, I wish. Though she hasn’t picked me yet :(. All I can do is pray and hope she might change her mind, though it is probably too late.

      • stacilys says:

        Awwwwwww, sorry to hear that. Maybe you’ll meet someone 10 times better, and your poem would breathe into life. And not just you to her, but her to you as well.
