I want to love.
No ordinary, I love you kind of love. No lets go to the movies on a date. No holding hands in public for all to see type of romance. No name calling or “Babe” whispered at the end of a meal.
No vacation trips to secret islands or rose petals leading to the bed. No diamonds and necklaces type love. No sitting with a group of friends watching football type of loveness. No I adore you sayings.
I want a love so deep that the blink of his eye would be felt through the tips of my fingers. His hands would trace mine of that everlasting puzzle piece, connected with my lingering soul. Connected to my mind.
I want a love where he could read my emotions the moment I walked through the door. A love where we could lie in each others arms and stare into nothingness and still feel the romance. A moment of everlasting peace just to sit beside him. Where we could talk for hours about nonsense like the political regimes in Asia or why Brooklyn pizza is amazing.
I want a love where I don’t miss him when we are apart. Where the time spent away from each other just further’s the anticipation of our lover minds uniting once again. A love that none of our friends can understand because it is that beyond. Like the universe and all the mysteries that lie in the stars above us.
I want a love where my knees get weak when you grasp my chin with your tan hands. When you slightly brush my hair off my face as I sleep, craddled in your chest, breathing the soft cologne as it touches my nose. I want a love where worries never come into place. Where money and parties are a thing of another world and where we can always return to our world. Endless in moments.
I want a love where I would stare at you for hours and smile. Smile because the love we have is nothing that’s been foreseen before. A love where two entities meet and the connection is beyond tales and oceans of sunsets.
I want a love that would leave me so breathless that I would forget all the loves I tried to create in the past. A love that would make me want to take on every goal in my bucket list. A love that would keep me guessing on the next move. His love would be the anchor to my veins, the one person who could feel my heart beating from far away. I want a love where I never have to make a decision and where moments last and time becomes slow in this fast paced city.
A love that is beyond the words of this poem. Yeah. I want that love.
