I KNEW LOVE
Before I met you, I was so sure I knew love.
I grew up reading and thinking about love.
I have been feeling it, been hearing love.
Heck, I have even written about love.
Countless times I’ve prayed for it.
Countless people sang about it.
Love was there, everywhere.
So before I have met you,
I was sure I knew love.
Like seeing the sky,
it was so clear,
you came, then
all definitions were
altered. All examples
just paled in comparison
to the ones you showed me.
I had to tame my heart for there
were moments when I thought it’d
burst. Of so much love. Of a new kind
of Love. It was weird. It was new. It was
You. Love was You. You were Love. I just knew.
