You ask "How much you love me?",

well... I can't say that I love you more than my life because in my eyes my life means nothing

but I love you more than a cup of hot coffee in the mornings

. You know, that feeling when you are barely waking up and that sweet bitter taste makes everything so much better.

You ask "How was your life before I came along?",

well... my life was lifeless.

Before you came along my mornings were the worst.

Getting up every morning was a struggle, the alarm o'clock was my only enemy.

The one that would wake me up from a peaceful sleep or sometimes a beautiful dream.

I hated socializing, I was never good at that.

I remember that I'll put my headphones just to pretend I was listening to music so people wouldn't approach me. I had a few friends that I would never hang out with because I was always too busy, there was always an excuse.

I was color blind.

All I could see was grey and black. I never paid attention to sunsets or the light that the moon cast upon the dark. I never care for such things until you came along.

Nobody warned me that one day I was going to meet love.

It took me by surprise, for a moment I thought I was ill.

My stomach felt weird and my palms were sweating, I felt my blood rushing through my body in all directions as my face turned red and my voice was gone.

It wasn't completely gone I just couldn't form a single word. My legs were fighting for balance while my eyes could only meet yours.

My whole body was motionless and the only thing I could do was watched you go.

That day my life change, it was like I was seeing life for the first time.

The color came rushing in different shades. I didn't even know your name and I was missing you already. I love you not with my heart, but with my mind, my soul, my senses.

With everything that I have. It may not seem a lot but for this poor little person in a multitude, what I own is all I have and it's all yours.

Very touching and original. You describe love in a different way then most of us are used to, and I really liked that. It spoke to me.
Great poem!

It's definitely a different version of love, but it it's well thought considering I have had atleast half these happen to me when I found love for the first time.

Keep writing
