Would You Love Me Back?

If I loved you the way the night loves a storm,

Or how a monsoon covers the sun,

If I loved you so brightly,

That holding you tightly,

Would singe you ever so slightly –

What would you do, if I loved you like that?

If I loved you like horses love hay,

Or how mayfly’s love for just a day,

If I loved you the way a moment loves a clock,

Or how green moss loves a strangely shaped rock,

What would you do, if I loved you like that?

If I loved you more than my fingers like to touch my phone screen,

Padding out buttons that form words like ‘if I loved you…’

If I had loved you enough to stay,

And pray the pain away,

Only then, would you love me back?

Hey there. My name is Ash. Whenever I feel lost or confused, I write. This blog is a project in releasing the poetry I would have kept locked up inside, otherwise. It's pronounced 'LOU-lah-NA.' Enjoy your visit!
