I Didn't Know The Feeling Of Love, Then I Met You

Based solely off a poem I wrote for English that spawned into something more.

I did not know what the feeling of love is was like
To feel the terrified beating of your heart
To feel the breath in your chest start to hike
To watch as they walk away, allowing your heart to restart

I did not know what it was like to have them consume my thoughts
At every waking moment, day or night
I did not know what it was like to stare at them and be caught
I did not know what it was like to be in the dark and have them be your only light

I did not know what it was like to see the world in color
So bright, it seems to burn your eyes
All the colors in the world to me seem duller
I did not know what it was like to feel affection and sigh

I did not know what it was like to have your heart flutter like the wings of a dove
For I did not know the feeling of love.

And then you came along
In all of your magnificent glory
Singing a joyful song
And through that you told me a story

You were someone unique
Someone I could never be
You had a light everyone sought to seek
And I watched you. Seeing

I was always that girl in the back of the class
Reading books as an escape
That girl who had a heart made of glass
And I stared at you in awe, mouth agape

I wished for you to see me
That’s something that could never be

Many months passed with no introduction
I knew everything about you
You seemed to be like a poison. A perfect cause of destruction
And yet you knew nothing about me. You never do

I watched you move on with life
As I sat in fright
This filled me with complete strife
As I watched you continuously flee from my sight

And suddenly one day you came up to me
With that bright smile on those charming lips
You asked me to go on a date. It was more like a plea
I couldn’t say no. I had dreamed of this.

So we went to the movies and I had a blast.
Slowly we got together things moved fast

I realized something as time went on
I never knew how to love
Love to me was more like a con
I knew the feelings, but for years my heart never fluttered like a dove

Until I met you
Then things took a brighter turn
I never knew how this could really feel. I never had a clue
It always seemed like an inferno set in my body. Something that always seemed to burn

You showed me how to love
To know I was always able to
You showed me to the clouds and above
You made my head spin and you still do

So I thank you
For helping me understand my ability to love was true

I love you
