A Recitation

My love you are a poem with its own description:
The assonance of your whispers,
The rhyme in scripted in your voice,
The themes that outline your body,
The repetition that characterizes the blink of your eyes,
The tonation of your laughter,
The persona Created in your characteristic smile,
The onomatopoeic rush of your feet,
The alliteration of your speech,
The imagery buried within your face,
The metaphor in the brightness of your eyes that likens to the stars,
And the personification of your words that fills them with reality.

    Using poetry as an extended metaphor, really clever and effective.
