Indescribable - Poem by Bethany Maxwell
I could write every cliche in the book,
And I still wouldn't touch on what you mean to me,
Or how much I love you so.
I could say I've never felt this way before,
And while it would be the truth,
It wouldn't describe the feeling I have.
I could say that you mean everything to me,
And while it is also true,
It would not portray your meaning to me.
I could say that you are my everything,
And while it is true as well,
You still wouldn't understand what you are to me.
You're the drug my parents never warned me about,
So life changing and addicting, yet prescription.
I lived fine before you came into my life,
But once prescribed to me,
You made me realize how much I needed you.
The side effects you give,
Are neither poisoning nor destructive,
Yet they give me a vision of life I've never seen before.
When you touch me,
I feel a rush no manufactured drug could match,
And with it comes the feeling of safety, the feeling of forever.
With your arms around me,
Holding me as close to your heart as you can,
Everything melts away, my journey ends, and I've found home.
I could say when I'm with you I walk on clouds,
And while this is true,
It doesn't describe the lightness I feel on my feet.
I could say that I feel like I'm dreaming when I'm with you,
And though this is truth,
It doesn't portray the absence of reality that I feel.
I could tell you that I give you my heart,
And while you are its holder,
You could not feel the emotions that lie inside of it.
I could say that I love you,
And though it is the absolute unquestionable truth,
You could never understand what I hold for you.
I could recite every cliche and line,
And while every single one would be true,
I would still be left with undescribed feelings for you.
