My Love Is Like... - Poem by Lyndsay Ayliffe

My love is like the weather
Constantly changing

I will love you one day
But despise you the next

My love is like fire
I bring warmth to your life

I will love you through everything
And be there to hold you when you're down

My love will consume you
It will consume us both

Some day its good, some bad
But I'm passionate in every aspect of life

So my love,
my love will be passionately intense

My love is constant second-guessing
Second-guessing on if my love is being returned

'The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return'

My love is like an Autumn day
Cold one moment, hot the next

My love is like the Great Chicago Fire
It will burn you down

    Your sister identified the dynamic of this poem which helps me to appreciate it. She described the process of the poem as a fire, flickering, moving from place to place, never stable. And upon rereading I can see the images do act like the flames of a fire, and it's impossible to keep them in steady focus, one blurs into another, they jump into and out of viewing. Does this suggest the love itself may be consuming itself even as it seems so lively in its actions, it's really using up its fuel and may be extinguished? (Report) Reply

    I actually love this so much. The poem almost moves like a fire, always changing in different ways like the heat, the colour, the intensity...questioning if another log or more newspapers will come along to fuel it and keep it breathing. Awesome! (Report) Reply
