PAD 26: How Do I Describe Our Love?

Tuesday’s prompt was another two-fer: write a love poem or an anti-love poem. Here’s one for my love.

How Do I Describe Our Love?

I need a new metaphor for love.
The old ones have either been
Done to perfection or
Hackneyed to death.
How do I describe our love?
The comfort and the excitement,
The surety it’s there,  even when we disagree,
How do I describe our love?
The unspoken understanding,
The voiced words of love,
Even the misunderstandings and how we work our way out of them.
How do I describe our love?
The way your hand finds mine under the covers
And our fingers intertwine
When you come home late from a long day of driving.
