Love Is A Verb ~ SM

Love is a verb
It’s the hoping, the praying, and the waiting
For every day that’s a plus
I act these acts, and love a verb stays

Love is a verb
It’s the rolling of my eyes and smile lopsidedly placed
As I say “yes, you are a rockstar”
You smile back and love a verb stays

Love is a verb
Can I hold you a little closer? Envelope your strife between my thighs?
Your head finds its place on my chest
My heart beats and love a verb stays

Love is a verb
It’s the doing and misdoing, the action and inaction,
Head to head, step by step
Promises are made and love a verb stays

Love is a verb
It’s the buying of the schnapps, the payment of my price
Your knees don’t buckle. My hand holds still
Pen goes to paper and love a verb stays
