    Is this what love feels like?

    The burning cold in your stomach when you are not with them?
    The smiling at all of their texts?
    The knowing you can always be yourself around them?

    Is this what love feels like?

    The always wanting attention from them?
    The loving all their features?
    Knowing they are so perfectly imperfect?

    Is this what love feels like?

    The wanting to cheer them up when they are down?
    The perfect moment being the one where you dance in the rain together?
    The sharing songs, hoodies, and smiles?

    Is this what love feels like?

    The desire to hold their hand?
    The desire to kiss their lips?
    The desire to hug them tightly?

    Is this what love feels like?

    The way we look at each other?
    The teasing?
    The promises and secrets?

    Is this what love feels like?

    The knowing that we're breaking all the rules by being together, but still, loving it?
    The knowing bad things are thought about people like us?
    The not caring at all?

    Is this what love feels like?

    But society disapproves
    and society says so.
    "It's against the bible!" "A girl can't love a girl!"

    Do they really hate us?

    But when I'm with them, my worries fall away. And the light begins to shine.

    Is this what love feels like?

    But there’s more to the story
    More than I knew
    More that came with it

    Is this what love feels like?

    What everyone doesn’t tell you
    That when the day comes
    And they’re gone
    You know you’ll never be the same

    Is this what love feels like?

    What is love?
    Wanting to make them happy?
    Wanting them to love you back?

    Is this what love feels like?

    People always describe love
    As soft and white
    It is

    Is this what love feels like?

    But it’s also sharp and black
    It will cut you deep
    If you aren’t careful

    Is this what love feels like?

    And it’s also numb and gray
    Enveloping you
    Sometimes it doesn’t go away

    Is this what love feels like?

    Your first love
    Your first kiss
    Gone in the blink of an eye

    Is this what love feels like?

    So tread carefully
    Because your heart is made of glass
    Even if you think it’s steel
    And it is easily shattered

    Is this what love feels like?

    I’m picking up the pieces
    And they’re cutting my hands
    But it was all worth this

    Is this what love feels like?

    I can’t even hate them
    Even though people say
    With love, m there’s always hate

    Is this what love feels like?

    I want them to be happy
    So I’ve never said a word
    But it hurts how fast they got over me

    Is this what love feels like?

    Five months after we broke up
    They have a new number one
    I pretend that I am happy for them

    Is this what love feels like?

    Maybe love
    Really is blind
    Because I knew we would not last

    Is this what love feels like?

    But I will keep silent
    I will never say a word
    Why?
    Because if this is love
    I still love them
    Do you ever get over your first love?
    I don’t think so
    But my lips are zipped
    Because I want them to be happy
    And for that
    I’d do anything

    Is this what love feels like?

    Because no one told me
    I’d love so hard
    And it would hurt so much

    Is this what love feels like?

    I thought that would be the end of this poem
    It’s been a year now
    And I’m a little better

    Is this what love feels like?

    We’re friends again
    Best friends, actually
    And I’m glad we’re still close

    Is this what love feels like?


    I’d still take you back in an instant, though
    But for now,
    I’m fine with being friends.

I thought that would be the end of this poem
It’s been a year now
And I’m better

We’re friends again
Best friends, actually
And I’m glad we’re still close

I’m over you by now
And I wish I could tell past me
Everything is going to be okay. I promise.
