How Did You Feel?

sitting here reminiscing on a time when I was in love

when it was fresh

and new

& all I wanted was to be loved & only be loved by you

you gave me a high that I’m sure should have been illegal.

you made my heart and my soul smile

you made me feel beautiful

made sure I was beautiful

& then did your best to make sure I remained beautiful

inside & out, you loved me

& i loved you


to love a person so much that it feels like it should be wrong

but it feels too right to ever be wrong...

what was it like when you first fell in love they asked?

how did you feel?


I felt like nothing else mattered as long as you were by my side.

& i felt like the feeling could last a lifetime.
