I thought I knew how to love. That is, until, I had
the honor of loving you. You taught me how to truly love.
You allowed me to actually love. To love with no care.
To love endlessly without fear. Fear of getting hurt.
Fear of loss. Fear of not being loved back.
In my past relationships I thought I loved. I thought
I knew how to love. That is, until I had the honor of
loving you. You came into my life after I thought
I was done loving. You came to show me I hadn’t even
been loving. You make me feel like I’m floating
through space. You make me feel like time doesn’t exist.
Only you have made me feel like I’m alive. Like i have
air in my lungs and blood rushing through my veins.
Like I have bones in my body like I have love in my heart.
You allow me to feel every single atom that is made up
in my body. You’ve allowed me to experience feelings
I’ve only heard of. Only read of in books. If i had
the chance, I would skip through all the chapters of
heartbreaks and go straight to loving you. That way
I could love you longer. Love you harder. Because
I’ve wasted all this energy I could have been using to
love you. I wasted all this energy “loving” when I thought
I knew how to love. But God, I wasn’t loving. I was
just feeling. And love is more than just a feeling.
I know because you taught me that. When
I had the honor of loving you.
