(un)defi(n)able

i am forced
to resort to
hyperbole and
metaphorical
meanderings
because the
words do not
exist to say
exactly how
unimaginably
extensive my
love for you
truly is.

it is as if
every cell
screams for you
as if you are
oxygen and i
have been
slowly suffocating
since the moment
i was born
unable to
metabolize an
atmosphere
without your
effortless
nurturing
perfection.

left speechless
striving to
write something
capable of
what i love you
seems to be
merely a fraction of
failing at
the dead art
that brought me
into your orbit
while scribbling
frantically
to write one ode
that burns
a quarter as hot
as the passion
your smile ignites
inside my mind.
