And they call this puppy love...

This is Love 

If I was any good at poetry 

I couldn't write enough 

I'd write you beautiful sonnets 

With ‘thees' and ‘thous' and stuff. 

But I'm no good at English 

I can't arrange my words 

I tend to babble and meander 

As no doubt you have observed. 

But I'll try and write it anyway 

Although I can't really rhyme 

And there won't be an equal number of beats 

Like there should be in every line. 

Well anyway here I go 

I promise I'll get these words out 

And I'll try and say them quietly 

Although really I long to shout. 

Well you see I sort of love you, 

And when I see you walking around 

My eyes go kind of blurry 

And my blood begins to pound. 

When I try and talk to you 

I stammer and then I squeak 

And then you give me this awful look 

And I feel like a circus freak. 

I realise it's not your fault 

I know you're not to blame 

And really it doesn't matter 

That you don't remember my name. 

Oh, I hate this awful poem! 

Everything's come out wrong 

It was supposed to be sweet and romantic 

Like a ballad or a great love song 

Well that's the best I can do 

I suppose there's nothing left to say 

Only that I think I'll always love you 

Until my final day
