Love makes you daft. It brings out the silliness. It gambols and prances in a world of its own. Love is lost in ecstasy and delight. Love is discovery. Love is insulating into a bubble that cuts you off from everything else.
Love usually changes and comes back to bite you.
YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A PUPPY DOG
Your love follows me home and pounces upon me in my sleep
It’s so full of excitement it’s nose quivers
It has big soft eyes a cold wet snout
It chews my slippers
And has never apologised once.
Your love has a tail that wags so hard that it’s eyes jiggle in its head
It constantly demands attention
And licks my face as if it were an ice-cream cone.
I’d put it on a lead and train it
But it’s too young and boisterous to restrain
So it follows me around all day
Panting on my breakfast and drooling in my soup
It has a cuddly fluffy coat and ridiculous floppy ears.
We gambol in the park.
I throw sticks to it
And it bounds and lollops delightedly
Unexpectedly jumping up to clumsily crush my most sensitive areas
Your love is like a puppy dog
Lapping up my tea
I am waiting for it to use its fangs on me
