Why Do I Love You?

by Lost One   Apr 17, 2017

Why do I love you? Honestly, I don't know. There's something deep inside of me that makes this feeling so.

Words can't describe this magic because it exists outside the mind, burried deep within my heart is the answer none will find.

How can a reason for this phenomenon exist? Like a lake before the sunrise the definition is shrouded in mist.

No one truly understands why we love so much- we die; if or when they say they do then surely its a lie.

Superficial reasons come up like beauty or their mind, but how well do you know them? Beneath their skin you're blind.

Go ahead make a list and do what lovestruck do, I'll tell you simply what you'll see- what everyone else does too.

Some share what is hidden and I've laid here bare my soul. And all who know me know well, seldom do I relinquish control.

So the only answer to the question posed, "why do I love you?" is what I've said from the beginning, "Woman, because I do."
