I love you anyway

Love is not as simple as a
candy filled heart shaped box
unless my soul was the candy apple
to your eye
that fit
into a heart shaped box
and even then it's not simple
it's simply elegant
Love that elegantly dances on your lips, as they smile
Love that elegantly sings in your heart, as it pumps blood
through you

And your love?
Your soul?
Hides behind the candy filled
heart shaped boxes
because you don't know how to express
the one emotion that is misunderstood
as express-less
and that is OK

Let my love speak volumes
be the canary to sing
our song
you know the one...
the one that can't fit
into a heart shaped box

This is lovely, great job. I especially like the repetition of the heart-shaped box!

Could you please read some of my work, rate, and tell me what you think?
