How To Love You

I don't know how to love
Like the ocean loves its waves
Or the way the sun dips below the horizon
To paint her love across the canvas of clouds
For all the world to stop and admire.

I can only love
In the way only secrets are loved...
In between the shadows and the whispers
Of things meant to be kept between the lines.

My love for you would manifest
In brilliant art
But it would be forever locked away
In a deep chest only our eyes could see

My love for you would sing out
In the chords of harmony
Never meant to reach anyone's ears
But our own

My love for you would be

Hidden from the world
Because my whole world would be you
Everything I would do would be for you
But you would never want that kind of love
You'd rather live for the likes
And the cute couple-y comments
You'd live for the documenting every second
Of every moment of our relationship

You'd rather have a social trophy-love
Than the grandest,
Most truest form of love
You'll never get to see

So I guess that's why
I'd never get to love you...
   Because I wouldn't know how to...
