And Your Love’s Like These

And your love is like these
Your love is like this
Your love a symptom
I need no stethoscope to diagnose

Each time you dial my line
Asking what I’ll take for diner
I know you still love me

Each time you damn worried
On my long silence
I know you still love me

Each time you wake me at 3 a.m
Showing me your brand new bikini
As sign of surprise
I know you still love me

And each time you ask me
“Do you still love me?”
I know you still love me

I still love you my sweet love
In my heart I recite your love
Like a scriptural verse of love
Even if your love

A filthy dungeon
With love I’ll live therein

Even if your love
An ocean
And you
The mermaid queen
Therein I’ll live to be thy king

Thy love is like this
A symptom
Everlasting.
