Crazy Kinda Love

I think of you
Like trees think of clouds,
Like birds dream of worms,
Like temples imagine God.
I also love you.

I approach you
Like air tends to yawns,
Like castles creep up on catapults,
Like rain seeks the seabed.
I also love you.

I embrace you
Like acorns store oaks,
Like wolverines spoon sheep,
Like oceans hug islands.
I also love you.

I fall apart.
My brain waves
Like fish finger,
My lungs suck
Like bees bumble,
My tongue tastes
Like butter flies,
My wrist watches
Like eye balls,
My heart beats;
Heart beats;
Just beats;
Beats
You up.
