Love Poem

He loves her like the alpenglow the sunset casts when they go hiking.

She loves him like sleeping in on Sundays
until the smell of coffee tricks her out of bed.

He loves her like staying warm
in winter clothes while walking in the snow.

She loves him like her favorite ice cream flavor.

He loves her like diving into the lake
on the hottest day of summer.

She loves him like finding a free parking space downtown.

He loves her, not for her eyes,
but for all the smiles they remind him of.

She loves him like a smoke after sex.

He loves her like the poems he reads, and tries to write,
but can’t not mangle the words.

She loves him, but thinks
the word is overrated.
