Until I Fell in Love with You

images

This is short piece dedicated to the woman that I love, Ionia. I am not sure that you can call it poetry, I mean it doesn’t even fucking rhyme, but it is from the heart.
 

Until I fell in love with you,
I never realised how much it was possible to miss someone,
Their voice, their laugh, their presence.
 
Until I fell in love with you,
I never realised that it was possible to be thinking of someone else,
To the exclusion of every other thought, all of the time.
 
Until I fell in love with you,
the world was devoid of colour,
A plane of muted shadows
 
Until I fell in love with you,
I never realised how happy loving someone else could make me.
 
Until I fell in love with you,
I never knew what love was.
 
I love you, Ionia.
