A Different Kind of Love

I love you

I love you without a label that they all try to bind us with for their own satisfaction

I love you with a comfort minus the attraction

The circumstance is different from a sexual appeal

 

I know what I’m feeling

I know that it’s real

There are days I want to climb to the top of your shoulders and hide from it all

Days I’d sit and watch the snow fall

When I’m sad I want to crawl into your arms

It’s a love that feels safe, but not a love that ends in a broken heart

 

It’s a love that cuddles on the couch

Or stares up at the stars

But not a love that tears us apart

A kind of love that jams out to One Direction in a beat up car

But no strings attach our hearts

Nights that don’t end in stolen kisses

But in bonded friendship and finished sentences

 

When I’m with you, I feel like a child with a cape

I feel like a puppy with a birthday cake

You make me happy

You get me for me

You give and you take

 

I know you’ll help me through the heart ache

This kind of bond is sealed with pinky promises

And a no-no list

This kind of love is not romantic

But it is deep and has a twist

 

One that features pillow fights

And secret super powers

One that talks for hours and hours

I finally got the friendship I’d been yearning for

 

The intelligent conversations

The normal arguing, but not keeping score

I finally found my person

I finally found the key

I love you

But the right type of love

The way it’s supposed to be
