My love for you is like

A dynasty of Chinese emperors lasting through the centuries

Like the last minute of math class

that feels like an eternity

Like trying to dig a mile deep hole in the ground,

with a plastic spoon

But sometimes it's even stronger

Like the piece of hardened gum on the bottom of my shoe

that won't come off no matter how hard I rub it on the asphalt

Sometimes it's pleasant

and sometimes it's not

And sometimes it's like a deep blood stain on my snow-white dress shirt

Because I don't think this love is coming out anytime soon.
