I just created my own poem of directly creating metaphors for love and it was quite fun! So I thought it would be more fun for everyone to share their own "love metaphor" poems!

To give an example here are some lyrics from an Atmosphere song (Love Is A Pimp) that inspired me:
"Love is a lot like a buzz, when the buzz is strong it can spawn hallucinations, it can roll into a permanent vacation, or it can crash just to land your a*s in the pavement. Love is a lot like an ego when it's up it can let people down, when it's lost they wanna see it found, but when it grows everybody wants to toss it around"
