This type love by Shihan on Def Jam Poetry.

"I want a love like me thinking of you thinking of me thinking of you type love.
Or me telling my friends more than I've ever admitted to myself about how I feel about you type love.
Or hating how jealous you are but loving how much you want me all to yourself type love.
Or seeing how your last name just sounds so good next to my last name.

I wanted to see how far I could get without calling you and I barely made it out of my garage.

See, I want a love that makes me wait until she falls aslspee then wonder if she's dreaming about us being in love type love.
Or who loves the other more or what she's doing at this exact moment or slow dancing in the middle of our apartment to the music of our hearts.
Closing my eyes and imaging how a love so good could just hurt so much when she's not there and shit, I love not knowing where this love is headed type love.

I wanna place those little post-it notes all around the house so she never forgets how much I love her type love.
Then not have enough ink in my pen to write all the love type love.
And hope I made her feel as good as she makes me feel.
And I wanna deal with my friends making fun of me the way I made fun of them when they went through the same kind of love type love.
The only difference is this is one of those real love type loves.

And just like in high school, I wanna spend hours on the phone not saying shit and then fall asleep and then wake up with her right next to me and smell her up all up in my covers type love.
And I wanna try counting the ways I love her then lose count in the middle just so I can start all over again.

And I wanna celebrate one of those one-month anniversaries even though they aren't really anniversaries but doing it just because it makes her happy type love.

I wanna fall in love with the melody the phone plays when our numbers dial type love.
And talk to you until I lose my breath, she leaves me breathless, but with the expanding of my lungs I can inhale all of her back into me.

I want a love that makes me need to change my cell phone calling plan to something that allows me to talk to her longer. Cause in all honesty, I want to avoid one of them high cell phone bill type loves.

And I want a love that makes me regret how small my hands are. I mean, the lines of my palms don't give me enough time to love you as long as I'd like to type love.
And I want a love that makes me st-st-stutter just thinking about how strong this love is type love.
And I want a love that makes me want to cut off all my hair, well maybe not all of the hair, maybe like the splits ends and trim my mustache but it would still be a symbol of how strong my love is for her.

I kind of feel comfortable now so I even fantasize about walking out on a green light just dying to get hit by a car just so I can lose my memory, get transported to some third world country just to get treated and somehow meet up again with you, so I could fall in love with you in a different language and see if it still feels the same type love.

I want a love that's as unexplainable as she is."

Omg me too I shotgun this type love as well.
