Lovers Never Lose

Love shouldn't be a measuring scale,
all rating each other and hidden tests,
keeping secrets close in case feelings fail,
dreading that moment when our hearts arrest.

Love’s no public plaything meant to mate us
where one goes down as the other ascends
switching freely with no thought of status
you soar above me as my likes descend.

I delight in seeing you up so high
despite the effort, warm closeness lost
I truly love you - no word of a lie
mutual strength outweighs personal cost.

Yet don’t think our match made in heaven
you’re plainly a five and I’m a seven.
