If Love were a fight

I am not a violent person in any physical way, but if love were a fight I would fight you this day. If love were a fight, I would fight you all night under twinkling stars by the full moon light. If love were a fight I would fight you near the Ocean, where the rolling weaves are poetry in motion. I would fight you in the depths of the deep blue sea. As your lover, I would fight you for every moment you spend with me. If love were a fight I would fight you in the desert, as twilight sets fire to the sun baked sands, I would fight you across the mountain tops, I hope you understand. That I will never tire in my desire, nor will I seek any rest. Fore I will give it my all, and fight you with my last breath. If love were a fight I would show no mercy, give no quarter, respect no time line demarcation or border. I would kick Godzilla in the knees. Call Goliath a punk. Resurrect Houdini and leave him trapped in a trunk. If love were a fight, there is no limit to what I would do. But I would thank God, I'm fighting with you.

I know how it feels when you have to fight for your other half in order to have a good relationship or marriage. This poem made day and inspire me to continue to fight for love. :)
