Love Is So Cliche

If a cat
caught my tongue
it must have been after that
frog
in my throat
that was after those 
butterflies 
in my stomach

Was it vertigo
or did the earth move

I don't know
but you
are all that I need

Hi Maureen, What can you say about love, eh? It's been around ...like, forever. Sometimes true, sometimes a lie. Misquoted. Cliches for a cliche. I like your choice to get the point across... "cat caught my tongue" "frog in my throat" "butterflies in my stomach" Your conclusion... love, shmuv. "you are all that I need" plain and simple truth, you tell it like it is. Nice poem! Thanks for being my first reviewer, by the way. I appreciate your visit.

I love this creativity, play on words and description of love. "You are all that I need "-- the very words I told my wife... A fav..

This is adorable. Very clever use of cliche to describe the subject matter. It captures the essence of the feeling perfectly.
