Fabric of Love by dragonpoet

At first love is
As smooth as silk,
as comfortable
As cotton,
And as warm
And soft as fleece.

Then you reach
Times when love is
Scratchy as burlap,
Cold as lace
In winter, and
As bumpy as corduroy.

With patience
And faith
You can have
Love as forgiving
As spandex
So it will
Last as long
As polyester.

This was in response to an internet prompt to write a poem
using fabric texture as metaphors
