15 Pick Up Lines That May Actually Work

You're so beautiful
     shooting stars fall from
     the sky to admire
     your eyes twinkle.

The sunset and sunrise are
inspired by you; see,
you're so beautiful
     you confuse God.

If heaven were a person
people would die
     just to meet you.

Your face is the cartography
     of a daydream.

Your mirror image gets jealous
     of itself.

You're so beautiful
time slows itself down in the summer
     to make you live longer.

A leap year is the Earth skipping
a heartbeat at your footstep.

Your tears are thunder showers
Your smile, a rainbow's
     inverted reflection.

Your voice is
     a long awaited phone call.

Your touch is
     divine intervention.

You're so beautiful
     mother nature is mapping your
     genes for the next step in evolution.

It rains to clean the ground
     before you walk on it.

If you were reincarnated
     you would be the sun.

You're so beautiful
     it cant be contained
     within the context of
     this poem.

If loving you was a revolution
     I'd be it's martyr.

In fact, You're the best Idea
     God ever had.
