This madness in my veins; just rushes around without aim,
causing my heart to shudder and gallop.
This singularity called ‘Love’,
slowly creeps in,
and turns my world upside down.
I’m me…but not so much,
maybe another who seems,
elated and blue at the same time.
Can anyone else see you with my eyes,
when your lips curl briefly before a smile,
the corners of your sad eyes crease,
like they’re too far to feel the joy?
Your eyes avoid my camera as if
a bit of you will be lost forever in the image.
My mind is bound
by self-imposed diktats.
But my heart is another matter;
it chooses to mock, defy and question my resolve.
My moral compass has gone askew,
ever since the day I met you;
it’s a radical and compelling swing.
But I don’t want to change a thing.
Your body is a map for my sensory exploration.
I hold the thoughts of you, close, like some precious gem.
Each moment so vivid; as if you’re right here.
The rush powers me up all day.
Wrong, right, blah blah, hold back or give in?
When I see those eyes, your heart reflected,
I lose the fight, the barricades fall down.
I’m in a dream- like state and then nothing matters,
just you and I.
