Love sick

I think I may have fallen ill

My visions blurring;

Stomaches churning;

All over my skin,

A million tiny pricks;

Little pins attack body and soul

This sickness is taking hold

No doctor can diagnose it

No record has heard of it

And yet still…

My mind is racing

In time with a beating heart

Which beats in time with another

Even when they are apart.

Still the illness persists

No detection of a cure

The one thing I have noticed

is that this illness only take hold

Everytime I look at you, or feel your touch;

or even your presence in the room

You draw out all the air

And I start to suffocate

When you walk in

All eyes are on you

And in that instant..

There is nothing else

You stand, and every scrap of light

is drawn straight to you

The rest of the world dissapears in black,

And feels like it wont come back.

Heart contracts, and skips a beat

Everytime your brown eyes meet mine

Even though that deep inside,

It knows that this will never happen;

My heart and mind will not agree,

I know I cannot have you

I know you cannot have me

And yet still I wonder

How things would be different

If in some other life,

We could find something even more

than the best of friends.

Love sick
