How to describe a feeling so intense,
That you are dying
And being reborn at the same moment.
That hopeless spiral of
Exhilaration and despair
Triggered by a smile.
It was as I was torn in two
And you pouring yourself into my heart
Like a fever that never broke
An infection that never spoke
But boiled my blood with passions
Who till then was just a boy who
Only ever kicked a ball against a wall
And played the boyish games of youth
Had instantly contracted the fatal and
Incurable disease of love.
