The follies of the heart

I could exorcise my demons
Dragging this pen across a page
But words they only fail me,
They can’t convey the pain.

Or unlock the cage that is my mind
Remove the arrows from my heart
That land daily precision
Ever since we’ve been apart.

Night brings its unique torture
Blood racing beneath my skin
Its cadence punctuating
The depth of mutual sin.

Daylight comes, does nothing
To quell this ache inside
Feet on floor I make some coffee
And swallow up my pride.

There’s simply no denying
Our intense limerence
Which accelerated quickly
Crashing into consequence.

Limerence: the state of being obsessively infatuated with someone, usually accompanied by delusions of or a desire for an intense romantic relationship with that person.
