A love poem.
Your heart leaves you behind as it starts to race
The dam breaks and water gushes from your palms
You try to speak but your tongue is gone
Everything around you fades away
Your eye can only focus on the person in front of you
Time begins to slow as their gaze meets yours
Their smile brings light into the room
Shivers run down your spine as they speak
Their hand touches yours and goosebumps start to appear
Someone has robbed your mind, it's empty
You let out a cough and a few butterflies escape
Doctors call your condition as a heart attack
But you have contracted a disease,
The disease called love and there is no cure
Neither math nor science can explain it
Love is the eighth wonder of the world
Make sure you hold on to it tightly,
For if you lose it, you may never find it
Love is the pair of socks fighting to survive the washing machine called life
That's what love is.
