Affected

The way you have my head turning,

My arms shaking, my heart racing,

My mind palpitating, my pupils dilating,

My skin screaming.

My feet pacing, my legs racing,

My body debating.

Your miles and miles away

But it seems as if we were face to face,

Are bodies facing. Let me not be redundant

It’s just my mind becomes dumbfounded.

An undesirable addiction,

I can’t seem to control.

Always left wanting more.

Wanted love, now don’t know what I asked for.

If only life could be like before.

There would be nothing to restore.

We could be forever more.
