I can’t stand to be near you, and not look at you

I can’t stand to look at you and not smile

My thoughts escape me

I find myself just thinking of you

I get nervous

I try to hide it

and my desire for you increases


I regretfully try to reorganize my thoughts

Block you out so I can continue my work

It is just impossible

It is impossible

You have possessed me

So I just give up

and joyfully think of you

love poems
