Love of My Life

Love…
…drove me crazy when I began to fall for you. I had trouble getting to sleep, but could not wait to dream of us each night. Back then even a few days of not seeing you was torture. You became the love of my life.

my hair,
my eyes,
my fingers,
my heart.

about what he
was doing,
thinking,
seeing,
smelling,
feeling.
I could
not eat
for thoughts
of him.
