Love Hurts

It hits my body like a ton of bricks
Then it surrounds me; the cold shock leaves me paralyzed
My skin is on fire, I can feel it peeling and sizzling
I start to sink into its cold abyss
It enters my mouth and nose
It fills my stomach with a putrid taste
I try to breath air, but to no avail
It enters my lungs with an undying tenacity
I can’t breath; I am dying
I try to prevent the inevitable
I struggle, but I sink deeper and deeper
All of a sudden everything is black.
Am I dead?
Is this what death feels like?
No, I’m just in love.
