Why does my heart

Carry your voice to my brain

Confusing the pain

With pleasure?

Why does my soul

Rupture in your absence

And yet

Burn on fire in your presence?

Why does my mind

Make up to be rid of you


But never forget about you?

Why does my body

Ache at night

Whether I am or am not

Sleeping next to you?
