Infatuation

in my years,

few but full,

infatuation has made it impossible

for me to love.

 

no matter who stays,

it’s the one who leaves,

that i lose sleep over.

 

for,

when something real is here

how will i know

that it isn’t just

 

another misled,

misjudged

misguided

 

teenaged emotion,

overtaking me

and making me believe

something’s there,

when nothing is.

 

ultimately we are all are victims

of this,

or that

but why is mine different?

 

are there more like me?

people

who see people

 

that they fall in love with

at twhe drop of a pin,

and in the same instant

forget it ever even happened.

 

is this what they mean,

by love at first sight?

 

or is that something

even worse?

even scarier

uncontainable

undefinable.

for if this is true,

 

no more for me,

please, i beg.

my heart is far too fragile

if sight is what you need

just take my eyes instead.

    You really captured the emotion well, I really felt like I could relate to it. Good piece!
