Lovesick


I’ve been away from the Internet and my blog for too long, for several different reasons… but I’m back! New internet connection and new passions!  Right now, though, I’ve come down with a bout of lovesickness….  maybe someone can relate?

Lovesick

I get drunk off your essence
Your presence leaves me high
Buzzed
Floating on air
I swear you leave me in
An altered reality
Another galaxy
When I’m with you I see small ants
Clearly defined
My vision’s refined to the accuracy
Of an eagle’s
Every angle sharp enough
To cut like a well honed blade
My love for you has made me weak
Made me seek after you
Needing another shot
Another hit
Another fix…..
You leave me battling kites for space
I’m in another time, another place
So, tell me again, if you leave me so high
Tell me why
You’ve gone and cut off my drug’s supply
And now
I’m shaking
Quaking
Faking happiness till I can draw you in again
So hurry back
And feed my lovesickness…

  2. Oh boy, somebody has it bad!!!. Almost hear Diana Ross singing “Love Hangover” in the background. Love it!
    May you get your fix soon.

I think when we love a feeling instead of a person, the object of that love can desire escape without being able to articulate the reason. You capture this incredibly well here! Amazing picture of dependency and yearning!
