Is This Love That I'm Feeling?
I don’t know what’s happening
But it’s gone on a month or two
Is it the end of the life I know
Or, the start of something new?
What is this that’s ailing me?
Senses are gone; vision is blurry.
My stomach's in knots
Or is it butterflies?
These unfamiliar symptoms
I don’t recognize!
Day after day, I cannot eat
I’m wobbly on my own two feet.
I’ve become weak in the knees
Terrified of a heavy breeze.
My heart is racing, my palms; they sweat.
Humming the tune of every duet.
An awkward smile and I don’t know why
Appropriate emotions, no longer apply.
My heart is full, of what I’m not sure
Yet an emptiness that’s hard to endure.
Random moments of jealousy
I admit, take over me.
Doodling flowers and rainbows,
And a big bubbly heart
Unfamiliar surname by my name
I'm coming apart.
Have I forgotten my name,
I can’t keep it straight?
I just can’t think, can’t concentrate!
I need to know
I must figure this out
Please tell me,
Is this what love’s all about?
