University Life Café

Piece of paper with burnt edges and a heart drawn in the center. The heart is cut in one corner 

Idiot

Written August 29, 2011. Simply put, it is a poem about being lovesick.

 

It hurts
When I get stupid,
When I feel
Without thinking.

It hurts
When I feel my heart
Pulsing in time
With dreams that cannot be.

It hurts
To know there would be,
Can be miracles,
But there won't be.

It hurts
When I imagine
How real such chemistry
Would be, can be.

It hurts
When I feel
Without thinking,
When my heart is speaking.

It hurts
When I am smitten,
Dumbfounded and daydreaming.
It hurts
When I get stupid,
When you occupy my mind.
