I wish you would stop plaguing my mind
Infecting me like a sickness,
Consuming my every thought.
Infiltrating my dreams-
Even in my sleep I cannot escape you.
Your smile is infectious,
Your laugh intoxicating.
It is so easy to lose myself in you.
Your attention is electrifying,
That I could hold it is an addictive thought.
I could bask in the warmth of your presence.
You are a shimmering oasis,
But I’m afraid of becoming marooned-
Because even an escape
Can become a prison.
I wish I wouldn’t think so much
Or read too much into things
But the thing is, I see too much
Of myself in you to trust you fully.
But if I don’t trust you
Then why do you feel like home?
Why does being near you
Come so easily?
I am drawn to you, and you to I
Because much like the tides,
I’m quite sure we are inevitable.
And even though there is a chance
That we might crash like the waves
And bring forth the wrath of Charybdis,
I think I'm ready to weather the storm.
