I wonder...


I wonder what it

Feels like to have that

Pitter-patter in your chest.

When you see that One that

Makes your heart thump and

You clap your eyes on them

And go “wow.” Or maybe

It’s like a slow burn…one you

Don’t want to stop. You feel it in

Your belly and let it lick your

Chest.  I don’t know.

I’ve never been in love.

But I’ve been through chemo.

And it seems to me, love hurts

A hell of a lot worse.
