Love is rabid
A blanket of unknowing
Strangles and suffocates
Heavy and heaving
Chest beating
Heart hurting
I’m too scared
My insides spill out
My tongue lolling
My eyes rolling
Bite down
Pain is subjective
In the text only
Derives this uncertainty
I’m so unsure
But so definitive
It hurts because it is real
Love is rabid
Nothing else matters
Love is rabid
You’ve bitten me hard.
