A poem

If I should travel a thousand miles for you

Then I will travel across the sea for you

If for love that I should die,

Gladly will I accept my fate with  sigh

I'm clenched to you 

I know you're obsessed too

And if you ask me why?

I won't hesitate to tell why

Love is something we all desire

Because it forms a part of us

And, when two worlds collides,

Mysterious sensations arise

Because love is my weakness,

It unfolds it self to me as sickness;

Then, I flee all manifestations of love

And I said "never again will I be in love"

But oh, you came to me as friend 

And my heart never reject friends

And then, I loved you tenderly 

Similarly, you loved me faithfully

My world was made with things so bitter

Your world was made with things so sweeter

But, when we met, our path became so bright

Perhaps, that's what happens when two worlds collides.
