A trip to insanity

Before my lungs could breathe...

Before my throat could permit...

Before my lips could part...

The words withered on my tongue

The words were thus;

"I love y….."

Or do I?

Or did I?

Maybe I'd rather not!!...

My skin aches so badly from missing your touch

Each follicle pricks against my heart

How do I cure this malady called love?

I've tasted its insanity and felt every pang of its pain 

It has bruised my heart to gold

And melted my brain to sand

So I'm left here, again,

Stuck in my head, pondering

"If I choose this day to take a trip to this insanity

Tell me, will I ever come back sane?"

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
