Lovesick - Poem by sílvia oliveira

Lovesick

I still house that virus (you) in me
that has slowed me down on daydreams
that has joined my whole blood
that has driven me kind of tipsy...

In the wee hours
the virus has woken me up.
Very early in the morning
it has showed up.
At noon safe and sound
it suddenly appears!
Mostly at night
it¦s there to remind me
it¦s present and powerful.
No need to

I¦ve been already taken
by its invisible-tangible presence...
Its virulence is so attractive
that I¦ve simply abandoned myself
to its comprehensive catching charm...

    Yes indeed. Love as a virus is so appropriate as a description of the one love in our lives that we will never get over. There is no cure...
