The Plague

When only her lips reveal the secrets

That only her tongue can comprehend

The facts escape, your mind can’t apprehend

Your body can’t sustain the feeling no more

Is she the one you adore?

When yesterday you never knew

Perhaps today you may know,

For the very first time you never doubted what is real

You feel

You die for a few

Only to be born anew

For once in your life you find the one thing that’s only yours and not the worlds

Yes, you’ve lost your mind; you’ve lost your words

For even time loses consistency

And the only consistency being change

Your patience not in vain

The potency of her breath loses you again

Your heart changed

Your soul entirely plagued
