The way the light touched you
slayed my fragile heart.
It was as if each ray
reflected off of your skin was sent soaring through the air, with a fierceness enough to scare the hair off of a lion, aimed straight at my little blood-pumper.
Breathless, blind, and dumb;
you left me a mess, a shipwreck at that, and continue to do so, with each passing moment.
And despite my way with words,
all that I’ve become capable of saying when I think of you is nonsensical blabber.
have attached themselves to the part of my brain responsible for logic and cut off the blood supply.
I say this
because you leave me a fool.
and all of your radiance and sweetness;
who is the nemesis of my aching, breaking heart.
