As I look into your eyes
I wonder:
Where does it leave us?
Like really;
Is this it?

Rush of emotions, mostly negative,
chaos and destruction–
distraught rules over my emotional range.
All the time a thought, this thought,
Will you be alright?

Oh My Darling,
You don’t know how much I despise you
for winning over my own survival instinct.
