I’m fixated on you
Intoxicated by your being
As you course through me
Like cancer through my bloodstream
You’re a star, struck down
With my heart as the collateral damage

It pulses with radioactivity
Tinged into melancholy charcoal

I appear calm and placid
But inside me roars a lion
Refusing to accept defeat
After being incinerated
By a lightning storm
On a ‘quiet’ March night

The sun shall not rise again
On my sodden body
With a gaping black hole
In my chest

Eternally my eyes shall stare
Up at heaven
Praying for amnesia
I do not think I’ve done wrong
In loving you so
But here I am
Helpless and unhinged
I hope you’re alive
Treat my heart well
