I seem to be

Inebriated with love.

My perfumes

Have begun of smelling of you.

The blushes on my face

Have become my tattoo.

My shadows too

Seem to look like you.

When I say my name,

I only hear you.

Because, you see,

I am totally inebriated with love,

All because of you.


Yes, I haven't kept myself

Really insulated or fenced.

But how does that 

Authorise you

To rob me of my heart 

And leave me desperately wanting

More and more of you?

Like hydrogen, not helium,

I have realised I’m not inert too.

Look how effortlessly 

You have got me reacting to you.

Help me. 

I am 

Reeling in love for you!

Spreading of molecules

Of one medium

Throughout another medium.

That’s diffusion.

And diffusion

Doesn’t occur in solids 

Where there’s no space 

Between the particles of matter.

I wonder how then

You managed to diffuse through

My mind, body, heart and soul

And become

The only thing to me 

That mattered?
