Intaglio

It is a reminder that I’m human.

Emotions relay relay agitating my mind,
and I do not want this to be for naught.

I can say with absolute conviction absolutely nothing.
But my heart and my heart alone says I love you,
and I swear to God I believe it.

Four years at love’s doorstep have clearly crazed me,
and try as I might with all my might not to get roped in,
Your very presence tugs at these strings.
I am entangled by this dizziness.

Nothing can eradicate these feelings forever, dear.
I can deny and lie to myself but the truth breaks forth.
I cannot help but fall deeper and deeper for you.
And like an artist’s acid authors art,
your name is etched upon my heart.
