Uggggh.. I Hate This Feeling!

Love can make you think about the truest things. I for one enjoy the topic of love in its darkest and lightest forms.


Right now I want to jump of a cliff,

I want to scream into my pillow,

I want to fly to anywhere,

I just don't want to feel this way.

First of all, why do I even feel this way?

It was never part of the plan,

The audacity he has to infiltrate my mind like this,

My goodness, he deserves a beating.

I mean, his just a guy,

A really cute and hot hot guy,

His taller than me, like I literally have to stand on my toes when we....

His beard... Mouth watering.

When I think of him my heart sinks,

My stomach feels funny,

My mind goes out of Namibia,

My whole self forgets everything else.

I can no longer think straight,

The image of his eyes are in my head,

The feeling of his lips lying naked on mine is in my head,

The intimacy of our hearts syncing is in my head.. What's going on?

You know what I love about him,

His upfront,

His neat and good looking,

His respectful and hardworking..

So please tell me how am I not supposed to fall for that,

Literally, the guy of my dreams,

I just want to be loved for who I am,

I want be secure.

Can he give me this? I don't know,

Am I willing to take the risk? I don't know,

However, I am going to follow my heart.

I am going to follow my arrow.

Great poem!

It tells the sensational feeling we feel at the beginning.

That magic.

Take care of yourself. Memory lane can hurt

This is a well-written beautifully expressed poem. Yes, love is blind and most of the time, we just follow our "arrow" as you have rightly mentioned.THanks for sharing.

Hi Sharan.

Thank you so much for your comment. It's always a pleasure to share.

Take care.

They always say " follow your heart "

Followed by

" but don't forget your brain "

Lol, these makes us crazy hahaha

Seriously, if the situation isn't critical if everything is flowing in the right direction. Don't go for a second thought, go and keep those butterflies in your stomach alive.

Love is in the air! Have an awesome day Ms David!

Hi Oceanuniverse,

Yes we all have and everytime it's somehow different.. Which I find facinating and strange.

oceanuniverse from California on March 14, 2021:

Beautiful poem and wow haven't we all felt those feelings when we fall for a man.

Hertha David (author) from Windhoek, Namibia on March 14, 2021:

Hi Pamela., how have you been?

The conflict surely is intense. It's facinating how it's the same feeling all the time but still feels different and new.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 14, 2021:

I think you should follow your heart, Hertha. This is a sweet poem that tells of the conflict many of us go through when we are maybe getting into a new relationship.
