they warned me of this sickness
that breaks you from within
“your eye sight will go blurry
your head will ache and spin”
-they called it love.

i took a walk one morning
and tripped into your arms
you said hello there clumsy
blinding me with charm
-what is love?

you asked me for my number
i used my lucky pen
you said you’d call me later
if only i knew when
-can this be love?

you called about a million times
and i was there to answer
we wined and dined so many times
you spread through me like cancer
-this is love.

you took me out to see the world
and asked for one small thing
to show you love without my clothes
while offering a ring
-i gave him love.

i gave myself to you that night
but woke up all alone
how could i lose the only pair
of arms that felt like home
-my eye sight is blurry

your number’s disconnected
my love will never cease
and now our daughter’s come of age
to know of this disease
-the disease of love.
