The Feeling

My blood rushes.

My heart stops,

My breathe becomes deep,

My muscles tense, like ropes holding me motionless

What is this feeling that makes me so incapacitated!?

 

My lungs stop, the air I do manage to draw in is icy cold.

It pierces through my chest like a paining needle.

My heart starts to beat; the beats are methodical slow at first but then rapid,

Almost instantly, a searing pain comes in my chest,

The sudden acceleration making the pain unbearable

What is this feeling that makes me so defenceless!?

 

I would take the bullet meant to kill you,

The poison meant to ail you,

I would absorb your fear,

Fight your battle,

Withdraw you anger,

Face your terrors,

I would be your shield,

What if this feeling that makes me so courageous!?

 

I see not my pain or anguish,

Nor do I see my anger at insults thrown at me,

I do not see my fear at my terrors

Nor do I see the ghosts of my past

I do not see my failures or my accomplishment

I am blinded

What is this feeling that makes me so blinded!?

 

How do I act?

Am I good enough?

Am I too persistent?

Do I spend enough time with you?

Do I try hard enough?

What is this feeling that makes me so confused!?

I would face a pack or wolves,

Kill a wild boar,

Hunt a lion,

Wrestle a crocodile,

I would even travel into hell for you,

And do battle with the very demons that would tear me apart.

What is this feeling that makes me invincible?

 

I smile uncontrollably

I see good in all,

I let my emotions run free,

I laugh at even the simplest joke,

I am discovering the high of this emotion.

What is this feeling that makes me fill with ecstasy!?

 

This feeling is caused by one person,

By one being,

By the look in her eye,

The way she smiles,

The way she walks,

The way she talks,

They way she seems to radiate the room around her.

What is this feeling that makes me feel so?

 

What is this feeling that cannot be explained?

This feeling that makes my world spin at incontestable speeds?

This feeling that lowers all my emotional barriers?

This feeling that renders me incapable of anger in its presence?

This feeling that makes my mind incapacitated?

There is no description for this feeling.

Only that it is indescribable!

The End
