I think that I have fallen in love
And my heart is spinning out of control
It has been wanting to burst out of my chest
The first time that I met you
I hid it at first
I was wary like I always was
I did not know how to act
I was in unexplored territory
I tried to get you out of my mind
As if you do not exist in my world
But every time I see you, my heart is a-flutter
I cannot control it anymore
I have become a creature of my heart’s machinations
Why does love seem to defy logic and rational thinking?
As if the two domains cannot coincide
Would it still be love if one starts thinking instead of feeling?
Is love a choice?
I don’t think so.
You can’t choose whom you fall in love with but you can choose whom you commit to
Why am I over-analyzing this anyway?
When my love has little chance of being reciprocated?
You confuse me
You really do
Time would tell and would unravel this mystery for me
I just continue to sit in a corner and pretend that everything’s okay when it’s not
Distractions, sometimes distractions are not enough
Damn my heart for falling for you when everything still seems so unclear
It is not our fault that the world is wrapped in fog
Dense and suffocating sometimes
That one cannot see two feet beyond his arm’s length
We are all caught by our own view of the oasis
That we cannot form a single image of the oasis
The mirage evolves and transforms with the passing of the seasons
I know how I feel
But I do not know how it is on your part
Your heart is an enigma
The same way that your face has and always has been a mask
Would I risk my heart on a possibility?
A possibility but a non-event nonetheless
Would you like me to break your mask?
Or would you shun me for even trying?
I am at a no man’s land
I am at another fork
But the situation cuts my heart like a knife
I stand before you like I stand before a precipice
Another step and I would fall deep down into the churning waters of the Pacific
Do I jump?
Would you hold my hand and jump with me?
