Crazy In Love


I watched the mist roll along the ground,
It was a cold and moonless night;
I thought I saw you standing there,
I knew that couldn't be right

But I seem to see you everywhere,
No matter where I go;
In light, in shadows, in the corner of my room,
In summer's sun and winter's snow

I got it bad and there is no cure,
It's a sickness they call love;
There's no medication, and frequently
The symptoms can get pretty rough

You see and hear things that aren't there,
But you want them to be there so bad;
Your mind plays tricks, and your heart plays along,
It's the alternative to going mad

So I'll keep playing this harmless game,
I'll pretend you're in love with me;
Who knows, maybe someday you'll play the game
And we'll both plead insanity!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
