Love Virus


Awakened by a gurgle of the stomach
Rumbling, Grumbling
Heavy regurgitation
Near the point of dehydration
Rocking back and forth
Waiting on the next episode
Constant pain and irritation
Sounds of thunder struck my chest
Weakened to the point of bed rest
Too sick to even get myself dressed
Feverish and nauseous
How long will this endure
Day after day, searching for a cure
Some type of antidote
Perhaps a glass of ginger ale or a hot toddy
A warm bath
Filled with lavender crystals to sooth my body
Tears flowing frequent, not one cloth to spare
No voices tended with a concerning care
Miserable and humiliated
Perplexed in my mind getting frustrated
Of course I had no clue, in 24 hours I underestimated what a love bug can do

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
