Love Poems for an Existential Crisis- by morgan
When I fell in love with you,
My body knew first.
My heart went sort of like beat, tap, beat
every time my eyes took you in
and flipped you upside down and right side up
in the back of my brain.
The rhythm of my sleep became relaxed,
And I could only be warmed
By your heat.
Science you say, love I say.
Was it science that put you
Before my eyes?
It was science that kissed me so?
Science might react, but circumstances are ever-changing…
Nay, I rebuke this notion that my body knew first.
Because even if your touch made my heart go
tip, tap, beat
I let you in the door, using my feet
That I firmly planted.
