In My Head

In my head,
In the dark labyrinthine tunnels
of my twisted mind,
We’re a perfect match
There are no complications.
No Spouses, Children or Family
Stand in between.

It’s just the two of us
In my selfishly formed utopian universe.
Where burning passion and
Sweet tender affection
dance in perfect union
to the rhythm of two hearts
that beat frantically for each other

So my love,
I’ll surf the billowing waves
Of the World Wide Web.
If only to glean the tiniest scraps
Of data that confirm that you feel
the faintest hint
Of the same emotions
That keep me awake at night

I’ll trawl your Twitter timeline
Investigate your Instagram feed
Forage through your Facebook posts
For that sign to validate my obsession
I’ll stalk discreetly
Check out your partner
Your family, our mutual friends and
Passing acquaintances.

I know your schedule and your habits
How you like your eggs,
What you had for supper,
The fact that you skipped gym this morning
I’ll plot and scheme on how we’ll meet
But until then,
You will know of neither
The intensity of my passion nor
How vividly your face is etched
in the quiet violence of my dreams
