A simple note to explain doesn't seem long enough
To bring on one sheet my final feelings and thoughts

Yesterday I fell in love with a face.
Only for five minutes or so:
Wholly inappropriate, I know -
an excess of emotion displaced
while I tried my best to make you safe

A speed my body isn’t
My blood runs everywhere
With a temperature
Way too high
They torture me
Crippling my movements
