When I’m falling

You walk past the door 

My heart goes with you

Pulsing, trying hard to be in rhythm to the steady beat of yours 

Do you notice?

The flush of pink coursing through my neck into my cheeks

Do you notice?

My breath hitch when you’re around

Suddenly I’m aware of every part of my body

Waiting for the slightest touch from your callused fingers

Do you notice?

The hunter-like glare, as my eyes hungrily, desperately search for yours 

There’s a pain in my chest

A sinking feeling in my stomach

Or a heavy hand, exerting pressure on my heart

Is this what it’s like to fall in love?
