How do I measure what I’m feeling inside?
Is it with scales or a measuring cup?
Or perhaps it’s a ruler that needs to be used?
It’s hard to say what it is that I’m measuring,
Let alone work out what I should use.
I am told it is love, but love is so……nice.
But this. This hurts like hell, a thump to the chest.
It feels like a drug and this trip is bad,
but drugs can be measured and analysed too.
This just lurks in the system waiting to pounce.
Perhaps if I mix it with acid
It will fizzle away to nothing?
Or what if I combine it with helium
and hope it will float far away?
There must be a tonic or potion
That will start to dissolve my devotion
To the one who is causing me all of this pain.
It’s one hundred percent chemical,
of that I am sure.
But how do I measure the amount I have in me
and does anyone know of a cure?
