Five Minutes a Day: Fifteen (A Love Song)

15 – A Love song

When people are in love they say such insipid things
“You’re the apple of my eye”, “You’re the wind beneath my wings”
I struggle with the urge to run right over and amend them
So now here it is; my repressed addendum.

“When I’m with you it’s like walking on air”
Implausible, but I suppose it could be –
Very disconcerting and it ends in A&E

“With you, babe, I’m head over heels”
A large amount of blood is rushing to my head
I’m feeling rather sick and I’ve lost feeling in my legs

“All you need is love, love is all you need”
Think about oxygen; you might want to breathe.
