Running the risk

if love is like a plague

then this disease is a blessing,

inflicting pain and torment

on a body fit for distress,

if love is eternal

then its lack is pure damnation,

a twisting of the scalpel

in a heart full of duress.

if I contract your love

and it runs rife in my body

a virus, or bacteria that rewrites every cell

then, you are my salvation

as the sickness in me is growing

with every gentle kiss and every meaningful caress.
