1. Falling in love is so easy,
  2. except of course,
  3. when it comes to yourself.
  4. You will trip head over heels,
  5. for a girl who flashes you a smile
  6. on a bus ride.
  7. While twenty-three years later
  8. you have not learned how to love
  9. your own depth and divinity
  10. your eyes and your hips
  11. your chapped lips.
  12. Your love is a virus
  13. of which only you are immune.
  14. Yet its absence is what's killing you.
