What Real Love Is

November 7, 2008
By Jordan Calcagno, Bolingbrook, IL

When you think about her face
do the giant monarch butterflies flutter?
Does your normally moist mouth
dry out like the Sahars desert in the summer?
Does your broken heart beat
like you've had twenty cans of Monster?
Does your usual steady breathing
turn into gasps for air under water?
If that's what real love really is
how come it feels like murder?
