You are the poison
that spews from the
snake's teeth,
breaking my skin and
puncturing my veins.
Your words 
and your actions
run through my arteries
as I am continuously
infected with your love
and affected by your beauty.
My blood cells cling
onto the words
that you speak,
instantly clotting
my bloodstream
with every word spoken.
You are contagious.
An airborne disease 
that I inhale every
single time that 
you're around me.
A pathogen that 
seeps its way into
my body, destroying
my immune system.
I am poisoned with
your everlasting love.
You have infected me
and I can't get enough.
