The Five Senses of Crazy – Author Debra McLain


I hate the way you make me feel,

when you intrude upon my dreams.

You took my heart and soul with you;

please, leave all my senses be.


I hate the way you look at me,

undressing me with a glance.

You know I melt under your spell;

please, wake me from my trance.


I hate the way you speak to me;

your voice; the music, to my song.

You know I will never forget;

how I laughed all night long.


I hate the way you smell me,

my scent, being the air you breathe.

You know I am the perfume;

sprayed on your handkerchief.


I hate the way you taste me,

my skin, salty from our love.

You know I am the craving;

you are always thinking of.


I hate the way you touch me,

my body, the canvas, to your brush.

You work your magic fingers;

making me quiver, and blush.


All five senses are on strike;

no longer do I need, or want.

Stay out of my dreams, forever more,

quit being cruel, with all your taunts.
