When he holds my hand, I get motion sick. I feel a little nauseous when he says I’m the one who makes him smile. I get dizzy when he winks at me. When he kisses me on the cheek I feel like I am falling off a diving board. What starts out as a swan dive ends up being a belly flop.

I take a whole bottle of Dramamine and pass out in his arms.

That’s when I realized most of my dreams are nightmares. I dreamt of a stuffed bear from the carnival. The prize toy he gives me glares at me, as if I’m responsible for his being stuffed.

That man, he rips my eyes out of my head when he says I am pretty. Maybe I’m looking for too much?

All those guys, the ones I fell for, they are in you. He broke my heart, and he broke my heart, and you, you broke my heart, too.

This is how it feels falling for you.
