Are you aware of this love? (New love poem 25 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

I cannot stop thinking
About you;
I have tried and failed;
It’s something I cannot
Understand;
The more I try to remove
My mind from you,
The more my mind
Is fixed on you;
Can you say you have not
Highjacked my heart?
That is exactly what
You have done.
I am no longer free.
When I am sleeping,
I dream of you;
When I am awake,
I think only of you;
You occupy my mind,
You occupy my time;
You occupy my heart.
You have gripped it firmly.
Are you aware of this love?
