Can I Call It Love?

By Ushnaa Zaman, Editor

Can I call it love
If he gives me butterflies?
If he makes me blush?
If he makes my heart race?

 

Can I call it love
If he’s always on my mind?
If he’s all I ever talk about?
If he’s the only one I want?

 

Can I call it love
If he never talks to me?
If he never notices me?
If he doesn’t know I exist?

 

Can I call it love
If I ache every time he walks away from me?
If I am wounded every time he ignores me?
If I die every time he talks to her?

 

Can I call it love
If I lose sleep because of him?
If I stop eating because of him?
If I feel worthless because of him?

 

Can I call it love?
Or is it just misery?
