    My soul in distress
    because I repress,
    I fail to express this -
    This simple emotion.

    Love.

    Simple but complex,
    Irresistible but dangerous,
    How it came to this I can only guess.
    How simple fondness grows to love,
    No one comprehends but it occurs.

    Invisible to all predictions,
    Unseen by all premonitions.
    It tiptoes up to you
    and you're caught out of position.
    Even though secretly we all wish for such a surprise.
    One pleasant, though it often leads to demise.
    You can't touch love, or see it with eyes,
    it just simply…IS.

    And in it's conceit
    Love makes sure to sit
    Right on the throne
    Of your heart.

    Yes, the weight of love rests heavy on the heart. Loved the way you posed this poet.
