“If I think of you,
I quiver from head to foot.
If I think of you
tears flood my eyes.
If I pass you my heart quickens
and the blood seems to leave my body.
If I look into your eyes
a sudden fire burns in my veins.
If I touch you
I am as one possessed with madness;
my arms tremble and
my limbs totter beneath me.
To love you is to suffer
the pangs of an intolerable agony.”
