Reeses Winning Entry

An amorous epidemic,
Comparable to the common cold.
Eyes wet with tears of cardiac congestion
And a plague of pathos.
Body aching with untold whispers,
Stifled songs of desire.
Every cell screaming for another.
Unrequited love is the most romantic,
But the strongest storm to weather.
She waits for the culture,
For the facts to tell her of the rose-colored creatures
Sharing her existence.
Not a victim of the infestation,
But a victim of accidental attraction.
