Do you hear me? he asked – only inches away.
I nodded, not trusting my words at the moment.
The things he whispered made me blush.
I cleared my throat; uncomfortable being so close.
About to move away, he caught my wrist.
Don’t leave, he insisted. You know you want this.
I looked into his eyes; wanting to say no –
but a part of me felt a rush that grabbed my throat.
I was powerless to let him go.
I’m connected to you as you are to me.
His words rang in my head like the pealing of a bell.
You’re mad, I told him through gritted teeth.
Madness, he agreed. Don’t worry; I won’t tell.
I collapsed in his arms, and he melted into me.
In my head, I hear him speak.
He tells me things wild and undeniably crazy.
Madness is his name, and my name’s the same.
