Below is the poem of the day entitled Love fever which was written by poet Sea Shell.

Love fever

It was to meet; my eyes with his. Why, he’s no stranger; do I know him? Why is he staring? Something’s wrong with me? Our eyes lock and my heart somersaults. Now my loin constricts and my heart’s racing. At the exit, I’ve no business to turn back. But something’s burning my back; Laser rays or his eyes…yes, he’s looking straight at me! My hand shakes as I unlock my car; I did miss the red light! Thanks God, I’m safe home. Some curses under breath bring back my senses. But this night I’m not to sleep. His eyes are not leaving me. Gosh! I’m smiling and laughing foolishly. My temperature’s rising! I take a shower and refresh the wrinkled bedsheet. First dawn, I sit staring at the fan. Oh! I’m in love. Heart longing, I’m there again and again in the days to follow, eyes thirsty, searching but for his eyes!
