Asylum Bound

I'm not really sure how to explain 
This strange feeling with my feeble brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane.

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me 
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound. 
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound. 

I'm not really sure how to explain
This madness taking over my brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane. 

Well, I'm not quite sure I can complain 
About the thoughts of you that consume my brain- 
They're driving me a good kind of insane. 

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound.  
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound.

If I believed in love, then in love we would be. 
You set this bitter, cold heart ablaze inside me. 
I only feel sane when you come around- 
Without you my dear, I'll be asylum bound. 

No, I'm not quite sure how to explain
This strange new feeling with my feeble brain-
But my dear, you drive me perfectly insane.

    The mark if a good poet is to inspire others.. With that being said the mark of an amazing poet is to touch another's soul.. And that my dear you have... thank you for that...Michael

    I loved the feeling that this poem gave while reading it aloud Anne.Excellent.

    This seemed like a villanelle to me and that form is often used for this type of theme. Nicely done.

    Interesting form used in presenting this idea..Thanks for your visit to my work..I hope that you are just writing about this situation and not your life..Sara

    PS One day in the future you'll look back and see who the feeble minds really were;and it won't be you Anne.

    "...a new kind of insane." A wonderful poem. Love is a form of insanity, especially when it is new. I remember... Jack
