the tragic lover

i have a fatal flaw
a hamartia if you will
i care too much
and too deeply
my heart is not a gradient scale
it is an on and off switch
i do not smile
i grin and
i do not giggle
i laugh with my head
leaned back
i do not cry
i sob, i heave breaths
until there are none left
i do not love
i do not love
i do not love
i fall
i fall too deep
i feel too deep
