You cause an inconsistency

A strange anomaly, a sudden glitch

An abrupt, aching mass inside of me

An unexpected rise in tone and pitch

Falling swiftly to earth from a dead dream

And waking with a breathless start

You cause an uninvited out-of-placeness

And add sourness to sweetheart

Maybe it's not healthy to breakdance in a waltz

Or to crack whispered psalms with a euphoric shout

But the skip of my heartbeat and drum of my pulse

Erase every doubt
