It is an unreasonable affliction of the worst sort.

A tedious thing that was both avoidable and unavoidable. 

Once it sinks its claws into the body it starts go grow.

The longer it sits the more impossible it will be to cure.

The symptoms are vast and varied, both good and bad.

It could cause new heights of euphoria or sinking chasms of despair. 

It could make you into so much more than you were before or shatter you down into infinite pieces.

It could cause irrational thoughts and urges leading to great inspiration or terrible decisions.

This affliction has no cure even though it has been around as long as we humans have. 

You understand why I hesitate to fall in love and why I crave it, don’t you?
