In Love With Stress

Poem By Michael J. Burt

stress, stress, and more stress

i think i might be in love with stress
or stress is in love with me
stress always seems to find me
relocate to be with me
and send me
straight over the top

every circumstance brings stress
and when you let it in, it won't leave
stress is in love with me

i want to get everything done
and stress is in my way
over here and over there,
sending my pressure higher
causing me more despair

stress, stress, and more stress

i think stress is in love with me
all day at work,
teasing and pleading
asking and begging
let me in, let me in

my stomach is in knots
my fingernails are low
my heart can't take it anymore
i think i'm in love with stress

can't eat, can't sleep
trying to get over you,
but i can't, i won't
and the medicine won't help me

stress, stress, and more stress

i think i'm in love with stress,
or stress is in love with me
