Unmeasurable

“I'm very good with numbers.
But not so good with love. 
I tried to quantify my feelings
into neat little rows of figures. 
I counted goosebumps
and shivers
tallied skipped heartbeats
and measured breaths. 
I thought that if I could put a number
to the way I feel about you
it all might make
some kind of sense.
But the truth is
there is no logic
to the way I love you.
And it frightens me.”
