A Session With Myself

Since I work as a psychologist
I thought, well, let’s analyze myself
For I have this issue
That I think all the time about you
That I write all those poems
My heart that beats, bursts
and longs like crazy
And I have these strong and deep emotions
I did an intake interview,
observed my own behaviour,
asked a hundred questions,
I reflected, empathized
I took the DSM-V, the handbook
of all the mental disorders
But I could not find a box
I could be fitted in
So then I gave myself the diagnosis
that I am just madly in love with you



  1. Love exists outside all the boxes in the world and the only thing to treat it is requited love. Really loved your approach to this, Marieke.
