This knowledge

by Rosemary King


Now I understand what all that fuss was about

It pulses. Like a being inside me. This knowledge. 

My skin is hot to the touch. 

Someone pressed his palm to my forehead. 

"You're burning" he said

He is correct. 

To love is to burn. 

So said Marianne from Sense and Sensibility.

She nearly died of love. I wonder what will happen to me.
