The Physical Will Always Show The Mental

I can feel my heart pounding
Hammering against my chest
Wracking my body
Heaving and straining

When did this become the norm?
My cheeks flushed and rosy
Heat rising to my ears
Mouth stretching in a sheepish grin

Antagonizing butterflies
They line the insides of my stomach
Their scaled wings flapping at me
Sweet terrors, lovely reminders

My body is the biggest betrayal
Of feelings I try to suppress
When I am not with you
They only cause me to lose my concentration

Oh, my mind and my heart
At constant torment
Of keeping a smile on my face
And keeping me in line
