Those parts having this effect on me are your voice and your picture. I do not have this feeling when I am around you, so it must have to do with missing you. But the strange thing is, I felt it even before I met you, when all I had was your voice and your picture. So, honestly I can't make much sense of it at all.

The effect is like cement in my stomach. My chest feels like it's on fire and it spreads, white hot, across my shoulders and up my neck. It's a fire that dries up my throat so that I'm choked up. With veiny fingers it ripples up either side of my head until my skull feels like it might be burst open like a peanut shell. But it only gets that advanced every now and then. Usually it just stays in my chest.

It's something about you. And I have no idea what it is or why it comes over me the way it does. Some people might say it's love or infatuation, but I don't really care if they're right or not. I don't exactly like how it feels. It makes me feel so vulnerable, so completely naked and unweighted.

Not exactly what you had in mind for a compliment, is it?
