"WHAT IS THIS CALLED???"

 
Legs sit on the tree branch ...
Skin feels the fresh breeze ...
Eyes check the time endlessly ...
Looking around and in the horizon ... restless ...

Mind starts getting overwhelmed by the tension rising ...
Memories of good moments come
Like running scenes of a movie ...
Expectation grows every minute that passes
Bringing closer the encounter ...

Chest feels heart like a huge drum echoing on its walls ...
Senses are all ears to not let anything passes unnoticed ...

Forehead starts sweating ...
Restless movements of hands ...
Now mind can barely imagine the scenery
To be built any time close to this very moment ...

Reason is starting shutting down ...
Time is running out ...
Cheeks blushing ...
Paces aproaching ...
Heartbeats race like wild horses
Savoring their freedom ...

Finally,
Eyes get the first glimpse of the beloved ...
Pupils dilate signaling an undeniable welcome ...
Lips bite one another as could not fit in rest position ...
An unrehearsed smile comes in shy style ...
Everything seems awkward within ... out of tone ...
Gazes locked ... scanning mutually the faces ...
Breath gets shorter and shorter ...
All senses are in such an alert state
That even the sound of a single leaf falling on the ground
Can be heard loudly ...

Now
Four legs hang on the tree branch ... side by side ...
Hands little by little approaching ... flirting ... willing to match as one ...

Why all of these avalanche of events happen underneath?
What this person called beloved
Is or has that triggers so many emotions?
 
These are things we cannot explain ...
Words get mute when feelings take the lead ...
Heart tries to uncode what mind cannot ...
There is no space for reason to exist in this circunstance ...
Reason gets lost and blind ...
Heart is the only possible vehicle of expression ...
When all the strongest emotions
Make us slaves of their will ...

What all of this rollercoaster of emotions are called?

Love!

What else could be, after all?
