Emotional flush

Pink and plush.
Emotional flush.
Elevated leadership.
Restricted readership.
Pain and pleasure.
No means to measure.
Except thy heart.
And yes, my heart.
I cried, for I knew.
The last one – you.
Felt good. Still feels good.
And then my breath erodes.
And then I live again.
To writhe in pain.
With nothing to gain.
Am I insane?
