In Love with a Doctor

Reading Time: 1 minute

An intense love by Amrinder. A patient’s crush for the is celebrated here, for .

He took my head in both his hands

And looked deep into my eyes,

He did not see their

Nor the love in them that lies.

It was for jaundice and for pallor

That he searched my eyes and !

Trust my fate to make me love

A doctor to my chagrin.

With a look of supreme indifference

His on my pulse he laid,

And for it being fast and bounding

Dearly with a ‘disease’ I paid.

My heart he said he would palpate

For signs of a thrill,

Thrilled I was for I thought,

He’d hear it to his fill.

For my flushed cheek and dry lips,

My fluttering lids and unsteady gait,

My heaving and pounding heart,

He said he’ll have to investigate!

He who pretends to know all ills,

And more so their cures;

With no of relief

Into his trap of love, allures.

But not,

For all the flattery in the ,

My love for him I’ll trade,

Serious, stupid though he is

I love him as he’s made.
