Too much of Love by Eric Steven Sergey

 The oxygen that gives me breath, the food
That I must eat, the water that I drink
Are life’s essential elements, so good
And pure in form but, then, I need to think
That too much of these things can threaten life:
Oxygen burns and water drowns and now
Obesity from too much food is rife
Within our modern world and so, somehow
I must consider if your love is like
Those necessary requisites which I
Need to survive and, if it seems to strike
Me that a surfeit might cause mine to die,
I must distance me from you to save my heart
From suffering a shock. So, shall we part?
