Boy your loving is all I think about

1) Why not a comma after 'boy'? Is this grammar correct, because it looks like two subjects?

2) Why not 'love'? What's the difference in this sentence?


Since "Boy" is direct address, one would normally separate it from the rest with a comma.

As for "loving" vs. "love" ... "loving" implies the physical act of love much more strongly than "love" alone would — so it's plain to see what the speaker is after.

  • "Boy" is also slightly ambiguous in this context due to the exclamation, "Boy!" as in: "Wow, your loving is all I think about!"
