    Would Be Nice

    I Wish My Brain And Heart Could Agree

    I just wish that every once in a while my brain and heart would be in agreement. Instead I'm consumed by the never ending rival between what my heart feels, and what my brain is telling me I should do. Their arguing drives me crazy.

    Sometimes I Wish, But Only Sometimes.

    When a crush lasts too ridiculously long, without resolution; when I should have stopped thinking about her two weeks ago, for my own good, because we haven't made a connection; when my thinking about her no longer provokes the butterflies in my stomach and tingles up my spine...
