    What he wants is something soo unthinkable.
    How can he expect me to walk away from the only
    thing I have ever known.
    How can he expect me to take his promises to heart.
    I listen and I think and I feel.
    And feeling is the mistake that I made.
    Because If I didnt feel I would
    never even consider his words.
    But feelings swirl and dance
    and take on a life of their
    own.
    They seem to talk louder than the words even
    he is saying.
    SHHHH Heart hush I can't think.
    I hear his words with my head and Im
    singing that dang song
    "NO NO NO"
    But my heart is already thinking of ways to
    leave.
    My heart is already packing up feelings I've had
    for sooo long and replacing them with
    these new crazy exciting feelings.
    Wait Heart not so fast.
    The voice of reason in my head seems
    to get quieter and quieter.
    My heart beats louder and louder.
    Every Lubb Dubb is an expression
    of how much I want to say
    YES YES YES.
    But Im so scared. I cant imagine what the future will
    be like. I cant imagine what my past will look like.
    And I am so drawn.
    Janet Jackson in my head "Like a moth to a flame"
    Dang Dang Dang. what do I do
    how do I answer.
    I need silence there is too much NOise in my
    thinking.

    What a heat felt piece, seems like
    your mind and your heart are in a battle.
    Just take your time don't be in a haste
    the right thing will come to you.
    BTW....I know how you feel :)
    Very nice write sista.


    Much Luv

    That stanza just hit me. When those thoughts start going round and round, having you coming and going, it's so hard to decide what to do. Like 4Everluv, I'm feeling this here.

    if I could say a thousand words Sis.
    It is Unbelievable
    The feud between our heart and our head
    and finding a decision that is best for both of them.......
    Make everything so much more complex
    If Love is involved.....Psht
    I aint even gotta say any more
    Flow on Sis.
