you should try it sometime

by Nanette Bellman

i'm the complete opposite of what you are.
just like you are, of what i want you to be.
but it's something that i'm dealing with.
you say that you don't let your heart
over power your brain.
well if it wasn't for my heart
over powering my brain
i would have been gone a long time ago.


Author's Note: just say thank you.

Good write Nanette and oh yes, the tug between the brain and heart. Years ago I dated a young woman 20 years my junior. She knew she loved me madly and I agreed it was mad to let yourself love someone 20 year your senior. She was quite upset when I went my separate way but now we still exchange emails.

ahh...and the struggle shines thru again. you and i both know exactly what you're going though and how frustrating. what a gorgeous way to make the bold statement though...follow me, and we'll see where this goes sort of thing. his turn to react. don't wait forever...you've got a fine heart & mind.

I like the challenge of the title most of all.
