You?re the cause ~ I?m the effect
by Deidre Love Graham

I can?t even count how many times I tried to fight it.
I fought against it, with it, for it, 
And when it finally took me 
I dropped helplessly in to the threshold of its pulse. 
I love the feeling. I hold dear to it.

Inside of my mental doubting 
I hate to think of the future in failure. 
Since my head runs on blood 
and I know my heart controls that function, 
I?ll follow my heart. 

What I feel is fear alone and dependency is independent
on the individual.

Giving in and giving up are two different things 
that are just alike. 
Both take a piece of you.

I fear for you. I want to make you feel. 
Twiddle your thoughts into comprehension 
and reach inside you, past your mask, into the ?you? no one knows. 
Your eyes seem to change when you look at me. 
Good or bad, I don?t know- but maybe its better that way.
I want to untangle your mind.   * Let me know*
Inspiration lies deep within me reacting from your existence.
I love the feeling. I hold dear to it. 
You?re the cause; I?m the effect.
