I Shouldn't MAG

I know I shouldn’t
But I have to
Magnets pull me toward heartbreak

I know I shouldn’t
But I do
Blindly falling when hopes dash

I know I shouldn’t
But when I don’t
I panic, systems crash
Wishing for what never will be,
I hope, hope for the impossible …

The phone rings.
“Light My Candle”
I scream.
I know I shouldn’t
But “hello?” I answer.
Tingly needles poke
When he replies
Love “I know I shouldn’t” but I do.
I am.

I like this but I am a little confused, but It's a wonderful piece. I like it becuase it isnt' handed to the reader, I have to think about what it is your saying and interperet it.

This is fantastic. I think every girl can relate to this in some way or another. It is beautifully written, and I absolutely love the piece. Keep writing, you obviously have talent!

People who think sitting in a church will make you a christian must think that sitting in a garage will make you a car.

Wow this is great!
