Equal parts hopeless romance and cynical disdain.
Equal parts wanting to wrap myself around you, and to stay this far away.
Equal parts raucous laughter and melancholy reflection.
Just as many parts that desire to escape into dreams as there are those not wanting to miss a moment of this waking life.
So you can see what a dilemma I am (in).
