two beings in one

My heart has been mixed like a fresh romaine salade
you toss in the drama right along with the mozzerella cheese  
before I even knew my wants I was 
running away from my needs. 
I'm so for love I would do a walk for it like it was AIDS. 
Or travel back in time and battle for it like I was in the crusade.
But lately I've been feeling like a marago round that never ever ends. 
I'm the child begging to get off but workers can't detect the problem. 
Eventually I have to get off. Just like eventually it will be a man or a women
that ultimately rescues me from the insanities of single life. 
Eventually I'll do a little twirl for whomever it is. 
Sometimes I wonder if my standards are way too high 
but than I'm afraid that if I settle I'll miss the one 
I've been waiting to finally be that ride or die for. 
I like the apple and the banana. 
My heart must be obese because I can't seem
find my imfamous fanta girl.
