You're Heavy On My Mind

Written by: Mary Nagy

It's silent
except for the buzzing
of the flourescent lights
in this deserted classroom.
I should be studying
but my thoughts keep drifting
back to our talk.
Is it possible
to make time for ''us''
without taking from ''them''? 
You're so heavy on my mind
that the Behaviorist Theory
really seems irrelevant.

We both know 
we've lost focus.
We admit 
that everything else
comes first.
Lifes daily turmoils...
Can't we leave it all
for one day? 

How do people do it? 
Their lives are packed
full at every minute
yet they still manage
to spend time alone
together.
Does it take a special
kind of person? 
Are we just too
unorganized to manage this? 

If only for a moment
I want to look 
into your eyes
and fall in love
again.
I want to lose myself 
in the dark mystery
of those brown eyes 
that have watched me 
change from a child
to a woman.

The buzzing 
of the flourescent lights
remind me
that I only have 2 days
to study.
You're still heavy on my mind.
