Zeros and ones :: songs and prose


Texts versus romance,
you go and add it all you want,
we’re not robots inside a grid.”

Sometimes I find myself so baffled by love. I sound older than my years to say I do not quite understand all the machinations of modern romance, and that often I am just muddling through it all, trying hard to just be myself in all of it. I was never one for playing games, disguising my feelings, or relying on well-tested tricks to get ahead in matters of the heart.

I think that science and love do not play well together, and that when I try to sort it all out all I do is over-think. Just as in the critical nature of self-editing as a writer, there is something pure and raw and real that gets lost when you over-think love.

Though, I do love the mathematics, and the science, and the brain meets the heart kind of lyrics that make-up this song; geek music love personified, or something like that.
