It all started with me listening to Aaliyah’s “Enough Said” (the fan-made SOLO version, because Drake is a pain in the ass to listen to), then I looked up “Drake on Aaliyah,” and a video popped up where Drake talks about how Aaliyah influenced his life…

Two, Too, To

"You're trying too hard," she said. "You're trying way too hard." He hung his head low and stared down at his busy fingers: thumbs twiddling, fingers lacing and unlacing. An uncomfortable silence hung in the air. Finally, he glanced up at her and asked solemnly, "So what would you have me do?" She leaned forward, grabbed… Continue reading Two, Too, To

Dear You, I want you to reach out for me... Deep inside, I DO. But this seemingly innate hesitation always gets the best of the worst of me.
