As you flow through my BRAIN, as free as a dove NEURONS wiring and firing ENDOGENOUS drugs OXYTOCIN and VASOPRESSIN released by hugs when I think of your smile, I PERCEIVE love.

Here I was staring inside your brain, looking at your NOCIOCEPTORS to see any pain. GLUTUMATE got me going, GABA's keeping me tamed. NUCLEUS ACUMBENS releasing natural cocaine, ACETYLCHOLINE  helping me refrain and the truth is I don’t even know your name. It’s a shame, and rejection would make me spin like a globe and both these emotions are found in the TEMPORAL LOBE. I’m not old! But we're not getting any younger and when you're on my mind it inhibits my hunger with my LATERAL HYPOTHALAMUS fully disarmed my INSULA is craving to hold you in my arms. I got charm, but these butterflies take it away. I'm frozen, thanks to my LATERAL PERIAQUEDUCTAL GRAY as my SCN counts down the day, I pray this opportunity don't wither away stay! Wait did that sound weird?

The anticipation of you helps me grow my beard, I’m a deer, stoned from your light my RETICULAR FORMATION keeping me up at night. You're out of sight, but AREA V4 stored some pics now in REM sleep you making me trip vivid visions, coming in short blips only a matter of time before you fade into a myth. I won't trip. Stay calm 'cause my BRAIN is a chapel even though she's sweet like brown sugar and pineapple it’s a fight, but my NEURONS fire and grapple. My CORTEX is a Superbowl, and she’s the miracle tackle.

Neuroscience minds are potent, the time is open, to show the world how our lives awoken. Lookin’ for riches? But the mind is golden society blind, time to shine cause we’re omnipotent.

What is this? I got WOLFFIAN DUCTS.

MULLERIAN HORMONES must have had an influx. Now I'm confident like I'm wearing a tux, see’s me in a month and says, “aw shucks.”

It's enough, I’ll take it as being rejected cause none of your behaviors were truly PROCEPTIVE. I'm, a man, so I can accept it, ANDROGENS being produced leave me protected now. I’m connected to what we're hard wired to do, build your mind and your body, and let them chase you. It’s true but that cue can feel like an omen. The PGN suddenly releases SEROTONIN. OLFACTORY BULB picking up PHEROMONES as potent. Is this EVOLUTION? Or are you the one who my heart has chosen?

Now I’m frozen, stuck between nature and nurture. AMYGDALA sending fear signals that I’ll hurt ya, VASOPRESSIN inhibits that act in naked mole rats. McCLOSKEY proved that emotionally and socially in humans it evolved culturally impacting our BIOLOGY, SCIENTIFIC PSYCHOLOGY. We feel with our hearts, is just an analogy. NEUROSCIENCE can teach correct terminology. From love to pain, the most sophisticated entity in the world is our BRAIN. I believed and then became.

There's a lot of NEUROSCIENCE on thought and prayer and to have your faith accepted is awfully rare, but FMRI’s show someone’s near. FRONTAL LOBES and BROCA's area become aware. Like a real conversation but no one's there. Hey, what you mean? No one's there!

Heh, there's something else I didn't mention. The BRAIN lights up as if it's paying attention, releases ENDORPHINS, and relieves the tension. Throws your AMYGDALA into detention. A source of redemption, inhibits apprehension BIOLOGICALLY, gives you a blessin’ so stop stressin’.

Just have faith, the universal placebo, that your mind can make. So rewind the hate, and align your fate, your thoughts will make you great. This force is innate, to survive through mistakes, and stop badgering gays, a BIOLOGICAL component of their MPOA’s. 

INAH-3 seems to be smaller, have the courage of Michael Sam and stand taller.
