where is my mind by sboydag

So where is my mind? It is not on studying, that is for sure. I am stuck in a daydream: and the result is this poem about the anatomy and function of the limbic system.

–You are in limbus, on the edge, of the innermost part of my brain.

Please whirl me around, in my limbic system.

Control the emotions, response and hormonal secretion, with your spin.

Kiss my cingulate gyrus and coordinate my sensory input with your emotions.

Tame my aggressive behavior with the whip, in the place, in my brain in between the sulcus, that is superior to my corpus callosum.

Dear love, you are like the body of fornix, you are a sweet arching fibrous band of nerves–connect my hippocampus to my hypothalamus.

Consolidate my new memories of you there.

Touch the horseshoe-shaped thing found in my temporal lobes next to my reflexive amygdala.

I can find you; navigate through space to find my hands in yours.

You fill the space between my ears with the scent of you; it is rising up in my olfactory cortex.

Whisper in my ear–secrete yourself all over my thalamus, that large dual lobed mass will lose motor control as it receives auditory sensations from the sound of your voice.

You are the commotion that motivates and moods my brain.

Reel within my limbic system where we will twirl, in that old mammalian system—————-

As is evident, I am not in the mood to review the neurology section. The limbic system anatomy is surely not going to be on the exam.  I only have 2 more non working days before the test, in true fashion for myself, it can wait till Monday.

I am just a fake poet, it is meant to be amusing.
