english is not my first language, and i’m trying to write a poem. can you say “this feeling is driving me up the wall” to explain the frustration of having a crush or is it unnatural? i also don’t want to mean it in a sexual way haha
As a native English speaker, I can say that it would be unusual to use the phrase "driving me up the wall" to describe something generally positive (having a crush on someone), but "driving me crazy" might be appropriate.
Typically people say "driving me up the wall" to express frustration at a negative situation, e.g. "My computer keeps crashing and it's driving me up the wall", or "my boss won't stop hassling me today, he's driving me up the wall!"
