    HEART versus MIND

    My heart says to love you

    My mind says to leave you behind

    My heart says you need me

    My mind says I’m being too kind

    My heart says forgive you

    My mind says it’s for the last time

    My heart says I’ll miss you

    My mind says stop being so blind

    My heart says that you’ll change

    My mind says it’s just too late

    My heart says there’s hope still

    My mind says you’ve sealed your own fate

    My heart says it’s broken

    My mind says to cry and move on

    My heart says it’s ready

    My mind says the heart’s never wrong

    • Ricardo, I love this and the back-and-forth between the mind and the heart I think is something we’ve all felt at some point. That tug-of-war can drive a person crazy. I know it has for me. I love this piece. I am going to include it in our newsletter today, so please keep an eye out for it! <3 Lauren

    • Hi! I really love the theme of contrasting the knowledge in your mind with the desires of your heart. It’s fun to see creative takes on age old adeges. Your last line really made me feel something; I felt that in my heart 🙂

      • Thank you so much, Saga. It makes me happy to hear you enjoyed my poem. If one has to win over the other, I prefer it to be the heart 🙂
