Write a poem about choosing between following your heart or following your head.
My soul aching,
So you calmed my heart.
Even at this start
You knew i wasn’t faking.
My head tired,
My body on fire.
My heart never a liar,
This love never mired.
My heart I did hear,
My head i did heed.
No reason to plead,
My whole self no longer in fear.
Love You R...
Worry floods my thoughts
Since we last played
Ever since then
You’ve been offline
Sent some texts to calm my fears
Hoping it isn’t true that a human trafficker
Could be you
You could be busy my heart tries to reason
You could’ve forgotten to respond
But that doesn’t stop the thoughts
We’ve been friends for a long time my heart keeps saying
You’ve said multiple times that it isn’t tru...
My head screams no everyday
and I listen, knowing it's true
every once in a while, I doubt it,
but the voice in my head is relentless
on the other hand, my heart
jumps out of my chest.
how is it still doing this?
i don't understand anymore.
it's done it before, way before.
even when I liked other boys.
we were just kids when we met.
first grade if i remember right?
just being together
Picture this, it's decision time boy,
Like choosing between a toy and a ploy.
Your heart's like a cheerleader with pom-poms so bright,
While your head's like a librarian, always so uptight.
Heart says, "Let's party, let's have some fun!
But head's in the corner, saying, "Calm down, everyone."
It's like a comedy show, this constant debate,
Heart wants to dance, while head says, "Wait, wait!"
You Left Me As Child-
In World Too Big and Too Wild-
I Roamed The Streets-
Hoping We Again Would Meet-
You Were Never Impressed With The Things I Could Do-
It Took A While To Realize It Wasn’t Me But You-
Now I’m Grown-
With Babies Of My Own-
I Would Never Do To Them-
What You Felt You Needed To With Your Problem-
Though I’m Not Here To Pen The Blame-
After All Nothing Stays The Same-
Now You ...
Darling I Want Your Love Tonight-
The Two Of Us Sharing The Dark Seems So Right-
I Want To Put My Heart In Your Hands-
So Maybe Me You Will Understand-
Let Us Drink From That Bottle Of Wine-
When We Are Together Everything Is Just Fine-
These Are The Things My Heart Tells Me-
Almost Like It Is Trying To Teach A Newborn Baby-
I Know Something Isn’t Right-
Why Is It We Fight-
Oh Why Do I Find Rea...
Put your hand on my heart
Hear me for what I am
Don’t be scared this time
You are my closest friend
You don’t have to kiss me just yet
Why do you hide your face
Just look through my mask of illusion
And drift to a better place
We come from different worlds
But I keep hearing the same heard line
You think I’m just the material man
Why should you waste your time
Its hard to be true...
I know the heart wants what it wants
But that doesn’t mean it the best
Sometimes the best is not what
The heart wants
But what the head wants
My head tells me to leave you
Let you go
Never look back
My heart says I love you
You’ll be what I need
Everyday it’s a battle between head and heart
It’s a losing battle
Maybe one day
One day soon
It can be
