Here is a poem that I wrote when I was much younger. It is one of my favorites, so much so, that I named my poetry book after it. I published my first book about 2 years ago. It is filled with all the poetry I’ve written throughout my life. If you love this poem, as some of the other poetry I’ve posted on this site, you can purchase my book through Amazon.com. I will post the link at the bottom.
HEART VERSUS MIND
My mind can’t understand why
My heart just can’t let go
Of a love that it once felt
So very long ago
Your name is etched within my heart
All it sees is you
All it can remember
Is that our love was once so true
In the middle of the night
My heart doesn’t sleep it seems
It’s the one who calls your name
In the midst of all my dreams
If only I could make it realize
That you don’t really care
But it seems my heart is too afraid
To take that crazy dare
On the other hand my mind is smart
It knows just what to do
It realizes that after all this time
I don’t stand a chance with you
I’ve cried myself to sleep t night
Confused as I could be
Longing to know the answer to
“Do you think he’ll ever love me?”
My heart and mind battle it out
To see which one is right
But somehow it always seems to be
It’s my heart that wins the fight
It keeps saying that I’ll win you back
Only time can reveal
The future that lies ahead of us
And what you truly feel
If the battle does continue
And my mind should come to win
It would surely tell my heart
How foolish it has been
The heart still believes in you and me
The mind just can’t grasp why
I guess the heart will always feel
Our love’s worth one more try

Thank you Kristin. I’m pretty much an open book as is. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!
What a great example of a struggle to feel loved! I enjoy writing poetry, too. It’s like a work of art when you capture the angst of the moment.
Thank you Susan. I’m one who is woken up in the middle of the night with lyrical poetry running through my head. I’ve lost a lot for the desire to sleep as I’ve gotten older but writing ANYTHING will always be my passion. Glad to hear it is for you too. What is your favorite style of poetry to write? Do you have a blog or link to share her? If so, feel free.
