Mind vs. Heart

Mind: It's too early

Heart: The timing's right

Mind: Do you really want to ruin your freindship?

Heart: I'll take a chance

Mind: You don'y really love him that much

Heart: I love him enough

Mind: He's too old for you

Heart: Time matters not compared to love

Mind: You haven't known each other very long

Heart: It was love at first write

Mind: Are you prepared to let yourself get your heart broken...again?

Heart: ....He's worth the pain

Mind: Are you ready?

Heart: Yes...Are you?

    mind and heart...the only problem with that is the heart is more 'felt' than the mind is. that is our downfall (Report) Reply

    the agonizing debates between emotion and rationale is beautifully captured. i think a lot of ppl will be able to relate to this one.

    Mind: Are you ready?
    Heart: Yes...Are you?

    loved these two lines the best. :) (Report) Reply

    Very well written and it makes so much sense, I know I've gone through that same type of process and I bet most people do... (Report) Reply
