Head Versus Heart

My heart says yes,
My head says no.
My head says stop,
My heart says go.

My heart says love,
My head says leave.
My heart says life,
My head says grief.

My heart says hope,
My head forget.
My heart says whoop,
My head regret.

My heart says all,
My head says one.
My heart says more,
My head says none.

My heart seeks heights,
My head craves peace.
My heart bids fight,
My head sighs sleep.

My heart says live,
My head says die.
My heart says live!
My head asks why?

With sharp crossed swords these two contend.
Each strives to gain the upper hand.
They slash and parry, cut and thrust.
Neither does the other trust.

And this fierce contest shall not end,
Until they’re both reduced to dust.
