My Head Or My Heart - Poem by Brianna Trombley

My heart and my head
Which one shall I follow
The discrepancy between the two
Is hard to swallow

One leads to you
With who im falling in love
The other takes you away
Shattered be our dove

My heart draws me to you
Tells me stop thinking with my head
All the great things you are
And perfect things you’ve said

But certain things you do
Go against all I represent
If I let my head see past that
Myself I would resent

But every time im with you
My heart seems to get its way
I forget the things that taint you
They no longer stand in the way

But I must end this here
Before I get in too deep
For I know my head is right
Only memories of you shall I keep

    This is a familiar battle. Sometimes a strong mind can avoid alot of emotional pain, but just as poigniant you may also avoid pleasure. It is a nice poem that explores this area.10/10 (Report) Reply

    Although I'm a guy, this poem is easily ambiguous. Holds very true. I can sympathize. (Report) Reply
