Control

I knew at that moment

All I had to do was reach

But my silly mind

Filled me with worries

About how irrational I was being

 

Yet my heart

Brought thoughts to light

That had not been conjured

In a long while

And I almost did

 

Then again my brain

With all its worries

Told me it wouldn't work

That my heart was being dumb

And that I would fail and get hurt in the end

 

My heart withering in its cage

Screamed at me

Promising me happiness

And I rested my hand on the rails

But never opened the lock

 

Until a fellow prisoner spoke

And my brain shrieked and hid

While my heart scolded

"I told you so"

 

I should've trusted it

Because once I did

Things changed

And everything I ever wanted

Was mine for the taking
