heart and mind

My mind fears for what my heart longs for

and my mind's to blame for all my heart's mistakes

and although childish games were played,

I prayed that you grew,

this constant battle with my fears and dreams

always come down to you,

As much as i swore or acted like we were through,

i can only dream of the day 

when it's just us two.

and when it's all said and done

my mind settles for the battle it hasn't won,

to let go of what we used to be 

is to let go of a special part of me

no i do not wish to rewind time,

for that would meean my heart

fearing for my mind.

I love how you captured the constant mental battle that we all go through after a break up. its a beautiful thing because it is a universal sruggle, yet one that isnt despribed and touched upon enough. loved the lines below because they are exact thoughtsof thoughts that go through everyone's mind and although childish games were played,

"I prayed that you grew,

always come down to you,"
