Heart v.s Brain

My mind tells me to follow my heart


but my heart has been broken so much


it tells me to use my brain instead.


My mind is filled with painful memories


that makes my heart full of hatred.


I feel for the next person who tries to get


close to my heart because they have to


get into my mind first.


My heart has a locked gate around it


and my mind is the key. 


Sometimes I just don't want to think


I just want to love.


My heart and my mind are at war.
