mind the heart

I've loved.

I've loved and lost.

But it's better to love then lost, rather than not loving at all.

Better to fall, and call for help rather than not try. 

to cry about lies told to you is better than being truthful by yourself.

to be with someone who makes you unhappy is better than being alone joyful. 

to my understanding. 

thats how it works.

we want to be held, feel wanted, feel needed by someone. 

if not then what are we doing?

why be here?

why get the courage to walk up to someone and tell them they're "beautiful" if you didnt want to take that next step, that next leap?

why bother?

understanding the mind is never the same as understanding the heart.

they are two different learning principles. 

the mind is more alert,

more aware, more realisitc.

while the heart is oblivious , adventureous,

creative, gullible.

the heart wants what the mind doesn't.

and thats ok right ?

its ok to take risks 

and chances.

i'll take my chances

ill take a risk, cause honestly

what have you got to lose?
