Return ticket

My heart and my head are at war.
My head whispers, no more.
It is inevitable,
no matter how delectable.
There is no way it is meant to last,
but my heart still beats too fast.

I have a return ticket to Love.

    Just lovely Johann! The last line is the punch line - it sums up the poem very well. Nice!
