battle within

my heart always tells me to give it a try
while my mind tells me he's just another guy

my heart believes I can fly
while my mind can see the truth behind the lie

my heart wants to believe
while my mind wants to protect

    I love this as well. Very well written and shows truth. While our hearts want to believe anything is possible, our minds are the cynical part of us. Good choice of words as well. Hope to see new poetry from you soon. (:

    A nice blend of rhyme and free verse. That old conflict of head and heart...we all walk that tightrope at some time, I think. A pleasing little poem. Well done. Regards, Robert.
