The heart fights the mindRun, Oh Heart! Let not the Mind conquer you with the arguments of rational nature.The heart fights the mind by LoverofLight
Free yourself from it's stony grip--it's long, nimble fingers of stoic thought.
My happiness depends on your success.
The Mind rules now and dismisses your opinion coldly and impassively, logically even.
It says it doesn't need you.
Oh Mind, can you not see my pain?
My life has thus been defined by countless passionless decisions.
And yet, I am bound from the decisive outcome of this battle.
I'm a spectator of the greatest battle of my life--the basis of my being.
And yet, I cannot choose a side, though self fights self--the Heart fights the Mind.
I cheer, I plead, I hope for you, Oh Heart, to be the victor.
The Heart struggles and strives in agony for her freedom,
The Mind continues in it's customary, quick and effective attack.
Detached and dispassionate, it moves in for the kill, unmoved by the shudders of the warm Heart.
Heart, please run! Heart, fly!
Surely, if you are to die, I will be taken prison
