Oops! Heart Did It Again©

Heart did it again

Totally eclipsed the brain

Went against head’s caution

Threw reason out the window

Kicked rationale out the door

Allowed herself to believe yet another lie

Really, was it another or just the same ol’ line

Brain saw it a mile away for what it really was

Red-flashing warnings of caution, ignored all of them she did

Headlong into heartbreak seeing only what she wanted

Believing a line as old as time

Love is truly truly blind

Now she’s once again shattered

Tiny pieces here and there

Causing lungs to work over time




Oops … heart did it again

  2. Sometimes we have to loosen our control over our hearts/emotions. In my language there’s a famous verse;
    It’s good that mind guards the heart
    But sometimes, let it go free.
