    Dear Heart

    Why is it that the heart never does what the mind tells it to do?
    It' goes it's own way most of the time loving who you don't want it to
    It makes foolish moves, causing itself pain
    Blocking out the screaming warnings of the brain

    I'ts self centered never listening to reason, not caring what the consequences may be
    Though sometimes seeing things that the mind can't see

    It can be strong as steel and fragile as glass
    Feeling beautiful, fantastic and wonderful one minute and shatter into a million pieces in the next making wounds that last

    Memories of the heart never go away because in time the wounds may heal but the scars are there to stay

    "It' goes it's own way most of the time loving who you don't want it to

    This one could have been about my own foolish heart. Nice piece here.
