Roots and Wings

My mind demands to be rooted    
My heart lusts for wings
Timelessly, bewilderingly,  
†mediating their differences of opinion. †  
†  
Mind said, †  
donít do it. †  
You know his type, †
heartbreak is inevitable. †
Youíre smarter than that. †
Heís not the one †
†  
Heart said, †  
Come on †  
Love is risk. †
Take a chance. †
Your heart is stronger than you realize. †  
He could be the one... †
†  
Mind said, †
Youíve wasted enough energy in unhealthy, †
dead end relationships. †
You donít have time to waste. †
†  
Heart said, †  
You wasted enough time in loveless, †  
one sided relationship. †  
You donít have love to waste. †  
†  
I leapt... †
†  
Fell.... †
†  
Crashed.... †
†  
Burned.... †
†  
Survived, barely.... †
†  
When all was said and done, †
I lay on the bed. †  
Reflecting upon the wreckage †  
Reminiscing the magic †  
†  
Peering over at mind, †
Shivering, balled up, † †
in the corner. †
Having been shaken, †  
manipulated, †  
tormented, and terrified. †  
Never again, †  
please.... †
she begs. †  
†  
Heart, walks towards the bed, †  
bleeding, scarred, †
dragged through hell. †  
Exhaustedly, wistfully, †  
falls back on to the bed †  
Worth it, she sighs. †  
letís try again.... †  
†  
As we approach the door, †
Ready to face another day, †
I hesitate... †
†  
Mind assures, †  
Donít worry, weíve got this. †
Weíre wiser this time... †
†  
Heart encourages, †
Baby girl, †  
thereís a lost, † †
heartbroken soul, †
longing for the half that makes him whole. †
Do you really want to keep him waiting?Ē †  
†  
The three of us †
walk out the front door. †
Stepping into the big scary world, †  
hand in hand, †
Full of †  
Hope †  
Courage †
And never looking back...
