hope is the thing with lead feet.

September 7, 2008 at 12:55 am (Uncategorized)

brain and heart
no longer friends
but enemies
of the mortal sort.

why should they
get along, really,
when the one
that thinks
cannot feel
and the one
that feels
cannot think.

so tired of
the
discombobulation
that occurs when
both opine,
yet painfully aware
that neither can
be amputated.

life goes on
with each
waging war on the
other,
praying for a compromise.
or at the very least,
a truce.

but no.
they fight,
until one surrenders,
leaving the owner
with the
unbearable likelihood
of desolation
or the inevitable
lifetime of loneliness.
