Sometime love is blind

Or do we just avoid its truth

Not wanting to be alone

Has more to do with me than you

Sometimes love is blind

Or is it our perception that is untrue

Because some use love as a ruse

Sometimes love is blind

Or was it lust and you got confused

Both can look quite the same but you must determine between the two

Sometime love is blind

Or do you need to know how to

Determine one’s intentions when it comes to loving you

Sometime love is blind

Actually that statement is not true

Love is the greatest feeling

But love must first come from within you

POETRY: Heart vs Mind

My heart always leads me one way

My mind is usually on the other side

My heart is on fire

My mind is more mild

At times I can’t get them on the same page

Neither one want to take a bow

My heart dives in full circle

My mind wants to take caution to the wind

My heart gets down deep and full of emotion

My mind wants to think through the ration of a thing

My heart will always drive a hard bargain

My mind just wants to smile

The only thing they do together

Is make up the best parts of me

POETRY: Heartbeat

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They tell me what to be cautious of,

And if what I’m feeling is real,

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They warn me when I’m going to fast,

And help me keep my feet when I need to be still,

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They beat fast in anticipation of possibilities that are near,

But they are slow and steady when I just need to hear,

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They guide me because I trust them,

And I listen to push out the fear
