Troubled Love

"Listen to your heart", I've heard before

But what happens when your heart says listen to your head?

Some things need another perspective

`

So I listen to my heart, to listen to my head

It says, Don't take chances with your life

It says, No matter how wrong it seems, it's right

Keep it cool

Keep it cool. Keep it cool. Keep it cool.

`

So I live not knowing what this love could be

Wondering, Can I find another love to set this garcon free?

Love is cruel.

Love is cruel. Love is cruel. Love is cruel.

`

It's not enough to go on ignoring

Pretending is a rocky stream.

`

Somehow I know I get on by

About Woe

Words are our outright melody and no one else is going to play the songs you feel but yourself. Let me be more esoteric....just kidding. You may ask when reading my poetry, why do I use metaphors so often? After thinking that through, I honestly don't know why. My guess would be that language, though freeing, can also be restrictive. Especially in terms of expressing ourselves in attempt to understand ourselves. I, personally, get stuck in gears sometimes and I like to expand and break through traditional understanding of the concept at hand. I like to read what I'm feeling in different forms, and see if the language can lossen up more.
