My Heart Versus My Mind

by Phronesus Disegno

Age Group: Adult

So what the hell do I do now
With the one, NO TWO, who do?
The one who dumped my *ss
And the other who means, I love you?

Oh, with logic the answer is simple
But with feelings it's not the same
Who has seen me though it all?
And who has laid all the blame?

Loving two, for different reasons
Loving two, without any shame
For honesty has prevailed
And NO ONE is left to blame

The advice from my favorite Witch
She has given from the very start
Put logic aside for a change,
And for once, listen to your heart!

Well my heart says burn NO bridges
And my Heart says there is always hope
And my Heart says give another chance
And my Heart is what helps me cope...

Well for once it is not about that,
Nor my mind to interfere!
Whether HEART or MIND it may be
What I have, is the NOW, and the HERE.

I Know what the Hell to do now.
With the ONE, not two, who do,
I've been dumped, that's the way it goes...
But there's one who says, "I love you."

Then again, I have set this up
For my heart is actually frail
Finding love with both heart and mind,
I have not set myself up to fail.

Author's Notes: Don't get me wrong. No decisions are weighed lightly. I mean, a husband, AND a boyfriend? Even I myself wondered about that. But then I wondered, why a boyfriend if I already had a husband? The answer is obvious. I'm not going to tell you why. But what I will tell you is, I only need one true love in my life at one time. I need what I need. I don't need what I'm already getting. The rest is for me to figure out on my own. And by the way, isn't it said that things always work out for the better? Isn't it said that you always find out the reason why at some later point? Fine. I was dumped. His reason? We didn't like to do the same things. He went on a vacation, and left me behind. Shall I raise HELL? Nah. There is someone else who wouldn't treat me that way. He is my boyfriend, and my soulmate at the same time. None of any of this would have happened if I had met my boyfriend first... however, that is not the case, so that is not worth hypothesising about.

I take care of myself. The breakup with the husband, I knew this day would come. Unfortunately, my best friends in the world knew it before I did. I do not need to be rescued... but then again, someone else has loved me. No lies. No deception. I had who I thought was a husband, who in the end was not.

But you know what? I'd rather be loved. And I am. Someone else has been who I would have been in the same situation. Someone else cared enough. Someone else has felt the pain of loss one too many times, and now there is nothing left but to just "TRY" to be one's best, to give what one has, and by any higher power you like, for once I am not quite as alone as I thought. And it's because it was just meant to be that way.

Sometimes from the very beginning, and with experience, you just "know". With sadness of my breakup and with happiness of someone who has loved me "ANYWAY", I respectfully assert that my experience is true. Well, for me it is. You just "know". But may I add, you also know "why". A time limit may be imposed on relationships, but you can never un-love someone you have loved. Time is more powerful than I am. But then again, fate is not. Fate is very interesting... but then again, so am I. I shake hands with fate. But other times, I slap her in the face for being so damn presumptuous. As the song says, "some say I should not tempt fate; I say fate should not tempt me."

And I wouldn't have it any other way.
