Farewell

My brain knows i should not do it
My heart fights another day
But every road leads me to it
Like no love could make me stay

My brain knows i should stop thinking
My heart knows you should suffice
But every thought has got me sinking
And never somewhere that is nice

My brain knows i should surrender
My heart knows there is no cure
I was made of things so tender
That would mix with the impure

My brain knows it is consumed
My heart knows my days are gone
They keep opening this wound
Every day, every dawn

So farewell to all the doubting
I can't bare the doubt no more
No longer will i be fighting
I confess I've lost the war

They can't pull me down no longer
When i grab their hand by choice
I am sorry they were stronger
Than my will to rejoice

So much sadness but so beautifully written. Sometimes when our hearts are broken they tell our brains how to express the pain we feel in our brokenness. That?s how poetry like this one is created.
