A brain
A brain of almost unlimited capacity
Retention and reaction and rhyme
Of stunning realizations and hypotheses
It tries so hard to figure it all out
Wondering and dissecting
Pulling, tearing into what shouldn’t be
Holding back rarely
Probing into vast fields of pretty scary shit
Linking and tying the unrelated
Not even seeking the outside opinion

The rational mostly

Yet undecided and ridiculous
Not willing to attempt to bring itself
To the conclusion that is true and just
In constant miscommunication with the world outside



It’s should-be partner the heart

Oh how this muscle shakes its non-existent head
Feeling sorry for such wanton disregard
For feeling
For basic emotion and need
No thank you, says the heart
I prefer to let it into me
Instead of keeping it out
Silly gray matter

They cannot agree on their own
So they must be made to
Forcefully, but gently and lovingly
Heart, meet head
There needs to be a middle ground here
That area is me
When I speak or touch
I need both of you
The push and pull
Like the tides, but inside
Where an unbalance could cause
Too much damage
And has
And probably will again

So trust
Work together and never against
And you won’t kill me
