What is the allure of a love forbidden?
What makes a love so driven?

What causes a heart to be weak and yearn?
For, lives love lessons, we're supposed learn.

I've always been strong, tried to do what's right.
But, have fought feelings of you with all my might.

The mind does not accept what the heart does feel.
Standing next to you does send my senses to reel.

The logic of this is more than I can take.
My bodies' betraying my mind, it must be a mistake!

My eyes see you, palms clammy, heart beats faster.
My heart has declared war with my head, disaster!

What is my heart telling me that I can not see?
And perhaps this is life's lesson for me.

Head and heart finally agree to disagree.
Is it part of human nature or human fraility?

And finally heart and head are one in bitter happiness.
They both want what they can not possess.

Amen, Gemini!  We always seem to want what we can't have or what we know we shouldn't have.  Either way, it's a painful place to be.  One has to be strong enough to discern between what we need and what we want.  And many times they are indeed in direct conflict.  Nice work.

Gemini~
i LOVED this. you must be in my
head these days lol. you summed up
quite how i feel at times about a
special someone in my life. i say just
go with what's in the heart and let
the rest go...enjoy the moment. but i
always was a fool. lol. take care.

Yes Gem I know this feeling too. Often the things we want the most are not what is best for us. It is hard to accept sometimes, but there is always something better to come...

Reminds me of the old Eddy Arnold song:

You give your hand to me
and then you say hello
well I can hardly speak
my heart is beating so.
and anyone can tell
you think you know me well
but you don't know me.

No you don't know the one
who dreams of you each night
who longs to kiss your lips
who longs to hold you tight
to you I'm just a friend
and that's all it's ever been
but you don't know me.

You give your hand to me
and then you say goodbye
I see you walk away
with that lucky guy
To never never know
the one who loves you so
because you don't know me.

sorry to go on so - it's a very nice poem..

Sigmund Freud:  Thank you for responding to my poem, let me know when I can lay on your couch and I will tell you all about my dreams!  Be sure to have a full day set aside, it might take a while.

sea_of_okc:  I learned a variation of: If you love something set it free...it will come back to you in some form or another, I hold on to that hope and dream.  Thank you for responding.

ethome: Thank you for your kind words.  But, I knew him well, and even though words can't tell, sometimes I think I just plain loved him too much.

Aimster:  I didn't mean to overlook your kind words, thank you for sharing that you experience those same feelings, and believe me, my fool hardy heart has also had its moments.
