About the Poem

This poem was written after a fight with someone whom I love very much. I was hurt and trying to decide whether to end the relationship; this was the inner battle I had with myself.

A Few Visitor Comments

This poem really touched me cuz I just got in a big fight and I don't know what's gonna happen between us.
This poem is great. It is true, to battle your heart when you love someone is unbearable. You want to leave but your heart won't let you say the words.
Wow, that is one of the best poems I have ever read. Trust me, people out there feel the same as you do.
this poem describes me exactly. Great poem

The Fight

As I sit here listening
To the fight going on
Between my head and my heart
I feel numb inside.
My head says "I'm a fool;"
My heart says, "But you
Love him so."
My head says "He will
Hurt you again."
My heart answers, "But
He also makes me happy."
My head says, "Look at
All the tears he
Made you cry."
My heart answers, "Yes,
But he also gives
Me pleasure."
My head says, "You
Are strong and can
Get over him."
My heart answers,
"He makes me feel
Alive and whole."
I need him and
I love him. Without
Him I would only
Be existing.
I slowly shake my
Head, "No," knowing
My heart has won once

This is wonderful it cuts right inside and says it in way unexpressable.
I just want to say this is a very good poem.
Such a true statement! The fight continues within each and every person who is in love; no matter what they may say. People feel so complete in any relationship, and they forget what truly makes them happy.
I loved it
It's not easy to portray that sense of grief and confusion through words...
