Heart and Mind

is that all it was
at first I did not expect
even that
my heart betrayed
what my mind stored
in its most secret depths
concealed from me
I cared
more than I thought possible
now I am trying
to sort the confusion
my heart
and my mind created
nothing seems right anymore
not since we parted
I feel more alone
than ever before
and I really don't know
what I should do
which I should believe
the heart
or the mind
my heart
often gets me into trouble
and my mind
doesn't let me know
until it is too late
is it too late
