You

“Go where your heart

brings you the greatest joy,” they said.

I did.

But it brought me

the greatest pain instead.

Now

I can’t find joy nor pain.

I lost you.

In my 

Memory.

    Our heart speaks another language that our brain does, unfortunately. That was really beautiful.

    Ouch! Getting the heart and mind together is next to impossible, I guess. This is so filled with raw emotions beautifully written.

    Poignant and direct. Sometimes people and parts of life are both joy and pain. Its that mix that makes the good so good and the bad so bad. Its difficult for anyone to maintain that happy medium for any length of time I think. Nice write 🙂

  11. If you follow your gut instincts instead of your heart, then may be the pain can be avoided, but this is of course less poetical.

    but the brain knows the best route to get there! 🙂 💜 Jackie@KWH
