30 Days Of Jaye: Melancholy

a divided heart is never

a trusting thing,

you are at war with demons

of your own creating

you are torn between the

potential and what is within

your grasp

such aches encourage and

thrive on sleepless nights,

heartache a companion you

tend to befriend

I have incurred such a task

I have something so wondrous

within my sights,

yet my desires seem to turn

me away from it–

yet I cannot ignore the former…

How can I have a heart of two minds?
