My Mind vs. My Heart

If my heart is hot,
My mind is cold.
If my heart is shy,
My mind is bold.

My mind and my heart
Are one another's foes,
They fight and argue,
Even at the lowest lows.

My heart is what flutters
When a boy says my name.
My mind shakes his head,
Disapproving, it's just a game.

My heart reassures me
Everything will be okay.
My mind is what warns me
He's not gunna stay.

Lately my mind
Won't listen to my heart.
It's afraid this new guy
Is just a work of art.

To love him or not
They'll never quite agree.
But maybe, in time,
My heart will be set free.

I love it! I'm going through the same thing (which sucks) and know exactly how you felt when you wrote this. :) 

Can you read some of my work? I would really love your opinion on them! Thanks! :)
