My Heart Aches For What My Mind Can't Seem To Understand

By theRamoneErika

If we could just forget
Who we were for a moment
And we could just pretend
that all of this never happened

                                                                Where would we go?
                                                                Where would you take me?
                                                                What would I say?
                                                                What would you do?

Unspoken rules
Invisible borders keeping us
on the other side
of reality 

       But we started to forget
       Ignored the rules
       Moved by feelings
       Guided by instincts 

          We all fall down
          It all goes down
          Went up so high
          But it didn't end so well

     Crying for what
     I had
     I thought I had
     I never can have 

And my heart aches for
what my mind can't seem to understand
