My Heart and My Brain

There is a disconnect between my heart and my brain

Like a highly religious, married couple who hate each other

And stopped keeping track of their anniversaries years ago

But will never approve of the idea of divorce

Bickering every sunrise, the moment I open my eyes

Never can they compromise on any single topic

Forced to live in the same home of flesh and bones

That continues to decay around them as they sleep every night in separate rooms

    As the metaphorical child of this heart/brain couple, which parent do you tend to side with?

    It was my brain for the longest time but my heart has been much louder these past few years

    Interesting post. I’m wondering: What do your heart and brain agree on? In considering that question for myself, they both want what’s best for me, but sometimes disagree on what’s best. Sometimes one compromises more than the other. The pendulum shifts back and forth, but they have learned to get along most of the time. I’m reminded of the saying: “Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.”
