Logical Dreamer

I waste my days writing up sonnets
Dreaming of a time better past
Dreaming of a future never come
Fantasizing
Imagining
Something that will never be

I was born to write poetry
Filled with a mournful sorrow
Happiness amounts to nothing

My heart will always be the dreamer
My mind the realist

Always telling the truth
Always scolding me to study:
The Art of Logic
Of Rhetoric too
Of Science and Math
But never of the arts

But I pay no heed
I instead waste away
Writing the whispers of a cloud
On a cloudless day

Conflict of Existence

When it comes to love
And you feel the walls shatter
And the laughter resound and reverberate throughout your whole body
Let the idealist lead and the realist govern

“Control”
“Relax”
They tell you
“They are chemicals
Giving way to chemicals
Controlled by electrical impulses
Take your place
Control this urge to destroy
Capture this conflict
That colours your world”

“Where did all the Passion go?
The lingering bliss?”

“Just a novelty
Ordinary, so ordinary
Don’t bother to look
To try
To think
Or to feel”

I will never forgive you
Or forget my dreams
What I truly see is what I cannot have
Do not try to be happy

Love’s Pain Misunderstood

You will never know or understand how much you hurt me
Never in my life has my heart ached this much

Please just let me go
I don’t want to keep chasing this dream
To keep chasing this shadow suspended on dust

I’m still writing poetry
And dreaming of you

And though you still make me happy
The happiness is short lived
Because I know
That you do not prefer me

The realist fights the idealist
The idealist wants to win
Wants to disregard the realist
The idealist has always been stronger
Hope has always been stronger
But the realist is right

The idealist only prevails in the realm of my imagination
Only there are stories born
The realist has always been second
Until now

When it comes to love
The idealist leads
But the realist governs

There are still questions in my mind
I know I cannot love you
But yet I still do
My heart goes against all reason
My mind wants us to be friends
I don’t want you to misunderstand

You make me over think
Every action I wish to take
My intentions are pure
Untainted by experience
But I know how human nature works
I know how my mind works
And I am afraid you will think my intentions wrong

A simple question
The want to have lunch
Or a coffee
Or maybe frozen yogurt

Maybe it’s just easier if you read this poem
Maybe I should just write you a poem
