A Leap In The Dark



The heart

is forever making

the head, look like a fool

it’s a true fact

most choose to listen

with their heart


there is no reason

for the head to dismay

just because the heart has won

after all...

it certainly depends

on what

the winnings are worth.

    The heart rules the love bug in our minds Teddy.


    • Teddy.15

      Thank you dear Andy 🌹

      Good morning Teddy. You’d need a very focused and determined head to overrule the heart. It rarely happens. Heart chooses where love is concerned and wins doesn’t it? Regardless of the consequences. Have a beautiful day Teddy. 🌹

      • Teddy.15

        Well it depends if the love leaves you with a soulmate or heartbreak. Thank you dear Cassie. 🌹

        Having mildly sociopathic (delete – I’m a wee bit antisocial) tendencies It’s always a battle….. but sometimes….😇

          🤣 yucky love, in everyone simply depends if they are happy with their lot, thank you dear Dave, I always look forward to your thoughts. 🌹

          It is true but I usually have heard it the other way that the head makes the heart look like a fool. I think I like it better your way. Nicely penned friend.

          • Teddy.15

            Can be either but the answer will be the same because it's soulmate or heartbreak lol I may have just confused myself.
            thank you dear sorrenbarret 🌹

            a write that asks a question I cannot answer Teddy;

            but it certainly got me thinking.

            • Teddy.15

              Yes dear Melvin, thank you my dear friend. 🌹

            • Thomas W Case

              Yes. It's always that battle. Great work.

              • Teddy.15

                It surely is dear Thomas, thank you Sir. 🌹

                Head or heart, matters not, neither can live without the other. If one loves with the heart or the head is less important than the fact of love.
                A lovely poem to start my reading today, also my favorite subject. it certainly stirs the imagination and causes one to ponder over heart or head. Loved it. - Phil A.

                • Teddy.15

                  Ah yes dear Phil, you truly got it, sometimes I confuse myself and I'm always humbled when someone gets it. Such a lovely review thank you. 🌹

                  The tug on the heart strings resonates in a way that the head cannot resist. Beautifully and eloquently written, accompanied by the perfect pic. Exquisite in every way!

                  • Teddy.15
