The Mind's BaneIf the star-crossed lovers had not died,
Would they still have loved forever?
If Titanic hadn't found the tide,
Would the two have stayed together?
Love isn't what we see it as,
The blessing we assume;
The stories aren't so beautiful,
Just like the rose in bloom.
Love can crush our hearts and build our walls,
And close us off to others;
It hurts like hell, and wounds like knives,
And takes a lifetime to recover.

In hopes life will get brighter.
Yet I'd be lying if I said I wasn't guilty too,
And my heart were not as chained;
As surely as I yearn for you,
The heart is the mind's bane.

The difference between rejoicing and smiling weakly because he’s okay or carrying your father’s American-flag-covered-casket and watchin
