Tell Me How
You know how much I love you
heart and mind fully agree as I do
but now, this is making me blue
I can't understand myself too.
It feels so great just talking with you
your presence eliminate shades of blue
in my world, all that matter is you
but your silence gives an impending due.
Everyday I long to hear your voice
though I know it's a one-sided choice
assertion neither makes my heart rejoice
while my mind do every annoying noise.
My heart and mind are warring inside
the physical stress I could no longer hide
so I give moments to weigh both sides
and compromise the erring feelings to subside.
Heart says I should wait, alright
for circumstances at times are tight
but mind disagrees with all its might
seemingly baiting to fish a fight.
Heart persists on love and affection
balancing pains in sweet compassion
mind insists it's a form of rejection
otherwise, there is always a solution.
What they argue is the silence in you
filling the gap you promised, didn't come true
my body is helpless pacifying these two
whom shall I believe? Please, tell me what to do.
