Do You Speak Without Heart's Counsel?

Poem By Nick Jankowski

You can tell your mind
a thousands time over that
'you don't care, it's ok'
But our fragile hearts
know when they're broken
Your lips speak forgiveness,
but how easy
can a broken heart
really forgive
its breaker?
In your consiousness
you have already forgetten
Yet you wake in
raging fury...
How long
does the heart hold on
even after
you've turned your back?
