Can't Let Go

When I'm with you,
All these confusing feelings
Well up inside of me.
It hurts to be around you,
Because I care for you so much
And you don't feel the same way.
It hurts when we're apart,
Because you somehow make my life
Brighter each day.
I feel trapped: I
Feel pain whenever you're near,
But when I'm alone I feel
As if I've lost my best friend.
I don't know what to do,
And it's driving me crazy.
I try to sort it out in my head,
But nothing seems to make sense.
I don't understand why
I feel as I do,
But I can't seem to get past it.
My head says to forget about it,
But my heart just won't let go.
The question is
Do I follow my head
And just ignore the pain,
Or do I follow my heart
And embrace the swirl of my emotions.
