WonHundred Word Wednesday: Follow your heart

Here's another week of this awesome challenge! This week's prompt: "That's what happens when you follow your heart."

“Follow your heart,” they said. “It will never lead you astray.”

But mine did, the traitorous thing. It led a mutiny against itself, plunging headlong into the arms of one undeserving. My mind called to it, begging its return to safety, but it would not listen. And I followed along, helpless to its drumming call, deaf to the cries of my neglected instinct.

Now I can see clearly, the haze of blind love removed from my eyes. Regrets fall one on another, eager at last to be heard. For it’s in the quiet that I realize, shattered hearts are silent.

Let me know what you think! And go check out everyone else's responses. Last week's were awesome!
