Heartfelt verses to sweeten your Sunday!
Hearing the Heart
The Heart and the Head are sometimes at odds,
But the Heart wields the ultimate power.
It is the Heart that has a mind of its own; not in my control,
My Heart: a field of pure love than emanates towards you.
All housed in a squidgy mass of pulsating muscle,
Keeping me alive, yet drawing me to you, like a magnet,
Encompassing everything it means to be human.
An eternal passion pumps and swirls within its red chambers,
Forcing blood through my veins; expressing my soul,
Its true purpose is giving meaning to the biology of existence.
Without a heart we would be mere machines,
Alive, but not living, not in love with life.
And in giving new hearts life, it burgeons with joy,
Connected hearts are the music of the cosmos.
My Heart is strong and resilient, driving gallons of crimson fuel,
But the paradox remains: it is also fragile.
It can shatter into a million pieces and still breathe life,
But the shards stab with a pain not of this world.
I listen, but I must also hear…
The message is clear. Without love, I cannot live.
