THE DEATH OF A HUMAN HEART AND OTHER ANATOMICAL POEMS
Part of our Science Creative Literary Symposia.
A human heart shall surely break, by the time it’s worldly and frail.
From an attack, or
An enemy’s deathly siege.
Or from yearning for the embrace of a loved one long past.
But which is worse?
A sudden clogging of the darkened, winding hallways, that snake through one’s host.
Or the deep, electric desire of a soul that you know is forever beyond your reach?
I would choose to perish of heartache no matter my age and health.
You question why?
Because a tear shed for oneself would be the bitterest tear in all the world.
But a tear shed for a friend would be the sweetest.
You are the body’s decision and communication center.
You help the body in many different ways.
I am sending you this letter to tell you how thankful I am.
You are like the fire to my candle
And the light to my path leading to my journey of life.
You look like a colorful,
of lines seeking for a way out.
You are my mind, my touch, my balance, smell, taste, hearing and sight.
You will make big things happen blood,
flow through those arteries and carry energy.
The electricity that is the life of everyone’s soul.
