My Heart – Part 1

My heart was full of love,
And then with sadness,
And that is why I chose to live
With all my madness.

I am trying my best to explain
It all to my heart;
What can you have from me?
Just my sad part.

Oh, my God, don’t ask me
To list all my gains;
All I have to show is just
A broken heart for my pains.

How can I destroy myself
And cause them no grief?
Lead me to death and everlasting sleep
In your warm relief.

The heart of a human
Is like living flesh
With no bone;
Please explain how some people
Can be as hard as any stone.

How can I kill my own heart
And yet still carry on living?
Why can’t I live like people
With no depth of feeling?

About this poem

The boneless tissues of the heart perform the mechanical work of pumpingblood and transmitting emotions and sense to the human body. It remainshumane as long as the soul maintains some contact with the heart. If thesoul remains unconnected the heart is subjected to tempering through evil.Such a heart damages humanity as any stone can break a glass mirror.
