Heart And Soul

JUDITH MEADE 1962 (iNDIANAPOLIS)



"I am lost!' said the heart to the soul. "I call to you every night; I don't think she hears me."
"Dear old friend" said the soul "she is afraid!"
"Without me, how does she feel the burning passion when two people touch?" "The tingling from head to toe from a kiss."
"I am lost"
"She is scared that if you come back and you are broken, she is weak."
"I am lost, I want to come back."
"Tears do fall dry as the desert, she is numb," said the soul.
"I have to go; she will awake soon," said the soul.
"I am lost never to be found, goodbye old friend"
