Happy Valentine’s Day

heartSkin not only covers our polluting and oozing innards but also allows us the illusion that the heart can be a seat of love and courage rather than just a pulsing slithery organ.

One thought on “Happy Valentine’s Day

  1. Perhaps you are just an organ,
    that has evolved over time,
    no different than snake’s scaly skin,
    or an eloquently stated rhyme.

    As for me I choose to see,
    form and function true;
    I’d be dead, no blood to head,
    dear heart, for lack of you.

    But answer this: If all you do
    is pulse both day and night,
    why this volcanic chest pain,
    which erupts in love’s dark light?
