517 The Heart [29 October 2002]

if a heart is but an organ
destined to always beat
‘til the body is exhausted with living
then explain to me why
it constricts with such pain,
such loneliness and such grief
that no man has ever claimed
he wanted or loved me
how can a simple thing as a heart
with no emotion, feel this as such?
why do I feel such longing
or a pulling towards some man?
it is unexplainable and as it should be
for some things in life
need to remain a mystery
