The Mind Vs The Heart,

Would you allot me a lot in your mind,
To be the sole proprietor of my prospect,
To treat me as you treat yourself,
To protect me as you protect yourself,
To work for my welfare as you work for yours,
To respect me as you respect your mother and sisters,
To love and care as you love and care yourself,
I need a place in your rational mind, not in your heart,
The heart may palpitate to the tunes of the hormones,
Sniff after the hedonistic shelters, leaving the family,
To lose its luster, the children will flutter in fear,
When the hearts are flooded with dirt and debris,
The rational mind never be clouded with haze and pollutants,
As your mind will bring you back to me intact,
After every temptation and fascination that are lot,
I don't need a place in your heart, but in your mind,
to fly over the sky happily to share the life proportionally,
when the love between us, is always kept as constant.

    As love comes from the mind, is of the mind, it also should stay of the mind. Mental love is far superior to physical love.It holds two people connected over worlds apart.It is here that love flows to the heart eternal. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
