This Heart


this heart churns love
this heart brews hatred
this heart houses my passions
my passions share a room with my disinterests
this heart manufactures aspirations
and later decides to go against them
this heart admires
this heart chastises
this heart misses you
and this very heart avoids letting that show
this heart longs for you
yet it doesn't want to be broken by you
this heart is a superwoman
juggling between east and west,
what's right and what's wrong,
reality and fantasies
and puts it all in perfect balance

    Impassioned, and poignant work, young lady.Your choice not to employ stanzaec stucture works well here, as you negotiate each line, smoothly, & mellifluously
    in cascade.Solid crafting, Stella.
