*all About The Heart - Poem by Jim Norausky

All the emotions of my heart

broken, fleeting, hopeful, sad

loving, happy, waiting, jilted,

deceitful, sentimental, hidden

sent to you in poems

is not really coming from the heart

but from the limbic system in the brain

where emotions are translated into

little electrical impulses

on the soul's hard drive.

So why do I feel much more in love

saying that my heart yearns for you

rather than offering electrical stimuli

pulsing somewhere in the outer cortex?

    I love the reference to the souls' hard-drive. A brilliant way of looking at emotions and showing us that true emotions - like true love - are from the heart and not from our brains which are no more than highly evolved organic computers. It could be argued that the capacity to feel 'heart' love is the essence of our humanity. Brilliantly concieved piece, Jim. Bravo! (Report)Reply
